How an Agent Will Help a Hampton Roads Real Estate Buyer

A Hampton Roads real estate buyer needs a good agentIf you’re considering buying a new home, you might start feeling overwhelmed by the sheer number of details you have to keep track of as a Hampton Roads real estate buyer. There’s a simple answer to this feeling of overwhelm--hire a Hampton Roads real estate agent. Having an experienced agent in your corner will alleviate a lot of the stress and uncertainty of buying a home, especially if you’re a first-time buyer or are moving in from out of the area.

You’ll want to interview at least three possible agents to make sure you have an agent who’s a good fit. You should be able to trust your agent and communicate well. Once you’ve chosen an agent, you’ll want to sit down and start getting your financing in place. If you haven’t picked a lender already, your agent can suggest a few that can work with you and your needs. In fact, one of the biggest ancillary services you get from a real estate agent is trustworthy recommendations for everything from lenders to plumbers to lawn services.

An Experienced Hampton Roads Real Estate Agent Will Help Refine Your Criteria

As your financing falls into place, it’s time to hash out your “must haves” for your house. A Hampton Roads real estate buyer who doesn’t know the area well will be able to make use of the vast experience a local agent will have. The agent will help you prioritize the size of the house and yard, good public schools, shopping, and commute time to work.

Once you’ve ironed out what you really want and need, the agent will be able to comb listings and send you possibilities. When you’re ready to start touring the houses in person, your agent will come with you and be able to point out both strengths and possible issues with the house.

Choosing a house is not the end of the process. Your agent will negotiate a good price for you and also hammer out details like who pays closing costs and what repairs the seller agrees to do. In addition, the agent will get necessary disclosures and coordinate with inspectors and other professionals. Finally, your agent will walk you through all the paperwork necessary to close on a house.

The really cool thing about a buyer’s agent is that they get paid out of the closing costs, which the seller pays. So from the buyer’s point of view, all the services and expertise of their agent is free!

Please give the office a call so we can discuss your needs for moving to the Hampton Roads area.

Why You Need an Agent for Selling Hampton Roads Real Estate

Get a good agent for help selling Hampton Roads real estateThe process of selling Hampton Roads real estate is complex, which is why it’s always a good idea to hire an experienced real estate agent. When you start interviewing agents, you want to find someone that you trust and you can communicate with easily. It’s also important to find an agent who is creative and hard working. A house won’t sell itself!

The number one thing a good agent will do for a seller is to help them price the house correctly. It’s impossible to overstate how important this is. Overpriced houses simply sit on the market. The people who are looking for a house like yours will overlook it since it costs too much. The longer a house sits unsold on the market, the more people wonder what’s wrong with it. Often an overpriced house has to be deeply discounted before it’s purchased. A good agent will know the neighborhood well and be able to compare your house to other recently sold houses to come up with a good price for the market.

Your Hampton Roads Real Estate Agent Will Help You Prepare and Price Your House Right

Because a good agent knows the market very well, he or she will know how to prepare and market your home. Some home owners think they have to invest a lot of time and money upgrading the house to the latest trends. This isn’t true, and your agent will be able to tell you what’s really necessary and what you can skip. The agent will also know whether you need professional photography and be able to recommend a good photographer. Most buyers first meet a house online, so good photos are a must.

Speaking of the Internet, if you’re selling Hampton Roads real estate, your agent will need a good digital strategy to market your home effectively. It’s not enough to list it on the MLS. It should be listed on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and other social media platforms.

Finally, the seller’s agent will screen out people who don’t have their financing in place. Once you’ve got a serious buyer, your agent will negotiate with them or their agent to get the best deal for you. Really, your agent will be your guide through every step of the home selling process.

I’d be honored to help you sell your home. Give me a call so we can get started!

A Hampton Roads PCS Move Brings You to a Fun, Military-Friendly Area

Find fun with a Hampton Roads PCS move.Anyone planning a Hampton Roads PCS move will quickly discover a very military-friendly place with lots of interesting things to do, great schools, and fascinating history. There are a total of 16 bases in the area. Since Hampton Roads is one of the largest harbors in the world, it makes sense that the Navy has the most installations. However, each branch of the military is represented. Not only are there on-base housing options, there are also quite a lot of good off-base choices.

Once you’ve finished a Hampton Roads military move, you can start exploring the area. Busch Gardens Williamsburg is a favorite place. It has roller coasters, a kids’ area, animal exhibits, and 10 hamlets, each modeled after a different European city. Active duty military personnel can visit for free once a year. 

When You’re Settled After a Hampton Roads Military Move, Get to Know Local History

The Historic Triangle comprises three colonial settlements--Jamestown, Colonial Williamsburg, and Yorktown. Visitors to the area can check out carefully preserved and restored colonial-era buildings and experience living history with the historical re-enactors. There’s information about the daily lives of the colonists, the indigenous Native Americans, and the Revolutionary War.   

A Hampton Roads PCS move will bring you to an area that has lots of sporting events, too. Many of the local private and public universities have highly competitive sports teams, and it’s a lot of fun to go to a game. The Virginia Sports Hall of Fame and Museum is located in Portsmouth and is well worth a visit. There are also many great golf courses, including the championship courses at Kingsmill Resort in Williamsburg.  

If you love the beach, Hampton Roads has 29 miles of Atlantic Coast for you to visit and fall in love with. In addition to the sandy beaches, there are attractions like the boardwalk and its warm-weather activities in Virginia Beach.

Please give our office a call so we can walk you through the process of a PCS move to Hampton Roads. We’d love to help make your transition as easy as possible.
