Meet the Newlyweds!

As a general rule, I never let any prospective buyer into a house we're working on, until we have an Open House.  So when Erika knocked on the door, 5 minutes before the Open House started, she was the very first buyer to see it.

She explained that she and her husband had recently gotten married and had just started looking for a house.   This was her first Open House.  "We're not in a hurry", she said.  An hour later, she was still wandering around, trying to figure out where their furniture was going to go and was calling her husband to come look.

Fast forward several weeks and these newlyweds are the proud owners of our latest house project.  They've only been married a short while, but after they finished signing all the paperwork, they said "This is bigger than getting married!"  LOL.  Can you remember when you bought your first house and got a mortgage?  It's a daunting process!

We are so thrilled for them and know they'll love the Willard Beach neighborhood.  We wish them many years of happiness in their new home!

  1. Oh Laurel they are SOOO cute!! I so well remember our first house - in fact, I was so naive I never thought we would ever have a house when it was explained that you put a certain amount of money down (down payment) and then every month for 30 years you paid money to the bank. When I heard the staggering amount of money the BANK got I burst in to tears and thought we'd never have a house. Fast forward 40 years and that first became the first of 3, the last one custom built. Additionally, we've been fortunate enough to be able to have a second home in FL. I don't say this to brag. Amazing what life has in store.....
    Much love and luck to this young couple as they begin their life journey together.

    1. Thanks so much for sharing Denise. I think we're all amazed when we learn how much the bank makes on a mortgage.....of course a lot less these days, now that interest rates have dropped. Our first mortgage was at 13 percent!!! Hard to believe now!

      Best, Laurel
