Home Buyer Rebates Give You Cash Back in Powhatan County VAWant more money in your pocket for closing? How about being able to afford a bigger/nicer Powhatan County VA home? Now Equity First Realty Gives YOU Cash Back Buyer Rebates at ClosingBuyer rebates give you cash back at closing. If you have ever wondered how cash back rebates work for real estate, here is the inside scoop…When real estate agents sell a property, they usually collect a commission of between 2.5% and 3% of the property's gross sales price. So, on a $300,000 house, that would mean a commission of $9,000.00 to the selling broker. But many of today's home buyers are clearly willing and (with the Internet) able to search for and locate their own properties without relying on the agent to find houses for sale for them. ...

I am a huge reader and never thought I would give up books for a Kindle/Nook/e-reader but I am officially in love with my Kindle App on my iPad.  I read so much and generally got books from yard sales, library books sales and used book stores because I would have been broke if I had paid "list price."  Then I discovered that I can CHECK EBOOKS OUT FROM MY LIBRARY!! ....Sorry for shouting but I get very excited about free stuff!   At my local Powhatan County Library I can check out books from the Blue Ridge Consortium, Freading which is an app for your iPad and my son and I love the books from TumbleBooks.  They have storybooks that are read out loud with moving pictures.  The words being read are highlighted so your child can follow along.  Nathaniel just turned 6 and we spent about 2 ...

Powhatan County Library is having a Book Sale!  Very few things make my heart go pitter pat like the words "Library Book Sale."  I am a huge reader and love to have my bookshelves overflowing.  The stager in me tries to make the shelves look nice, but the reader tends to trump that and I have a ton a books stacked up high. The sale is 9-5 on the 27th of April and 10-3 on Saturday April 28th. Saturday is also $5 for a bag of books!  You can't beat that! I hope to see you there......I'll be the one with the long arms from carrying so many books!

My son Zachary is starting school tomorrow at his new elementary school in Powhatan, Virginia.  My husband and I are building a new home on our lot in Powhatan Virginia but our house isn't ready to move into yet.  We didn't want Zachary to have to switch schools mid year so we are going to putting some miles on my "MommyVan" in the coming months! I am sure that many parents deal with similar issues when they buy a new home in a new school district.  We are lucky that his new school, Pocahontas Elementary School is only about 45 minutes away from our home in Windsor Park in Chesterfield.  It is possible to take him to school there and then pick him up after if we need too, plus we are building on family land so we can spend a few days a week with my in-laws.  If we were moving farther aw...
