SOLD: 8 DAYS ON MARKET - 2243 16th St NE in Washington, DC. After recently getting my DC license, this was the first listing there. While I had no plans to work outside of Virginia, a friend needed help with an estate sale...and the rest is history. Take a drive through DC and you'll be amazed at the construction and renovation work that's everywhere! As "Gentrification" takes off in the nation's capital, Millenials are moving into DC from the suburbs. This property will be renovated by its new owner and could easily have $200K in instant equity. Neighboring renovated properties are selling for $575K and up. With the right property, a remarkable investment opportunity awaits in DC.
SOLD with a happy ending and a very happy Seller. Despite being warned by a competing agent that this property, listed at $544,900, was "over-priced," our analysis indicated we were on target. Underpricing can sell a home faster, and the Sellers never know because they are unlikely to see the appraisal report, but a listing agent's ethical mandate is to sell for "the best and highest price" - not just ASAP. By the way, the property closed *above* list price at $555,000. In more ways than one it PAYS to run a rigorous market analysis!
SOLD - 1424 Powells Tavern Place in Herndon's "Crestbrook" neighborhood. Congratulations ladies on a job well done! Three weeks of teamwork with multiple contractors led to ONE busy open house and contract activity that resulted in an amazing final offer! This property was under contract 4 days later.
1424 Powells Tavern Place, 4BRs, 2½ BAs and fully remodeled in Herndon's "Crestbrook" neighborhood. The property was opened to agents and the public for the first time at Sunday's Open House on April 8. An offer was prepared that same evening and we had a fully ratified Contract by Wednesday. Special thanks to Buddy Saunders Flooring for the new Gunstock oak hardwoods and carpet. Buddy went above and beyond! The weeks of team effort paid off on this renovation project and the new owners are going to have a GORGEOUS home with countless upgrades!
A LIST OF EXPERIENCED, SENIOR LOAN OFFICERS IS AVAILABLE TO ALL MY BUYER CLIENTS.
EACH ONE HAS AN AREA OF EXPERTISE. ONE HAS AN UNDERWRITING BACKGROUND. THEY HAVE PROVEN THEIR SKILL IN SAFELY GETTING CLIENTS TO CLOSING BY BEING ORGANIZED, PROACTIVE AND PUTTING THE CLIENT’S NEEDS FIRST.
**NEW:** ONE LENDER IS CURRENTLY OFFERING NON-REPAYABLE GRANT MONEY TO FIRST-TIME BUYERS (OR THOSE WHO HAVEN'T LIVED IN THEIR OWN HOME FOR 3 YEARS) TO SUBSIDIZE UP TO 3% FOR *DOWN PAYMENT* COSTS. OTHERS HAVE LOAN PROGRAMS THAT CAN MINIMIZE MORTGAGE INSURANCE PREMIUMS. VARIOUS LENDERS HAVE PORTFOLIO LOANS THAT ARE UNIQUE TO THAT INSTITUTION.
WHY AND WHEN SHOULD A BUYER ADDRESS MORTGAGE PREAPPROVAL?
IT PAYS TO ADDRESS THE MORTGAGE LOAN BEFORE GETTING IN THE CAR TO LOOK AT HOUSES. WHY SHOP FOR THE HOUSE AND THEN FIGURE OUT HOW TO PAY FOR IT? OR... LOSE THE HOUSE YOU WANT TO A PREPARED BUYER WHO HAS ALREADY SECURED LENDER PREAPPROVAL.
SHOPPING WITH LENDER APPROVAL IS EMPOWERING. IT ALSO BUILDS SELLER CONFIDENCE IN THE BUYER AND REDUCES BUYER STRESS. ALL IT TAKES IS 24 - 48 HOURS....AND THEN BUYERS CAN SHOP WITH CONFIDENCE!
It's easy to list a home that's in perfect condition, has updated appliances, granite, etc and is decorated to the hilt. That kind of home sells itself. The wise original owner of this home added as many builder upgrades as possible - items that are too expensive to add in the years that follow. However, many of the updates that buyers expect today were absent and this listing was a challenge. It had 7 Open Houses and required lots of hands on effort to get to closing, but the right buyers came along at the right time. Any sooner would not have worked for the new owners. Timing is everything in real estate...and life. 👍
SOLD - 21383 Applegrove Ct, Ashburn. This lovely 5-bedroom, 3.5 bath home was a challenge, but for every Seller there is at least one right Buyer.
My favorite room is found in the first photo. The sunroom/ family room has a 10' ceiling and would make a wonderful conservatory - especially if it included a Steinway baby grand!...but that's just a musician's opinion. ;-)
21678 Hazelnut Square in Sterling: Just on the market and having its first Open House today at 1:00, this rare 3-level condo townhouse is in excellent condition. The previous owner remodelled and updated two years ago. Even the HVAC system (indoors and out) was replaced. The private deck has a panoramic view of the common area and walking path at rear. In the distance you'll hear the carillon from a nearby church gently chime on the hour. Close to Rte 7, Fairfax Cty Pkwy and local shopping centers, with its quiet cul-de-sac location this one won't last long.
