First Time Home Buyers: Your Path to Affordable Homeownership!

Are you a first-time home buyer who dreams of owning a home?

Great news! I am here to make that dream a reality to help you get into a home for as little money out of your pocket as possible! I believe there is an overwhelming misconception that one must have tens of thousands of dollars in order for one to become a homeowner. As someone who feels strongly about the importance of homeownership, I have made it a goal of mine to combat this belief and guide firsttime home buyers through this process and the resources that are available to them, including down payment and closing cost assistance. If you are interested in purchasing your first home, I would love the opportunity to guide you through the process from understanding your financing options, and available grant programs and helping you find the perfect home for your budget and lifestyle!

An Aspiring First Time Home Buyer Story

Discover how Sara helped Carlie and Elijah purchase their first home and what they recommend for others considering homeownership.

What prompted you to begin your search as a first-time home buyer?

We were prompted to begin our search as a first-time home buyer as a way to take our first step toward building a strong financial future! In purchasing a home, we were hoping to stop paying someone else’s mortgage and invest that money back into ourselves and our family. Of course, in purchasing our home, we had a wish list of items including more space, a backyard for our two German Shepherds, and close proximity to our new jobs! 

What was on your must-have list for a new home?
The biggest must-have on our list for a new home was a big backyard for our two German Shepherds to run and play while also allowing us the space and privacy to entertain friends and family when they came to town!
What was it about your new home that made it the one?

The location was a major factor for us when deciding that our current home was the one! The home is located within close proximity to my boyfriend’s work and the headquarters for my job, while also offering quick access to the highway to get to Wilmington. Our home is also nestled in a quaint, suburban neighborhood while also being only minutes to major shopping, food and entertainment options!  

What was the most helpful thing Sara did for you as a first-time home buyer?

Sara made the home buying process seamless and enjoyable from the beginning to the end! She truly believes that knowledge is power and she supported and guided both my boyfriend, Elijah, and I through the entire process. From explaining our first steps in the process to connecting us with a lender who helped us qualify for first-time home buyer assistance programs to negotiating the entire transaction on our behalf, Sara truly taught us so much about the real estate industry and homeownership during the several months that we worked with her. Sara cares about her clients with her entire heart and that is invaluable when you are going through such a big and stressful process like purchasing a home! 

What advice do you have for others thinking about buying a home for the first time?
The biggest piece of advice that I have for others who are thinking about buying a home for the first time is to take that first step! For so many years, I believed that homeownership was something that I was not capable of achieving, let alone at my age, as a new college graduate. As someone who has now gone through this process from start to finish, I have learned that homeownership is possible for me and for so many other people out there! The key is making sure that you align yourself with the right resources, such as Sara, as a realtor and lender, who understand your financial situation and goals and will help advocate for you to ensure you are in the best position possible for this new chapter in your life!

Do not let your belief that homeownership is unattainable hold you back from beginning the process!
