My Home Buying Experience

We Understand What You Are Going Through

by Saylor Tremaroli on May 5th, 2020

I have been working with House Match for about 8 months now. It all started when my husband and I moved from Fort Lauderdale. We had dreams of owning our own home, but figured it would happen in the next few years or so. Surprise! Exactly 8 months later I’m writing this blog from the living room of my perfect new home! 

What got us really thinking about buying a home was the interest rates and how our new mortgage would compare to the rent we were paying. In the end our mortgage payment is actually a few dollars cheaper than our rent! 

At House Match, I work as a transaction coordinator and help buyers through the home buying process, I know the process inside and out but until now have failed to know the emotions they were enduring and wasn’t able to put myself in their shoes. Not knowing how frustrating it is when the lender asks for the same document for the fifth time or when the home inspector tells you that “you should also have the pipes checked” on top of everything else they find. It is scary and stressful to say the least, ha. But is it worth it? Absolutely! 

Throughout the entire process, even though it is hard to foresee everything that is going to happen, such as the water being turned off on the day of closing and the million questions my very Italian husband had. My team kept the process smooth and understood the stress that I was under. They have been through the process a thousand times. Easy Peasy! 

After 45 days, the closing day arrived and we were finally handed the keys! It was like Christmas, especially when you realize all of your hard work paid off:) We were officially homeowners! 

 

If I can do it, so can you:)
