Just Because You CAN Buy A $250,000 Home Doesn't Mean You HAVE To.

By
Real Estate Agent with Century 21 Bradley (260)704-0843

 

I got a call from a family that was fired up and ready to go!  They were so excited to start looking at homes in the Aboite area in South West Fort Wayne.  

The husband had just gotten a promotion, and they were ready to stop renting and buy!  YES!  

They were pre-approved for around $250,000.  That's a lot of house in the Fort Wayne real estate market.  They sent me a list of homes that they wanted to see.  All of them were close to that $250,000 mark.  

But here's the thing.  They were looking at new construction homes in a certain subdivision.  I knew of a few other subdivisions that were 5-12 years old that had similar homes, similar sized lots, and that were closer to the $200,000 price point.  

I went ahead and sent them over the lower priced listings, and they loved them!  We went out, found the perfect home, and they saved a lot of money.  They thanked me for being straight with them and helping them see that just because they CAN buy a home at the top of their price point, they didn't have to.

Thats why a homebuyer needs a great agent or team like you. They think they know what they want and its your job to show them the options from there. Great job Christiansen Team.

One of the first questions I ask a potential Buyer/Borrower: What payment will you be comfortable with.  It doesnt matter what I can approve them for, what really matters is if they will be happy when they write out that check!  There is SO much more than "you qualify for X"

That's so important for folks to know they don't have spend what they qualify for to find a house that will work they might love.

Great job, Christiansen Team!  With your help, your buyers found a house they love -- and now they have money left over for new furniture, shoes, or whatever they want :)
