Investing in a residence is an exciting milestone, and it's likely the biggest purchase you'll ever make. So don’t jump into it without doing your homework. Nesbitt Realty is here to help. In Alexandria, for many purchasers it's often cheaper for State employees to purchase than to lease a home—especially if we pick up the cash at settlement. If you are a State Department buyer, one of the barriers to cross will be your money for settlement fees. That’s true whether you’re pondering a home in Northern Virginia or any other duplex like this striking duplex at 228 S Alfred St S. But I can advise: Nesbitt Realty can guide with your funds to close. What does that mean exactly? Well, if you allow Nesbitt Realty to represent you as your agent when you buy a residence such as this duplex at 228 S Alfred St S, then Nesbitt Realty will pay a State Department home-buyer credit of $5,571 toward your closing costs. It's expected that details and restrictions apply. For example, this offer is void where prohibited.
