Joint Venture with a DC non-profit

This week we met with Mindy Kotler, Director of Asia Policy Point, a non-profit organization. Asia Policy Point is an independent Washington, DC research center studying US-Asia policy. It identifies and discusses research tools for the Asia policy analyst. The Point also highlights the significance of under-reported current events, trends, and challenges in the Asia-Pacific region. The blog draws from the policy research of the APP’s staff and international membership. They are a great organization, highly knowledgeable and we found the stories about the World War II veterans especially compelling. They are worth a look and especially merit your support.

We met with Mindy because we are doing a joint venture. Many non-profits are seeking creative ways of fund raising and development. As Realtors, we will be able to contribute to Asia Policy Point in the name of any buyers or sellers they refer who close a transaction with us. All they are doing is putting a link on their website explaining a way to help Asia Policy Point and we take it from there to give professional real estate service to buyers and sellers in the Metro DC area, including Virginia and Maryland. It’s that simple to have a win/win/win situation for the non profit, the buyer or seller and ourselves.

Remember, if you want some compelling stories about World War II, or any current new and events about Asia, Asia Policy Point is the place to look. “www.asiapolicypoint.blogspot.com/”

Your Real Estate Agent

Your REAL ESTATE AGENTYour real estate agent (who may also carry the designation of REALTOR) plays a pivotal role in your transaction. Often, they will be involved in recommending and coordinating several of the other people necessary to the transaction.

The agent’s primary goal is to listen to your wants and needs and then match you with appropriate properties. In addition to helping you find the right home, they will advise you on the fair market value of that house.

Your real estate agent will also look for any common red flags and pitfalls that should be brought to your attention.

Your agent will help protect your interest by negotiating price, repairs, and other vital details of the purchase on your behalf.

A typical person may only purchase six or seven homes in their lifetime, while some agents may be involved in the sale of that many in a couple of months. Access to that kind of accumulated experience is a valuable asset in buying a home.

Best of all, as a buyer, your real estate will cost you nothing.

In most cases, the seller of the house you purchase will have agreed upfront to pay the commission of the agent who brings the buyer to the transaction. This is why, if for no other reason, you are well advised to have the representation of a knowledgeable real estate agent.

ITEMS/INFORMATION THAT MAY BE NEEDED BY YOUR REAL ESTATE AGENT:

* Price range & Pre-Approval Letter from a Mortgage Lender
* Preferred Location
* List, in order of priority, five “Wants” in Your Ideal Home
* List of “Don’t Wants” (e.g. Busy Street, etc)
* Desired Time Frame For Closing
* Earnest Money
