Buying a Home
Congratulations on your decision to buy a home! Whether you're searching for your first home, or are a seasoned real estate investor, buying a home is exciting! You're about to embark on a worthwhile venture into the real estate market, and I'm here to make your dreams come true!

Finding your dream home is easy when you enlist the help of an experienced real estate professional with a thorough knowledge of the area! Our advanced home search tools allow you to search homes by price, city, and neighborhood, and even specify your desired features and amenities. Save your favorite properties or receive alerts when new homes matching your criteria hit the market by creating a favorites account.
Start Searching Homes
If you’re only searching online for homes, you might be missing out! That’s because the Northern Virginia MLS prohibits certain pre-inventory homes from being marketed—which means there are some amazing properties out there that you aren’t able to see. So, how do you find these not-quite-listed homes? You ask a professional real estate team, like ours, to show them to you. Eager to get started? Contact us today!
I'll Help You Create a Real Estate Plan
An experienced real estate agent can save you time and money when buying a new home. I have comprehensive knowledge, resources, and tools that make it easier to find your dream home. I've also created a list of steps to help you in preparing for your home purchase. These are especially useful if you're a first-time homebuyer in the area.
Make a decision
Choosing to buy a home is no easy feat, but it is a worthwhile investment that can lay the foundation for wonderful memories and financial security. There are a number of solid financial reasons that make investing in a home worth it, such as tax benefits and building equity for financial strength. There is never a wrong time to buy the right home, as long as you find a good buy. I can help you with that.
Hire an agent
It is my job to make sure that everyone involved in the purchase of your home such as lenders, insurance inspectors, appraisers, and title agents, are coordinated and working towards your interests.
Don't become overwhelmed by the down payment! If you can afford to pay rent, you can almost certainly afford to buy a home. Mortgages do not have to be scary. I can provide you with recommendations for trusted lenders.
Find your home
Let me help you to be very specific about what you want. Compile a list of features that you absolutely must have in your home. Think hard about the things that matter most to you. Once you have come up with your list of home necessities, I will take it from there.
Make an offer
Once you find your home of choice which meets your requirements it is time to make an offer! With my knowledge of the market, I will position you to make the best offer and not spend a dime more of your money than necessary to get the home you want!
Unlike most major purchases, once you buy a home, you can not return it if something breaks or does not quite work like it is supposed to. That’s why home owner’s insurance and property inspections are so important.
A home owner’s insurance policy protects you in two ways: against loss or damage to the property itself, and in liability in case someone sustains an injury while on your property
The property inspection exposes possible issues a home may have so you know exactly what you are getting into before you sign your closing papers.
The most exciting part! You've secured a mortgage, signed the papers, and are well on your way to beginning your new life in the home of your dreams! As your real estate agent, I will help guide you through the final tasks and responsibilities that will make your new home yours.
