The last three years have been a great seller's market here in Richmond, VA and probably most of the country.  Inventory has been very low, and we have seen houses swept off of the market in less than a day with multiple offers increasing the contract price over list price.  The market has shifted slightly in Richmond, VA, but there are still areas where the competitiion is fierce.  As a buyer, how do I win the house of my dreams in one of these areas that continually has multiple offers?  The first thing you want to do is get yourself an experienced Realtor.  Don't just go with your sister's friend because she is new in the business and needs a sale.  The next thing you will need to do is get yourself a solid local lender.  Your Realtor should have a list of lenders and contact informa...

If you are a first time home buyer in Richmond, VA you should read this blog post.  I am going to break down the home buying process for Richmond real estate.  The first thing you will want to do before anything is get pre-qualified, preferably by a local lender.  Why a local lender?  They are easier to get in contact with when you need them.  They will also use local appraisers that are familiar with the real estate market in Richmond. As your local Richmond realtor, I can give you referrals to a few different lenders, but you can use any lender.  There are a few reasons you want to get pre-qualified.  You don't want to sell yourself short and not get everything you want in a home.  You also don't want to be looking at homes that may be above your budget.  Getting pre-qualified gives y...

The Richmond Real Estate Market is on fire!  The interest rates are still very low, which means a lot of first time home buyers are thinking about buying a home.  For the first time home buyer, the question is,"how much money do I need to have to buy a home?"  That's a great question, and it all depends.  When our parents were purchasing a home, they probably had to have 20% of the purchase price of the home to put down as a deposit.  This is no longer the case, but a lot of people still think you have to have 20% down.  There are several different loan products out there.  There are VHDA loans that are 0% down payment.  You have to qualify with your credit, and there is an income requirement.  If you make too much money, you may not qualify.  There are FHA loans that require a 3.5% dow...

Buying your first home can be a stressful experience.  As a first time home buyer,  you want to make sure to do some research before you jump in head first.  We have compiled a list of things to avoid when you are a first time home buyer.  1.  Thinking you won’t qualify for a home loan.  Many potential first time home buyers don’t even try to purchase a home because they think they won’t qualify.  There are a lot of first time home buyer loans that are designed specifically for the first time home buyer.  If you are interested in purchasing a home, check with a few local lenders to see if you qualify.  The worst they can say is no.  2.  Not getting pre-qualified before you start searching for a home.   First time home buyer pre-qualificationThe last thing you want to, as a first time ho...

The neighborhoods of Northside in Richmond include northern Richmond and some parts of Henrico.  These neighborhoods include Bellevue, Barton Heights, Ginter Park, Chestnut Hill Plateau, Rosedale, Washington Park, Highland Park, Sherwood Park, Hermitage Rd, Brooklyn Park, Montrose, and many more.  The neighborhood of Northside Richmond began in the late 1800's and can be credited to philanthropist Lewis Ginter and planned by Frederick Law Olmstead Sr. The intent was to have streetcar transportation for businessmen to retreat from the city to the suburbs.  The project was not fully realized because of the depression, and most of the houses were constructed from the 1920's to the 1940's.  There has been a revitalization in Northside over the few years, and the Northside is now one of the ...

If you are a first time home buyer, and you are thinking about buying your first home, you want to research the different loan options available to you.  Just because you are a first time home buyer, that doesn't necessarily mean that a first time home buyer loan is your best option.  There are several factors that you want to consider when applying for a loan as a first time home buyer.  A lot of first time home buyer's don't have the money for a down payment on a loan.  There are a few options with little to no down payment.  There is your standard first time home buyer loan or FHA loan.  The standard FHA loan requires a down payment of 3.5% of the purchase price of your new home.  There is also a first time home buyer renovation loan or FHA 203k loan.  You would still need to put dow...

2018: A Year in Review for Fan District Real Estate As we close out another year, I always like to take a look back in the rear view mirror to see how things wrapped up ... and how they compared to previous years. While real estate changes each year (heck sometimes it feels like weekly), it's always critical to keep an eye on trends and where the market is heading.   THE SHORT VERSIONThe Fan District real estate market continued to be strong in 2018.  Another year that we were faced with limited inventory and a strong demand from buyers, which worked towards most sellers advantage.  There were less sales in 2018, but that was driven by inventory, not demand.    YEAR OVER YEAR COMPARISON WHAT YOU DON'T SEE IN THE FIGURES ABOVEYes, to most buyers and sellers final purchase price is the mo...
