First Time Buyers Get Home at 50% Discount

by Rodney Forbes on April 14, 2009

First time home buyers Katherine and Haas weren’t sure if they could qualify for their first home. They certainly weren’t ready to get an almost new home for 50% of what it sold for 3 years ago.

The 4 bedroom 3 bath bank owned property in Port St. Lucie sold in 2006 for $292,000. Katherine and Haas were able to get the home under contract for $140,000. The seller also paid most of the closing costs for the home.

Katherine credits her realtor, Rodney Forbes with Forbes Realty of South Florida, for finding and negotiating the purchase for her. Rodney really enjoys helping first time home buyers.

A referral from another successful first time home buyer with Rodney, Katherine has found a realtor for life and will be referring Rodney to her friends and family as well.
