By this time next week, we will be in March, friends.

What a winter it has been — and it has certainly kept us on our toes. With a nice warm stretch ahead, hopefully the worst of our frigid worries are behind us.

And, on that note, it’s a wonderful time to start looking ahead and planning for the springtime.

Among your March home priorities, make sure to examine your decking and gutters. Amid our recent snow-filled, freezing and/or windy days, there is bound to be some gunk that’s laying around. There is no time like the present to ensure that debris doesn’t become a major headache, so clean ’em out. While you’re at it, your roof and home’s siding could likely use an inspection, too.

Ole Man Winter may have left your home a little shook, but a little TLC will get it back into top shape in no time. And, when you’re ready to explore a new home (or sell yours!), the time-tested team at Arlington Realty, Inc. is ready to roll on your behalf.

Let’s dive in to this week’s Just Reduced figures…

As of Feb. 22, there are 83 detached homes, 25 townhouses and 289 condos for sale throughout Arlington County. In total, 21 homes experienced a price reduction in the past week, including:

This regularly-scheduled sponsored Q&A column is written by Eli Tucker, Arlington-based realtor and Arlington resident. Please submit your questions to him via email for response in future columns. Enjoy!

Answer: Thank you to the ARLnow reader who brought Virginia House Bill 1842 to my attention because it’s likely to be a game-changing law. This bill will allow condo boards to more easily ban smoking inside units and on balconies — not just in common areas. As of Feb. 17, 2021, the bill passed the Virginia House and Senate and, per my conversation with staff of the bill’s sponsor, Delegate Mark Keam, it’s now on its way to the Governor’s desk to become Virginia law as of July 1, 2021.

This is incredible news for many condo owners and residents who have suffered from the health and environmental hazards of a neighbor who smokes inside their unit or on their balcony. Over the years, I’ve written more about condo smoking bans than any other non-market topic because of how much interest and positive feedback I receive on the topic — so much that I hosted a panel discussion about it in 2019.

A full summary of the bill is shared below, but the key text from the bill includes, “…the executive board of a condominium unit owners’ association to establish reasonable rules that restrict smoking in the condominium, including rules that prohibit smoking in the common elements and within units…”

Under current laws, a smoking ban within units can only be done by way of a formal bylaw amendment, which can be overly burdensome for most communities and take years to see through. The only “easy” smoking ban allowed by law was a ban in general common areas. Even limited common areas (e.g. balconies) require a bylaw change under the current laws.

I am no legal expert, and I’m sure the language in the bill can be interpreted a number of different ways, but this bill seems to give condo boards/owners a very good chance of banning smoking within units. I’d love to hear from any readers who have the legal background to interpret just how likely or unlikely the language in this bill is to allow complete smoking bans.
