Tuesday “After-Work Edition” Home & Condo Buying Workshops at 913 Florida Ave. NW


Tuesday-Workshop-Graphic

The local real estate market is busy, competitive and sometimes confusing for home buyers new to the market. January so far has been an extremely busy month in the market!

UrbanLand Company offers twice weekly free Home Buyer Workshops for local home shoppers who want to understand and navigate the pathway to ownership in the DC/MD/VA marketplace.  Tuesday nights at 5:30pm is our After-Work Edition Workshop, with a fast-format introduction to opportunities and challenges facing first time buyers shopping in the $300,000 – $500,000 price range.

Head speaker is UrbanLand Company Principal Broker Gerard DiRuggiero. His experience includes the sales of over 1,500+ condos and homes in the DC/MD/VA market. He is a contributing expert witness with the Board of Zoning Appeals on local real estate matters and also regularly handles the sales and marketing of new condominium projects for developers and investment groups.

“We focus in on core issues that can be obstacles for new buyers.  The focus on the $300,000 – $500,000 price range gives attendees a very clear picture of the broad part of the market as a whole. If you’re looking at below $300,000 (or above $500,000), just let us know and ask a question during the session! We have heavy participation from our audience and topics often change to match who is in room,” commented DiRuggiero.

Topics include:

  • Down payment options available (from traditional 20% down loans to low down payment to 100% financing programs)
  • Understanding how down payments & loan options affect monthly mortgage payment amounts
  • Mortgage Pre-Qualification + understanding your true purchasing power & affordability
  • How to shop smart in the marketplace (agent-directed search + using our mobile app)
  • Finding top neighborhood values & spots for future appreciation
  • Buying new construction vs. resale vs. investment properties
  • What to expect from your real estate agent

Workshops are held at our offices at 913 Florida Avenue, NW. Attendance is always free.  “Our guidance and advice is free of charge. We are real estate agents – our time and expertise is available to you free of charge until you actually successfully buy a home or condo! Come on by & bring a friend!”

There is an alternative Saturday Workshop available from 10am – 11:30am weekly. Please email us if you’d like to attend a Saturday morning. We also meet one-on-one privately during the week in the daytime or evenings, if you reach out to us!

UrbanLand Company Home Buyer Workshops are free of charge. “Our Workshops put move-up and first time buyers on the smart path to condo or home ownership in DC/MD/VA. Our group has sold and settled over $19.3 million in 1st time buyer purchases with people we’ve met through the Workshops in 2014 & 2015,” said DiRuggiero.

UrbanLand Company also works heavily with local developers and handles the sales for several local boutique condo projects.  “Several projects currently have units available for Immediate Delivery. We also regularly talk up our Off-Market condos and our upcoming Pre-Sales in the Workshops. Just ask us during or after a session, and we’ll share details. The Pre-Sales can be a great way for a savvy, prepared home buyer to reserve or purchase a choice unit in a hot new building – there’s often early bird incentives that we’re happy to share,” concluded Gerard.
