Kingstowne Lake Clean Up Day May 11, 2019 – Alexandria, Va 22315
Kingstowne Lake is one of, if not the most well-known part of Kingstowne. It’s a place to walk, run, meetup, or just sit down and enjoy watching the water.

Quite often it’s featured on the front of the Kingstonian magazine and there’s not a person I know who lives in the area that doesn’t drive by the lake regularly as they tend to daily life in Kingstowne.

kingstowne: Should Sellers Get a Pre-Listing Home Inspection? - 04/05/19 12:35 PM
Should Sellers Get a Pre-Listing Home Inspection?
A pre-listing home inspection is something I rarely see homeowners want to do. I can count on my fingers how many times I’ve had a client agree to one and while I see both sides of the story I think the benefits of having one outweigh the drawbacks. I’m not going to say one is needed on every single home but, more often than not I do recommend one be conducted.


The majority of the time a buyer is going to have a home inspection conducted, even if the market is competitive and it’s a void … (19 comments)

kingstowne: Should I List My Home In The Winter Or Wait Until Spring? - 01/27/19 06:56 PM
Is The Winter A Good Time To List My Home
 
A question I frequently receive this time of year from sellers is should I list my home now or wait until spring. My answer is it depends – the decision should be based on your personal circumstances and what the current market conditions are in the area your home is located.
 
There are a lot of sellers that think waiting until spring is best but, if you know you want to sell in the spring it is a good idea to contact your agent now and find out what the local market conditions … (51 comments)
