Today I am sharing the first of the new year! Sometimes, the best-selling feature of a home just needs a little love so that it can really shine on the market.

I loved working on this previously sold home to prepare it to go on the market and it brought TOP dollar for my seller clients! If you're ready to work with an agent who doesn't just click some photos of your house and plop a 'For Sale' sign on your lawn, it's time for a real strategy.

Email me at [email protected] so we can build a true strategy for your 2024 sale.

Attention Northern Virginia Homeowners! Thinking about selling your home this spring market? Here's a sneak peek at what to expect.

Interest rates are now predicted to drop, leading to more buyers flooding the market. With many homebuyers locked in at historically low rates, inventory is not predicted to boom, however. This has the potential to lead to major bidding wars.

If you're considering selling your home this Spring, let's get prepared NOW so you can be completely ready with your game plan to earn top dollar. Email me at [email protected] so we can build your home selling strategy together.

It might be cold outside, but real estate is always a hot topic for me! Here are the top three things you need to know if you want to buy a home in NoVa this year:

1. Inventory is low and it's likely going to stay low. Why? Many are locked in at historically low-interest rates. While rates are predicted to drop a bit, it's unlikely we will see those historic lows again, leading many potential sellers to stay where they're at.
2. When rates DO drop, plan for competition. Looking for a way to beat the flood of buyers? Buy now and refinance when rates drop. You'll get your home at a lower price and still get the full advantage of that lower rate.
3. The burbs have grown! If you're looking for a home-buying opportunity, it may be advantageous to consider neighborhoods outside your original plan. Why? You may get your 'dream house' with a dream price instead of a fight with that low inventory we're seeing.

Whether you're a first-time homebuyer, buying your dream home, retiring and looking to downsize, or any home-buying experience in between, email me at [email protected] today so we can work together to build a. strategy for 2024 and your home buying goals.

New year, new goals. I thought I'd share a few real estate based goals to add to your list as we begin 2024 together.

1. Make a plan toward homeownership. Boost your credit as much as you can, save for a downpayment, and find a lender and Realtor you trust to help you navigate the realities of the market.
2. Work toward a rental property, a land investment, or another real estate investment opportunity.
3. Get your home ready to sell! Whether it's minimizing your belongings, making some repairs that will have a good return on your investment, or reaching out to a Realtor to learn what it really will take to sell your home, build a plan for the 'For Sale' sign.

No matter what your real estate goals are, I'm here to help you achieve them this year. If you're in the Northern Virginia area and ready to make 2024 your year, contact me so we can find a time to discuss a game plan. Email me [email protected] today so we can get started.

If you're looking for a home in NoVa, it's no secret that inventory is low. There are so many ways you can STILL become a homeowner!

1. Sometimes, the best home is just outside the zipcode you THINK you have to be in. Expanding your search may be the key.
2. Consider the items on your 'must have' list that may be able to be added or adjusted to a home a little down the line easily like a screened-in porch or hardwood flooring.
3. Don't get desperate, but don't wait for a miracle. Waiting is worth it for the right home, but sometimes the right home is hiding under some potential updates.

If you're ready to work with a Realtor in 2024 with the experience, understanding of the local market, and real estate knowledge to help you navigate this ever-changing real estate world, it's time to email me at [email protected] so we can find you home.

It's hard to believe but we're cruising into 2024 in a matter of DAYS. If you're looking ahead to the new year with buying or selling a home in mind, there's a lot of information out there to decipher. Here are three things I want you to know.

1. There are fewer homes on the market. With many locked in at a historically low interest rate, the housing market on a national scale and here in Northern Virginia is simply seeing less homes become available.
2. Interest rates will drop...and look out when they do. Many are waiting on the sidelines to "time the market" but they'll all be entering at the same time, leading to a potential frenzy.
3. We are not going to see another 2008. If you're hoping for a "housing market crash," don't expect history to repeat itself this time.

There is never a "perfect time" to buy or sell a home. There is, however, a way to navigate ANY market with strategy and tactics for ultimate success. Sometimes it's not about when you sell but who you sell with. Email me at [email protected] today so we can work together on strategizing your ultimate real estate success in 2024.

What is 'Market Value' anyway?

No, it's not what Zillow or Realtor.com say your house is worth. Market value refers to the price your home is truly worth and would fairly sell for. If your Realtor says a house you're looking at buying has a price they're hoping to sell for that is above or below market value, it usually means the offer you should give should reflect that. In fact, houses that are listed above market value are often the ones sitting around with a 'For Sale' sign on their lawn for longer than the ones around it. Conversely, the ones that you don't even get a chance to see?? Those are usually listed under market value.

Real estate can sometimes feel like learning a new language. There are so many terms you'll hear in the process of buying a home that gets talked about in passing, but first-time homebuyers simply might not know what they even mean. Lucky for you, I am completely fluent in real estate!

Thought I would share a little bit of holiday-themed to get you through the most wonderful time of the year! ❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️

12/15/2023

Looking back this Friday to just a few Sundays ago when I had the BEST time getting to enjoy my incredible clients and friends' company at my annual holiday party at Red's Table in Reston! It's always so wonderful to get to chat and catch up with you all! How lucky am I to have the BEST clients out there?! Happy Holidays!!

A few of you have been asking me what home trends I predict seeing more of in 2024. Well, here is my list -- what would you add in?!

🏡 Smart Houses: Even smarter homes with new and emerging technologies. Hello, Alexa!

🏡 Sustainable living: Eco-friendly choices are at the forefront in 2024 -- think: sustainable materials, energy-efficient appliances, and design elements that reduce your carbon footprint.

🏡 Bold colors and patterns: Make a statement with vibrant hues and eye-catching patterns -- it's time to be BOLD and daring again with color!

🏡 Wellness spaces: At this point, most of us all have a home office. But, don't forget about your wellness, too! Transform your home into a sanctuary for well-being. Incorporate features like meditation corners, wellness nooks, and spa-inspired bathrooms to promote relaxation and self-care.

What would you add to the list? As a renovator, Realtor, and building materials expert, I am always happy to talk with you more about the latest in home design, trends, and real estate. In fact, I LOVE talking all about this subject. Have a great rest of your day!

12/12/2023

Have you heard this real estate myth? "Don't sell your house until the spring. It's never a good idea to sell in the winter." There are two major reasons that can often be the worst advice:

1. During the holiday season, almost everyone looking for a home is a serious buyer. You can enjoy less looky-lous and more bang-for-your-buck when it comes to the people walking through the door. Your home has the potential to sell faster and with less haggling in the winter.

2. You have less competition. The simple fact is this: There are fewer homes on the market when the weather gets colder. That means there are fewer opportunities for buyers (who often NEED to move if they're looking now!) to get picky. They're more likely to see the potential of your home rather than what it's lacking.

You don't need a weather app to dictate when you sell your home. You need a real estate professional.

If you have questions about what it really takes to sell your home for top dollar in this ever-changing real estate market, it's time we figure out a time to chat. Message me here or email me at [email protected] today.

Staying in your home and deciding to freshen it up soon? Don't make this mistake when it comes to renovating a home!

Falling into the Pinterest-perfect can be so fun, but just be cautious! Why is that? While it's tempting to recreate those flawless images, remember that your home should reflect YOU, not just the latest trends or what you see online.

Remember: a house needs to be a HOME. Avoid cookie-cutter designs; infuse your personal style for a home that's uniquely yours. Let's create a space that tells your story!

Whenever you want to do a renovation, also remember to think about your ROI and if you plan to sell in the future. While you may like one aspect of a reno, it could be a turn-off to potential buyers down the road.

Even if not selling now, know I'm always here to bounce home renovation ideas around with you. Before my decades-long career in real estate, I was in the building materials industry...so to put it lightly, I know construction, renovations, and materials.

My messages are open 24/7 for your questions or in my inbox at [email protected]. I'd love to hear from you!

Happy Black Friday - when did this day become such a big thing!? Well, I guess I will jump on the train.

As your local Northern Virginia Realtor, I am sharing 6 tips on finding deals that will add that extra sparkle to your nest without breaking the bank.

Here are my top tips >>

1. Light up your space! Black Friday is the perfect time to snag those modern light fixtures or trendy lamps you've been eyeing. Adding the right lighting not only brightens up your space but also sets the mood for cozy evenings.

2. Get cozy! Dive into Black Friday furniture sales to upgrade your living spaces. Whether it's a plush sofa, a chic coffee table, or some statement decor pieces, a little change can make a big difference. Make your home a haven of comfort and style!

3. Paint goes a long way! Check out those Black Friday deals on quality paint and unleash your creativity. Whether you go for a bold accent wall or a soothing neutral palette, a new color can breathe life into any room.

4. Smart home, happy home! Black Friday often brings fantastic deals on smart thermostats, security systems, and other home automation gadgets. Stay connected and in control!

5. Outdoor heaven! Black Friday is an excellent time to find deals on patio furniture, outdoor lighting, and cozy accessories. Create an outdoor retreat that's perfect for entertaining or simply unwinding after a long day.

6. DIY! Small DIY projects can add a personal touch to your home without breaking the bank. From a stylish accent wall to a custom-built bookshelf, let your creativity shine!

7. Energy-Efficient! Consider upgrading to energy-efficient appliances and fixtures. Look for Black Friday sales on ENERGY STAR-rated products to save money on utilities in the long run while reducing your carbon footprint.

Remember, Black Friday isn't just for buying huge TVs and fashion—it's a golden opportunity to enhance the heart of your home.
