First Time Home Buyers
Purchasing a home for the first time can be an intimidating prospect, but working with the right real estate agent will make the process much less overwhelming (and perhaps even pleasant!).
The first time you sit down with a Merritt Team agent, we'll walk you through our first time home buyer packet. We'll talk about getting pre-approved for a mortgage, narrowing down the property search, and ultimately finding the house that will become your home.
We will also review what goes into writing an offer on a house, and what you can expect when the time comes to make a bid. We then go over all costs that are or could be associated with home buying. We explain the types of inspection you can expect, the costs of those inspections, and what would happen if an inspection were to reveal a problem.
Our team will also explain our role in negotiations and in the closing process. Our goal is to arm you with infomation and protect you from unnecessary hassles on your house hunting journey.
Move Up Buyers
You're an experienced homeowner who is ready to make your next move in the Northern VA area, and The Merritt Team real estate agents are ready to serve. We'll take you through a brief consultation to review the process and update you on what's new before we officially begin the search for your new home.
Our agents work with investors on the search for an income property. Our team will provide a market analysis for any property that may be a good fit, including a cost sheet outlining your potential profit.
Heroes + First Responders
The Merritt Team is proud to offer our support to those in the military and first responders. We pay the cost of home inspections for all of our military and first responder clients. We also have an Agent Credit Incentive available for covering certain closing costs not paid by the seller.
