As we all know, it is serious back to school time.  It seems to be consuming my life, and if you have kids in school, it's probably been your focus... too.  I was sent home a list of web sites where I can register my various store loyalty cards so that any school benefits are sent to my children'...

You probably are aware of the first time home buyer tax credit of up to $8K. You may also be aware it is set to expire soon, I think there are 53 business days left to get your transaction closed and still be able to take advantage of this incentive.

Back To School   Today is the first day of school here in Loudoun County.  I logged onto Facebook this morning to share my bus stop photos, and to see those of my friends.  I read comments from parents whose children are off at a boarding school or college, parents of kids yet to enter school... ...

The National Aquarium at the Baltimore Inner Harbor is about an hour from Loudoun County - an hour and half from Leesburg (where I live).  It's a fabulous place for kids and adults alike and makes for a great day trip. My kids (3 and 6) had never seen real sharks (although we all watched the Disc...

Continuing our posts on short sales, this post discusses the most common clauses in the contract, and the ideal contract for each party.  All real estate contracts have contingencies in them on both sides.  A contingency is the "if" in these statements: I will sell you this house IF _____________...
