About Our Rebate For Home Buyers In Alexandria Virginia

Photo of 8504 Fort Hunt Rd
You may have heard that some companies rebate a portion of their commission and wonder how that works. Many first-time buyers don’t understand that Realtor commissions are paid by the seller.

Nesbitt Realty never charges the buyer a commission or fee because we are paid by the seller. In many cases, a seller pays the company representing the buyer 2% to 3% of the sales price. Nesbitt Realty rebates a portion of that commission to our buyer client. We use the remainder to fund operating expense and to pay agents like Julie Nesbitt. Of course, there are terms and conditions that apply. For example, you’ll need to sign a representation agreement that will spell out the specifics.

More specifically, 8504 Fort Hunt Rd in Alexandria is currently listed for $699,900. 8504 Fort Hunt Rd Alexandria VA is one of several Split Foyer homes in Riverside Gardens.

Where is Ascot Woods and home much to homes cost there?

Ascot Woods is located in Woodbridge, VA. Its west of I-95 and is right off of Cardinal Drive. It’s located near the Northern Virginia Community College, Potomac Hospital and Potomac Mills Mall. The Community consists of 84 single family homes. The nearest schools for the children would be, Henderson Elementary School, Rippon Middle School, and Potomac Senior High School. In my opinion the houses are all very taken care of. They’re quite large houses, and the neighborhood seems very pleasant and quiet. There is also a nice sized playground right in the middle of the community for all the children.

4 things to do to sell your property

  1. tipClean- The most obvious is cleaning. As much as you enjoy leaving your dirty laundry scattered everywhere and the dirty dishes piled up in the sink, cleaning is unavoidable. Hiring cleaners is often the best solution. Professional cleaners will scrub and clean the places you will easily overlook. The better your property shows, the easier it will sell.
  2. Landscaping- The yard and the exterior of your home is the first thing potential buyers will see. Removing weeds, dead branches and making sure downspouts are functioning correctly are relatively inexpensive tasks that will do wonders on the first impression of your home. If you’re thinking of moving next spring, (then) this winter, you should be working on your landscaping.
  3. Paint- Painting your home in a neutral color that appears to a broad audience will help purchasers envision themselves in your home. Auburn red might look great to you, but it has the potential to turn off buyers.
  4. De-clutter- It might be tough to let go of some items you have lying around your home. De-cluttering your home will give the impression of more space and give a more desirable impression.

Single Women, Condo Living and Everything In-Between

Recent studies suggest that single women currently make up approximately 47 percent of the condominium buying market in the United States. The reason is pretty obvious, if you think about it. Condominiums are an increasingly popularly housing choice for single women because of the various benefits that condos offer including convenience, security, and often virtually maintenance-free living.

For starters, security matters. For single women living alone in large, urban areas, one of the many benefits of living in a condominium are 24-hour concierge and security desks, video and security cameras in hallways and stairwells, and gated or enclosed parking areas. So if you’re thinking about buying a condo, carefully consider first the kinds of security features and amenities that are available in the unit; very often peace of mind is worth its weight in condo fees. Additionally, it’s important to know your potential new neighborhood. Condominiums tend to be located in urban areas where there are other young, working professionals as well as families. Make sure you know your neighborhood inside and out before you make an offer on a condominium and check the local county website for crime rates, local community news, and other annual statistics and reports.

Next, convenience is the key. Another factor that is crucially important when considering buying a condo if you are living as a single professional woman. In many condominium communities and developments there are office personnel to receive packages as well as other day-to-day business services such as dry cleaning, tailoring, and spa and fitness facilities. Some of the larger condominium developments also feature even more advanced amenities such as a grocers, bank branches and ATM’s, and many other services that make a single working woman’s life just a little easier.

Finally, consider maintenance in relation to time and money. Many single family homes require lengthy, time consuming and ongoing maintenance such as painting every three to five years, worrying about pipes freezing during the winter or getting the rain gutters cleaned. While it’s true that you as a condo owner must be financially responsible for the upkeep and maintenance of your condo’s common area, typically condo associations oversee the day-to-day management of the property itself. What does this mean for the busy single woman? Well, if the doors stick and the roof springs a leak, you can bet that your sassy self won’t be called upon to find someone to fix it. But be sure to check your condo buildings’ rules and regulations first. Most condo associations have a list of rules and regulations that you will have to agree to before you purchase a unit in the building. These rules may limit the number and weight of pets; how many visitors you can have at a time including how often and for how long; if you can rent out your unit; and when you can have work done in your unit. Ask the listing broker for the complete set of building rules and regulations.

Before you make an offer on a condo you want to be sure to consider what matters to you most as a busy single woman and those major concerns include safety and security, convenience and location, and matters of maintenance compared to other home ownerships costs. Happy Hunting Miss Independent!

Single Family Homes less than $350k with easy access to the metro

If you have a friend who is looking for easy metro access, a 3 bedroom home and only wants to spend about $300k to $350k  it will be tough. But here are my best suggestions:

  • The Huntington Metro is also an option at with homes at Bucknell Manor and the Fort Hunt area. This is a traditional 1950’s neighborhood with lots of trees and good schools.  Huntington Metro has 4500 parking spaces, so it’s a great metro to live close to because you can park and ride.
  • I also like parts of Franconia near Van Dorn but there is no parking at the Van Dorn Metro. Springfield and Burke are quite suburban but there is parking at the Franconia Springfield Metro.
  • I doubt you can find anything in Alexandria or Arlington that comes close to fitting in your budget. It’s possible to find home not far from the Vienna Metro. If you head further out towards Centreville and Oakton you can might find a home that suits you and you can drive to park at the Vienna Metro.
