Philadelphia Real Estate Helpful News and Views : How to Find That Perfect Home at the Perfect Price

How to Find That Perfect Home at the Perfect Price

 helpfulhannahs.com

 

Have you been looking for that perfect house? Afraid to make the commitment. Always finding something wrong. Maybe the walk to the property is too far maybe you just don't have that feeling. That is what happened to this couple I was working with. We were looking for almost two years.

 

There was one property we did make an offer on but to be honest I really felt it was overpriced. They did also and we passed on the counter-offer. The development they are looking in has become more popular than when they started looking. These properties are now selling over asking price. 

 

Every time a property came up for sale I called them and we would look at the new listing. There was always an objection. After all, they would say we have a place to live we are not going to settle. I felt as if they were my hobby.

 

Suddenly a listing came up that I thought might be perfect for them. I called made an appointment to show. They liked it. I explained the last house went  $10,000 over asking They would have to be serious with their offer or they would lose it. It would still be less money than the property we passed on. They knew it was true because I showed them the property 

 

The buyers made an offer well over the asking price. They were in competition with other buyers. My buyer's offer was accepted. They knew this was the place they were waiting for. It was not perfect but they had that feeling inside that this was the one and they were very happy 

 

Love was in the air as this happened on Valentines Day.

Hannah Williams - "Love is in the air," and Love is patient. I can tell by your story you love what you do. You treat your clients with respect and you have the patience to wait, under hours of deliberation, for the house that they feel is perfect for them.

Congratulations on getting them through to the finish line! I am certain they are very grateful.

Congratulations to you and your buyers - the perfect house was as patient for them as they were for it!

Good moring, Hannah. I always tell my buyers that "there is always a door with your name on it. We just have to be diligent about finding it." And when they find the door with their name on it, price becomes less of an issue.

Hannah, some buyers THINK they will find the perfect home, but there most likely will need to be some concessions made!

Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP  I really felt bad that they lost the first place. This place just was not worth the money but with cash buyers, the sellers  felt they could get what they wanted and they did. So I hung in there with them 

Debe Maxwell, CRS May wonders never cease I am so happy for them 

Endre Barath, Jr.  I like those instructions very much - Good Thinking 

Thank you for your professional input

Nina Hollander  To be honest 34 years and it has never taken me this long to find that house with their name on it.  There were times that I thought they were just looking and they knew I felt that was. We have become dear friends.I will miss showing them houses.  

Thank you for your professional input

Barbara Todaro  When buyers are loyal then I will be loyal to them. We will find the right house at the right price one they can call home 

Joan Cox There is no such thing as perfect. The perfect house has a perfect feeling. It has the feeling of HOME 

Lisa Von Domek  There came a time they thought their email was off line as they were not receiving any listings. I explained there were just not any properties coming on the market.This was true for several months. Even now they are few and far between in this area. 

Thank you for your professional opinions

I LOVE this story!

I don't think any buyer should ever settle if they don't have to.

It took us a year to find our current home. My husband would have put an offer on most every one we looked at, but I kept holding out for the right one. So glad we waited!

Congrats to your buyers!

Sharon Tara  We are going back to measure next week. Last night I had a nightmare that the sellers built a religious shrine in the bedroom. My buyers went in without me and it was written in the agreement of sale. Thankfully I woke up in a cold sweat.   and all is well 

Posted by Hannah Williams, Expertise NE Philadelphia & Bucks 215-953-8818 (Re/Max Eastern inc.) 22 days ago

Hi Hannah:

Glad to hear it all worked out and your clients listened to you! The right property always seems to come along!
