Welcome to 2016. And, very soon we’ll be in 2017.

Time is flying and the differences between the real estate world of yesterday and today are night and day (hey, that rhymes!). By reading this column, you’re already partaking in the digital age of real estate.

There’s a lot more power that the internet brings to buying and selling a home. Not everyone wants to sift through hundreds of magazine pages to find a home. Not everyone wants to read the classified sections. And not everyone wants to drive around aimlessly looking for For Sale signs. Sure, all of the aforementioned can complement a strategic campaign… but by no means are they the backbone of buying/selling a residence in 2016.

So, when you’re ready to GET MORE out of your transaction, let’s get in touch via whatever modern or traditional mode of communication you prefer.

As of December 5, there are 192 detached homes, 40 townhouses and 245 apartments for sale throughout Arlington County. In total, 33 homes experienced a price reduction in the past week.

The bulk of the “post-Thanksgiving” 2016 celebratory days are over with. Until next year, Black Friday, Cyber Monday and #GivingTuesday (personally I think there should be a #GivingTuesday every week to support our awesome local nonprofits!).

To keep the spirit going strong, I have declared this a new day in Arlington County: Real Estate Wednesday. It’s the day where you can start thinking about (and maybe acting on) one of the most important purchases you’ll make. Yes, despite how alluring the newest 64-inch TV is every year… buying a home of your very own may be a much better investment in the long run.

The good thing about this Real Estate Wednesday is that there are no doorbusters and no fighting with neighbors over a Furby. It’s all about you… your budget… and what you want in the long run.

So, let’s roll and GET MORE out of your transaction!

As of November 28, there are 192 detached homes, 36 townhouses and 253 apartments for sale throughout Arlington County. In total, 13 homes experienced a price reduction in the past week.

A HAPPY THANKSGIVING to all of the “Just Reduced” readers out there. From my team to you and yours, I hope you enjoy your holiday. And I also hope you’re saving up a nice appetite for whatever meal(s) await!

One of my favorite parts about this time of year is the quality time that I get to spend with loved ones. Sure, my wife, kids and I travel throughout the VA/DC/MD area visiting our closest family and friends. But, we also love having so many folks over to our beautiful home in Arlington County.

It’s an honor to host those who have made such a positive impact on us.

If you’re looking for your very own home in Arlington County, I’m always here for you. In the meantime though, I hope your Thanksgiving 2016 makes for some amazing memories.

We’re well in to year two of “Just Reduced” and there’s one thing I’ve particularly enjoyed about having this column: The conversations we’re having.

Sure, there are always ways to make anything and everything better. But most importantly, we’ve started a nice dialogue on how to GET MORE out of a real estate transaction.

And, I’m not only hearing from prospective homebuyers wanting to save precious dough… I’m hearing from fellow agents in Arlington as well. In addition to the “Just Reduced” properties that I source on a weekly basis, you all have kept some stellar bargains on my radar. And many of these bargains have made it on our shortlist over the months.

So, on that note, let’s keep the dialogue going and… thank you!

As of November 14, there are 208 detached homes, 48 townhouses and 282 apartments for sale throughout Arlington County. In total, 38 homes experienced a price reduction in the past week.

Well, wasn’t that a fun election?

Fortunately we won’t have to do that for another four years. And fortunately, not every decision in life has to be a difficult one.

When it comes to deciding on a place to call home, you’re already off to a great start by zooming in on Arlington County. Our area has been a rock — in terms of housing — where other markets have been a bit shakier.

A big reason for the steadiness is our area’s low unemployment rates, comparatively high salaries and award-winning public school system, among other items. Oh, and of course we’re a stone’s throw from our nation’s capital, our culinary scene is magnificent and there is shopping galore.

So, when you’re ready to cast your vote on a place to live — whether it’s a single-family home, townhouse or apartment — I’m ready to help you GET MORE out of your purchase.

As of November 7, there are 210 detached homes, 44 townhouses and 287 apartments for sale throughout Arlington County. In total, 48 homes experienced a price reduction in the past week.

Oh hello there, November. It’s that time of year where all of the leaves are falling (if they haven’t already).

And, they’re not the only things that are falling – just take a look at this week’s list of “Just Reduced” properties. No time of the year is immune to a stellar bargain.

In addition to keeping an eye out for a good deal, it’s also the time to start thinking of all the dough you’ll be saving tax-wise by owning your own home. Mortgage deductions, closing cost deductions, property tax deductions – they are only the beginning!

Sure November can seem a little slow all around (particularly after a Thanksgiving meal). But, it’s never a bad time to get moving on the benefits of homeownership.

As of October 31, there are 214 detached homes, 51 townhouses and 298 apartments for sale throughout Arlington County. In total, 49 homes experienced a price reduction in the past week.

Monday is Halloween. And, Halloween is bound to be extra spooky this year with Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump masks flying off the shelves.

Buying a home can be scary, too. It’s one of the biggest purchases you’ll make during your lifetime, there are dozens of complicated-looking documents that you’ll need to sign, and there are several critical steps you’ll need to take to ensure you get the most bang for your buck.

When it comes to real estate, you shouldn’t be scared… you should be prepared. In the homebuying world, there is no better way than to be prepared than to have a trusted real estate agent by your side.

And whether it’s before, on, or after Halloween, I’m ready to help you GET MORE out of your transaction.

Hurricane Matthew caused catastrophic damage to our neighbors to the south. As we each do what we can to support their recovery efforts, it’s also a good time to remember to prepare our very own homes for the remainder of hurricane season (Nov. 30).

Virginia has had its share of hurricanes over the years – Isabel, Camille, Floyd, Fran, Irene, among others.

In our neck of the woods, it’s an especially important time of year to ensure your roof is protected/secured and that any obtrusive shrubbery or trees are kept trimmed. These items are not only important to address ahead of a hurricane, but ahead of any of the bad thunderstorms that are known to roll through our area.

While I’m here to help you find a home, I also want to ensure you keep your investment protected. Here’s to a hopefully calm remainder of the hurricane season!

As of October 9, there are 237 detached homes, 64 townhouses and 318 apartments for sale throughout Arlington County. In total, 49 homes experienced a price reduction in the past week.
