THB - Buyer's guide

Our commitment to you

We know you have choices when it comes to buying your new home and we do not take this commitment lightly. We will consistently go above and beyond to exceed your expectations throughout your real estate transaction. We are grateful for the opportunity to serve you.

Step
1

Understanding your purchasing power

Most buyer's will qualify for more than they are comfortable spending. It is critical that your very first step in the home buying process is a pre-approval with a good quality, local lender.

Step
2

The Home Search

Once we have established your comfort zone for your purchase, as well as identified your key criteria, we will set up a search for you directly from the MLS to ensure that you are the first to know about new listings! We will also harness the power of our connections with other local Realtors and networks to possibly identify homes not yet listed that may meet your criteria. We will set up your home tours at mutually agreeable dates and times, taking into account the seller's schedule as well.

Step
3

Writing the offer

This is the tough part... how much to offer? You want to get the best deal possible, but not offend the seller or lose your dream home. We will complete a thorough analysis of the market and provide you with quality recommendations not just on offer price, bt on contingencies to include, inspections, and more.

Step
4

Inspections & contingencies

Congratulations, your offer has been accepted! Virginia is a "buyer beware" state, meaning it is up to you to do your due diligence. We will guide you through the inspection process, set up inspections for you, negotiate repairs as needed, and work through the contingency periods to ensure that you are protected in your purchase.

Step
5

Moving day

Most buyer's will qualify for more than they are comfortable spending. It is critical that your very first step in the home buying process is a pre-approval with a good quality, local lender.

Happy customers wanted to share some of their experience

I had been thinking about buying a place for over a year and felt overwhelmed by the process, the lingo, and just where to start. I wanted to make an investment and start earning equity in a home of my own, but I didn’t want to be pushed into a decision. During this time, it felt like everything was above my budget or that I couldn’t afford the down payment and upfront fees that come with buying a home. After over a year of searching, and a principal who wanted to give his teachers resources about housing in Loudoun County, I was finally able to meet Ariana and Angie! They answered all of my questions and were able to make me feel comfortable and confident in my home buying decision. Ariana & Angie were quick to respond to texts, emails, calls, and everything else in between. They have a wealth of contacts within Loudoun County and were able to make the process easy and seamless. I know if it weren’t for the Teacher Home Benefits program and all of the opportunities it provided, I would still be searching for the perfect starter home for me and my adorable puppy.

We really enjoyed working with Ariana & Angie throughout our home buying process! We knew we were in good hands from the very beginning.Their knowledge of the local market is unparalleled. When a property came up that they knew we would love, but we were out of state at the time, they face-timed us to walk the property and helped us submit a competitive long-distance offer so we wouldn’t miss out! And the rest is history!Ariana & Angie went above and beyond to make sure we didn’t miss out on our dream home. We would highly recommend them to all of our friends; you will be so glad you chose Ariana & Angie!
