Renting No Longer Makes Sense In Lorton, Virginia
Patty Blackwelder, REALTOR-Buyer Specialist (Twins Selling Real Estate)
Why Are you still Renting?Maybe you have no idea you qualify for a home, Or maybe the down payment is stopping you from moving forward. You may not even know you have options! If you are paying $2500.00 + rent a month you are in a position to buy you just do not know it.Have you ever wondered how co-workers and friends own a home and you seem to be living paycheck to paycheck or at least it feels that wasy? I have news for you you are already paying a mortgage just not yours! You ar enot receiving the tax benifit your landloard is and he/She Thanks You by rasing your rate each year!Over the the past several months I have been working with more and more buyers who have been renting for years and years! They have been waiting for the right time to buy and as the rents continue to go up they make the choice to become home owners. My last three sales have been with buyers spending on average $2500.00 a month to rent an apartment! Each one had less space than they desired and were so tired of spending that much money monthly with nothing to show for it! Living in 1100+ sq feet or less gets old and rising rents really stinks!                                       I did some checking on the REALTORS MLS and found right here in Lorton, Virgina by my officewe only have 5 available single fmaily homes        for rent now. You will notice on the graph toright that the Avg Price of a 4 bedroom home avialable right now is $3210.0 and has only been on the market 6 days.Now Look at the Rented section and you will see that the average Rented Home in th elast 90 days rented for $3111.00 for a 4 bedroom home! That suggest rental rates are increasing once again! OUGH!!!So what are your options?Continue to Rent and Pay the higher prices?  My three most recent sales have been people just like you who were searching the internet for Rentals and wondering if there was a better way. They had no idea of their options but they picked up the phone and called me. I am happy to say in less than 30 days each has found that buying was in their best interest and I mapped out a plan to help them acheive their goals of home ownership. All three are under contract for homes priced in the $500,000 or higher price range.They had absoloutly no idea they could not only afford to buy a home much less at this price. Now they realise they could not afford not to! They not only tripled their living space they also now are headed to being proud owners who can put their personal style into decorating and starting to put donw some roots. The idea of not moving again had such appeal to these renters turned buyers.If you are paying $2500.00 or more in rent an have good credit this Blog Post was meant for you. It costs nothing to explore your options. My services are always FREE to you the seller pays my fees.The tax savings of owning can be substancial and add to that the opportuity to build equity and you have something to really think about. Right now Interest Rates are still under 4% but are expected to rise over the next six months. So if you have a lease that will expire within the next six months we need to talk.Don't Beleive me take a look at two of my favorite tools for helping buyers .My favorite is the After TAx Payment Calculatoror for those of you thinking of doing an FHA Loan with 3.5% down http://www.anytimeestimate.com/FHA/fha-mortgage-insurance-calculator.htmWith Interst Rates on the rise you owe it to yourself to at least look in to the option of buying before you reew your lease.If you are Veteran Renting please call me you are missing out on the best benefit you have and I would like to help you maxiimize it. My most recent Veteran just puchrchased a $440,000 hone for 97cents out of their pocket at closing! If you ar egoing to be in the area for 2 years or more you need to consider buying! I have people evey day who wish they had the No Money Down, No Closing Cost option! I just checked in with one of my VA renters I helped hoe last July 2014. He purchased a home for $399,900 at 3.85%. Not only did he save money with the tax benedit but I had the pleasuse this week of showing him that he now has $45,000 euqity becuase he purchased at the perfect time and we has now has a wonderful nest eqq saved in equity!  He was so excited !!Contact Patty Now or call me at 703-8019367 and Let's talk about your specific situation and options.  Feel Free to call or Text me at 703-801-9367 To search homes in the Local area Click Here Feel Free to call or Text me at 703-801-9367 To search homes in the Local area Click Here Visit our website  at  TwinsSellingRealEstate.com Like us on Facebook- We're TwinsSellingRealEstateSubscribe to our local blogs LakeRidgeVARealEstateNews.com or  Local Homebuyer News in Prince WIlliam County Virginia to keep up with market activity, and tips for home buyers and sellers in the Lake Ridge Virginia and surrounding area.Note: This real estate blog is written by me Patty Blackwelder and it is is my opinion and may not reflect the opinion of Exit Realty Associates  8998C Lorton Station Blvd, Lorton Virginia 22079 . I am a full time REALTOR license to do business in Virginia .

Real Estate Tax Rumor Outlasts Mayan Calendar
Hamed Gargasht (Gargasht Team, Keller Williams Realty of Northern Virginia)
Having survived last week’s End of the World, you might think the coast would be clear for a while. But -- at least when it comes to Lorton Station Lorton real estate matters -- some would have you believe we are face-to-face with another extreme dire threat: the Internet buzz about a (gasp!) huge new federal sales tax on all real estate transactions. This one was all over the web even before passage of the federal health care act. It has staying power, and comes in several forms. The one that circulates most often is an email message warning that a 3.8% Medicare surtax that is going to hit “average, middle-class investors” on January 1. Supposedly ALL real estate transactions are subject to the tax “no matter how low their income might be…” If Lorton Station Lorton real estate holders (in other words, most of us) are more than a little skeptical about this supposed mega-tax, you can understand why. The End of the World was also an Internet rumor, but now that it’s clear the Mayans found a whole new calendar behind the last page of their old one (giving us a welcome 5,125-year reprieve), everyone is duly cautious about these dire email warnings. Now, I’m neither a tax attorney nor CPA, so I don’t offer tax advice -- but I can tell you that you will be relieved if you visit any of the fact-checking resources (they survived the End of the World, too!). There you will find that only a tiny percentage of Lorton Station Lorton real estate home sellers would ever fall under the new tax. It touches the extreme opposite of “average, middle class” homeowners. To even qualify for the tax, a couple has to have an income exceeding a quarter of a million dollars a year (before profits from real estate are counted). Even then, when a couple sells their personal residence, the sale has to clear $500,000 of profit before the tax would apply; ($250,000 for individual filers). Clients who might be affected by the new tax don’t need an Internet rumor to tell them to seek expert tax advice! So if you are preparing to sell in 2013, don’t let the Web trouble you: give me a call!

When a Kitchen Shines, Lorton Station Real Estate Agents Beam
Hamed Gargasht (Gargasht Team, Keller Williams Realty of Northern Virginia)
Keeping control of your kitchen is one of the most basic actions you can take to help your real estate agent sell your home. The execution can be simple when it’s approached systematically. Especially during winter, kitchen control can seem an all but unmanageable task. Days are shorter; kids or pets may be cooped up inside; and everyone tracks winter through the kitchen all day long.  To help you keep your kitchen looking great (and your Lorton Station Lorton real estate agent beaming), some simple preparation is needed. That, plus sticking to a simple routine, will turn the impossible into a ‘done deal.’Put appliances and gadgets away as soon as you use them. According to Realtor.com, removing the least frequently used items from kitchen counters is a proven way to make a home more inviting. Include items like can openers and coffee pots.  Flowers and a few cookbooks, though, are welcome to stay.Spot-check nightly: More times than not, you will find items you missed putting away or cleaning during the busy part of your day. It’s easy to miss crumbs on the counter or dirt on the floor when you are trying to get out of the door for work or a meeting.Consider eating pre-prepared meals (or ordering delivery) during periods when you know you will be actively showing the house (like the first two weeks on the market!). This will help with kitchen cleanliness, leave less work for you, and have the significant side effect of making the selling process less crazy-making. Cost a bit extra? Uncle Sam won’t think so, but for yourself, consider it a worthwhile business expense. Every Lorton Station Lorton real estate agent will agree that kitchens are a key selling point these days, so the effort you put into kitchen control is one of the top ways you have of bringing in top dollar for your Lorton Station Lorton home.  Another way — one I’m happy to offer — is to call me! I am here to help you make the most of every step of the selling process. www.ShopforVirginiaHomes.com Hamed Gargasht – Gargasht Team (703) 901-6364 Keller Williams Realty Lorton Station Lorton, VA Homes for Sale
