We have some sweet condos here in San Mateo, CA, affordable for a first-time buyer!
Last week I presented a purchase offer from a buyer hoping to buy his very first home. Do you remember how exciting this can be, especially when he never thought he could buy property in a high-cost area like San Mateo County. On a teacher's salary, that can be a real challenge. We were one of two very similar offers, but the seller loved the idea of selling to a teacher who plans to live here for years to come, so my buyer's contract was selected.
This past week has been busy for my buyer, reading pages and pages of documents, including interminable HOA docs -- so very important. Today, Saturday, my favorite home inspector met us at the property.
Now all we need to do is wait for the appraisal, which should be in on Monday or Tuesday. This video shows one of the reasons my buyer is so happy here, the peaceful surroundings are just what a high school teacher can use after a hectic day!
