Have you received a letter about the NAR settlement recently? You're not alone. But before you get too excited, it's important to be cautious. Some folks, including myself, have gotten letters claiming we might be entitled to part of the settlement. However, there's a chance these letters could be scams.So, what should you do if you've received one? Don't rush into anything. Take time to research and maybe consult with a local attorney or someone you trust. In situations like these, it's better to be safe than sorry. Always verify before taking any action to protect yourself from potential scams.Got any questions, or worried about certain stuff related to the NAR settlement? Let's talk about it today!

Home is where the heart is. As a veteran Realtor with 20 years of experience, I've had the privilege of meeting home sellers at different stages of their lives. Even if sellers claim not to be emotionally attached, I know that's not always the case. Selling a beloved home can feel like losing years of memories and a neighborhood full of friendships, especially when it involves uprooting from your current city or community. In this blog, let's explore a three-step process to help you handle your emotions when selling your home.Step 1: Embrace Your FeelingsDuring the selling process, emotions may fluctuate. Challenges may arise, and you may feel disheartened by the results of a home inspection report. It's important to acknowledge and embrace these emotions as a natural part of the proces...

Every week Ritu Desai with Samson Properties releases weekly market activities that will impact home buyers, home sellers, landlords, and investors' decisions to buy a home or sell a home or rent a home in Fairfax, Loudoun, and Prince William counties. According to bright MLS Inventory -44.5% compared to last year this week last year. Even though the spring market is in full swing we are seeing a lack of seller's motivation to sell the home. It could be Over-housing or Where do I go reason. Lenders are seeing an uptick in mortgage applications. These are not primary home purchases but HELOC or 2nd loans with the equity the homeowners are sitting on. The sentiment is to update the home rather than venture into this tight inventory and uncertain market. This all leads to Home buyers house...

 A few of the layouts for the Lakeshore Condos at Ashburn Village Are you thinking about buying a condo at Lakeshore? Check out the 3 Reasons People Love Lakeshore.  Want to get an idea of how they look?  Have I got some videos for you! These are homes I've sold or rented recently.There are two types of 1 bedroom condo.  This first video shows the unit that spans the entire building, from front to back.  The bedroom is in the front with the living space in the back overlooking common area.  This owner opened up the unit by removing a wall but it gives you a good idea of the layout.  Since it is a 3rd floor unit, it has vaulted ceilings.  This home has sold but click the image at the bottom of the blog if you want to know when it comes on the market again. This next video is also of a 1 ...

Ashburn Village Market Statistics February 2023Ashburn Village is a fantastic community to live in.   Click hereto learn all about the amenities the neighborhood offers.In February, nine homes sold with an average sales price of 100.3% of the list price.  They were on the market for an average of 25 days.  While that seems long in comparison to what we were seeing last year, 25 days on the market is still considered a seller's market.  Currently 3 homes are under contract and as of today, there are no homes for sale although there are 4 coming on the market soon.What does that mean to you?  If you are thinking of selling your home, it has a good chance of selling in a month.  Click on the image below to contact me so we can talk about what you'll need to do to get the most money for you...

Lakeshore at Ashburn Village Market Update February 2023 The second half of 2022 was quite slow at Lakeshore.  Three condos were listed with one expiring and two selling.In comparison, this year is starting out great with four homes coming on the market. One was listed and closed in February, 2 went under contract in February and one is still activeHow are the prices?  With very little on the market in general but specifically at Lakeshore, they are still very strong.  The one home that sold was a 2 bedroom,  2 bath, top floor unit that was listed for $350,000 that sold for $362,000.  The two condos that are under contract went in 3 and 4 days so I think they will sell for close to list price if not more.  I'll let you know next month!Interested in buying or selling a home at Lakeshore?...

As a seasoned Northern Virginia Realtor (hitting 2 decades), many of my mentees have come and gone in the real estate industry. One of the common questions many of these mentees have asked me "How do I get that listing or buyers and have instead pipeline of the business? I am pumped up and ready to sell like HGTV. "As we all know Rome was not built in one day and so will be your business. I was a rookie once and was the envy of my peers who were successful. It sounded so glamorous seeing their volume of business and sales. So, I understand these sentiments my rookie mentees have. It is tough to be empty and waiting on that call or sales to happen. Over the decades in the real estate industry, I have learned: We live in a world of glitter and glamor. And sales are like a Vegas buffet. We...

Bit of a throwback here from last week, but this is so important that you can't miss it! This is the Weekly Real Estate Market Report of April Week 2!Inflation was such a hot topic from last week, as the snowball continues. There were some new construction lately (check out Metro Walk at Moorefield Station and Hillside at Broadlands) which helps the inventory, but competition is still very tight.My tip for the buyers -- this is STILL an opportunity market. If you're thinking about buying that home, go for it! Go get those contingencies which you haven't been getting in the past two years! I repeat: If you're a buyer, THIS. IS. IT.If you're a home seller, go ahead and list that home! Take advantage of the inventory -- this is the best time to sell your home fast and with lots of good off...
