buying: Home Inspections When Buying A Home - 01/16/14 10:14 PM
Home Inspections An offer to buy a home in #Winchester #Virginia can include a “subject to” clause that is dependent on a home inspection. Not all buyers elect to include this clause because they may be purchasing a new home that is already under warranty, they may know enough about homes and building that the inspection is unnecessary, or they may want to save money.  I alway suggest a predrywall inspection and a final home inspection prior to settlement. 
Home inspections give you a professional assessment of a home’s condition. With such a major purchase as a home, an inspection gives … (0 comments)

buying: Avoid Financial Pitfalls When Buying A Home In Winchester VA - 01/10/14 01:57 AM
Avoid Financial Pitfalls When you buy a house, you enter into a long-term financial obligation. You fill out papers and sign legal documents based on those papers. It's important that you understand your responsibilities so that you won't be a victim, or a participant, in a fraud.

buying: Wells, Water Quality and Residential Water Testing - 01/09/14 04:46 AM
In urban and suburban areas where municipal water supplies are the norm, water quality is consistent from one home to the next. In more rural areas, however, water supplies must be carefully assessed to be sure they meet standards of healthfulness and abundance     year-round. Springs and wells can be wonderful water sources, but certain tests should be performed before you commit to buying a home with an independent water supply. Well Water Quality and Safety According to the Environmental Protection Agency, about 15 percent of American homes are supplied by private water sources. Privately owned wells are not governed … (0 comments)

Considerations before you begin view properties, make a list of "must haves."

buying: Planning to sell your current Winchester, Virginia home and buy another one? - 01/30/10 01:47 AM

Most homeowners would prefer to know where they're going to live before selling their current home. However, given current market conditions, you should buy before selling only if you can qualify to buy the new house and keep the older home should it not sell quickly.
Most homes sell if they are priced right for the market. But, to be on the safe side, be extremely conservative in estimating the probable sale price of your current home. And, factor in the possibility that it will take longer than you anticipate to sell.
An option for some sellers is to keep … (1 comments)
