March 2019

March 20 marks the OFFICIAL first day of SPRING!  As the weather [finally] gets warmer and schools get closer to graduation, you may be thinking about MOVING... because - HEY - its a lot easier to move when it is warm outside and there isn't any snow on the ground!  If you need a local expert to help you with your move, give me a call!  I love to help my clients & am passionate about giving them TOP SHELF service.  I want MY clients to not only have their expectations MET, but EXCEEDED!     

PRO tips for residential home sellers & buyers:

  • SELLERS -  Inventory has been LOW in the DC Metro area for the first few months of 2019.  That said, to get a good offer on your home, you need to make sure it STANDS OUT (in a good way!!!) when you put it on the market.  I bring an experienced staging consultant to all of my sellers to generate a "to do" list of items they may choose to action BEFORE professional pictures are taken.  Decluttering, painting, moving furniture and fixing up small repair items can make a HUGE difference when you put your home up for sale.  I make a point to regularly meet with experienced vendors to interview them and get ideas of LOW COST IMPROVEMENTS that will make your home appeal to TODAY's buyer! 
  • BUYERS - (assuming you need a loan to pay for a home) - PLEASE shop around for lenders now.  You need to know what you can afford (not only from a monthly payment stand point, but also as far as the money you willl need for your down payment, loan origination fees and closing costs.) Look at MULTIPLE lending institutions to get a feel for customer service and interest rates.  If you can get a loan but the loan officer won't help you with a lender letter on a weekend, that may be a problem in a competitive offer environment!  I'm happy to start working with buyers before they are qualified to make a purchase, but getting a responsive lender EARLY in the process helps immensely!!!
