I love first time homebuyers!

I love first time homebuyers

There is something so exciting about being a first time homebuyer.  Even 2nd time if it is your first detached house. I remember the feeling so well.  The excitement of possibilities of the things you can do with your house, the determination of making it happen (and boy it can be tough), the dreams of painting your own walls and planting your own trees and having your very own piece of earth that belongs to you.

I held open a house yesterday that is the perfect home for a first time buyer, after all, it was my first home. I met a couple who literally had stars in their eyes about this house, and I was so excited for them.   The energy they were sending off was palpable, you could tell the guy wanted to write an offer and move in tomorrow.   They might buy it or they might calm down and decide to wait.  Either way, it’s a great feeling when you find that first house that really gets you excited.    And when you go through and buy it, it’s even better.

It can sometimes take months of searching through hundreds of houses, and sometimes it takes only one or two.

This is a picture of me in this house in Arlington, Virginia, our first house circa 2001, happily scrubbing away at my worn out, hideous old kitchen that we were in the process of remodeling.   Why do I look so bug-eyed and delirious? The first time homeowner high. We remodeled that ugly kitchen, and made it beautiful, but even before we did that, I loved it, because it was ours.
