MyFairRidgeHome.com INTRODUCTION Happy Holidays ! We hope everyone has a relaxing and enjoyable time with your family and friends this holidays ! Nothing worth noting has happened to Fair Ridge this past week which is common around this time of year. Look for things to pick up in late January with the spring season right around the corner and with the interest rates being so low forcing people to buy. So it looks like we will not have a white christmas here in Virginia :( I was up in New York last weekend and they had about 8 of snow and it snowed all day Saturday which was beautiful. Sunday on the other hand rained all day. Go figure. But we still had fun. About 15 of us went up and got a hotel room for the night in Times Square. It was fun to get away for the weekend but way to much h...

In conjunction with my new listing at 4948 Gainsborough Drive in Kings Park West I have updated my original Kings Park post from Feb 2008.  It isn't hard to figure out what the developer of the first Kings Park was planning when they laid out the plan for the community and the homes. With one look at the street names Thames, Victoria, Trafalgar and Cromwell among others you might think you have made a trip back to England. Then when you add the names of the five original models; King, Queen, Princess, Duke and Duchess, you realize absolutely there is a royal connection!     My family bought our very first home in Kings Park in 1981. Having just returned from five years overseas we were anxious to settle down for awhile and having grown up in Springfield it was an easy choice to make the...

FYI - (these tips in this first time homebuyers series are not just for newbies/first time homebuyers)   Shopping for a mortgage can be such a confusing process, even for those that have bought a home or refinanced previously. And in this first time homebuyers series, the biggest thing that I can't stress is the ability to pick that loan officer who will have your best interest at stake.  I don't want this to be a debatable subject. There can be arguments based on : Make sure you get the loan officer through a referral  (you can find people on the internet, such as myself - just be careful of such services that promise companies that will fight for you to give you the best rate) Make sure that the loan officer is local  (this gets debated often - in regards to myself, about 80% of my bu...
