Meet James and Melissa Nilson.

They just recently celebrated their one-year wedding anniversary and now they are celebrating the purchase of their first home in Naples!

James and Melissa were referred to me by past clients (a BIG thank you to the Nolton family!). In January, we met to discuss what they were searching for … a single-family home with a pool, or at least room for a pool, for preferably well under $300,000. Though we knew it might be a difficult find, we approached the search with a positive, can-do attitude.

Time was on James and Melissa’s side because they came to me in January even though their lease did not end till sometime in the Fall. We also talked about finding “the one” well before their ideal timeline, and after a talk with their landlord, they discovered that breaking their lease early was an option.

Most importantly, James and Melissa had already met with a mortgage lender and were pre-approved for an FHA loan.

Given their price point, we talked about the homes they were going to see having some age to Naples First Time Homebuyersthem and probably needing some work, which they were not opposed to as long as it wasn’t a complete rehab.

After making one offer on a house that had promise, only for negotiations to quickly come to a halt, we found a great three-bedroom, two-bath home in Naples that gave them tons of living space, a fantastic pool and spa, and an oversized two-car garage. With a little negotiation and an amenable seller who made all of the necessary repairs prior to closing, the Nilsons are now settling into their first home three months after our first meeting.

Congratulations James and Melissa! Many happy years to you in your Naples home.
