Enjoying my neighborhood in all 4 seasons of Fairfax Va.

Seasons are a big deal in my evaluation of real estate for my clients. A home that shows well and looks so inviting to me at first glance may turn out to be a nightmare in the winter months. Learning how to view my clients' needs in a 4 season approach seems prudent. 

 

Some areas are hard to imagine unless you have been there. An example, I have a clothes dryer at work to wash patient gowns. I never thought I would use it to dry my patients clothes. Turns out many times that my dryer has come in handy so I ask them what happened. They actually slip and fall in their own driveways and their walkways.

 

As a realtor and a student of others, I have learned that it is not only stairs that are a problem, but rain, lots of it. Also considering trees, it limits outdoor activities like pools. Gutters and how they run in neighborhoods could cause a raised eyebrow or two. 

 

Even when I dated a landscaper, he would tell me that neighborhoods that are new don't landscape until year 3 of existence. I listen and think about ground bees in lamb's ear foliage, and listen to others talk about hail damage.

 

My neighborhood in Fairfax, VA is a 4 season beautiful environment that I enjoy. I just want to keep learning about the season's so I can really show a client a house that delivers year round satisfaction.

Welcome to ActiveRain. I like your take on a home for all 4 seasons. As a former RN, I look at my clients in the same way.

Most of the time I love having 4 seasons, although i could do without all the cold and snow. I like how you look at all 4 seasons as they do affect value and desirability Elizabeth Murphree
