In the Know…DC Beer Tasting!

IMG_1180Wow! Who knew beer tasting in DC could be such a scene?

If you like beer and have not spent a Saturday afternoon tasting some of DC’s finest, you’re missing out!

Not only is the beer excellent, but there are food trucks, live music, and cute dogs available for adoption. Perfect for a fall day!

Some recommendations: Chocolate City Beer (Brookland), DC Brau (Woodridge), and Three Stars Brewing (Takoma/Brightwood).

Renovation Realtor(R): Deals for the $350k-$450k Buyer

Looking for a home in the $350k-$450k range in DC? Have you considered renovating a fixer upper? Today you can buy and renovate all in one loan.

Take a look at these potential deals in your price range.

Here’s how it would work. Say you bought a house for $250k. You did a $200k renovation. Your loan would be $450k (assuming appraisal supported the new value) – the same as if you had bought a finished house for $450k.

There are tremendous advantages to renovating, but also challenges. So make sure renovating is right for you.

I would love to show you any of these homes or help you find a fixer upper that meets your needs. Contact me today!

I am a licensed DC Realtor(R) with extensive renovation experience – your Renovation Realtor(R).   I am a full service shop — helping you find a fixer, identify financing, purchase it, and I can even provide renovation consult.

Note: I am not the listing agent for the featured houses, but I’d be happy to show them to you and represent you as a buyer agent should you choose.  I have not necessarily seen every house in person yet.
