Is there a more charming urban village than Del Ray, Virginia?Del Ray is popular for its fabulously eclectic mix of single family homes, artsy downtown, independent spirit and proximity to Potomac Yard and Old Town.Del Ray grew from several subdivision tracts; Hume, Mount Ida, Saint Elmo’s and its namesake Del Ray. The historic communities of Del Ray and St. Elmo’s originated in early 1894, when developer Charles Wood organized a grid pattern of streets running north–south and east–west. The neighborhoods were separated by the St. Asaph Racetrack (closed in1904 following a gambling raid). In 1908, the tracts of Del Ray, St. Elmo’s, Mt.

A sinking sidewalk is bad news for you and your guests. Where the pavement is uneven, someone’s bound to trip eventually.Pavement sinks because exterior concrete is always on the move. Soil settles. Moisture moves soil up and down. In cold climates, frost can heave and lift concrete slabs.Tearing out, hauling away and replacing an entire sidewalk or driveway is expensive – and hard on the environment when all that concrete ends up in a landfill. But if your concrete is in pretty good shape, you can avoid this process. By “pretty good shape” I mean large sturdy pieces and a surface that is smooth and solid.If that’s the case, a process called mudjacking can level the concrete slab. For about one-third the cost of replacement, a specialized contractor will drill holes in the slab and pump...

I'd made an appointment for a Friday after work showing, and it was exactly what my buyers wanted.  Except for one thing.  Just before leaving the office, I noticed another brand new listing that had an awesome view of the Potomac River.  So instead of leaving the first one to go write a contract, we did a little detour toward the River. This place was amazing, and the price tag was, too.  And the pet policy worked for my clients, who had two tiny dogs and a cat.  So we ran back to their temporary digs, and I cranked out the offer, slipped it into Docusign, and off to the listing agent.   It was a good, solid offer, and the seller signed it the next morning before the first of two weekend Open Houses. So if your Realtor grabs you after work to see the great new listings, you've got a le...

As seen in www.thezebra.org Newspaper Column titled "Ask REALTOR CHERYL" BATTLE OF THE AMENITIES!Gen Y, Millennials (born between 1982-2001) about 80 million of the US population AND Aging Boomers (Born between 1945-1964) about 80 million also of the US population have begun setting the standard on what is being purchased.  Of course there is always plenty in demand for the middle group consisting of families with 2 children, large families and multi-family dwellings, but with almost half of the US population fitting into the first two categories, developers are taking note and building according to these new living trends.

This is my weekly market update for properties under 1 million in the 22314 zip code wich is Old Town Alexandria VA. A similar chart is created for properties over a million. I have been tracking this information weekly for a year now. Every Tuesday I input these values on this spreadsheet, in doing so I am able to see the trends in this particular market and for this price bracket. The information is taken from the MLS or multiple listing services. Active and under contract values can not be extracted later as there is no way for the MLS to record those values at a specific time.  General market information comes up on the 10th of every month and shows last month's information which could be considered  obsolete in some cases. By updating this information weekly you can clearly see the...
