Rachel Helmich Cheng REALTOR® & Certified Senior Housing Professional
Real Broker, LLC
(1)

Born and raised in Reston, now a resident of Loudoun County, Rachel began her career as a Realtor® after nearly two decades of teaching. Assisting friends and fellow community members on their real estate journeys, she quickly drew parallels from her experience in the classroom. Rachel offers the same care and attention she’s provided to students and their families in Northern Virginia since 2001.

Rachel is one of two Certified Senior Housing Professionals (CSHPs) in Virginia providing support, guidance, and solutions for homeowners and/or their families as they navigate the process of parting with a long-held home. Using the five steps of the Downsizing Made Easy system to simplify the process, she helps clients explore living options and create a customized plan, communicate goals and wishes to others, collaborate with other vetted professionals to execute the plan, tend to a house full of possessions, and celebrate the progress! Licensed in the Commonwealth of Virginia, serving buyers and sellers from the Compass McLean office, Rachel Cheng is educator, advocate, and REALTOR®… in that order.

DOM is defined as the number of days from the date on which the property is listed for sale on the local real estate brokers’ multiple listing service (MLS) to the date when the seller has signed a contract for the sale of the property with the buyer.

A related metric is the average DOM for homes sold in a market during a specified period. A low average DOM indicates a strong market that favors sellers. A high average DOM signals a weak market that favors buyers. Seasonality can also be a factor.

Homes generally appear to sell faster in Spring than Winter, since you often have more people looking to purchase and sell during the more pleasant weather months rather than the colder more uncomfortable weather months.

Closing is when the home sale is considered final, which typically includes all parties’ signatures on all required documents, all monies conveyed, and when a lender is involved, with full lender’s approval.

For some markets across the nation, recording the deed with the county clerk’s office is the ultimate and final step of closing.

Once all of these items are completed, then a buyer’s access to the property is then provided, and the buyer is considered the new homeowner.

A conventional sale is when the property is owned outright (has no mortgage remaining) or the owner owes less on their mortgage than what the market indicates the owner could sell their property for. Such conventional sales are often smoother transactions than non-conventional sales, such as foreclosures, probate related sales and short sales.

Usually, these are the rules and regulations placed on real property by a homeowner’s association (HOA), a neighborhood association, a developer, or a builder that sets forth any requirements and limitations of what a homeowner is allowed to do with the property. It may also include monthly and/or annual fees or special assessments.

When a buyer makes an offer on a property they haven’t seen, even when it was possible to see it, that offer is considered a “blind offer”.

It is most commonly used in a highly competitive area and/or circumstance, and used as an attempt to be first and win quickly.

When a buyer is interested in purchasing a property that is already under contract with someone else, that buyer has an opportunity to submit a “backup offer”, in case the first transaction falls apart.

A backup offer must still be negotiated and any monies, such as earnest money, submitted, to confirm it is the next offer in line. There can only be one backup offer legally, as you cannot have a backup to the backup.
