11 Reasons to List During the Holidays - 12:45 Team, Lee's Parke

11 Reasons
to List During the Holidays

1. People who look for a home during the Holidays are more serious buyers! 

2. Serious buyers have fewer houses to choose from during the Holidays and less competition means more money for you! 

3. Since the supply of listings will dramatically increase in January, there will be less demand for your particular home! Less demand means less money for you! 

4. Houses show better when decorated for the Holidays! 

5. Buyers are more emotional during the Holidays, so they are more likely to pay your price! 

6. Buyers have more time to look for a home during the Holidays than they do during a working week! 

7. Some people must buy before the end of the year for tax reasons! 

8. January is traditionally the month for employees to begin new jobs.  Since transferees cannot wait until Spring to buy, you must be on the market now to capture that market! 

9. You can still be on the market, but you have the option to restrict showings during the six or seven days during the Holidays! 

10. You can sell now for more money and we will provide for a delayed closing or extended occupancy until early next year! 

11. By selling now, you may have an opportunity to be a non-contingent buyer during the Spring, when many more houses are on the market for less money! This will allow you to sell high and buy low!

Cinderella's Ball - A Night To Remember

This past Saturday I had the privilege of taking my oldest daughter Kaylee to a Cinderella Ball (Father Daughter Dance) It was a local event with over 150 Fathers and their daughters attending.  It was a special time for us and others to spend this time with our girls and Kaylee loves dancing. 

During the event, I found out why this local church put the event on.  It was really neat to hear that the princesses and parents all volunteered their time for one main purpose.  To raise money for the poor children in DC who struggle to get their next meal.  The event was a success and raised over $4,500!

Our real estate team, the 12:45 Team have a big mission this year also and that's to give $20,000 back to the 3 charities we support.  We are really close to hitting this # and we could use your help.  We want to hear what organizations you support either with your time or money.  We want to help support them monetarily also.   Just email me back today to find out how we are willing to support organizations that you care deeply about.

Rent to Buy? Thinking of buying a home in the next five years? Consider renting with an option to purchase


Rent To Buy Options
 
Would you like to find your home, but you're not quite ready to buy? A lease with a right to purchase program may be a good fit for you!

This program allows you to 1) Find the house you want to live in now, 2) move in, and 3) if you’re ready within five years of the initial move-in, purchase the house.
Your monthly rent is not applied to the cost of the home, but the agreement ensures you have first dibs on the property should you decide to buy it within five years (Unless you’re in Texas, where it’s three). The right to purchase does not obligate you to buy the home, but if you do decide to buy, you can begin the process at any time in the five-year window. 

If you’re interested to learn more, this is how it works ...

Call Nate for more specifics to see if this program will work for you. Call 571-494-1245 or email NateJohnson@1245team.com

Step 1: You apply for the program and obtain approval 

There are many reasons people go the route of leasing with a right to purchase program: You may be repairing your credit, relocating, a first-time home buyer, or simply concerned about the current housing market. 

If you think this program may be a good fit for you, you can get the approval process going online and receive a decision within two days.

First, there are a few requirements:
  • At least 18 years of age
  • Annual income of at least $50,000
  • Stable employment
  • No history of eviction and no pending bankruptcy
  • Acceptable criminal history (Every person in the household will subject to a background check)
If you meet these requirements, you must provide proof of income, verify you can pay for two months’ rent and submit a $75 application fee. This information will be evaluated to reflect household rent-to-income and debt-to-income ratios, rental and housing history, and FICO scores. 

Step 2: You pick your home

If you’re approved, here comes the fun part of picking your home using the program’s online system. 

The home you pick needs to fall within the following criteria, and you’ll be working with a real estate agent to help you: 

  • It must be in a  community approved by the program (based on a variety of factors including high school attendance rates and any nearby features that may negatively impair a property’s value)
  • The listing price must be between $100,000 and $500,000
  • It must have a minimum of two bedrooms and lot of three acres or less
  • A single-family home or fee-simple townhome
  • A traditional or bank-owned property
For each home you view, you’ll be provided with some very helpful numbers: 1) What you’ll pay in rent for year one, year two, etc. and 2) What the home will cost to purchase in year one, year two, etc..

Once you’ve picked your home, our agent will submit your property for review. If your home is approved (You'll receive an answer within 4-6 hours) you’ll be provided with a schedule of rent and purchase prices for each lease term. NOTE: The rent increases by 3.75% each year, and the purchase price of the home increases by 3.5% each year. 

If you agree to the terms, it’s time to start packing! The program will pay for a complete home inspection, and you’ll need to provide the first month’s rent (pro-rated depending on move-in), and a two-month deposit. 

Step 3: The last step of the process is buying your home.  Once you've moved in, you can buy the home at any time. 

A few things to keep in mind: 
  • You are required to rent for a minimum of one year, but can move out after a one-year lease term without penalty
  • You may renew your lease for a total of five years but no more.
  • The total move-in process can take up to two months: This includes the time required for the program to buy the home on your behalf, and inspect the home
  • You must have an Experian credit score of 525 or above
  • The program does not provide you with a mortgage, and makes no guarantees that you will be able to obtain a mortgage
If you think this program is a good fit for you, call Nate to talk more about this program. We’ve helped hundreds of buyers find the right home, and we believe this is an excellent program to get you into the home you love. Call us at 571-494-1245 or email Natejohnson@1245team.com

Real Estate Staging: Top five tips and photos! from the 12:45 Team Premier Real Estate Agent VA, MD & DC

Staging
 
Did you know that homes with staging generally sell faster – and for more money – than homes without? That's why our real estate team provides free staging for each and every home we list (and historically sees lower days on the market than most competitors!)

The goal of real estate staging is to make buyers feel like they can live in your home – because while homey to you, your personal style may not always give them the same sense of comfort. A good stager wants to present a home that appeals to the majority. 
 
Staging, in fact, is very different than interior design. Interior designers and decorators are bringing a specific vision to life, while a stager provides an attractive, neutral palate.

Enter our 12:45 Team Stager, Christy! Christy stages all our listings, and here are some tips from her experience.

To find out the value of your home instantly click here

1.  The more natural light, the better!
We hear buyers comment on the light in a home (or lack of it) more than anything else. Removing the curtains bolted to the wall in this house not only made the space seem larger but brightened it up tremendously.


2. A little color goes a LONG way
Neutrals are a stager’s friend, but some color is necessary: The goal in this kitchen was to distract from the dated counter-tops and appliances. A bit of greenery, potted flowers and a propped-up cook book softened the space and added warmth. 



3. Sidetrack the imperfections
Every home has flaws, and buyers will often fixate on the blemishes. In this kitchen, staging props helped to downplay minor aesthetic stains and cracks on the countertop. 


4. Make an entrance
No matter how large or small your home, take special care to the first impression. When I walked into this condo to host an open house, the first thing I thought was “wow!!” The staging was simple but elegant, with just enough pop to make it homey but not so much to detract from the gorgeous hardwood floors and natural lighting.


5. If it needs it, add it!
This home, like many we sell, was already vacant and the bathrooms didn’t have shower rods. Adding a portable shower rod with a curtain and a few other touches made a world of difference.



From bland to beautiful, another bathroom also benefited from a few simple additions: A small picture, fresh towels on the rack and a pretty shower curtain (all in the same harmonious blue).   


Lastly, don’t forget to add the necessities. Make sure there’s soap in the bathroom, and a clean towel for drying for your hands. Trust me – buyers will be using your bathroom, so make sure it’s ready!



We love questions and feedback. Do you have a question about staging? Email Nate at NateJohnson@1245team.com or call 571-477-1245
