Buying a Home in Norfolk, Virginia?

For Buyers: Now that you have made the decision to purchase a Norfolk home, you need to know how much a lender is willing to loan you. There are two methods for this task. Many lenders offer a quick prequalification but considering this method is a preliminary estimate based on information you verbally provide your lender and documentation is not validated it can only be considered an estimated figure. Your monthly payment based on this type of qualification may be significantly different once all documentation is reviewed.

A preapproval is a written commitment from your lender having reviewed your income, credit, documentation and so on. This means you are approved for the loan reliant on certain conditions, updated documents, property appraisal and so forth. The pre-approval document indicates to Virginia home sellers that you are a serious Virginia home buyer!

Selling a Home in Norfolk, Virginia?

For Sellers: You've decided to sell your Norfolk home, so what is next? Pricing your home is obviously a key part of the home selling process. A home that is under-priced needlessly costs the client potential return. An over-priced home can remain on the market for an extended amount of time, forcing the seller to either wait out a long listing period or have to adjust down the asking price. Getting the pricing right from the start avoids these potential pitfalls. To get us started I will prepare for you what is called a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) of your house. This compares your home to others in the area that are either currently listed, under contract, or have recently sold.

Other things that can factor into the CMA are supply and demand, craftsmanship, and the amenities of your home. The CMA will help us to determine the fair market value. What is fair market value, you may ask? In short, fair market value is the highest price that an informed buyer will pay for your home. Establishing fair market value will enable us to sit down and discuss in detail the pricing of your home. I want to help you settle on a price that you feel is competitive and consistent with the current market for your Norfolk real estate or real estate in surrounding areas. I understand that all of this can be a bit overwhelming, so feel free to call or e-mail me at any time.
