Leesburg, VA Real Estate News

I attended the Leesburg Flower and Garden Festival this weekend and was very impressed.  It was with utter amazement that I walked by the designers who brought landscape designs to King Street that looked like they have been in your backyard for years. The plants were fabulous as well as the garden related gift vendors....I was a big supporter of the Orchid Stand buying one of the gorgeous purple hanging orchids below.... If you are thinking about going next year, don't miss this once a year festival...its well worth the $3 to attend!     To search for homes in VA - visit:  www.myvadreamhome.com

These are real estate statistics ending March 2009.. You are probably asking yourself..what does it all mean?   These are representing changes from the same time last year basically.  You will notice that the dollar amount, sold, had decreased , while the total units sold  has increased since last year.  The median sale price has dropped by 31%.  Prices have dropped dramatically, and interesting, days on market  has increased, in most areas we are seeing a decrease in this number... so the bottom line 6.9% more homes sold, for less money and they are staying on the market longer.  For more information on Real Estate in Leesburg, Virginia..

I've been looking forward to this event for an entire year...last year I drove into Leesburg finding this festival by mistake...had my two dogs with me and was on my way home from riding my horses...Grabbed my dogs and went to the gates only to find out "no dogs allowed"...needless to say I was really bummed.  It was late in the day on Sunday, so I left and figured I'd have to make it this year... So, here it is a year later...and I'm not missing this event...if you get a chance swing by!  There will be landscape displays, garden designers, plenty of vendors to buy flowers, plants, shrubs, trees, gifts, garden art themes and sculptures.... The Festival runs from 10-6pm on Sat. and 10-5pm on Sunday.  Here is link for details, directions and maps:  http://www.idalee.org/parks/events/Flowe...

MAJOR BUILDERS KNOW THAT PRESERVING TREES WHEN DEVELOPING A SITE PLAN WILL HELP SELL HOMES. BUILDING ON PASTURE LAND.  Builders or developers often have little opportunity to preserve trees in a new home community.  Often the land being developed is former farm land was cleared 100 years ago and has been used for pasture or crops over the years. THE GOAL IS TO SAVE TREES.  When we find a piece of land that is zoned for development, the developer must determine what can be done to preserve as much wooded stock as possible while maximizing the number of bailable lots that they can sell.  Heavily wooded land is more expensive to develop and builders often clear just enough to accommodate homes.  The trend over the past 10 years or so has been to preserve as many trees as possible, even in ...

I was driving home from work one evening when I was fortunate enough to be able to stop at the light so I could take this picture.  I was in my neighborhood of Lansdowne on the corner of Lansdowne Blvd and Riverside Parkway.  I thought the colors were so pretty, I just pulled out the camera, rolled down the window and took this picture.

The Spring Lakes neighborhood is located just off of Fort Evans Rd.  For commuting purposes, you're close enough to Rte 15 and Rte 7 but yet not close enough that you see and hear the cars whizzing by.  Shopping is convenient too.  Bloom and Giant are just a quick ride away.  If you prefer Harris Teeter, it's a little further away and for all of you Wegman's fans, there will be a new one in November '09 at the intersection of Rte 7 and Rivercreek Parkway. You'll find both single family homes and townhomes in Spring Lakes.                           The neighborhood amenities include tot lots and a pool. Looking for a summer swim team for the kids?  You'll find it here too!                 Currently, the Spring Lakes Homeowners Association is being managed by Armstrong Management.  Click...

We had, what we in northern Virginia, call a snowstorm....maybe 2 inches of snow fell. And as is the norm here, traffic came to a standstill.   The storm moved out just as the sun was setting and left us with a beautiful sunset.  I took this pictures from the back of my home in Lansdowne.

If you are dealing with bank owned properties make sure that your buyer is protected and not responsible to pay to have the house dewinterized for home inspection and walkthrough and rewinterize after home inspection.  I just came across this and it came up in our negotiations with the seller.  Make sure you ask the seller's agent who is responsible to to pay for this expense before you write the offer.  These kind of surprises are not easy to deal with.

Home Sweet Home...Home Improvement is one of the smartest investments a homeowner can make - and is many times overlooked. Yes there is dust, dirt but the end result will be well worth the inconvenience. With real estate in such turmoil many are choosing to remodel and renovate Northern Virginia homes - their own homes. Give your home a ”facelift” or makeover that provides an updated or new look, while not uprooting your family to a new location (i.e. no need to move!). Here's a truly inspiring example of a home renovation in the Leesburg Historic district and Great Falls - both the "before" and "after" pictures. The "Miles Carriage House" in Leesburg received a commendation from the Town of Leesburg for outstanding adherence to historical design standards. Architectural Construction pr...

CPR and First Aid Classes are the things that often fly by the radar. There aren't many of us who think, "No, I don't want to learn that. It's useless". While there are some who mayhesitate to take action, or "freeze" in the moment, most agree that knowledge is power, and that they'd like to learn it.   The problem is, of course, finding time, or thinking of it when you have the time. Then, when you have the time, and think to research it, you see that the American Red Cross no longer offers this traniing in Loudoun County, and the American Heart Association refers you to somebody in Maryland. It becomes challenging.   Are you looking for the easiest option? You can learn CPR any time, any day. I'm not referring to the classes on the internet (although it is an option). I can bring the ...
