In honor of #NationalSavingsDay let's talk about the costs of homeownership you'll want to be prepared for (aka "save for") if you want to buy your first home!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Don't forget to save this post for later!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1. Property taxes - this could have a big impact on your budget depending on the area where you’re looking ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2. Homeowner’s association or condo fees⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3. Home Insurance (when purchasing a home, the lender will typically require one year paid up front in order to close on your home)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
4. Home maintenance - landscaping, lawn equipment, appliances that need to be replaced, chimney cleaning, heating and electrical costs, etc. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
5. HVAC, ELECTRICAL, PLUMBING - whether it's repairs that need to be done at some point, clogged drains, replacing furnace filters, or having your HVAC serviced, you'll want to budget for these expenses before buying a home. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
On another note: What is something fun you're saving for in your home? A remodeling project, a Nespresso machine, a new sectional.. tell me in the comments!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

This is STRAIGHT from the PRO: Holding onto the "extra" is the reason your house doesn't stay tidy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It's not the kids. It's not the small closets. You have too much!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You're consuming too much, holding on to too much and making it harder and more stressful than it needs to be.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Physical clutter creates MENTAL clutter. Mental clutter creates stress.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We don't need more stress or more stuff, we need more ORGANIZATION!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So Step 1 is to conquer the clutter and I have just what you need!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Whether you're thinking of selling and need to get rid of the junk or you're doing it for your sanity, I have your checklist to conquering the clutter and letting go (the full list of what to get rid of first)!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The checklist is just 1 of 9 pages of home organization how to (brought to you by my friend at Home Refreshment). Consider it your Home Organization Starter Kit! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Want a copy? Drop me an emoji, tell me the space that's hardest to keep organized OR just send me a DM and tell me you want it!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

3 Game Changing Spaces to Organize FIRST:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1. The mudroom: From lack of storage to spacious laundry areas, the goal is to make this space functional! Simply adding a combination of shelves, baskets, and trays for storage can help organize utility items, extra towels, and cleaning products. If you have the space, incorporate a shoe rack, coat rack and basket for extra accessories. Store rarely used items on higher shelves or upper cabinets.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2. The Home Office: With the massive increase in work from home setups, the home office space is becoming top priority for home buyers (and homeowners living and working in sanity)! Invest in acrylic boxes and file folders for office storage. Create a docking station for electronics, a command center for keeping things that need to get done and add compartments to drawers for maximizing your space while also staying organized.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3, The Closets:Goal when selling: You want buyers to see how much SPACE you have vs how much STUFF you have. Goal when living - Letting go = freedom. Remove overwhelm and mental clutter through an organized home. Pro Tip: Remove half of what is in your closet and then organize. Start with items you haven't worn in over 1 year - create a pile. Then move on to shoes. Sort by color, style (sleeve length) and shoe type. Designate spaces for bags, purses and accessories. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

How to get over the house that got away:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Pull up a chair and come on in! I just brewed a fresh pot of coffee and I'm here to help relieve your house hunting blues. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
They say Real Estate Agents double as "therapists" for a reason you know! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You found THE ONE, you wrote THE OFFER, you created Pinterest boards full of inspo for how you would Chip and Jo that kitchen after closing day. BUT the sellers didn't accept your offer.. how do you get over missing out on THE HOUSE!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As cliche as it sounds .. it wasn't meant to be! I know it's hard to hear, but I promise it's true. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Did you know that every buyer of mine that has missed out on "the one" actually ended up glad that they did? Believe it or not, every single time, they've found an even more perfect for them, home!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So what do you do in the moment? A few things.. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1. Know that you offered your highest and best. There is nothing more you could've done. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2. Know that there WILL be another house for you!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3. Keep looking! Many times when a buyer misses out on House #1.. the actual ONE is not far behind! You know what you're looking for now and you won't hesitate when it's time to make a move. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
4. You're making smart real estate decisions. If you would've offered higher than you did or waived a major contingency, you might have regretted it. Now you can take what you learned and apply it to the next house!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Have you hesitated starting your house hunting journey because of the competition? #buyingahomeinnova #homebuyers #investors #realestatebuyer #realestate #nova #novarealestate #northernvirginia #loudouncounty #locorealestate #aldie #ashburn #leesburg #chantilly #purcellville #middleburg #haymarket #princewilliamcounty #fauquiercounty #luxurylistings #exprealty #northernvirginiarealestate

DOUBLE TAP IF YOU WANT A HOUSE WITH A SWIM UP BAR!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
While there probably aren’t many homes on the market with swim up bars, there are a handful of homes with pools (you can always put your favorite cocktail on the edge of the pool and call it a bar 😉⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Do you want a list for homes for sale with pools? Drop your location and email address below (or send a DM) and I’ll send you a list! #inspiring #quotes #motivational #thegoodquote #motivationalspeaker #quotestoliveby #realestate #nova #novarealestate #northernvirginia #loudouncounty #locorealestate #aldie #ashburn #leesburg #chantilly #purcellville #middleburg #haymarket #princewilliamcounty #fauquiercounty #luxurylistings #exprealty #northernvirginiarealestate

THE TOP REASONS WHY THE SELLER DIDN’T PICK YOUR OFFER⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1. You didn’t do your research! If you are competing with other offers on the house you love, it’s so important to spend some time finding out what is important to the seller.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Do they prefer a specific closing date or length of time before closing? Would allowing them to rent it back for 1-2 weeks post closing be helpful to them in the transition into their new home? Your agent should find out how you can be accommodating to the sellers to strengthen your offer in more ways than one.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2. You raised red flags from the get go – this could be a long list of contingencies and extended time frames for meeting them – the sellers are going to pick the easiest buyer, not the most complicated!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3. You didn’t offer your “highest and best” – but what does that really mean? It means offering what you’re willing to pay for the home from the start.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
That doesn’t mean you should “overpay” of the house. It just means that doing your due diligence with your agent up front to determine what is “too much” for you to offer on the house vs where you feel comfortable.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This isn’t the time to “wait for the sellers to counter”. When you meet with your Real Estate Agent prior to looking at homes, you can learn about the market you’re buying in.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Ask questions like “What is the average days on the market in this price range?” and “How much over asking are homes selling for” – then write your offer accordingly! #buyingahomeinnova #homebuyers #investors #realestatebuyer #realestate #nova #novarealestate #northernvirginia #loudouncounty #locorealestate #aldie #ashburn #leesburg #chantilly #purcellville #middleburg #haymarket #princewilliamcounty #fauquiercounty #luxurylistings #exprealty #northernvirginiarealestate

Should you include an escalation clause in your offer?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Answer: MAYBE!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Let’s take a walk in the sellers shoes. Pretend you’re selling your home and you get 2 offers on day one.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You have your house listed for $350,000 and offer 1 has a price of $350,000 but an escalation clause that increases the price to $360,000 if another offer comes in.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
BUT – offer 2 comes in at $368,000 – no escalation clause.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As a seller would you take the offer who went higher from the get go or take the escalation clause offer and increase the price by $2,000?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Here’s what you need to know before including this in your offer – some sellers may choose the offer that chose to initially come in higher and valued their home at a higher price.. meaning maybe skip the escalation clause and offer your highest and best instead!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What do you think? If you sold your house would you like or dislike the offer with the escalation clause?

The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra ✨ Working with me always includes “that little extra”!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Bringing your fave coffee order to showings, having a modern marketing plan that focuses on using social media to effectively market my listings to target the RIGHT buyers while also being able to stay connected to agents everywhere to find you the right home as a buyer, sharing my best staging tips, organizational tips, and connecting you with the right vendors to help you show your home in it’s best light / or buy your home with confidence, … these are just some of the unique touch points that are part of my client experience.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Every experience is slightly different because every client is different!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A client of mine was nervous out about the home inspection so I brought them a 6 pack of their favorite beer (which I know because of a question I ask in my buyer survey), Another client had delays with their movers post closing so I dropped off a gift card to a local burger place so they could grab lunch while they waited). I strive to continuously provide that “little extra” in every transaction. I want your home buying / selling experience to not only be enjoyable but to be memorable and fun!

About me

The name “Rococo Real Estate & Design” was born from a love story.... mine. My nickname is Coco, short for Chloe, and my boyfriend’s nickname is Ro, short for Romie, so we’re Rococo. Funnily enough our namesake also means an “exceptionally ornamental and theatrical style of architecture, art, and decoration…” couldn’t be more perfect! Because I love interior design in addition to having a passion for real estate.

But I wasn’t always an amazing real estate agent & interior designer. Born in England, and raised in VA, I have a compelling combination of British class and Virginian charm. After getting my Masters in Biotechnology, I worked as a neuroscience & psychology sales consultant for years, before making the big switch into real estate & design. You may be thinking, “from science to something so people-infused and creative?” But, I’ve always loved helping others and I’ve also been pretty artistic. My passion for interior design and do-it-yourself projects recently landed me a spot in the Washingtonian magazine.

Flash forward to reality, several years later, I decided to regroup and rethink my career and focus in life, and did a bit of soul-searching. I knew I wanted to find something I loved so much, that by doing it, I’d jump out of bed in the morning with a smile on my face. As someone who loves flipping houses, I knew that I wanted to make real estate & design my new career. ... and I’m so loving life, I haven’t looked back.

What you get with me:

I was raised in NoVa and take pride in the roots I’ve planted here, and I consider it my privilege to elevate my clients’ real estate experience. As a top sales consultant year after year, I like to win (for my clients) and do so with a calm demeanor and a smile. Buying or selling can be fun because I take care of the details for you. As someone who is well-versed in the psychology of buying and selling homes, you’ll have the upper edge when it comes to me negotiating on your behalf. My clients not only get an expert negotiator, but also an amazing design consultant who can show their home best! After you move in, we’ll be able to make it homey – because every detail matters. It’s so much more than real estate, it’s where you’ll make memories for years to come!

I’ve lived and worked in the NoVA area for 25+ years, so I’ve made a lot of memories in the area. I currently live in Brambleton, VA with my boyfriend, Romie, and our three rescue dogs, Monty, Georgie, & Archie. I’m a great person to ask for food, wine, shopping and travel tips. Why don’t we chat today?
