My husband and I had been renting an apartment for awhile. The rent was cheap because a good friend of ours was the landlord. The apartment was nice, but we had always wanted to own our own home. While we lived there, we started saving up to buy a home one day. The rent was cheap enough that we were able to save a good bit of money up in a short amount of time. We weren’t really looking to buy a home just yet, but were keeping up with the listings that were on the market in Cordova, Tennessee in case something caught our eye. We wanted to save a little more up for a home, but if there was something we really wanted, we figured we could go for it.
I was looking around on real estate websites one day to see what new listings there were in Cordova, Tennessee. I also wanted to check the prices out on them. I found a few new homes that were for sale and the prices seemed to be really good. These homes were almost new and in really nice locations. I showed them to my husband to see what he would say and if he would be interested in looking at them. He told me he wanted to look at one of them and to contact the real estate agent it was listed with. This home was everything we ever wanted and had property with it too.
I called the real estate agent to let them know we wanted to look at this home. We were able to look at it the next day. We fell in love with it as soon as we saw it in person and we decided that we wanted to try to buy it after talking about it. Even though we didn’t have all the money we wanted to have saved, we wanted to see if we could still get a loan with it. We let the real estate agent know we were interested and they said they would start the paperwork. We let them know we had a bank in mind and contacted them. We were able to get the loan for the home and closed on it within 30 days.
We love our new home in Cordova, Tennessee and really like the location of it. The home is perfect in many ways and we couldn’t have made a better choice.
