Looking back, I have had the pleasure of working with women throughout most of my professional life. In my first career as an Esthetician, I worked in a Day Spa, where day after day a vast majority of our clientele was women. That’s not to say I never saw men – some guys do love their facial treatments! Fast forward to the present and my Real Estate career. Over the past 13+ years in this industry, I’ve worked with both men and women, and I can honestly say there is a difference between the two. While both are treated equally at the table, they show up with a different view on the Real Estate transaction, and their approaches and needs can be very different as well.
True or False?
Single women make up 23% of first time home buyers.
According to the National Association of Realtors – it’s true! Most women would tell you that there is a huge sense of independence in owing their own home, and it often helps them feel they are in charge of their future and financial goals. Regardless of whether they are single or not, women have a tendency to want to settle in and put down roots. Buying a home can give them the opportunity to do just that, while gaining a great sense of community and belonging. Here are the top 3 things Women need to know when buying Real Estate.
Know Your Budget
First and foremost, what can you comfortably afford? This is key, as no one wants to be “house poor”. Getting in touch with the right professionals is going to be critical, so finding a great Realtor should be at the top of your to-do list. Realtors are a great resource when it comes to buying a home. Not only do they know home buying and selling inside and out, but a great agent is going to know all the key players needed during the transaction – including a great lender.
Once you have contacted your Realtor, request the names of several Lenders they recommend. Contact the Lenders to get pre-qualified for a loan. Fully understanding how much you can comfortably afford and still maintain the lifestyle you enjoy, is going to make or break your buying experience. For example, you may be able to afford $2,500.00 per month for your PITI payment (principal, interest, taxes, insurance), but do you really want to spend that much? If you spend that much can you reasonably maintain your lifestyle or are you going to have to cut back (less Starbucks, wardrobe adjustments, less travel, etc.)? If you are not willing to cut back then you have to know what comfortable means to you, and what that equates to in a purchase price. Women tend to look at Buying as an investment into their future, and will often proceed with caution. Take a hard look at the short term and the long term goals. You may even want to get in touch with a financial advisor to understand the big picture.
Know Your Home Style
Understanding what type of home you can afford, and what other expenses may be involved in owning this style of home is very important. If you can afford a single family home, you need to know ahead of time what the monthly, yearly, and even next 5 years will cost just for maintenance. And maintenance on a single family home may include simple things like the lawn and interior touch ups. It could also be potentially large expenses such as roof repairs or new windows.
If you have a clearer idea of what style home you want, whether it is a single family home where you can plant a garden, a townhome with a smaller backyard, or a condo where the gardens are maintained for you, this can be a real time saver. Consulting with your Realtor about this is extremely helpful. They will ask the right questions to help you understand more about what type of home is right for your lifestyle in the market you are located in.
Know Your Team
Last but not least, surround yourself with a great team – Realtor, Lender, financial advisor, home inspector, etc. Starting out with the right team can make all the difference in the home buying experience. Women often rely on and trust other professionals, so forming a team you can trust will provide a level of comfort along the way. Most likely you will only buy a few homes over the course of your lifetime. Take your time, do your research and make sure you feel comfortable with making the right decision. Buying a home is a wonderful experience, but it is not something to rush.
We love helping our clients find the right home! Whether this is your first home or your fourth, we are happy to help you through the home buying and selling experience. We believe in transparency and our experience and commitment to helping you find your dream home leads you to a wonderful real estate experience.

Our infographic shows how the Residential Real Estate market stayed strong through the end of 2016. And that carried over into the new year! Despite interest rates rising slightly during the 1st Quarter of 2017, the market stayed steady. Buyers competed against a low inventory of homes on the market through our unseasonably mild winter. As Spring arrived in full force more homes are being listed For Sale.
As you can see, 6,275 homes were sold in Loudoun County during 2016, which was up 5% over 2015. Single Family homes sold for an average of $609,994. Townhomes sold for an average of $408,173. Again, these were an increase over the previous year. And we expect this upward trend to continue as the market stays strong and steady.
As of April 25th of this year, there were 1,241 homes for sale in Loudoun County. Interest Rates are at the lowest they’ve been all year which makes now a great time to buy and sell Real Estate!
