From this day forward..

By Living Room Realty, June 13, 2019

I met with Mario and Lindsey back in January to go over the home buying process. They were first time home buyers that didn’t realize they could buy a home. To their surprise they were pre-qualified that week. Initially they intended to buy the home they were renting at that time, however the sellers had a change of heart and we were back to square one.

After taking some time to re-evaluate what they wanted, we found the perfect home in Battleground, WA. It only took moments after stepping into the front door that they knew this was the one. To get this home for lower than asking, we knew we had to win over the hearts of the sellers. Mario and Lindsey wrote a compelling letter that included their profession as school teachers. We later found out that the seller was also a teacher, which had an impact on our offer. The offer was accepted and we were moving forward!

The inspection brought up hurdles to overcome, but Mario and Lindsey handled this with ease. After the professional opinions of 5 contractors and extensive negotiating, we ended up with a brand new electrical panel and repaired plumbing. Happy with the result we were cruising ahead for a smooth closing.

Upon closing Lindsey brought a sign that she had saved from the first day they moved into their rental that read “ From this day forward, you’ll always have a home with me”, she crossed out “have” and filled in “own”. A special moment to say the least. Most importantly I received the update that their fur-baby Cal is adjusting very well to their massive backyard.

Congratulations to this incredible couple on their first home!
