Getting Your Offer Accepted in Richmond VA Real Estate Market
Recently Zillow named Richmond, Virginia as one of the hottest housing markets for 2016. This is due to the fact that Richmond is enjoying a low unemployment rate and is seeing strong income growth. Hey, we will take it! But, what does this mean for you as a buyer looking to purchase a home in RVA? When a market is hot and inventory is low, competition is high. You MUST make your offer stand out from the crowd. How do you go about getting your offer accepted in Richmond VA real estate market? Let's examine:
Make a Clean Offer
If you find yourself in a multiple bid situation for your dream home, now is not the time to complicate things. Make sure you, with the assistance of your Richmond VA Realtor, make a clean offer. This can mean anything from not using a first right of refusal (which means you want to buy the home but only once you sell your current property) to not asking for the sellers prized rug to convey. This is not the time to get greedy. You want to make your offer as simple as possible. Here are some other do's and don't's"
Do: Ask for a home warranty if you want one
Don't: Ask for the seller to pay for it.
Do: Write in the offer any special instructions the seller indicated in the listing. (Ex: If you know the fireplace is to convey in as-is condition, go ahead and write that you agree in the initial offer.)
Don't: Add special instructions of your own.
Do: Provide a solid earnest money deposit (EMD)
Don't: Ask for closing costs

Pros and Cons of Relocation Packages - Richmond VA Real Estate
Pros and Cons of Relocation Packages - Richmond VA Real Estate
You just landed that big promotion and have been offered a SWEET relocation package from your employer, but now what? Relocationdeals can be amazing for the recipient. Take it from me as my husband and I have moved COUNTLESS times on the dime of the company. Let's take a look at the pros and cons of relocation packages - Richmond VA real estate.
PROS on a Relocation Package
The biggest benefit of a relocation package, in my opinion, is that many packages, not all, will pay for the commission of your Richmond VA real estate agent. If you have a $300,000 house to sell, that is an $18,000 savings right there! And, many packages will also cover closing costs on the purchase of your new home, allowing you another $9,000 of savings on a $400,000 price tag. Who wouldn't want to save all this money?!
Another pro is many relocation packages will also pay for movers, yet ANOTHER big savings. When my husband and I had moved to a different state the company paid $10,000 or more to move our belongings. Score! In addition, some deals will even pay for temporary housing while you hunt for that home sweet home. WOW!
Another pro of a relocation package is you will be assigned a specialist to assist you every step of the way so you shouldn't be left in the dark if you get someone on-point.
Cons of a Relocation Package
With all these savings there certainly couldn't be a downside, right? Well, it depends on the situation. The biggest drawback I see is many relocation companies will only let you work with one of their "approved" Realtors. While a dime a dozen, we have approximately 5000 Richmond VA real estate agents...
