|Want to decrease your commute time? Why not live near the Vienna Metro Station? There are lots of opportunities depending on your particular needs. Not only are resale homes for sale, but there are new construction communities nearby that are not always listed in the multiple listing service. The Mosaic District has some new construction and there is a small community of large homes (4000+ square feet) near Mosby Woods Elementary School set to be built soon. Want to know where? Contact me! Remember, when you walk into a new community that is being built, the sales consultant represents the builder. You need your own representation (and it costs you nothing!). You can also search here for resale homes and live near the Vienna Metro Station. Happy house hunting!|

A home warranty is a service contract, normally for one year, which helps protect home owners against the cost of unexpected covered repairs or replacement on their major systems and appliances that break down due to normal wear and tear. Coverage is for systems and appliances in good working order at the start of the contract (although there are some companies now that cover items not in working order at the start of the contract).
Check your home warranty policy to see which of the following items are covered. Also find out if the policy covers the full replacement cost of an item.
- Electrical systems
- Water heater
- Heating ducts
- Water pump
- Garbage disposal
- Sump pumps
- Swimming pool (may be optional)

This past weekend, Wells Fargo gave away $20,000 to qualified buyers of homes in Washington, DC and Prince Georges County. As of this date, all the available funds have been reserved. It could be that after 60 days some of the money will be back up for grabs. Time will tell.
Did you know about this opportunity? Did your agent tell you? I have a client who I told about the program. I found out she was eligible and sent her to the Convention Center about 8:45 am on Friday and ahe left at 3:30 pm. She was well prepared and received a letter reserving the funds for 60 days. It wasn’t easy, but with perserverance, she received her letter. On the other hand, I heard about another agent’s client who said she had to work on Friday and could not attend the event on Saturday because she had to attend a funeral. Well we all have our priorities I guess!
Would you wait 7 hours to receive $20,000?
Be prepared the next time you hear about such an offer! If your agent didn’t tell you about this opportunity, perhaps you should interview another agent!
Wells Fargo is offering $20,000 in down payment assistance to qualified buyers in Washington DC and Prince Georges County, MD ONLY (sorry Virginia). Are you ready to buy? Then don’t miss this opportunity. The program, called CityLIFT is being launched at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in DC on October 5 and October 6 (a few days away). Admission is free. Parking is free at designated parking lots. Home buyers are asked to register in advance to speak with a financial professional who will tell you if you qualify for the program. If so, you can reserve funds for up to 60 days even if you have yet to find a property! What could be better!
However, you do have to bring along lots of paperwork for your appointment. (Hey, you have to do something to get the money!) And this $20,000 in down payment assistance does not have to be repaid, provided that you stay in the property for at least 5 years! Of course, it has to be your primary residence and you can’t own a property at the time you settle on the new property using the $20,000 downpayment assistance.
Check out these links for more information and you need an agent, so call me (703 679 8741).
Are you confused about renting vs. buying in the Washington DC area? Then, you are probably not alone. While there are many factors that determine whether renting vs. buying would be right for you, it’s pretty clear in this area. A recent article by Trulia looks at the most important factors that affect the cost of homeownership. Because of the low interest rates and the rising prices of home sales, the author concludes that “it is more affordable to buy than to rent in ALL of the 100 largest metros in the U.S.”
Read the article here. If you are a renter, let me know what keeps you renting (vs. buying) in this real estate market. I’d love to hear your thoughts.
As the rent vs. buy debate continues, this Wall Street Journal article is an absolute must read. The article compares the average rent and mortgage rates of 27 metro areas with interactive charts to get a full understanding of major U.S. markets. See who’s in the green and in the red for housing affordability (and for exactly how much).
