First Time Buyers

It always amazes me to see First time home buyers trying to purchase an existing home and expect to get all the ammenities they dream and desire in a brand new home.  They are so excited and so giddy and ready to jump into it and look only to get dissapointed because each home they see is missing something on their wish list.  What they need to realize is that as a realtor looking for the buyer, we can get you up to almost 80% of everything you ask for on your wish list at most times.  Sometimes even more.  However, most times buyers don't get everything they want.    They have to be willing to compromise in some way, form, or fashion.  Usually they will end up compromising in some of the greater areas they would like such as location or size.  Why not get everything you want.  I don't believe that anyone should have to suffer buying a home they don't want.

I believe that the best way for a first time home buyer to get everything they want is to buy a fixer upper.  It doesn't necessarily have to be a piece of junk or somthing falling apart.  As long as the bones and structure of  the home are intact and it needs a few minor things, like carpet, changing kitchen cabinets, paint, a little drywall repair here and there, it could be a great contender in the running to meet a new homebuyers needs.  There are so many loans out there today that can be used to purchase a rehab home.  More than one person gets what they want in this situation.  The seller gets a serious buyer to purchase his unwanted home and the buyer gets a home at a very, very, affordable, cheap price, in the location that they desire and probably most likely the size they need for their growing family.  

The buyer also is able to use his/her loan to fix the property in any way they want it to be, to suit their needs and get everything on their wish list into that home.  Talk about a win win.  All you need is a little vision to the eye, a little spit shine to the prize, and a little help to get you there (i.e. realtor) lol, and you're most definitely on your way to getting exactly what you want.
