  • About Rental Agents

    Finding a rental is not always easy. Depending on occupancy rates in a particular area, it actually might be quite difficult to find available rentals that are also within your price range and meet all of your pre-determined requirements. However, even in areas where there is not a great deal of competition for the available rentals, renters may still have some difficulty finding the perfect home.

    Figure Out Your Needs

    The first step of any rental search should begin with the potential renter carefully identifying all of their needs in a home. This list of needs will be different for every renter. While some renters are simply looking for a place to eat, bathe and sleep other renters may be looking for a living space which will serve a number of purposes including working, entertaining and participating in leisure activities or hobbies. Do you need to be close to the Metro? Do you want granite counters? Do you need a washer and dryer in the unit? What’s your budget?

    It is important to prioritize your needs and distinguish between needs and wants because you’ll probably have to compromise.

    Use Our Website

    Once a renter has a good idea of the basic features he or she needs in a rental, it’s time to use our website to identify neighborhoods, condos and properties.  This research will give the renter an idea of the types of properties available for rent in Northern Virginia.

    Listing a home for sale involves a bit more than simply putting a sign out on the lawn and waiting for a buyer. When you decide to list your home, it’s wise to work with a real estate agent who can take you through the process. A Nesbitt Realty agent will take the time to carefully walk through the home with you. Our Realtor will go over what you can do to improve the property for a quicker sale and a better asking price. Our Realtor will go over the comparable sales in your area and suggest the best listing price. Once you’ve agreed on the asking price, we will sign an agreement with Nesbitt Realty that lays out the details, including commissions, duration, and more. Nesbitt Realty will take professional photographs throughout the home, and then list the property on the MLS. Our marketing will drive home buyers to you ensuring a quick sale at the highest possible price.
