Sharing the Orange County First Time Buyer Experience

First Time Buyer Brett Olson

Recently, I bought a home in Orange County – my first. Like most first-timers, I really didn’t know what to expect. But it wasn’t long before my uncertainties began to vanish. That’s because I had a super Realtor there with me every step of the way. Angie Weeks really knew the ins and outs of the Orange County Real Estate marketplace. And she was there all the time with lots of advice and support. I always felt I had somebody on my side. Angie definitely went above and beyond what I had ever expected. I have a lot to be thankful for.

The first thing I would tell any first-time buyer is this – make sure you have plenty of patience. That’s the key. Eventually you’ll find a good deal. Believe me, they’re out there. Just don’t be in a rush. You’ll get the house you want.

The other thing that’s really important is to go into the market with an open mind. That’s the best way to figure out exactly what you want. Sure, it’s pretty typical to be unsure when you first enter the marketplace. But once you embark on your house hunt, you’ll gradually become familiar with all the possibilities. Suddenly, things you never thought of prior to the search might become major issues. On the other hand, things you considered a big deal may not seem so important after you’ve looked around a while. It’s all a question of taking the time to figure out what you want.
