For-sale-by-owners are rare nowadays. In fact, the number of FSBOs has dropped to record lows over the past year or so. With today’s more complex transactions--such as short sales and foreclosures and frequent changes in mortgage lending--more sellers are finding they need the help of real estate professionals to guide them through the every-changing and increasingly complex process. Sellers were once enticed to try to sell their homes without realtors because they thought they could save on commission fees. Sellers are now realizing that if they don’t use an agent, it will likely cost them more in the long run, Many sellers consider selling their home themselves with the idea of saving the commission cost of paying the agent. Sellers do not always realize that the buyers are aware tha...

So I write this post and it's a little after 8 pm on December 31, 2010. Change is something most people are afraid of. I am someone who actually embraces change with a vengeance. I have never feared change. A quote that I look to many times is ""The wise man in the storm prays to God, not for safety from danger, but deliverance from fear" Ralph Waldo Emerson. Change can invoke fear. That fear can sometimes creep into my psyche. I face fear head on and work through it always. This has made me the woman I am today personally and professionally.My career choice took me down the path of real estate, who would have guessed if you had known me 30 years ago. Real estate is an interesting and ever changing industry and if you fear change than this is not the path for you. Everything in my worl...

I spent most of Saturday and a few hours Sunday this weekend taking lovely out of town buyers house hunting in Vienna, Virginia.  Vienna is one of Northern Virginia's most charming suburbs:  gorgeous, rolling hills, soaring trees, charming shops and restaurants, and this weekend's weather and fall color would have made a great postcard for the best of life in Northern Virginia. These buyers are also sellers, prepping to sell their house on the West coast, and are making pretty significant improvements to the house because updated homes are what's selling their market (and frankly in any market).   They listened to their agent, looked around at the comps and saw that all of them had updated kitchens and baths, so that's what they are doing.    Then they come to Vienna, where we saw at le...

The last 2 weeks have been interesting, in 2 separate offer situations with the same buyer the sellers have had unrealistic expectations on what they feel their home is worth. I truly believe it is the responsibility of the listing agent to make their homeowner aware of what can and cannot affect the value of their home. It is also the listing agent's responsibility to go over comparables and what can happen at appraisal time should they find a buyer willing to overpay for the property. In the first offer situation the seller told his agent to absolutely stop telling him that the bank determines the value of the home with an independant appraisal. The seller then countered us with removal of the appraisal contingency and the guarantee that my buyer would pay the difference between the a...

Vienna VA Photos The weather in Vienna was just so perfect today the trees were hinting of the color changes ahead, the temperature was in the 80's, and I thought it would be a great day to go for a drive and take a few photos.   I was right!  So I thought what better place to post a few photos of Vienna VA then here!  For those of you that are not familiar with Vienna VA, Vienna Virginia is located in northern Virginia in Fairfax County.  In the 2000 census, Vienna had a population of about 14,453.  Vienna is just 17 miles from our nation's capital Washington DC, and it is conveniently located near Dulles International airport to the west.

Here is something you do not see everyday. In fact, when homes come on the market in Tyson's Woods, they almost always sell in less than 30 days. Next week we are having the Open House. 2245 Richelieu in Vienna, has been remodeled, with a new kitchen and baths. The Master Suite is enormous and has an ensuite bath with connecting dressing area and new cabinets and marble. All that and a brick fireplace. That is just the Master. Check back, we will have more photos and a video walkthrough by next Monday.
