A heart warming tale of two first-time home buyers: Just Sold!
Another successful full-time, first-time home buyer now calls beautiful Truckee, CA home — permanently.
My buyers have lived in the Truckee/Tahoe area for the last 18 years; yes, you read that right, 18 years. And for those 18 years, this (amazing) couple has been dealing with the troubling rental market. In fact, last year, their rental situation came to a head— they were unable to secure a rental in the Truckee/Tahoe area and were forced to rent a home in Northwest Reno.
When these buyers reached out to me, it was initially about a rental, as they never thought they would be able to qualify for a home on their own. I encouraged them to get in touch with Katie Rice’s team over at Guild Mortgage, to at least explore their options before writing home ownership off completely.
Much to their surprise, my rockstar lenders were able to qualify them for a mortgage. And yesterday, we closed on an amazing property in Tahoe Donner.
Without their trust, positive attitude, and some (a lot) hope, we were able to get this done. And what a journey it’s been.
Assisting locals achieve their dream of home ownership is a feeling I have a hard time explaining; it fills my heart to the brim. This is not about a paycheck for me, it’s about making a difference in people’s lives that will stay with them for a lifetime.
The honor is truly mine.
Congratulations to my buyers!
