Fall, winter and spring is when you get the seasonal views of the water! Let's just say the pace was brisk, each of those homes sold in less thirty days. My twin sister Patt...

Recent Testimonials from my Potomac Club Home Sellers  Real Estate Agents are not all created equal. I had my home on the market for months with another realtor with little interest from potential buyers. Just weeks away from giving up and renting again, I decided to take a risk and hire Claudia. We had two offers within two weeks and the house sold for more than I expected given similar homes were also for sale in the neighborhood for far less. Claudia was always working, always answering my questions and her attention to detail on getting the little things right from photos to listing wording put her on an entirely different level from the other realtors. Even through the closing process, Claudia was able to walk me through every little detail better than the closing company. I truly ...

How is the government shutdown impacting mortgage loans?Something else to worry about with this government shutdown. It is creating uncertainty everywhere and the Real Estate Market is no exception.Most loans will still be processedIf you are currently under contract to purchase a home and you are worried about the government shutdown might impact your closing, be sure to check with your lender asap. Most loan programs are not impacted by the government shutdown as most loans are not funded by the federal government. Having said that if you are a federal worker or government contractor and your lender is unable to verify your employment this might cause a delay. In many cases lenders can use your work number to avoid a delay, but be sure to double check. I just checked for one of my buy...

Should I get a Home Inspection?First thing first. The answer to that question should always be YESWhy should I get a Home InspectionAs a home buyer you always want to get a home inspection to determine the condition of the property. Home Inspectors will look at the entire home with a trained eye. A Home Inspector will test everything and look in places you might not even think to look. As a home buyer you want to know what you are getting yourself into. You want to know the good, the bad and the ugly.When should I get a Home InspectionA home inspection will be conducted after you are under contract. Many home buyers always ask me why don't we have a home inspection prior to making an offer. Well if we do that, you might be spending money on something you are unable to purchase, if you l...

Attention Home Buyer 2019 could be your year  Are you looking to purchase a home in or around Woodbridge VA? 2019 could be your year to finding that perfect home. We have seen the local Real Estate market turn more into a buyers market over the last couple of weeks. Granted we are currently in the holiday season and we really have to wait and see what the 2019 spring Real Estate Market holds for us. So far we have seen prices stabilize and with fewer buyers the market has become less competitive.Bidding WarsWith the colder temperatures the market has cooled down a bit and there are fewer bidding wars and if there are multiple offers on an home you are no longer competing with 5 to 10 different buyers. At the moment it looks like the higher interest rates and higher prices have pushed so...

Woodbridge Real Estate Update & ForecastBy Claudia S. Nelson, eXp Realty   So let me say this first. No one has a crystal ball and no one really can predict the future. We can make educated guesses based on historic data and what we are seeing going on in the market. If anyone tells you differently don't believe them, do your own research. If it was that easy we would have way more millionaires and billionaires or even lottery winners.Lets look back at 2018To understand what might happen in 2019 lets take a look back at what's been going on in 2018. The beginning of 2018 we saw low inventory of homes for sale and lots of buyers out there wanting to take advantage of the market before interest rates would go up even higher. We saw multiple bidding wars, buyers escalating prices and forgo...
