This podcast is all about helping first-time home buyers, so David Sidoni decided to talk to a real first-time home buyer who found their unicorn home through David’s unicorn team!

  • A look at some real home-buying numbers

[02:20] Sally’s Real Estate Team Comes in Clutch

Buying a home can be scary, but Sally got in touch with a great real estate agent and lender. As David has said many times before, finding experienced real estate agents and lenders is key to getting into the best home-buying situations. In Sally’s case, they were very supportive and knew that she and her husband could do it, even though it seemed challenging at the time! Consistent follow-ups, emails, and messages from the team kept them in the loop and feeling confident about their choice.

[14:07] The Numbers Had To Make Sense… And They Did!

Sally came in with some student debt, one steady income, and $5,000 for down payment. Her team helped her crunch the numbers and run all the possible scenarios, as well as throwing in some creative ways to help make the purchase even smoother.

I thought buying homes was just for rich people, but, boy, was I so wrong.
