Are you ready to buy a home?

Stuart Nesbitt

All across Northern Virginia, people are looking to a buy home – either now or in the future. Over the last few years, lower interest rates have come along, making it more affordable than ever to buy a home. In order to buy a house, you’ll need to start saving your money and have enough for the closing costs and a down payment. Check out our Closing Cost Estimator and talk to an agent to get an idea of what you need to have on hand to make your home purchase.

In most cases, the closing costs will run you around 5% of the property price. Before you purchase the home, you should always get an estimate. An estimate won’t be the exact price, although it will be really close. You should always plan to save up a bit more money than you need, just to be on the safe side. It’s always best to have more than enough than not enough.

You’ll know your ready to buy a home when you know exactly how much you can afford, and you’re willing to stick with your plan. When you buy a home and get your monthly mortgage payment, it shouldn’t be any more than 25% of your total monthly income. Although there are lenders out there who will say that you can afford to pay more, you should never let them talk you into doing so – but stick to your budget instead.

Pricing your home for sale

Will Nesbitt makes a funny face

Nesbitt Realty is here when you need us.

When you put your house on the market, setting the price is one of the most important decisions you make. Many Realtors believe that pricing is can make or break your sale. Under-price your home and you might cost yourself tens of thousands of dollars. Overprice your home and you risk watching it languish on the market. But how can a seller know exactly what the best price is?

Can you rely on Zillow? Not according to Zillow. Even in areas where the software has the highest confidence, Zillow says their pricing varies by 5% to 10%.

You can rely on your Realtor. Nesbitt Realty’s agents have years of experience pricing homes for sale and helping buyers and sellers. They combine this experience with proprietary real estate software to give you a valuation you can trust and to help you make your best decision possible.

Benefits of Renting

Andrew Patton

Andrew Patton

While there are some obvious benefits to buying over renting, there are also many benefits to be gained from renting a property as opposed to purchasing a property.

Some of the benefits of renting include the ability to save money while renting for the purpose of purchasing a home, and the inclusion of amenities which the renter would not likely be able to afford if they were to purchase a home instead of renting. Renters are also free from most maintenance concerns. This is especially true in a condominium. The renter may be responsible for small items such as changing light bulbs but more extensive repairs are typically covered by the landlord.

If you’re looking for a rental unit, contact us to learn more about how a rental agent can help you find the best deal possible.

We appreciate the opportunity to serve and thank you for considering us to manage your rental property.  We promise to give you our best effort every single day.  We strive for perfection. On those very rare occasions where we make a mistake, we move swiftly to correct our errors and make the damaged party whole.
