            Last week, Port Potomac, Woodbridge home sellers saw more than the usual number of reasons to look forward to this spring’s Port Potomac, Woodbridge home sales selling season. It looked like the opposite of the lengthy real estate “Perfect Storm” that caused freefall across the national landscape.
             Signs pointed to the possibility that we may be headed into the opposite market conditions. Webster’s Dictionary says the opposite of ‘storm’ is ‘calm’ – but I don’t think you would call Port Potomac, Woodbridge’s home sales outlook … (0 comments)

 Your yard is your Rippon Landing, Woodbridge home's calling card. A dated or overgrown yard can be a huge turnoff to potential buyers – just as an appealing one can trump other objections.
