Should you put your house buying plans on hold? 
"Is it still crazy competive for buyers right now?" and "Is it possible to get a deal on a house for sale?" are common questions from home buyers these days. My answer to both questions is, Yes!

home buyers: 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)

Consider The New Google Prototype Car When Buying a Home 
Think it doesn't matter? Consider this;
the Washington DC area is ranked #1 in the country for traffic congestion
Every home buyer in Virginia, Maryland and Washington DC considers their daily commute when buying a home. In fact, houses for sale near Metro and in the city are priced higher and sell faster than homes in outlying suburbs. So how, exactly, will the Google Prototype Car change the way we live and work? The car can drive itself. The car will follow instructions and move people and goods around much like a taxi or chauffeur … (31 comments)

home buyers: Protecting Home Buyers in a Worst Case Scenario - 05/06/14 02:37 AM
Protecting Home Buyers in a Worst Case Scenario 
I was expecting trouble. Communication with the listing agent was growing stranger by the day. A few weeks before Settlement, the listing agent asked if we could move settlement because the sellers may
not have enough cash to go to settlement.
 An hour later, we were told it was a false alarm and the sellers could now hold up their end of the agreement. We also received emails asking us for information we had provided weeks before.
The Day Before Settlement the listing agent said the sellers were not completely ready to move. They … (2 comments)
