Day 3️⃣ of the 7️⃣ Tips Series⁣
7️⃣ QUESTIONS YOU NEED TO ASK BEFORE BUYING A CONDO⬇️ ⁣

What questions should you ask while touring a property❓ ✨Condo Edition✨ ⁣

Thinking about the condo life? They definitely have their benefits, but be sure to ask your Realtor® these questions before deciding if this one's the right one for you!⁣

🌟 How much are the monthly condo fees and what's included?⁣

🌟 What are the rules and regulations of the community?⁣

🌟 Are there any amenities within the community?⁣

🌟 What's the parking and storage situation like?⁣

🌟 What is the renter vs. owner ratio and are there any rental restrictions?⁣

🌟 If insurance is included in my condo fee, do I still need my own insurance?⁣

🌟 What exactly do I own?⁣

✅PRO TIP: Many of these questions (and then some) will be answered in the condo docs (a package from the management company with ALLLLL of the information about the community) which you will get a chance to review once you're under contract. In the state of Virginia all buyers have a 3️⃣ day right of rescission while reviewing this package after receiving it.⁣

Day 2️⃣ of the 7️⃣ Tips⁣ Series
7️⃣ Tips for Selling During the Winter Months!⁣

🌟If it's snowing or icy, be sure all walkways are cleared and salted.⁣

🌟Curb Appeal ~ Just because it's winter doesn't mean you should neglect this! Be sure all leaves are cleared out of beds, dormant perennials are cut back and tidy and even add some winter containers to the porch and pansies/violas to the front beds. Need more winter landscaping/container ideas? I got you - DM me if you need help!⁣

🌟Clean your gutters! ⁣

🌟Stage your home for warm, cozy and inviting! Need help with this? I'm happy to connect you with my favorite home stagers that will get you back more than you invest! ⁣

🌟Let there be light! Brighten rooms by removing or opening all window treatments. Be sure all bulbs are functioning, have a high wattage and a warm glow (please no cold lights!). ⁣

🌟Show how outdoor rooms can be used even in the coldest months. If you have a covered porch or outdoor fireplace, be sure to keep the area fully furnished. Turn on outdoor lights, build a fire in the fireplace and drape a few thick throws over your outdoor furniture. ⁣

🌟In colder climates, be sure heat is on (and functioning properly!)and keep comfortable at 68-70 degrees. ⁣

✅ PRO TIP: Heat your house a degree or two warmer than usual just before showings, then set the temperature at normal. This prevents the heat from kicking on when the buyer is present, which can be a good thing because some HVAC systems are loud.⁣

Day 1️⃣ of 7️⃣ Tips⁣
Hooray! You've taken Step 1 in your Homebuying Journey, & you're approved! Here are 7️⃣ Things NOT TO DO After you Apply for your Mortgage⬇️ ⁣

🌟Don't quit or change your job. (If change is a possibility, disclose this to your lender immediately).⁣

🌟Don't Deposit Cash into Your Bank Accounts Before Speaking with Your Bank or Lender. ⁣

🌟Don't Make Any Large Purchases Like a New Car or Furniture for Your New Home.⁣

🌟Don't Co-Sign Other Loans for Anyone.⁣

🌟Don't Change Bank Accounts.⁣

🌟Don't Apply for New Credit...DO NOT APPLY FOR THAT KOHL'S CARD TO SAVE 20%!⁣

🌟Don't Close Any Credit Accounts.⁣

✅PRO TIP: Any blip in income, assets, or credit should be reviewed and executed in a way that ensures your home loan can still be approved. The best plan is to fully disclose and discuss your intentions with your loan officer before you do anything financial in nature.⁣

Is This the Year to Sell My House?

If one of the questions you’re asking yourself is, “Should I sell my house this year?” consumer sentiment about selling today should boost your confidence in the right direction. Even with the current health crisis that continues to challenge our nation, Americans still feel good about selling a house. Here’s why.

The Importance of Home Equity in Building Wealth

Homeownership has always been the first rung on the ladder leading to household wealth. As Freddie Mac recently posted:
“Homeownership has cemented its role as part of the American Dream, providing families with a place that is their own and an avenue for building wealth over time. This ‘wealth’ is built, in large part, through the creation of equity…Building equity through your monthly principal payments and appreciation is a critical part of homeownership that can help you create financial stability.”
Home equity is the difference between the current market value of your house and the amount you...

Why Not to Wait Until Spring to Make a Move

The housing market recovery coming into the new year has been nothing short of remarkable. Many experts agree the turnaround from the nation’s economic pause is playing out extremely well for real estate, and the current market conditions are truly making this winter an ideal time to make a move. Here’s a dive into some of the biggest wins for homebuyers this season.
1. Mortgage Rates Are Historically Low
In 2020, mortgage rates hit all-time lows 16 times. Continued low rates have set buyers up for significant long-term gains. In fact, realtor.com notes:

More Generations Are Living Under One Roof This Year

This year challenged us to reprioritize everything - from the way we use our time to where we work, how we socialize and gather together, and our needs at home. For many, this also meant making decisions about how to best support and engage with our extended families, near and far.

In some cases, we weren’t able to see our relatives and loved ones who were living in senior facilities. In others, maybe older children moved back home. Jessica Lautz, Vice President of Demographics and Behavioral Insights for the National Association of Realtors (NAR), says:
