Gilbert resident Nadia Saco bought the home of her dreams this August. But landing it, she said, was a “nightmare” in the current real estate market.
Saco, 32, and her husband, who spent a year and a half looking for a larger home for their growing family, were outbid on two houses before finally winning a bidding war for the home they’re in now.
“We had to pay all their closing costs. We wrote a personalized letter with a photo of our family. And we still barely got it. We offered, I think, $10,000 over asking price,” Saco said.
