Many, many details and negotiations have passed since the home-inspection of my first-time buyers.  Luckily, we tackled a tree falling into the roof (when the previous owner had it), bowing rafters, termites, HVAC problems, and an entire electrical panel that needed to be replaced.  Once taken care of, my buyers were finally comfortable and ready to move forth to their big day of closing! This morning, I met Ben and Jerry at the home to do the final walk through.  I arrived just a few minutes prior and will never forget the look on Ben's face (or a flash of him, I might say) running across the yard in his best "Oh-What-A-Feelin' Toyota" impressionas I looked over my shoulder as I was unlocking the door. The fan on the patio still wasn't working but all other major repairs were taken care of and they were happy and excited to finally call this their "home".
A few minutes later, we met at Stewart Title in Allen, which, ironically, is located in the same building as my office (Halo Group Realty).  I could see the excitement growing on Ben's face with each hand-cramp of signing the FHA docs.  Jerry, as always, had his poker-face on, that I as always, could not tell was fear, excitement or worry of the "unknown".  They signed the docs, got a copy and proceeded out the door ready to embark on the next phase of their life.  :)What a ride this transaction was...but in a strange way, I'm going to miss it.  It will definitely go down as one of my most memorable ones.  I actually felt a little sad.  I'm dropping a welcome home gift off this weekend to see how they are doing....and don't forget to check back with us at the end of June as I follow up to see what they think about their new home after having time to get settled. 

I hope you enjoyed the story of Ben and Jerry's experience of finding and buying their first home, and that it hopefully shed some light on the subject if you are thinking of embarking upon your own journey of buying your first home.  Should you have questions regarding buying or selling a home in North Texas, I would love to hear from you!  Whether it's $100k or 10M, let's find your dream-home!*
