On the fence about purchasing a home? We've been in your shoes!
Like so many of you, our family PCS'ed to Hampton Roads & didn't know the area well. At the time, we were living on a SrA's salary w/ two kids (one school-aged), two pets and no real estate experience. We had resided in base housing at our two previous bases and had every intention of taking the first quarters offered to us. But after seeing what was available without a long wait, it was obvious that just wasn't an option. Frantically, we looked for rentals on the economy. Between the limited properties in good condition that permitted a large dog, additional pet fees and expensive monthly rent amounts, what were we to do? So, we decided to buy our first home.
Without a doubt, purchasing a townhouse of our own was one of the best decisions we ever made! Not only were we able to select a home that suited our needs but the neighborhood w/ amenities and schools that we desired! We painted, decorated & landscaped without having to ask permission. Better yet, we knew we had invested in our future and weren't just paying someone else's mortgage. The stability of a consistant, fixed rate mortgage rather than yearly rental rate increases was comforting. Being able to deduct our mortgage interest at tax time was an added bonus!
Granted, a first home will probably not be your dream home. However, owning a home is a proud and memorable milestone! We'd be honored to help you make this big step!
Read on to see how we've helped other 1st time buyers like yourselves!
The Melton Team has been a life saver for our family! They helped us purchase our first home. When it came time to PCS, they helped us list & sell as well! They made sure we were abreast of every step taken throughout the entire process. That set the foundation of a trusting relationship. They are like family, they always stayed in touch and made sure we were happy. Their dedication, tenacity, and compassion has not gone un-noticed or unappreciated. Any one we know of that is moving in the Virginia area, we always give them "The Melton Team's" card because we know they will be taken care of. We only wish everyone could have a "Melton Team.
