northern virginia information: The House That Just Wouldn't Sell - 01/28/13 03:32 AM
The House That Just Wouldn't Sell...
Some time back I was in a house listed for sale that was really quite impressive.
Rooms were nicely decorated...
Furniture was well arranged....
There was a Beautiful Flower Garden with a meandering pathway...
The view of the property from the street was truly inviting...
In fact, my clients were so impressed, they wanted to buy it! But there was a problem... The Days on the Market for this property had been almost a year and in our area this house should have sold in days - no more than a month. So my buyers asked: "David, what's wrong with this house?" I told them … (2 comments)

northern virginia information: Even If It Has Cost Me A Mailbox? - 01/22/13 03:48 AM
I'm a Realtor® that has often grumbled to my wife and others I'm close to about our HOA and their Fees! In fact, a short time ago we spent many thousands of dollars fixing up the outside of our house, wrapping it in Vinyl, doing some painting and even replacing the Garage door. You would think the HOA would take notice when doing the Annual Inspection and commend us for helping our home look so nice.
Not so! Instead, a few months ago we were written up and cited for a little rust on our Mailbox. I hadn't noticed it but one … (9 comments)

northern virginia information: A Topic That Isn't Totally About Real Estate - 01/12/13 06:15 AM
I confess, I'm not one to make New Year's Resolutions. It's great if you are there and have done so successfully, but years ago, I simply gave that up for one simple reason - failure.
On the other hand, I feel this is a good time of year to make commitments. When you think of it, life is full of commitment. There is the commitment to make payments on the Mortgage, on time and in full each month. There is the commitment to pay for the Car, to protect our Credit and more.
One thing I've learned about Commitment, is it generally … (8 comments)

We all know that Small Rooms can pose BIG problems, especially when endeavoring to sell a house. This is true for both Real Estate Agents who are marketing a particular property and for Home Owners, who are trying to sell that property as well. The real question is: How do I make a small room look and feel larger than what it is?
I recently read an article from Lowe's that contains some excellent pointers on working with small rooms. The article is about: Ways To Make A Small Room Look Larger

Fall is my favorite season of the year. I like the fact the air has cooled a bit, grass tends to become a bit greener in Virginia and of course the trees take on a totally different look. In fact, leaves change color and then Virginia becomes a Photographer's Paradise.One of our favorite drives during the fall season has always been from Warrenton to Sperryville. The road isn't too busy and there are a multitude of even less traveled roads you can follow. Of course this route always provides a wonderful Fall Color Tour.There is a great website for knowing when … (5 comments)

My wife and I decided to take a drive with our cameras this afternoon to one of our favorite places - Silver Lake Park. In fact, this particular setting is only 10 minutes from Haymarket, Virginia. While there are many fine Prince William County Parks, this particular one is in a very quiet setting. It feels like you are in the country while all the while just minutes from the city. Oh, and I might add, the park is just about an hour from Washington D.C....Here are a few photos we took. I hope you enjoy....
