for sale: Updating an 80s or 90s House - 07/09/19 07:12 AM
I live and sell in a community where  A LOT of the homes were built in the 80s and 90s. As homes are turning over, there are some things that were done when these homes were built that are dated or ready to be replaced. I see, unfortunately, many folks who just want to leave all that for someone else. In this HGTV world, buyers are less enthusiastic than ever about taking on projects.
First on the list is updating kitchens and bathrooms. These are big projects and not everyone has the time or money to take them on prior to listing. If … (0 comments)

for sale: Closing out 2018 - 12/21/18 05:21 AM
Yesterday was my last closing of 2018.
I was able to help some first time home buyers find and purchase their first home. It took us several months to find the right property, and it included one 'mulligan,' but they are thrilled with the final selection and are planning their New Years Eve party in a new house! My other closing this week began last Saturday, when I met an out of town client at the property they were selling, along with a closing agent,  and they signed the paperwork, using a Power of Attorney (POA), on behalf of a relative. The purchaser, also … (1 comments)

for sale: Do you need a REALTOR® to buy a New Construction Home?? - 09/17/18 06:46 AM

Are you ready to buy a home and considering going in the route of new construction? It may seem like an easy enough process, where you get to call the shots of how you want your dream home to be, but there is a lot of risk when it comes to new construction if you are going in blindly. It's unfortunately not as trouble free as we'd like to hope, if you don't have the right representative by your side to help with the things that need to be looked out for from a professional's eye. Below, we'll dive into … (2 comments)

for sale: Life--and real estate--transitions - 05/29/18 06:29 AM

Through the years, it has become evident that I attract a certain type of client. So often, my clients are undergoing a major transition. When I say 'major,' I mean they may be relocating to another country, selling a home that has been left behind as they have begun living full time in another state or maybe they are looking for a wholesale change of location or property type. What makes this type of sale exciting, and unique, is that besides selling their home, the contents of the home must often be disposed of, too. This makes the process a bit more … (1 comments)

for sale: 5 Tips for Selling a Detached Home Quickly - 04/26/18 07:46 AM
 I recently wrote a post, 5 Tips for Selling a Townhouse Quickly and For The Most $. It was well received, so I thought I would delve into some things that buyers look at a little differently in single family homes. 
 For the most part, buyers who are purchasing a detached home, are at least 2nd time home owners (there is an exception to every rule, but this is often the norm in Northern Virginia). They are a more well-versed on the expenses associated with owning a home. They are usually more in tune with what their lives are going to look … (0 comments)

for sale: 5 Tips for Selling a Townhouse Quickly--and for the MOST $ - 04/09/18 12:13 PM

Northern Virginia has a lot of Townhouses. They are an affordable option to the sometimes very expensive single family homes in our area, so they are very popular with buyers. When you are ready to sell your townhouse, what are some easy things you can do to get it sold quickly--and for the most money?  Update fixtures. Often, people buying a TH are stretching their budget to purchase. If the property looks updated and contemporary, it will immediately be more attractive. Fixtures to include in your update: lighting, plumbing, cabinet knobs, and sometimes door hardware.  Paint. Inside: figure out what the most … (0 comments)

for sale: 5 things to do to enjoy your home NOW! - 01/29/18 05:03 AM
One aspect of my job is to counsel home sellers about maintenance and upgrades that they need to take care of before listing their home for sale.  Often these tasks are completed, literally, days before the property goes on the market. It is a shame because many of these tasks are things that, had they done them in advance of listing, the homeowner would have enjoyed while they still live there. Here are 5 of the things that often get pushed out until just before it is time to sell:
  Clean out closets and drawers: chances are you have old coats, mismatched … (4 comments)

for sale: A practical guide to navigating the POA Act in Virginia - 09/19/17 12:29 PM
In Virginia, there is a law, The Property Owners' Association Act,  that provides a prospective buyer with a framework and a time frame for reviewing the Property Owners Association (POA) Documents associated with a specific property. Upon receipt of these documents  the buyer has three days from receipt of the Property Owners Association Documents to review, and if necessary void, the contract. This sounds very simple, but what exactly to buyers and sellers need to know about this when they have a contract to buy or sell a home in Virginia?   There can be more than one Property Owners Association per home. In Reston, for … (0 comments)

There are currently 3 lots that are under contract. There will be more lots released as this section approaches completion. These homes … (0 comments)

for sale: Sellers: Think Like a Buyer! - 06/27/16 02:26 AM

You are ready to sell your house. It has been a great house for you! It is just the way you like it: super comfortable and relaxing to come home to each night. Does that mean it is ready to go on the market? You need to check out your competition!   Sellers are sometimes surprised at the things that I suggest that they update before listing their home. I don't just throw out things and I have no interest in having my sellers waste their hard earned money. The biggest driver in getting your home ready to go on the market is to make … (2 comments)

for sale: 5 Things That Drive Buyers Crazy! - 04/08/16 07:18 AM
Spring is a great time to sell your home. A lot of buyers find that it is a good time to look for a new place to live and sellers agree by putting their homes on the market.
If you are thinking of selling, you owe it to your bank account to think like a buyer while preparing your home for sale. So what are some of the things that buyers hate to see?
1. Filth. This should go without saying, but I see it all the time. It is hard to have your house for sale, but it is even harder when … (4 comments)
