Keller Williams Arlington and AFAC

November 23, 2010

Keller Williams Arlington helped raise and donate $40,000 to the Arlington Food Assistance Center, AFAC.  The event was a huge success.  This was the 3rd year in a row that Keller Williams Arlington, my office, has put on the fundraiser!  Next year we will do it again and look forward to raising even more money!

The donation goes to AFAC’s Permanent home campaign.  from AFAC: The Permanent Home Campaign seeks to retire the mortgage on our “home” so we can commit all of our resources to our only, and ever-growing mission: providing supplemental groceries for our neighbors in need.

11 Reasons to Put Your Home on the Market During the Holidays

November 20, 2010


We are going to sell our home in the spring….   Do you think there are any other sellers saying that same thing?  Of course there are.   Let’s avoid the competition and get you top dollar right now.

11 Reasons to Put Your Home on the Market During the Holidays

  1. People who look for a home during the Holidays are more serious buyers!
  1. Serious buyers have fewer houses to choose from during the Holidays and less competition means more money for you!
  1. Since the supply of listings will dramatically increase in January, there will be less demand for your particular home!  Less demand means less money for you!
  1. Houses show better when decorated for the Holidays!
  1. Buyers are more emotional during the Holidays, so they are more likely to pay your price!
  1. Buyers have more time to look for a home during the Holidays than they do during the working week.
  1. Some people must buy before the end of the year for tax reasons!
  1. January is traditionally the month for employees to begin new jobs.  Since transferees can not wait until Spring to buy, you must be on the market now to capture the market!
  1. You can still be on the market, but you have the option to restrict showings during the six or seven days during the holidays!
  1. You can sell now for more money and we will provide for a delayed closing or extended occupancy until early next year!
  1. By selling now, you may have an opportunity to be a non-contingent buyer during the Spring, when many more houses are on the market for less money!

This will allow you to sell high and buy low!

Is this condo FHA approved?

November 16, 2010

Is this condo FHA approved?  That is a popular question.  FHA offers a great mortgage loan program that allows the buyer to put down only 3.5% of the sales price.  So, it is a very popular program.  One condition is the condo must be FHA approved. (*note, the FHA loan can be used to buy condos, townhomes or single family homes)   There are several requirements a condo building or development must meet to become FHA approved.  And there is a list of the approved condos at https://entp.hud.gov/idapp/html/condlook.cfm

When searching this list, be sure to search different ways,  try the building name, then search using only the zip code.  I bring this up because sometimes the condo is FHA approved but not showing in your first search attempt.   If you have any questions, please contact me.  I work with a lot of FHA approved buyers and can help you, too.  I can save you time and money.

Be sure  your condo is FHA approved before going to see it in person, or getting your hopes up or writing any type of offer.  Because if it is not, it can be a lengthy process to get it approved.  And no one wants to get excited about something then have it pulled out from underneath you.
