Buying a house is SO exciting but truth be told, the road to home can have some bumps along the way. My goal is to prepare future home buyers for

what to expect before they’re knee deep in the middle of it! Here are 5 stages to prepare yourself for before you start house hunting!

STAGE 1: CONFUSION

• I’d have to say this is the very first stage because you’re buying your first house for crying out loud. Of course you’re confused about where to start.

• That’s why I create these videos to help guide you and ALSO why I always always have a new home buyer discovery meeting before starting

to look at houses.

• I spend that time with you not only digging into what you truly want in a house but I also educate you on the different steps of the process, how it

all works and what you should be prepared for! So think of today’s video as a sneak peek!

STAGE 2: EXCITEMENT

• After the consultation we set up your official home search and start looking at houses!

• At this point you’re excited because it’s really happening! You’ve officially begun your journey to homeownership!

• You get excited when a new listing that fits your criteria pops up! When we schedule private tours to see your top favorites and you get to start

looking! It’s so much fun!

• You’re also going to experience excitement when you find THE ONE and get an accepted offer! You’ll be in celebration mode that day!

 

STAGE 3: DOUBT

• There will likely be some point in the process where you experience doubt. Whether you’re not finding a house you love enough to write

an offer or you wrote an offer that wasn’t accepted. You might start to feel discouraged. But I promise, you won’t be a renter forever.

Sometimes it just takes a bit longer depending on the market, what’s available and how much competition there is.

• This is where we can regroup! We can talk about different strategies to help your next offer stand out in a competitive scenario. Or we

can look at your search criteria and see if you want to make any changes.

• Sometimes you just need a little extra patience depending on the situation. When you get to this stage, I’ll be sure to help walk you

through it!

STAGE 4: ANXIETY

• You submitted your first offer and you’re anxiously waiting to hear back from the sellers. I just want to tell you right now that there’s a

pretty good chance that you’re going to feel a little bit anxious while you wait.

• I always walk my buyers through the entire offer to purchase so they know their options and from there we determine how to fill it out

based on a variety of factors. So while you’re waiting, you can be reassured that you made your best offer based on the circumstances and what is comfortable for you! That means, if it doesn’t get accepted, it probably wasn’t the right home for you!

STAGE 5: FRUSTRATION

• I PROMISE I’m not trying to scare you off! I just want you to be prepared so there are no surprises! So in all honesty, there can be

some moments of frustration as you go through the home buying process.

• There will be times we have to negotiate with the sellers on price, on home inspection repairs, and other contingencies within our offer. If

the sellers don’t agree to your requests or they are refusing to negotiate at all. Don’t worry, when we reach this stage, I will help walk you through it and calm your frustrations. We can talk about your options and go from there. It will all work out in the end so just try to remain calm during any frustrating times and know that it will all work out.

There you have it! The 5 stages to prepare for during the home buying process. But the BEST news is, you get to go back to STAGE 2 which is EXCITEMENT! Once you’re at the closing table and you get the keys to your new house, all of the other stages will be so worth it! Soon you’ll be sipping

🍾champagne 🥂and eating takeout pizza on the living room floor while blasting your favorite Spotify playlist and talking about paint colors!

Roswell’s Perfect Spot Top Producing Real Estate Agent & Lacrosse Mama IT'S THE PERFECT SPOT Hi, I’m Tania (pronounced Tan - like a SUN-TANya, not TONya). Not to digress, but I get this question all the time. My husband Doug & I have lived here in Roswell since 2002 and we have 1 son and 3 girls. All of them play lacrosse, so when I’m not out showing and selling houses, doing walk throughs, attending closing celebrations, taking continuing education classes, attending seminars, watching HGTV or jogging with my dogs, you’ll find me on the side lines of a lacrosse field cheering for my kids and their teams! I’ve been in Real Estate right here in Roswell since 2007. Currently, I average about 95%+ of my business comes from referral, so it’s critical that I connect with my clients from the beginning and spend some time discussing what their goals are, so we can create a plan that makes sense for them. I’ve been able to sell homes for more money and in less time than the average agent in Atlanta. That means your house is on the market for less time, so you can move on to your next phase of life... and have more money too! Being in the top 10% of all real estate agents in Atlanta, means I’m doing more business so I deal with the majority of bumps that can come up during a transaction so that we are better prepared how to handle anything that comes our way. This is the biggest investment for most of us, and I want this to be a great experience for you too! I’m not a transactional real estate agent, I’m a FULL - SERVICE RELATIONAL REALTOR®. I am here to help you and your family (including your family pets! ) through the entire process, well before it’s time to put your house on the market to sell or time to buy a new house, and well after we’ve close on your new perfect spot to call home. Sometimes we need to come up with a plan to save up for that dream house for a year or two or even work with my lenders to craft a credit repair or improvement plan so you qualify for a better loan option and rate. Often times, my buyers have to sell first, but they don’t want to put their house on the market before they find the perfect spot to call home and buy. So we have a vicious cycle of not enough homes (or the right homes) on the market when you need to buy. Don’t worry, this is where my networking skills really help you out. I keep a secret list of homes not on the market. And many times, you can tell me a specific neighborhood you want to live in, and I can FIND someone who might consider selling to you. I go the extra mile to make sure we find or sell your perfect spot to call home. I’m your life time real estate advisor! Many referred to me as the high energy Roswell Real Estate Expert. It's where I live, work and play!
