One Thursday after work, my mom and I drove around "window shopping" at some of the houses/townhouses that I liked online. It's surprising how many real estate agents, don't call interested buyers back. This is how I found my agent. He was and is the only agent to call me back! I loved that he changed his voicemail daily to let you know his schedule. We met Saturday afternoon to discuss what I was looking for and shortly there after I fell in love with my first place!
That's right I saw it and immediately fell in love with the first place I stepped foot into! Now, I did look at another place for comparison but it didn't really compare. Did I mention that just 45 minutes earlier I let my agent, Dan, know that I am probably the most commitment phobic person he will ever meet? I had to eat my words, because I desperately wanted the house.
After a few rounds of negotiating, a successful inspection, and appraisal I should be a homeowner by the end of the month!
Here's a sneak peak of my soon to be First Place!
