For Donald and Amy, the choice came down to location, location, location. After endless discussions and careful thought, the home that really fits for them is the existing home on the cul-de-sac that first called their name when they drove by it two weeks ago!
Although a brand new home was very enticing and could be built for nearly the existing home price, they wanted the established neighborhood in the same school district they have their children in now. They’ve made their decision.
In this business, I wear many hats. This time I donned my “horse and buggy” hat and told them the worst case scenario when the cart is before the horse in a real estate transaction. I’m known for ‘making things happen’ and though it’s nice to make a sale, it’s far better to have a happy client. Having gotten to know the Denards, they made it clear to me that owning two homes may not be in the best interest for this family of five. After discussing ALL the possibilities, for now they feel that it’s better to wait until at least an offer comes in on the home they own, giving them better options for negotiations on the one they want.
Since the lease they’re in is flexible, the only thing left to do is get their current home under contract and we’ll start the ball rolling! Anybody need a home in Martinez, Georgia:
