Congratulations to Jack and Joan! They just closed on their new Dree’s home in the Stone Creek subdivision in North Rockwall. For Joan and Jack it has been a journey that many buyers and sellers face. They wanted to build a new home, but had to sell their existing home first. The selling and buying process ends today, but it is just the beginning of their new life in their new home!
Jack and Joan first called me in September 2011. They wanted to build a new home, but needed to sell their home first. I walked them through the process and gave them an idea of what they could expect from the sell of their existing home.
Like most buyers, Jack and Joan were sceptical about entering into a contract for a new home when their existing home had not yet sold. That is one of the many reasons I referred them to Drees. Drees has an excellent contingency program that allows buyers to contract a new home with the understanding that their existing home must sell first. While they did have to put up a down-payment, if for some reason their home did not sell, they would have gotten 100% of that down payment back; no questions asked!
In Jack and Joan’s case, things could not have gone smoother. After only 35 days on the market, we received an acceptable offer on Jack and Joan’s home and they closed very soon after. In fact, one of the biggest obstacles they had to face was where to live until their new home was finished being built. While it was a bit of a headache to have to move twice, Jack and Joan agreed that their home selling so quickly was actually a good problem to have!
They decided to move their furniture into a POD and keep out only the essentials they would need until their new home was built. PODS are a great option when you need an interim storage unit. It was delivered at their existing home, filled up with their furniture and then stored until tomorrow, when it will be delivered to their new home.
Jack and Joan enjoyed going to the design center and picking out the brick, interior paint colors, tile, and wood stain for their new home. They did such a wonderful job on selections; the house turned out just beautiful!
If you are thinking about selling your home and want to buy or build a new one, but don’t know where to start; please give me a call! I will walk you through the process and be there for you as your advocate the entire time. There are a lot of issues to consider and timing can be complicated, but it can be done. Jack and Joan are perfect examples!
Thank you again to Jack and Joan! I feel truly blessed to have worked with you and wish you both Health and Happiness as you start this new chapter in your life. God Bless You Both!
