We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: there’s no place like (a new) home. Now more than ever, buyers are taking a good look at their current living situation and searching for a home, whether used or new, that better suits their wants and needs. In fact, a few of our very own Group Two team members have recently moved!
We asked them a few questions about their motivation to move, their unique process, and anything else they want to share about the experience of buying and moving into a home right now. Today we are featuring Katie, one of our account managers. Take a look!
What was your reason for moving?
We wanted to stop renting!
What wasn’t working for you in your current home?
We needed more room! We only had one bedroom, and we wanted a bedroom for guests. We also didn’t have a home office (little did we know, this would be SUPER important in a few months… we moved in February)!
What were the top three must-haves in your new home?
Private outdoor/green space, larger kitchen/more storage, a second bedroom.
What are your favorite things about your new home?
All the natural sunlight! And my front yard and patio. All very important now that we spend so much time at home.
What came up during the process that you didn’t expect?
This is hard, I honestly had NO CLUE what to expect. Maybe how much money goes toward closing costs, title, etc. and NOT toward the down payment. I was not expecting that when planning.
What tool or feature do you wish you had during your home search?
