Military Relocation to Northern Virginia
Serving Those Who Serve Others
You may have been referred to us by someone in our family of military clients, and we thank them not only for their service, but for their trust and confidence in us. Integrity agents have been helping military clients and their families successfully relocate to Northern Virginia for over 25 years, so if you have received PCS orders to Northern Virginia, you have come to the right place.
Where Will You Be Working? Whether you will be working at the Pentagon, Ft. Belvoir, Quantico, or one of the many other military work hubs in the area we understand your logistical needs. Whether you need a short-term rental property, or you plan to purchase, or even if you are not sure if you should rent or buy, we are prepared to empower you with the information you need to make the right choice.
Quality of Life Issues: We understand that moving is never easy, and that there is much more to it than just finding a place to live. It’s also about schools, day care, shopping, recreational activities and just normal day to day life. Critical to life in Northern Virginia is the length of your daily commute to and from work. For those who have never lived here, a home in the further out suburbs may seem like the ideal place to live from a price perspective, but daily commutes to and from those areas can be difficult, stressful and costly if you make the wrong choice. We are prepared to provide all the information so you can make the best choice. We also provide you with the resources to make the rest of your move as easy as possible.
Cost of Housing: The cost of housing in Northern Virginia continues to increase each year. The market for quality rentals remains tight in the closer-in suburbs, and they do not stay on the market for long. Important to you is working with an agent who will find and show you those properties as soon as they come on the market – Integrity agents understand this rental market and are prepared to respond quickly and effectively.
Financing – Getting the Best Rate:
Critical to what your monthly housing cost will be if you are buying, is the type of financing available to you. Today there is so much information available online and in advertising it is hard to make good choices. Many military buyers jump to work with someone they know and already have a relationship with, just to get a comfort level. Some “affinity” groups not only offer you rebates, but they will offer you a realtor referral as well. While we have every respect for these groups, and know they are very good at their “core competencies,” our experience also tells us that “rebates” may sound good, but you usually end up with a higher rate. Their agent referrals in many cases will result in inexperienced agents who are giving up a huge part of their commission to the affinity group.
Our philosophy when assisting clients is very simple- we will refer you to lenders who have the best rate for your specific situation, regardless of who that might be. That is our only goal.
Thank you for your service to our country. We look forward to being of service to you.
