Checking Out Homes For Sale In Anniston
A friend of mine recently moved to Anniston because she wanted a fresh start with her life. She figured Anniston would be a good place to start over plus we would get to hang out more. The time she was moving, I was out of town for a conference and so I was not able to help her look for a place to move into.
So, she ended up looking for homes for sale in Anniston by her own. I told her I could have a friend from church help her out, but she insisted that she wants to do the home searching on her own.
Finally, she got a house through a real estate broker who handles the selling of properties in a subdivision that is just about a 35 minute drive from where I live. She ended up buying a house that was also near my place and was just inside her budget.
The broker was very helpful in finding the place that was just right for her. It really helps to have real estate brokers do the tedious tasks of looking for the house that fits your request. When my friend was satisfied of the house because of the location and the price, she immediately took the chance to buy it.
However, after a few weeks inside the house, while her papers for ownership were still processed by the broker, she noticed a lot of problems in the house. There were minor damages that she know she could handle on her own, but then major damages were also present and those problems, she did not know what to do. I was not there that time too so I was not able to help her about it.
After finding out some problems with the house, she called for her broker to have the problems fixed since up until their transactions are done, all repairs should be managed by the real estate broker. At first she began to get scared because maybe the broker took off or won’t fix the damaged areas as agreed upon. Good thing she moved to Anniston, where almost all people are within reach and are all very friendly, kind and honest.
When she was able to contact her broker, the very next day, he came with a home inspection team. They handled the assessment and the fixing of the damaged areas. On top of that, the broker said that I need not worry about the payment because he will handle it, since it was what we agreed upon and it is also stated in our contract.
I went to visit her the other day after church choir practice and she was more than happy to show me around her new home. Since it has been a long time that we have spent time together, we talked about a lot of things, including which nearby places she can visit and go sightseeing so that she can be more familiar with the place and easily adapt. There are places like the Anniston Museum and the Berman Museum that she can look into so that she can be more familiar with the history of the place. I also invited her to visit our church sometimes. When we younger, she also sang at the church choir with me. Maybe if she finds the interest again, she can also join our church choir. She was more than happy to visit, and she looks forward to a good life here in Anniston.
