Searching for and buying your first home is a dilemma for most home buyers

Searching for and buying your first home is exciting. You are embarking on your first major activity as an adult – getting a mortgage!

Searching is fun, open for inspections, travelling around town, exploring opportunities and seeing if you can achieve your dream home.

Searching becomes disheartening. What you envisage isn’t easy to find. Real estate agents are friendly but each house isn’t right or you can’t afford it or it sells beyond your budget. Searching for and buying your first home seems to be moving out of your reach. 

Jargon & the First Home Buyer

How do you buy your first home? How do you make an offer? What does an agent mean when they say ……? Agents use language that you don’t understand. What is a Section 32 and why do you need it before you make an offer? You have pre approval and you are worried that it will expire before you buy your first home.

First home buying becomes not fun. It becomes an endless weekend challenge. Your life is on hold. Email alerts hit your inbox and you cynically open the email and frustratedly wonder if this might be ‘the one’ and what the agent really means price wise.

The struggle is real. You have finally found your dream home. The agent seems approachable. You decide that you want to make an offer and contact the agent. Leave a message. Email the agent. Leave another message. What is going on? Have you missed out on the property? Why aren’t the agents getting back to you?

Calling in the Expert – Ms. Property Melbourne

A family friend suggests that you call Carol at Ms. Property Melbourne. They have known her for a long time and believe that she will give you some guidance.

So relieved after a 30 minute chat with Carol. Finally, someone is listening and giving you some advice you can work with and understand. Rather than getting directly involved in the agents and your conversations, Carol suggests that instead of responding immediately to the agents that you contact her and together you can work on your response. She explains what the agents mean when they say something – or what they really mean. You are making choices, your decisions are guided but still your own, you are the one doing this, you are the one buying your first home!

Negotiations are proceeding. Carol gives you guidance on questions to ask and conditions that you can use. Her support makes it all so much less stressful. Your questions are never silly. You are treated with respect. It’s confidential. There is light at the end of the tunnel.

Success! Home bought. Dream realised and Carol was there all the way through to Settlement.
