Ron Carpenito of Keller Williams Realty Helps in the Purchase of a Methuen Real Estate Listing

Ron Carpenito of Keller Williams Realty is thrilled to have helped another real estate client purchase their first home in Methuen.

Methuen, MA, August 28, 2014 --( Ron Carpenito is thrilled to have helped Kyle, a first time home buyer from New York purchase a condo in Methuen, MA. Kyle was referred to Ron by past clients Bill and Erica of North Andover. He was renting an apartment and wanted a permanent residence with easy highway access for his commute to work.

Kyle is not from the area and had certain time requirements for moving into his new home, so it was very important to work with a full time agent who has knowledge of the area and availability to show him properties as needed. "Kyle is not from the area, so working with someone who knows the geography of the area and the parts of town that are more suited to his lifestyle was important to him," said Ron. Ron set up specific times during the week that was "their time" so Kyle could rely on those times to view homes as well as other times when homes popped up that Kyle wanted to see right away.

Kyle also had specific requirements for sellers to assist with closing costs which made purchasing a home challenging. Because of this unique situation with closing costs and multiple bid situations they placed multiple offers on multiple properties.

During the time of contract to closing on this Methuen condo, a major title issue was uncovered on the sellers property. This problem was not something that could easily be resolved by the seller. Kyle had already given up his lease on his apartment, so he didn't have a place to live while the problem was dealt with. Ron's real estate team of attorneys and lenders, who are skilled at what they do, were able to get Kyle into the condo under what's called a "Use and Occupancy". Thanks to Ron's team, Kyle was able to live in the condo while the problem was being sorted out. "Using our team of attorneys and lenders who worked together seamlessly and have the full time experience of doing this on a regular basis helped Kyle purchase this home and get the problem resolved," said Ron.
