dmv: Guide to Buying a Home During the Pandemic - 09/14/20 10:57 AM
Does finding a home feel like an impossible dream? 
 
As an exclusive buyers agent, I help people buy homes and it's tough out here. Last night one of my buyer clients sent me a text saying, "Did you see what the house on 13th sold for? $80,000 over the list price!" My clients offer was one of 15 offers for the 1500 square foot rowhouse.
My client made a decent offer for the rowhouse on 13th in N.E. Washington DC. He even decided to escalate a little over the list price and keep the appraisal contingency. But as I told him, you can't … (2 comments)

dmv: Best Way to Evaluate a Property - 10/09/18 03:13 PM
When you are making one of the biggest purchases of your life, you need to know how to properly evaluate the home. 

 
When buying a home, it's important to know the steps in determining the value of a property.  There are several "big ticket" items that should be evaluated to help you decide your offer. These include the condition of the roof, the age of the HVAC, water heater, well & septic systems, chimney and overall maintenance of a property. 
The website, Building Intelligence Center is a handy website. Take a picture of the serial number on the HVAC and quickly look up the age … (0 comments)

Shout Out to My Listing Agents in the DC Metro Area
This is a great big Shout Out for getting me into your listing! It's been freezing cold, literally, in the DMV (cool slang phrase meaning DC, Maryland & Virginia Metropolitan area) and I have been standing on front porches trying to unlock frozen lockboxes. A few times I've managed to open the lock box only to find that the key won't open the frozen door lock. The shout out/thank you is for all you agents (you know who you are) who answered your phone when I called you in a … (3 comments)
