Before we dive in to real estate here, it’s been an emotional week or so for so many Americans. Our thoughts continue to be with Houston, the Southeast United States and our friends in the Caribbean. Additionally, the 16th anniversary of 9/11 was on Monday – a day I certainly will never forget.

Everyone impacted has been at the top of my thoughts.

As we enter the peak of hurricane season, it is important to be prepared — perhaps not specifically for a hurricane (though we’ve been impacted in times past) — but a disaster in general. Many of the same disaster preparedness items you’d buy to prep for a hurricane may be used for any type of situation.

A good starting point to build your own preparedness kit is at Ready.gov.

In addition to helping you find a home, I’m always here to help you make the most of living here in Arlington. And having some emergency items on-hand for you, your family and home certainly can’t hurt.

As of September 11 there are 245 detached homes, 69 townhouses and 292 condos for sale throughout Arlington County. In total, 64 homes experienced a price reduction in the past week.

Labor Day is in the books… which means Fall is just around the corner.

In our neck of the woods, autumn equates to cooler temperatures (finally!), beautiful foliage and an opportune time to check-up on some key home features before Ol’ Man Winter shows his ugly face.

Long before we get another Snowmageddon, now is a great time to:

  • Check window sealings for cracks. You’ll want to ensure you have an airtight abode to keep the cool air out come wintertime!
  • Clean out the garage. Don’t pick a hot day (now) or cold day (later) to do this. Pick a nice Fall day and thank me later.
  • Give your deck some love. Extreme temps (hot or cold) can do a number on your deck. If you’ve been holding off on staining or sealing your deck, get moving before winter attacks!
  • Hopefully you’ll GET MORE out of your home with these tips. And if you’re still looking for a home in our area, give me and my team a shout and we’ll help you GET MORE out of your transaction, too.

As of September 5 there are 225 detached homes, 61 townhouses and 266 condos for sale throughout Arlington County. In total, 46 homes experienced a price reduction in the past week.

Believe it or not… the first day of September is Friday.

Pretty crazy, right?

If you’re like most folks, you’ll have off on Monday for Labor Day. While many opt to relax and spend time with loved ones on Labor Day, some folks embark on a full-fledged bargain hunt. And, who can really blame them… there are some stellar deals out there.

September is traditionally the best month of the year to buy a new bicycle – this is because most major bike brands unveil their newest models in September, leaving older models deeply discounted (just like cars).

One of my favorite hobbies is cycling around our beautiful town and its extensive trail systems, so I’m hoping I’ll catch you out on the paths soon, perhaps aboard a new bike!

And, as for the discounted homes in our area, here is the latest scoop:

As of August 28 there are 228 detached homes, 59 townhouses and 275 condos for sale throughout Arlington County. In total, 41 homes experienced a price reduction in the past week.

“A $50,000 reduction on a $2 million home isn’t that good of a bargain!”

As we’re now in our second year of “Just Reduced,” it’s among the most common feedback our team receives – that the reductions listed just aren’t that significant and you’re not saving that much off the original price of a home.

On that note: A friendly reminder that a home’s listing price (whether reduced or not) is really only the beginning.

A reduced price home can signify that a seller is more willing to negotiate and may be under immediate pressure/a time constraint to sell a home. That’s why this column exists – to highlight the homes that are moving, shaking and are potentially ready to fly off the shelves in our area.

But beyond the initial price – whatever it may be – you’ll need a trusted agent to help you settle for the absolute best price (and parameters) possible in the end. And that’s where our team is always happy to help you GET MORE out of your purchase.

As of August 22, there are 235 detached homes, 55 townhouses and 274 condos for sale throughout Arlington County. In total, 63 homes experienced a price reduction in the past week.

According to a new study, “contemporary” is now the décor style of choice here in Virginia.

The furniture company Joybird, recently analyzed search data on the most popular décor type in each state and while Alaska goes the Bohemian route, Michigan prefers an industrial vibe and Wyoming is all about a Western look, apparently we like to keep things pretty modern in the commonwealth.

Looking at the contemporary construction elements that are becoming more omnipresent with Arlington County abodes and the way many homes are being staged, this totally makes sense. From chic condos to renovated townhouses to modern single-family homes, a lot of families are opting for “modern” over a more traditional feel. And contemporary decor complements these spots perfectly.

As always, when you’re ready to explore the Arlington real estate landscape, give me a shout. We’ll GET MORE out of your search and transaction, regardless of how you ultimately decide to decorate your spot.

As of August 15 there are 239 detached homes, 57 townhouses and 270 condos for sale throughout Arlington County. In total, 34 homes experienced a price reduction in the past week.

With summer coming to a close, one of my favorite events in Arlington is just around the corner.

The Arlington County Fair is back for another year. The 2017 installment takes place from August 16 through 20 at the Thomas Jefferson Community Center. The hours vary daily, so you’ll want to check out the fair’s website for the full scoop.

It’s always a great experience, especially for local families as the school year approaches. There are exhibits and entertainment galore, including an indoor marketplace that I’ve participated in years past.

For a great taste of all we have to offer here in Arlington, I highly recommend it. And when you’re ready to take that love for Arlington to the next level and call our county home, I’m here to help you GET MORE out of your transaction.

We’re in the dog days of summer here.

We’ve almost made it through July and August is shaping up to be just as steamy. And just as the temps are hot, there are some hot, home-related bargains to be had in August that should be on your radar.

Traditionally, August is a great month to buy outdoor and patio furniture at slashed prices. Sure, you may only have a few months to use your new outdoor items before they are covered in snow. But, you’ll love them in the meantime!

Also, with back-to-school season about to be in full force, it’s a great time to stock up on household items like tissues and paper towels. If your kids need something for school and it’s something you regularly use around the house, now is not the time to be bashful.

As always, we’re always looking for ways for you to GET MORE out of living here in Arlington County. And, if it’s a home you need, we always have your back.

As of July 25 there are 231 detached homes, 53 townhouses and 270 condos for sale throughout Arlington County. In total, 55 homes experienced a price reduction in the past week.

Mark your calendars, fellow parents! The first day of school for Arlington Public Schools is September 5, meaning that back-to-school time is right around the corner.

In addition to purchasing school supplies galore and getting the kids’ wardrobes ready to go, now is not a bad time to get your home prepped for back-to-school season, too. When it comes to having your house optimized, organization is key.

If you have an extra (or under-utilized) closet, a dedicated closet for your kids’ go-to items can be a game changer. It can be a great place to store their favorite jackets and lunch boxes on hooks, books on shelves and school supplies in easily accessible bins. Outside of this idea, there are plenty of additional ways to optimize your space contingent on your floor plan.

If you’re still looking for a home to settle into ahead of the new school year, it’s not too late. Let me know how I can help you GET MORE out of your transaction before settling in and kicking off a new, exciting school year for your family! 

As of July 18 there are 250 detached homes, 50 townhouses and 266 condos for sale throughout Arlington County. In total, 48 homes experienced a price reduction in the past week.

With June coming to a close, we’re halfway through 2017.

Pretty wild, right?

It’s a perfect time to check in on those “New Years Resolutions” and 2017 goals – how are they coming along? Perhaps your goal of hitting the gym seven days a week did not play out too well.

But, if you still have aspirations for homeownership in 2017, it’s not too late.

With summer in full force, local families are prepping and selling their homes, in an effort to settle in to a new spot before the 2017-2018 school year. We’ll likely see an influx of homes here in the coming weeks, meaning more options for you, the homebuyer.

To all of the Dads out there, here’s to a happy Father’s Day this weekend!

As the proud Dad of two awesome kids, we look forward to making the most of it. And, as a son, I am forever grateful to my Dad (Ike, who so many of you knew and loved) for being an amazing mentor and father.

One of the many, many duties of being a parent is ensuring your home meets your family’s needs. Your living situation can be completely different, whether you are living single, just getting married, have a toddler, or have a full house.

Wherever you may be in your journey of fatherhood, I’m here to help you get more out of your home, if and when you’re ever looking for a new spot for your family. But, in the meantime, here’s to a wonderful and relaxing weekend!

As of June 12 there are 245 detached homes, 55 townhouses and 267 condos for sale throughout Arlington County. In total, 68 homes experienced a price reduction in the past week.
