Meet the newest homeowners, Emma & Taylor!

By Living Room Realty, June 20, 2020

Emma & Taylor deserve all the props for tackling homeownership in a competitive as ever market AND during a pandemic. These two hustled hard to make their dreams a reality and finally it all proved itself to be worth it.

They were looking for something on the west side and needed 3 beds, 2 baths, and something that would allow our chef Emma to cook up a storm while Taylor had big visions of backyard hangs. He especially loved the idea of some privacy and a deck to entertain their friends and family.

When we started shopping they had a max budget of $425k. While they were stuck at home during quarantine they managed to cut their living expenses and save a ton of money- bumping their purchase price up significantly and eliminating the need for support on the closing costs, which we all know tend to add up quickly.

We wrote handfuls of offers and I kept reminding them that soon, they would see that these other homes didn’t work out for a good reason. Then we stumbled upon their new home in Beaverton and it all made sense. The layout was exactly what they had hoped for, they ended up super close to Taylor’s family, and they got a big ol’ back yard with room for it all. Not only that, but it needed VERY few VERY minimal repairs. After all of their hustling to make it happen, they were able to wrap their purchase and it was a breeze. We shaved two and a half weeks of the original closing date thanks to their kick as lender at OnPoint, too. Jessica Chestnut handled the mortgage like a champ!

Wishing Emma, Taylor, and their fur babies a life full of happiness and all of the special memories in their abode. I’m so lucky to have gained some great friends out of the deal too. That is something that comes with no price tag.

Congrats to you, E&T!
