Granite Bay Home Buyer
I am currently working with a Granite Bay Home Buyer who is an investor, Matt. Matt has graciously offered to write an article on Sacramento Real Estate Voice to you.
It is nice to hear the perspective from the eyes of a current Granite Bay Home Buyer. Thank you Matt, for taking the time to share and help other Home Buyers.
Home Buyer’s Experience
Now, I would like to introduce…Home Buyer, Matt Teiken…
Hi, my name is Matt Teiken and I would like to share my First Time Home Buying experience with you. Until just recently I have been waiting around to hear back on a short sale I placed an offer on. This process had been dragging on for three weeks and I was running out of patience, and second-guessing myself on the deal in the first place.
It was at this time that I did a search for Real Estate information on the Internet, and came across Gena’s blog. Gena’s writings struck a chord with me and I decided to ask her to look for property. Gena was very responsive and was able to show me properties on very short notice.
This was not the case with my previous agent, who had me searching the MLS myself, didn’t give me the personal attention I need, and wasn’t flexible with regard to showing homes.
I noticed a new MLS listing that seemed almost too good to be true, and I told Gena I needed to see it right away. She met me at the property and after looking at it I decided to make an offer. Gena asked if I had someone working on my loan and I did; but mentioned that she had a good loan guy. I ignored the suggestion and later that night when Gena was about to send the offer, she noticed that the guy I was working with didn’t give me a proper pre-approval and that there were discrepancies in the document as well.
I called my guy, who I was referred to through a friend, and he said he would get to me in the morning. I called Gena back and asked if her loan guy was available, and she called him up. Even though it was 9 pm, within fifteen minutes I was on the phone with him. He pre-approved me and even called the listing agent to brag about how strong of an applicant I was. The next day my offer was accepted after my interview process.
I am impressed with Gena and also it goes without saying, “birds of a feather flock together.”
Thank you, Matt.
This article, I hope helps other Granite Bay Home Buyers or any home buyer see the importance of having an experienced Realtor who can help the Home Buyer with the entire process of home buying. Now, let’s get ready for your home inspection on your new house in Granite Bay.
Bad mortgage loans are loans the home buyer is stuck with for a long time and can cost the home buyer a lot of money. We see the results of that right now, with the short sales on the market.
Experienced Realtors have and know good professional Lenders who will listen to the home buyer and offer the right loan package for the home buyer’s specific real estate needs. Not all loans fit everyone’s needs. You need someone that will listen to you.
As I always say…Experience Doesn’t Cost More…It Pays!
