Thinking about buying?

If you are thinking about buying a home, there are many considerations. Here are a few..

How long do you plan to be in the home? Are you going to grow out of it quickly, get transferred, change jobs or take on family members? The average homeowner today stays in their current home for about 9 years. Usually enough time to realize appreciation and write-offs to be considered a sound decision. You should commit to staying 5 years. If you do, in most markets you should realize a profit. So be ready to put down some roots.

Looking for Home Bargains? Look to Smaller Towns that are Within an Acceptable Commute to Work

One of the most common challenges among those looking for properties in the Metro DC and Baltimore areas is price. For many, homeownership can seem like an unattainable dream as they consider living in the Metro DC area. With some of the highest prices-per-square-foot in the nation, the task of finding a great home is daunting. It can force families to rent when they want to buy or to settle for a home that is inadequate for their needs. However, a better solution could be very simple!

Working with a realtor agent

It's always nice to have an experienced realtor on your team for helping you get into your new home, I have partnered up with a few of them and have the ability to give you more options when finding your new home. If your an investor looking to fix and flip a home using an agent to buy a home might not be the best route. That's why I have options for you to get a better rate on a home that might need some work. Which you can turn for a profit. Hope you can use me for either options!

Skin in the game

Most hard money lenders require you to have some skin in the game, meaning you have some experience in rehabbing. Even though it's an asset based loan it's sometimes difficult to get 100% financing. Your better if you have some money to put down at the closing table. This will help you dramatically with funds cause it shows that you have more of a desire to follow through and have am incentive your not going to walk away from the deal. The more you have the better! Good luck!
