Are you currently thinking about selling your home? If you are unsure if you have enough equity in your home to consider selling it you can easily find out the value of your home. Simply fill out the form on my website: http://www.claudiasnelson.com/sell/

Buyers are out in force trying to take advantage of low interest rates, since interest rates have increased over the past couple of weeks most buyers have a sense of urgency of finding the home of their dreams and lock in with still considerably low interest rates, before they continue going up further.

Dale City VA - Is the Foreclosure Crisis behind us?

Claudia S. Nelson Realtor with Keller Williams Realty, Woodbridge VA


According to the national media the foreclosure crisis is behind us and prices are on the rise. That is also true for the Woodbridge area Real Estate Market. 

In the graphic you can clearly see that there are hardly any more distressed sales. Don't get me wrong there are still homeowners that are upside down on their equity but over all there are way more REGULAR Sales compared to distressed sales. 

This is a great sign for the local housing market and as you can see it has been like this for quite some time now. With the come back of Regular Sales and a lower inventory of homes for sale we have also seen prices go up in the Woodbridge area. This is a great sign for everyone that is thinking about selling their home. If you are currently thinking of selling your home you should speak with a local Real Estate Agent. You can contact me anytime at 571-285-4319 or http://www.claudiasnelson.com/sell/

Get your home ready to sell


Are you currently considering selling your home? If you are thinking about selling your home I have some inexpensive tips for you. Of course you could go all out and completely upgrade your kitchen and all your bathrooms, but you should have been doing that a long time ago while you were living in the home and for you to enjoy. Don't get me wrong your Real Estate Agent would love it if you go all out, but it really isn't necessary. 

Here are a few easy and inexpensive tips to getting your home ready:

Paint your Home
Painting your home before you put it on the market is on of the cheapest ways to get the highest possible price for your property. Use soft neutral colors. 

2.   Reglaze Bathtub and SinkIf you have a dated bathroom, don’t worry you don’t have to invest in a  top to bottom remodel project, but you should consider reglazing. This is a very inexpensive way of making your bathroom look great.

3.    Curb Appeal 
First impressions make a huge difference. 
- Tim your shrubs
- Cut your grass
- Place potted flowers at the door
- Paint Front Door
- Replace doorknobs, mailbox and house numbers if needed

4.   Update Light FixturesUpdate old light fixtures throughout the house. 

5.    Shampoo CarpetsClean carpets can make a world of a difference when it comes to selling your home.

Every home and every situation is different and in some circumstances you might get more return for certain upgrades compared to other upgrades. You should consult your local Real Estate Agent, have them come out to assess your home and your situation. If you are thinking of selling your Woodbridge area home give me a call for a free consultation. I can help you best decide what steps to take to making sure you get the most money in the quickest possible time for your home.

Are you making your Landlord rich?

www.SoldinNova.com 571-285-4319
Claudia S. Nelson Realtor with Keller Williams Realty, Woodbridge VA


Are you currently Renting? 

If so you should pay close attention.

The other day I spoke with an investor who informed me that they are considering selling one of their properties. Their tenant moved out after living in the home for 15 years. The investor told me they rented the home for 15 years to the same tenant and now the tenant has decided to move, but while the tenant was living there he paid OFF the home for the landlord. The landlord owns the home free and clear thanks to the rental payments the tenant made!

Don't get me wrong there are definitely instances where renting is the way to go, but don't waste your money and make your landlord rich. If you are planing on staying somewhere for more then one or two years you should consider buying. There are so many advantages of being your own landlord.

When I first came to the US I rented a one bedroom condo in Washington DC. Yes I loved living in the City and yes I had a great time in my one bedroom rental, but it wasn't mine. I paid rent and made my landlord rich. Granted I really liked my landlord, she was great, but that's not the point.

If you own your home you are investing in your future, you are accumulating wealth versus making your landlord rich. Also there are tax benefits of owning your own home. If you have pets it is so much easier. I just got back from playing with my friends dog. He is the biggest love bug, but also a bit rough around the edges and wild and she is now investing in a carpet cleaner. She owns her house, so she doesn't have to worry about it but if she was renting that would be a completely different story, many landlords have issues with pets.

Yes if you own your home you are responsible for the upkeep and if something breaks you can't just call the landlord to fixing it. But there are ways to protect yourself, first and for most make sure you always have your home covered with a Home Warranty. The home warranty covers appliances,AC, Furnace and so forth for a service fee. A home warranty is a must investment!

In my book the benefits of home ownership definitely outweighs the negative, but most important in many cases it is cheaper to make a mortgage payment then to pay rent for the same home! Speak to a local Real Estate Agent to get the details and also speak with a lender to learn about what loan programs are available for you. There are many great loan programs that you can use to purchase your first home.

Stop renting. Stop making your Landlord rich. Invest in your future and start building wealth by becoming your own landlord.
