Welcome to my real estate website. I cover the home buying & selling process, as well as many related aspects of real estate such as land purchases & sales, information for tenants, landlords, and agents. I've put thousands of hours into this site & enabled it to be a wealth of information about real estate with content available nowhere else. It's also rich with resources available elsewhere that too few know about. I cite extensively - even competitors in my area. You'll notice localized content to SE VA, & content applicable nationally in a highly detailed yet user friendly fashion via heavy usage of expandable sections & hyperlinks to expedite navigation on most pages. - Adam Garrett: 3rd Generation Realtor with Garrett Realty Partners Navigational Tips: Be sure to keep in mind the search features at the top right of each page & the top resources visible on a desktop.
My buyer page includes my Buyer's Guide made up of dozens of my articles on various subjects, information about what I offer buyers, my unmatched Master Spreadsheet for Prospective Home Purchase Considerations & more.
SE Virginia & Area Considerations
I cover a wide variety of area considerations going over things to do in SE VA, local forms used in real estate, market information, crime, etc. I'm proud of a spreadsheet of SE VA cities/counties w/ a side by side comparison of factors like real estate tax rates (i.e. some are more double those of others), personal property tax rates, local flood zone projections etc.
In my landlords & tenants page you'll find my landlord tips, locating a rental, rent or buy, temporary housing, renting out rooms, reducing rent costs, renting when you have low credit or eviction history, immigrant housing recommendations, & more. There are also some ways that I can personally assist, whether fee based tenant assistance, acquisitions for investors, etc.
Here I dive deep into the financial aspects of things for those looking to buy, sell, rent, landlord, or own. I cover topics like where to get free credit scores vs scores that can easily be 100 points off what your lender will pull, how to boost credit, how to budget, 10+ programs to buy if you don't have a down payment, etc. I also go over how I can help with various aspects of finances including programs to reduce home cost, credit, budgeting, etc.
