Buying a Home? A few good reasons….

Why Buy?

Equity – It’s an investment. You can build home equity and wealth through real estate. Why pay rent to a landlord? It can be your retirement nest egg! You can sell later and use the money to buy an even bigger home.

Tax Benefits – You may get first-time buyer tax credits. You could get tax deductions during tax time. Write off interest!

Cost – Buying costs less than renting over time. Mortgages are often less expensive than rental payments. Interest rates are crazy low – as low as 2.5%! Take advantage!

Freedom – It is your home. Remodel, renovate, hang pictures, paint. Your space your rules! Pets! Pets! Pets!

Accomplishment – Pay your OWN mortgage instead of someone else’s. The American Dream! Pride!

Stability – Fixed payments for 30 years! A place of your own – no landlord telling you to move. Potentially better for children & family structure.

There are so many reasons to purchase a home for yourself and these are just a few. If we can help you buy a home in the Northern VA market, please contact us at 571-306-2508 or [email protected]

IMPORTANT: Buying soon? Please reach out to our lender partner, Keystone Funding, Natasha Lawrence for questions on preparing yourself to purchase. She can help you with credit repair, create a strategy to purchase in 6-12 months, or get you pre-approved to buy in our current market. You MUST have a local lender partner to help you get to the closing table. Most sellers won’t accept your offer if you are using a bank or credit union like USAA or NFCU. Even BofA or Wells. If you want your offer accepted, get a local partner to ensure you can compete in the marketplace. Natasha can be reached at 703-895-1089 or [email protected] or apply today at

About the Author
Herndon's #1 Home-Selling Agent - Call the experts today!

There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional – integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills, and a high-quality professional network, all of which are hallmarks of how I work.

That said, in my experience as a real estate professional, I've also found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting my clients first. This means keeping myself accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator, and responding quickly to your needs.

This "client first" philosophy has always been my approach and it requires me to continually improve my skills and ways of doing business. In addition, I've found that the latest technologies are enabling me to do everything I've always done, only much more quickly and efficiently. They've also helped me to extend the range of services I provide to my clients.

I have been a resident of Fairfax County since 2001 and have been assisting buyers and sellers achieve their real estate goals in Northern Virginia since 2005. My background includes sales and administrative management as well as 11 years of real estate sales and operations management experience serving top producing teams in Northern Virginia and Montgomery County Maryland.

My military family and I have traveled with the US Navy to Greece, California, Hawaii, Florida, and Virginia. Of all the places we have lived, we love Virginia the best. Ask me why! My husband, of 31 years, serves as a Residence Manager in McLean. We have 3 grown children that all graduated from Herndon High School. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, movies, and a good glass of wine.

Melonie Tibbs and I look forward to serving you and your family!
