Terry Belt & The Belt Team Named To Washingtonian’s Top Real Estate Agent List

The Belt Team is honored to announce that we have once again been named to Washingtonian Magazines “Top Real Estate Agent List” in the 2017 “Best of Washington” issue. Only about 100 agents in the entire Northern VA, Washington D.C. & Maryland area (out of tens of thousands) were listed (and a large number of those were in our own Keller Williams McLean office!). Thanks to all of our clients and friends for allowing us to serve you and for your referrals!

In case you’re wondering how they came up with the list, here’s what the magazine said previously: ” We sent surveys to nearly 16,000 recent Washington homebuyers asking them to rank their agents on a series of criteria, including integrity, market knowledge, and negotiation skills. We called mortgage brokers and settlement attorneys to ask whom they most enjoy doing business with and whose clients always seem happiest. And of course, we asked dozens of agents to dish about their peers. Based on these layers of reporting, we came up with the names.

The Belt Team includes Terry Belt (CEO), Gail Belt (Founding Partner), Kevin Kleifges (Listing Specialist), Beth Dadisman (Realtor), Tom Hanton (Realtor), Christy Grossman (Chief Operating Officer), Jerry Belt (Special Services) & Patty Schuebel (Client Care Manager).

What Info Is Needed To Apply For A Mortgage

Documents Needed For Mortgage Loan

If you’re thinking about buying a home, one of the most important things you should do is get a loan PRE-APPROVAL (not just a loan pre-qualification, but a FULL approval.)

This will let you know what you qualify for and it will be something a Seller expects to see when you write a contract.

Your Realtor can connect you with reputable, trustworthy lenders.

Here’s a list of some of the paperwork you’ll likely need to gather to give to your lender:

  • Most recent 30 days of pay stubs (if you are an employee)
  • Year-to-date profit & loss statement (if you are self-employed)
  • Last two years’ W-2’s & personal tax returns
  • Last two years’ 1099’s & business tax returns (if self-employed)
  • Two most recent months of bank statements for each account (all pages – savings, checking, money market, securities, etc.)
  • Copy of driver’s license
  • Mortgage statements, insurance info, property tax bill & HOA statement for each property owned (if you do not own property and are renting – contact info for landlord)
  • Divorce decree and separation agreement (if applicable)

Once you make application – here are a few tips:

DO:

  • Respond quickly to requests for additional info from the lender (and there are almost always additional requests or clarifications needed)
  • Stay current on all your existing accounts
  • Pay off any existing collections, judgments or tax liens

DON’T:

  • Open new credit cards
  • Take out a new loan or lease
  • Don’t let people run credit checks on you
  • Don’t make any major purchases (furniture, car, boat)

Once your loan is approved, you are ready to start looking for your DREAM HOME!

In case you’re wondering how they came up with the list, here’s what the magazine said: “While our directory of top-producing agents . . .is based on sales volume, this list of best agents takes many factors into account—and was much more complicated to compile. We sent surveys to nearly 16,000 recent Washington homebuyers asking them to rank their agents on a series of criteria, including integrity, market knowledge, and negotiation skills. We called mortgage brokers and settlement attorneys to ask whom they most enjoy doing business with and whose clients always seem happiest.
