My friend Ati (whom you have seen on an episode of HGTV’s Bang for your Bucks episode before…) is having a big week! She’s busy preparing to host a workshop on home buying this weekend AND her business, DC Home Buzz, landed itself in The New York Times’ “Capturing the Soul of a Business in a Single Photograph” slideshow. Not bad 😉
While getting your picture featured in The New York Times is a big deal, let’s talk about the workshop… I bought my first (and so far only) place a little over four years ago. The husband and I went into the process of buying our condo pretty blindly. From what I understand from my friends who are in the process of looking for their first home right now, the market is quite different in the DC area today than it was back in 2008. It’s a seller’s market and to help wanna-be first time home owners navigate the tricky DC real estate waters, Ati and her DC Home Buzz partners are throwing a workshop on the “10 commandments of Home Buying: a First Timer’s Guide.” Over light brunch and mimosas, she’ll show participants the ropes of the real estate process from initial search to closing and explain how to figure out what you can afford.
