Get Smart With City Chic: Is Buying a Home in 2023 on Your Resolutions List?

Get Smart With City Chic is a bi-weekly column giving you the real talk rundown on what’s happening with the D.C. real estate market. Sponsored and written by Lindsay Dreyer, the broker/owner of City Chic Real Estate.

If becoming a homeowner is on your list of New Year’s resolutions for 2023, we’ve got a challenge for you!

What is the 90 Day Homeownership Challenge?

Buying your first home is exciting and empowering but we know that it can also be stressful — especially if you don’t know where to start! At City Chic, we’ve always enjoyed working with first-time home buyers. Our agents do a great job of ensuring our property virgins are educated, informed and involved throughout the process. We know that knowledge is power, so we’ve crafted a 13-week program with weekly lessons that educate you on the ins and outs of buying a home.

This free, 90-day course will help you:

  • Get familiar with the home buying process to prepare yourself for a home purchase
  • Start taking steps toward homeownership
  • Equip yourself with the tools and resources you need to purchase a home when you’re ready

Purchasing a home is a major milestone in your life and most likely the biggest financial purchase you will ever make, so we encourage you to do your homework!

What are some of the benefits of purchasing a home?

One of the most significant benefits of owning a home is the equity you build. When paying rent each month, that money is going towards your landlord’s financial wealth and has no financial benefit to you. As you pay down the mortgage on your own home, it becomes an asset that helps you build personal wealth.

Another perk to owning your home is you can customize it to fit your lifestyle. As a homeowner, you can paint the walls any color you want, replace the kitchen cabinets or finally adopt a furry four-legged friend!

How do I sign up?

Now that you have a better understanding of what to expect from our 90 Day Homeownership Challenge, we hope that you will sign up here. This course is done at your own pace and on your own time — don’t worry, there’s no test at the end!
