dave martin realty group: Home Selling Guarantees Gimmicks? Parkfairfax Alex Va 22302 - 02/19/19 09:39 AM

Parkfairfax home sellers beware — Thousands or Realtors offer home sale guarantee programs and they sound very enticing don't they. It's only natural after-all the most important reason you hire and agent is to get your home sold for you, so when they offer to guarantee the sale it would seem to put your biggest fear, that the house doesn't sell; to rest. If you are selling a house in the Northern Virginia metro area or other parts of the country don't you deserve to find out for yourself the ins and outs of these programs?

dave martin realty group: Parkfairfax Alexandria Va 22302 Neighborhood Homes For Sale - 04/05/18 06:23 PM
Locally, throughout the Northern Virginia market place home buyer confidence continues to be strong. A vibrant local economy and growing jobmarket providing many with great options and opportunities. Presently there are two very different market environments taking place at the same time in Alexandria Va as well as the rest of the region.
This holds particularly true in some specific areas in and around Northern Va metro areas. The shortage of housing inventory; homes for sale at the entry and move-up levels combined with a surplus of homes in the Luxury and High … (1 comments)

As Fairfax has developed and grown over the years, there are many distinct and unique neighborhoods as well as those that blend with one and another seamlessly.

Here are just four examples of communities that have many options of fee simple (Not Condo) properties that individuals, couples and families might consider.
* Kingstowne - Alexandria (Fairfax) Virginia
* Saratoga both Homes and Town Houses
* Runnymeade at Cameron Crossing (Garage and non-Garage Town Homes)

dave martin realty group: The Difference an Hour Will Make This Spring - To Housing | Kingstowne Alexandria VA - 03/10/18 09:19 AM
It most likely will come as no surprise that it is once again time to move our clocks forward to Daylight Savings Time. Instead lets consider the importance of just one hour to homes and the housing market for residents of N. Va.Some Highlights: Don’t forget to set your clocks forward this Sunday, March 11th at 2:00 AM EST in observance of Daylight Saving Time. Unless of course, you are a resident of Arizona or Hawaii! Every hour in the United States: 614 homes are sold, 81 homes regain equity (meaning they are no longer underwater on their mortgage), and the median … (2 comments)

dave martin realty group: Yet One More Reason That Agents Should Not Feed The ZILLOW Monster - 03/09/18 10:23 AM

I am tremendously grateful to clients that take time from their busy days to endorse and recommend me to others. It is a fantastic feeling knowing that my help was appreciated and that clients think enough of me to help my business to grow.
Just this year 2018 three of my recent clients have told me that they have submitted testimonials for me on the Z Monster. But none of these reviews have ever appeared. So I contacted support at Zillow and inquired as to why. Here is their reply:
"Hi Dave,The review you were expecting from xxxxxxx@x.com seems to have been rejected. Zillow runs every … (40 comments)

dave martin realty group: Make Someone Happy - You'll Be Surprised How Happy It Makes You - 03/03/18 09:43 AM
National I Want You to be Happy Day is observed annually on March 3.  This day was created as a day encouraging us to do something to make others happy.  Putting a smile on someone’s face tends to put one on ours, too.  
It’s quite limitless.  A flower here, a silly knock-knock joke there.  Buy the person’s coffee standing in line behind you.  Remind your kids how much you love them.  Leave a sticky note for a co-worker telling them to have a spectacular day, a happy day.  Draw a happy face in the snow for a … (106 comments)

dave martin realty group: Loving The Deal That Wasn't - What I Love About My Business - 02/26/18 05:22 PM
A continuation of "It Feels Great To Make A Bad Situation Better"
The father's (soon to be ex-husband's) living situation solved, we began looking at the options for mom and the kids. They were hoping to stay relatively close and in the same school system. At the same time, we began to market their present home with repeated consultations and consoling sessions - mostly with the mom, (soon to be ex-wife) but on a few occasions I had lengthy discussions with the oldest child, who was in high school.
During these talks it became clear that neither the … (14 comments)

dave martin realty group: It Feels Great To Make A Bad Situation Better - 02/26/18 04:58 PM
Listen, Just Listen.
Anyone who has been in real estate for even a short time knows that there are some recurring themes. Sometimes people are in need of a real estate professional for happy reasons — buying a first home, a couple bringing their lives together, an expanding family needing more space, a promotion, retirement, and others. Sometimes, however, the reasons aren't so happy, though; financial setbacks and divorce can both be reasons people will need my help. This story is about the latter.
I received a call from a woman that had seen one of my promotional items and decided to call … (65 comments)
