sold! 1 bed | 1 bath in mclean gardens

Congratulations to my client on the purchase of his new condo! This one was a doozy. We originally put in an offer in November 2018. We won a bidding war(!). Then the seller decided not to move forward (!?!?!). Cue dramatics. My client and I kept searching but nothing was catching my clients interest. After looking for 2 more months, I reached back out to the listing agent for this unit and asked: would the seller be interested in selling now?? It was kismet because this time, the seller moved forward. My client is thrilled and so is the seller. Persistence is the...

buying in 2018? what you need to know

The DC real estate market has been hot for years but 2018 is proving to be unique. Inventory is low, multiple offers are still a reality and most listings are under contract in 7 days or less. Interested in buying but have no idea where to start? I’ve pulled together a cheat sheet for you. Talk to a lender. Besides finding the place you want to buy, choosing a lender is the most important step in purchasing. Obtaining a loan is difficult. Your credit has to be good. You debt to income ratio has to be just right. Lenders need reams of documentation. Stay away from the big banks. Work with someone who’s local and knows the market. Once you’ve spoken to a lender and they have all the info they need (bank statements, salary stubs, financial records, your credit score. it’s invasive. get ready.) you’re pre-qualified and ready to start searching. Find a property. While searching online is the place most people start, photos can only tell you so much. Visit properties. See as many properties as you can to see what appeals to you. The search can take a day or several months. Make an offer. Once you find a property you love, write an offer. The DC market is competitive which means you’ll need to make quick decisions. If a listing is priced well, looks good and is in a desirable location, it’s going under contract in 1-7 days and often has multiple offers. Execute the paperwork. After your offer has been reviewed and ratified, the contract is sent to the lender and the title company. The title company reviews the title work. Their job is to make sure the property is delivered with a clear title. The lender starts processing your loan and orders the appraisal. Fulfill the contingencies (if there are any). With the increase in multiple offers, contingencies have been on the decline. If the sellers accept an appraisal, financing or home inspection contingency, fulfill them. If it goes smoothly, you head to closing. Execute the final reviews. Before closing, you do a final walk through to see if the property is still in good shape. You will also review the CD (the closing document) 3 days before closing to make sure all your fees are correct. If everything is in order, you sign the documents at the closing table. Complete the documents. Once all the documents are signed, you’re...
