Over 90% of home buyers in Mechanicsville Virginia do research on the internet before making their first home purchase. Many of these buyers find the home they want to buy online and then hire an agent who charges them full price. A real estate rebate is a great way for buyers to maximize their purchasing power. When you receive a real estate rebate, you effectively pay less (thousands less) for the property than a buyer who does not receive a home buyer rebate. The truth is, you don’t have to sacrifice service to get a great value.We offer a superior level of full service buyer representation:1. We are happy to show you homes Monday though Sunday.2. Helping you decide how much to offer on the home you want.3. Write and structure your offer to maximize the chances that it will be accept...

Home Buyer Rebates Give You Cash Back in Hanover County, VAWant more money in your pocket for closing? How about being able to afford a bigger/nicer Hanover County VA home? Now Equity First Realty Gives YOU Cash Back Buyer Rebates at ClosingBuyer rebates give you cash back at closing. If you have ever wondered how cash back rebates work for real estate, here is the inside scoop…When real estate agents sell a property, they usually collect a commission of between 2.5% and 3% of the property's gross sales price. So, on a $300,000 house, that would mean a commission of $9,000.00 to the selling broker. But many of today's home buyers are clearly willing and (with the Internet) able to search for and locate their own properties without relying on the agent to find houses for sale for them. F...

Back in October 2011 an 8 year old non-verbal autistic boy, Robbie Wood, went missing when he was at North Anna Battlefield Park with his family here in Hanover County, Virginia. Robbie was only wearing a red, long-sleeved T-shirt, blue athletic pants and blue shoes when he went missing. Overnight temperatures in the area hovered in 40s while daytime temperatures got up to the 60-70 degree range. Day after day passed with no sign of Robbie and thousands of professional searchers and locals came out to search for the boy. As each day passed hope dwindled that Robbie would be found alive.  At the time I was working at the Hanover County Communtiy Services Board (CSB) - the county mental health services as a mental health and substance abuse counselor. We were tasked with providing support...

My family traveled to my wife's parents for Christmas. While we were away our two dogs spent time at the local doggie day spa. That is our affectionate term for the local Hanover Society to Prevent Cruelty to Animals Kennel.  Sounds like a strange place to  send the family pets to the local SPCA but they have top notch facilities and really love on our dogs. A few years back they purchased a local kennel business to support their business of rescuing unwanted/abandoned pets.  While at the kennel our dogs get the full spa treatment. The get a 4 paw pedicure, a full body bath, and the serenade of their favorite friends barking. They even get some close together time since we found they prefer sharing the same kennel.  We love supporting this local organization and encourage you to do the ...

ALS Ice Bucket Challenge by Richmond VA Realtor Shannon Milligan I have been enjoying watching the ALS Ice Bucket Challenges that have been flooding my Facebook feed. I think it is a wonderful way to raise awareness for a lesser known disease and a fantastic fundraiser. Although I don't know the statistics, I do know millions upon millions have been donated due to this fun, simple challenge!  My Great Aunt passed away from ALS many years ago. We were not close and at the time the only thing I knew about ALS was that the toll it took was very difficult for her family to watch. It is like someone just gets lost inside of their own body. Richmond VA Realtor, Shannon Milligan, Nominated for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge As I was enjoying these videos, I was secretly hoping I would get out of...

Mechanicsville Home for Sale Under Contract Recently I met a new client who had made the decision of buying her first home. With rates on the rise, as well as housing prices, now is a great time to invest in home ownership and stop paying the landlord. My buyer and I spoke about wants and needs for her new place and set up property tours. Off we went! Think with your head and then your heart. On our very first trip out to tour homes for sale in Mechanicsville, my client found a wonderful single family, colonial style home that was meticulously maintained and within the budget. This home had everything on her list: 4 spacious bedrooms, 2.5 awesome bath rooms, a formal living room, large family room, kitchen with a sunroom, and a fenced in yard on a level lot. The catch? It wasn't in my c...
