With a Great Realtor, I Went from Clueless to Confident

I have a confession– until a few years ago, all of my knowledge of the home buying process came from a scene in Gilmore Girls: a triumphant TJ walks into Luke’s diner and declares, “I am in es*ka*row! I’ve got the paperwork to prove it.”

My brain filed away the word and that it was related to home ownership, but I never actually bothered with finding out what the term meant.

Turns out, there are even more big words involved in the home buying process than TJ led me to believe. Thankfully I do not have to know or understand them all if I have someone like the team at Grand Allure Home Group to make sure we’ve got all the details straight.

Buying a home is more than finding a space with a floor plan you like, in a location you love, with oodles of whatever charm you like (historic, modern, and so on). There’s a learning curve to all the ins-and-outs, so you’ll want a Realtor to equip you with the right tools and work in your best interest.
