home: Consider the Amenities - 03/06/17 11:10 AM
The amenities on a rental property can often be the deciding factor for many renters. The available amenities may make a less affordable property seem more appealing. Conversely a property which is more expensive may be considered worthwhile if the amenities offered are considered valuable enough to compensate for the higher price. When making this decision, homeowners should consider their own personal preferences as well as their budgetary constraints to make an informed decision. Before making a decision to rent a property, the renter should carefully consider which amenities are necessary, which amenities are optional but highly desired and how much … (1 comments)

The process for purchasing a home in Fairfax County is the same as anywhere in the Commonwealth of Virginia but different from the procedures that are used in many states. Unlike the New York, each party is not represented at closing by a attorney. Instead, a settlement company manages the transaction.  The settlement company’s attorney represents the contract, and not any one party at the table. When the buyer and seller agree to a contract, the buyer will deposit money into escrow. The settlement agent will direct the transfer of escrow funds. In Northern Virginia, there are no closing meetings. It … (0 comments)
