How long does it take to find the perfect home?

We work with many buyers and each one is different with their timing.

We started working with Christina a year ago. She is a 24 year old, first time home-buyer and looking for a home  in South Portland, Portland or Westbrook and her budget was under $180,000. We looked at 30 homes over 12 months. During that time, we made offers on 4 homes that she loved but they were all multiple offer situations and she was not the winning bidder.  We had a fifth property  under contract but the deal fell through after the inspections revealed issues the seller was not willing to repair or compensate her for.  Then last month we found the PERFECT home and she is preparing for closing  this month. Of all the homes we looked at, it’s the best value and was  worth the wait! She is so happy!

Last month I met with Jan and Michael. They wanted to relocate from NH to be closer to their family. We set their search up for Portland, Westbrook, Scarborough, Cape Elizabeth and South Portland under $350,000.  After studying listings online for 3 weeks, Jan made the trip to Maine to see 8 homes. Last Friday we toured 6 of them and on Saturday Michael joined her to look at the last 2.  They fell in love with one of the homes in Scarborough and made an offer on it that afternoon. By 7:30 pm Saturday they were under contract on their new Maine home!
