Real Estate topics concerning Northern Virginia, D.C. and the nation.
One of the best preserved Colonial Mansions in America, and George Washington really did sleep here many times, is for sale.  A quote from the article in today's Washington Post by David Boyce, Executive Director of Long Branch Historic House and Farm: "It is probably one of the most significant ...
Obviously, you would want to consult your tax professional in regard to your personal situation. I found this article valuable to me as I just had a conversation with my tax adviser on the same subject yesterday. If you are planning on taking out a mortgage, refinancing, or just trying to figure ...
There has been a lot of gossip on the looming real estate tax to pay for health care reform, not to mention the proposed phase out of the MID (Mortgage Interest Deduction). The MID is an uphill battle and I suspect, if it is enacted, will fall under the income parameters of the 3.8% tax for real ...
The report looks at cities with a 200,000 plus population. The D.C. area isn't among the top 10 highest or the top ten lowest. However, 2011 looks like another year of opportunity to buy a home, despite local year over year (November to November) increase in prices. The Fed is keeping interest ra...
Whoopie! It feels like Spring in January here in the frigid D.C. area. I have two clients I am working with that may decide to rent hoping that they can better afford a home in a couple of years.

I don't live or work in Massachusetts but the ruling by the State Supreme Court against Wells Fargo and U.S. BanCorp will likely make the whole foreclosure process a prickly process nationwide. I am unable to explain this better than the article so here it is for you to read and decide.
Ok, so 4% was really unrealistic from an historic perspective. The site sees rates at 5.02% as of yesterday based on their survey. If you are serious about buying a home in the Northern Virginia area keep these two facts in mind: Interest rates are more likely to continue going UP th...
I recently read that there were 200,000 jobs listed on (and .gov) but there were something like 29 million people registered on the site looking for jobs with the feds. A daunting task if you only look at the numbers. In today's mullet wrapper (The Washington Post) an article written ...
I have been preaching about this for awhile. Today's Washington Post states that D.C., along with Los Angeles, San Diego, and San Francisco are the only major metropolitan areas with an increase in home prices. Add to that the creeping (upward) interest rate and the cost of housing could rise sig...
