Buying a new home checklist

Are you thinking of buying a new home?

There are several key steps that your Virginia Licensed Real Estate Agent will help you through. Knowing what these are in advance can help you not be surprised later on:

your lender
Nesbitt Realty never makes any money from your loan. This frees us to make the most objective recommendation possible.
  • Know your budget, consult with a financial institution about what you can be pre-approved for.
  • Know your needs, including:
    • Number of bedrooms
    • Location
    • Walking distance to a bus stop
    • Walking distance to a metro stop
    • Price
    • Property condition
    • Age of the property
    • Garage Parking
    • Schools
  • Amenities (for condos)homes with a garage
    • Indoor/Outdoor pool
    • Putting Greens
    • Tennis courts
    • In unit washer/dryer
    • Utilities included in condo fees
    • Basketball courts
    • Bowling
    • Concierge service
    • Controlled access
  • Realize that something will have to give to get what you want, prioritize your needs so that you can get the most important features. Use our school search to find homes for sale in a particular school district
  • Budget time and money:
    • Finding any home is easy. Finding the right home requires time invested in looking at properties.
    • Money for down-payments and closing costs can vary from a couple percentage points to a cash purchase where you provide the entire amount up front.

“Using a real estate agent is a very good idea,” says the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). “All the details involved in home buying [and selling], particularly the financial ones, can be mind-boggling. A good professional can guide you through the entire process and make the experience much easier.”

Selecting the right professional is the key to a successful real estate transaction. Better than working with a simple real estate agent, you’ll want the services of a Realtor®.

What’s the Difference Between a Real Estate Agent and a Realtor?

More than two million people have earned real estate licenses but only a small percentage of these are Realtors. Realtors are members in good standing of the National Association of Realtors, their state association of Realtors and a local real estate board. Realtors are held to high standards of ethical behavior and must undergo continuing education annually to remain accredited.

All agents of Nesbitt Realty are Realtors!

Property Management Basics

Julie Nesbitt
Julie Nesbitt manages property in Northern VA. Her landlords value her attention to detail.

Property management is a business in and of itself. If you want to invest in real estate, but you don’t want to be a property manager, the solution is really quite simple: employ the services of Nesbitt Realty. Our family-run business is experienced with managing the day-to-day operations of properties just like yours. We manage residential properties including homes, condos and townhouses.

A big value-add provided by your Nesbitt Realty property manager is “separation”. This to say, your Nesbitt Realty property manager maintains a level of separation between the landlord and the tenants and the property. As you may already know, it’s important to invest in real estate without emotionally investing in tenants or property. Your Nesbitt Realty property manager helps ensure that you always make the best decision for your family, rather than making the best decision for the tenant’s family.

window
Nesbitt Realty currently manages properties in Carlyle Towers, the Jamieson and across Northern VA.

So, your Nesbitt Realty rental property manager serves as a buffer between the owner and his tenants. Nesbitt Realty can help you find tenants, handling repair projects and maintenance, oversee improvements, collect rent, and even pay some expenses and taxes. The specific tasks we handle vary based upon upon the needs and wishes of the property owner. Additionally, a competent Nesbitt Realty property manager gives you protection from certain liabilities.

Nesbitt Realty usually charges a percentage of the rents collected. Every aspect of Nesbitt Realty property manager’s responsibilities will be outlined in a contract signed by both Nesbitt Realty and the landlord. This agreement details financial responsibilities and specifies the types of financial reports the landlord can expect.

Your Nesbitt Realty property manager will stay current on new laws and condo regulations which may be relevant to your situation. Nesbitt Realty Property Management takes a lot of the burden off of owning rental real estate.

Art Festival in Old Town Alexandria VA

Will and Julie at Art Festival
At the 2009 Alexandria Art Festival

This weekend Julie and I went to Old Town with the Alexandria Fun with Friends Group to enjoy the Alexandria Art Festival. The Art Festival occurs every year around this time and features artists and craftsmen from around the area.

2009 Art Festival
2009 Art Festival in Old Town Alexandria

King Street closes to vehicular traffic and artists set-up stalls in the street. It’s an easy way to enjoy lots of art from lots of folks. The weather was very co-operative, neither too hot nor too cold.

Old Town Alexandria
2009 Old Town Alexandria

This 12 foot tall image of a koi caught my eye, as did many smaller pieces.

Arts Festival in Old Town Alexandria

I found that my camera was drawn to the larger pieces, but this is probably because I knew they would photograph well. There were many smaller items for sale too. However, many of us felt that this year’s festival seemed to offer more pieces that would be welcomed in a restaurant or hotel lobby than usual and a few number of the smaller pieces that look nice in a home.

There were several musicians playing up and down the street. This harpist sang like an angel, but I have to admit that my favorite was the steel drum player.

King Street
People walking King Street during Art Festival

We walked all the way up to Washington Street before turning around and making way back to the Potomac. After some discussion the group voted to eat at the Charthouse. At the Charthouse, the ladies had a little wine and we enjoyed some relaxed conversation and then dinner. For my part, I think the food at the Charthouse is good, but not great. Even though it’s a little pricey, it’s worth it because of the pleasant views of the Potomac that are offered.
