First-Time Home Buyer Help

Our real estate agents know buying your first home can seem complicated – really complicated

We've designed a home-buying tool just for you! You enter a few pieces of information, and we'll return a list of homes we think are affordable for you based upon those entries. It couldn't be easier!

Still, the more you understand going into the process, the easier it is to be prepared.

Let's consider these things all first-time home buyers should know:

  1. There Are Mortgages "Just for You"
    Yes, there are plenty of mortgage programs out there just for first-time buyers. Many of them offer favorable terms and let you go forward without a down payment. However, some homes may not be eligible, or there may be other requirements (like attending "buyer education.")

Richmond Area July 4 Celebrations
Just like our clients, our real estate agents are looking forward to the chance to enjoy a classic Fourth of July party in and around the Richmond area. Richmond real estate offers many wonderful opportunities to homeowners, including the chance to enjoy some of the state's best Independence Day bashes.

If you're looking for something to do to celebrate our nation's freedom, check out these events:

  1. Chesterfield Fourth of July Celebration – 10300 Courthouse Road, Chesterfield, VA
    Chesterfield homes for sale will light up this summer thanks to the always fun Fourth of July Celebration in town. Live music will set the scene starting at 5 p.m. while you dine from the tastiest local food trucks. Little ones will love it thanks to the children's inflatable play area.

RVA Area Food Trucks

Food trucks have long been loved around the world, with some of the longest-running trucks in cities like London, Oxford, and Cambridge in the UK. Today, this global phenomenon has spread across the United States.

Not surprisingly, our area is on the cutting edge of this trend in the United States. Our REALTORS® agree--there's nothing like a local Richmond food truck for a scrumptious lunch.  

These trucks, which roam our streets, show up just in time for lunch, a festival or pre-game tailgating party to quiet the cravings of hungry bystanders with a cornucopia of fare from paninis and tacos to Asian fusion and funnel cakes.  

Here is our list of six favorite food trucks to visit.  While it is certainly not definitive,  it is a great "sampler" of where to find some of the best food trucks in our area. 

Note: Most food trucks in Richmond do not have fixed locations, although there are some areas of town that are more popular than others. To get the latest information on where to find your favorite truck, check out its website or visit Food Trucks In, which gives you live truck status.
