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...

A few years ago when my wife and I were looking for a larger home one of the communities I had my eye on was Kings Charter in Mechanicsville, Virginia.

Here are a few things my clients are enjoying in their new home that I've also published on my  site:  Kings Charter is a planned unit development that straddles the boundaries of Ashland, Virginia and Mechanicsville, Virginia both within the boundaries of Hanover County, Virginia and a suburb of Richmond, Virginia.

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...

Fannie Mae just announced another change in qualification guidelines. This change includes qualification for 5-Yr. ARMs at the note rate plus 2.0% or fully indexed rate, whichever is higher.  Plus, starting June 1, lenders will have to run a second credit report right before closing.  Add to other recent changes which include verification of income on FHA Streamline Refis and lenders pouring through tax returns with magnifying glasses to find something wrong.    Bottom line is that not only do we need to verify the income of every applicant, it will be much harder to qualify them when we do. Today you can't afford not to be an expert in tax returns.  How can you not go into battle with an underwriter without knowledge on your side?  Keep in mind that many underwriters are not well train...

How I sold a house using Skype (tm) My story about how I used Skype with clients that live 14 hours away.  Mr. & Mrs. New Home Buyer closed on their new home and the wife saw it (live) for the first time 15 minutes before closing.  Yes, they are still married and she loves the house!  I consider myself to be a pretty good computer nerd, but I never had the need to use Skype until I met Mr.  & Mrs. New Home Buyer.  Mr. & Mrs. New Home Buyer lived out west, they had sold their home and wanted to move somewhere with definite seasons and wanted to move in 30 days.  Mr. & Mrs. New Home Buyer decided Virginia was where they wanted to move.  They found my team online and I was thrilled.   After a couple of conversations, customized MLS search set up, recommendations marked, Mr. Buyer, Mrs. Buy...
