Palmer Harned, REALTOR Helping Northern Virginia home buyers and sellers reach their real estate goals
(17)

I specialize in the Northern Virginia real estate market, where I have lived my entire life. I attended Virginia Tech where I minored in Real Estate in anticipation of making it my lifelong career. I enjoy working with first-time home sellers and buyers, but I have experience in everything from new construction to short sales to investment properties. I believe in the full-service approach to every transaction, and I will work with you every step of the way to ensure you fully understand the process. I keep you updated and informed, and you can always get a hold of me; I am your sole point of contact throughout the entire transaction. I utilize cutting-edge technology and extensive market knowledge to deliver best-in-class service in a calm and organized manner. My primary goal is to make each transaction as stress-free as possible. I stay active in the community as a member of Preservation Virginia and the Virginia Tech Alumni Association. A portion of the proceeds from each of my transactions goes towards the Animal Welfare League of Arlington.

I loved selling this home! It was a beautiful horse farm in Prince William County that sold for 100% of list price in just 5 days, at a time when similar homes were sitting on the market for a month or longer. And of course, having the nicest family as clients didn’t hurt either!🗝

With less houses on the market, buyers need to be extra competitive and sellers need to know how to manage the frenzy. A good realtor will have strategies in place for both scenarios, so make sure that's a question you're asking!🗝️

Homes are literally flying off the shelves right now!🔥 If you’re a buyer, how do you compete? If you’re a seller, how do you manage the frenzy? Below are the top 3 tips for each:

BUYERS
▫️Have your loan pre-approval done, and be mentally & financially prepared to offer above list price without asking for credits
▫️Consider doing the home inspection “for information only”, and making all contingency timeframes as short as possible
▫️Make sure your agent has asked if the sellers are looking for anything in particular (rent-back period, quick close, etc.)

SELLERS
▫️Discuss a strategy with your agent beforehand - will you accept offers as they come, set a deadline, cancel an open house?
▫️Remember the appraisal - just because a buyer is willing to pay a certain price doesn’t mean an appraiser is going to approve it
▫️Consider all terms, not just price - sometimes things like a reputable lender, a quick closing, or a high deposit amount are just as important

How to Find Down Payment Assistance Programs

Common buyer FAQ - "Are there any programs that can help me with my down payment?" Cash is hard to come by in a first-time purchase and every dollar helps! Good news - the answer is yes and the info is on today's blog post!🗝️

You just found your dream home, and it's within your budget! One thing has you scratching your head though, how are you going to come up with the 20% down payment? You're worried that if you can't find the money for the deposit, you'll lose your chance to buy your perfect house.

Has anyone watched Tidying Up with Marie Kondo? It’s amazing how much lighter decluttering can make you feel. Below are the top tips for #decluttering to get your home ready to sell:
▫️Box up and store any items you won’t need in the next 1-3 months
▫️Tidy up any “catch-all” areas
▫️Store toys and other miscellaneous items in attractive bins
▫️Clear refrigerator doors, countertops & windows of pictures, art projects, etc.
▫️Tastefully select only a few personal photos and hanging art to keep displayed
▫️Replace necessary accent pieces (rugs, throw pillows, etc.) with inexpensive neutral options

✨Newsflash✨ You don’t need to save for 10 years or spend your life savings to buy a house. You’re only required to put down 3% of the sales price for most loan programs - not the 20% that many think. It really is an achievable goal that you can accomplish in a few months even if you’re starting from scratch!🗝
