My first homebuyer experience Molded me to become the best agent to advocate for you!
I was a young new staff sergeant stationed here at Fort Carson. I did what most do and asked my Army buddy who he used to buy a home with. He gladly gave me the number to the agent he used. I called her up and set a meeting to start the process. We met at the office, signed an agreement and got pre-qualified. I was qualified up to $195,000. I informed her that I would like to start at a lower price to try to get a more affordable payment and move up in price if we couldn’t find something we liked. When she took us around, the first house we went to was listed at $194,900, so the top of my limit. We, of course, loved it as it was remodeled and updated. I know now once you see the nicer and more expensive home its almost impossible to go for something more affordable. Then we went to see more homes priced at about $20,000 lower and a little dated. After looking at about 20 homes, We chose the first one we saw because it was much nicer than anything else she showed us. My point is I wanted to get something affordable in case I got into trouble down the road. It seemed as though my agent, just wanted to sell me something at the maximum amount I was qualified for to maximize her commission.
Also, we did our final walk through about 2 days before closing and my inspection items had not yet been completed. She encouraged me to go to closing and said it can be fixed after closing. She only made phone calls when I said I guess we just won’t go to closing then. This was supposed to be my agent fighting for me and instead, I had to fight for myself.
After I decided to leave active duty and join the Colorado guard, I headed into the civilian world where I did fall on hard times. I ended up having to short sale my home because I could not afford the payments. I could not sell then due to market conditions. Pink Realty was also my saving grace as they successfully negotiated the short sale for me.
The reason I tell this story is because I refuse to be like my first agent. If you hire me, I work for YOU, and I advocate for YOU. This is a big decision to make in anyone’s life. I want to be the one who helps you make the right decision for you. It’ not about me it’s about YOU.
