Sometimes jumping on the right house at the right time takes skill and determination while other times being patient and waiting for the right house to come along can take the same amount of self-control and perseverance. This was the case for Claudia and her family. They found a neighborhood in Tigard that they really wanted to live and yet no homes were currently available. This means that when a property hits the market, they had to be ready to go.
I first started talking with Claudia and her family about getting preapproved for a home loan. By doing this, they are setting themselves up for an immediate offer should the time come. Claudia worked with some local lenders and was approved and was issued a preapproval letter. This letter states that the buyer is approved up to a certain amount taking the guesswork off the table for any seller there submitting an offer to. Sellers know that the buyers have done their financial homework and are ready to buy this property.
We talked about freezing all spending and loan applications until after the property closed, which was quite a feat for this family since it took several months between the time they were approved to the time actually found a house.
"Thanks to Marcus we were able to patiently wait for the best house in the neighborhood that we wanted to live in. He gave us great advice and we really appreciated his honesty when it came to the whole process of buying a home. We saw many houses and he would always give us his honest opinion on each one. He did not rush us into a transaction and was always very patient answering all our questions. I have already recommended him as a realtor to friends and family, and would not doubt seeking his services in a future transaction." - Claudia
Again, sums transactions and real estate deals need a quick and immediate response while others wait patiently for the right property to hit the market. This means that not only the clients need to be ready to jump at a moments notice but that I do as well. I am monitoring the market every single day to find the right property at the right price. We were able to get in, make an offer on a home, and close within 25 days. Patience and perseverance certainly paid off for this family and I am so excited that they are finally in the home of their dreams.
If you're ready to find the home of your dreams, give me a call today. If there's a specific neighborhood or community that you are interested in, I can send you listings and updates as soon as they hit the market. I look forward to speaking with you today.
