As a Buyer's Agent, I work primarily with first-time homebuyers, buyers that are relocating, buyers that need a larger home, and buyers that are downsizing. I also work with consumers and investors interested in foreclosures and bank-owned properties.
If you are relocating to the area, and have a home to sell, I can also help you find a top agent to sell your current home.. because of Weichert's U.S.-wide Relocation Network.
I have extensive experience working with buyers with a solid knowledge of the different neighborhoods......since I have lived in the Washington, DC Metropolitan area for the past 50+ years. My neighborhood knowledge has allowed me to find my buyers the home of their dreams--At the best price and in the neighborhood of their choice!
The Government supports home ownership.. and NOW IS THE TIME TO BUY -- with interest rates remaining low.. AND, because it is a buyer's market, there are more homes to choose from......a 250%+ rise in active listings. Never before have there been more homes to choose from in this buyer's market!
AND, because of the changed market, I have been 100% SUCCESSFUL in getting sellers to pay my buyer's closing costs. And, with my knowledge in the home inspection field, I've been successful in getting additional $$$. On a sale just last week, I got my buyers all of their closing costs paid for, all repairs made after the home inspection, and an additional seller's credit to be applied towards pre-paying homeowner's association dues!
If you are a first-time Maryland homebuyer,,, The Montgomery County Housing Opportunities Commission (HOC) Loan Program can give you more buying power because of their 4.4% interest step loan program. I can provide you with additional information on this great program along with other first-time homebuyer loan programs available! I have turned numerous renters into happy homeowners. Please visit my website at www.christinesellsmaryland.com for more information on this program under "Tired of Renting"!
I chose to work with Weichert, Realtors because of their state-of-the-art technologies and services to best suit my buyer's needs. Weichert Gold Services also affords my buyers numerous relocation tools and discounts.
I also provide all of my buyers with a HomeSure Services Home Warranty, giving my buyers security and protection in purchasing their new home! I also give all of my buyers a credit of $500 at closing to help with closing costs!
As soon as you contact me, I will start emailing you real-time active listings in your preferred areas! My success in this business can be attributed to numerous satisfied buyers and I hope I can add you to my list!
