haymarket homes for sale: Don't Forget the National Cherry Blossom Festival - 04/12/14 02:21 PM
I wrote about the National Cherry Blossom Festival a few weeks ago, indicating they should be blooming soon. In fact, the bloom was a bit delayed this year because of our very cold winter but they are in FULL BLOOM RIGHT NOW!
To learn more about this wonderful Springtime Event in our Nations Capital, I would suggest you go to the National Cherry Blossom Festival website. The information shared on the website is most useful and this weekend is packed full of wonderful Springtime Weather. So why not venture out to see the spectacular blossoms.

Fairfax County Virginia is truly a great place to live and a wonderful place to explore. There is so much to do and see by way of fun stuff and historical value. Allow me to also add that exploring history can really be fun!!!

In fact, the site contains many, many different things to do and see in Fairfax County.

haymarket homes for sale: A Note Of Appreciation For A Local Vendor - 03/30/14 10:02 AM
Today I would like to give a note of appreciation for a local vendor.
I always like to share about good experiences I have with Local Vendors in the Gainesville VA Homes For Sale area. 
A couple of weeks ago our Washing Machine quit working. While it would agitate during the wash cycle it wouldn't empty, spin or rinse. I phoned HomeSure of Virginia (our Home Warranty Company) who in turned notified All Star Appliance Service in Warrenton.
In a nutshell, All Star Appliance gave us an appointment for the next business day, arrived on time and fixed the problem in about 30 minutes. I … (4 comments)

haymarket homes for sale: It's Almost Spring - 03/17/14 03:45 PM
It's almost Spring, March 17, 2014, but you wouldn't know it by how Northern Virginia looks today. In Gainesville, Virginia, we woke up to nearly a foot of snow, temperatures in the low to mid 20s and most employers telling employees to spend the day at home.
My wife went out and snapped some pictures around our house and the neighborhood. There is even one or two of me cleaning off the car that I left outside in the weather last evening.

haymarket homes for sale: Information About Paying Down Your Mortgage - 03/03/14 09:12 AM
As a Real Estate Agent, I'm often asked Mortgage Questions. For example: "Can I pay off my Mortgage early?" "If I have two Mortgages, which one should I pay off first?" "How much of my payment is going toward paying down what I owe?" Actually, the list is unending.
Most important, my first response when someone asks me Mortgage questions is always: "You need to talk with your Bank or perhaps your Loan Officer." Why? I am not a Mortgage Professional - I am a Realtor®!
On the other hand, since I'm not a Mortgage Professional, let me direct you to a great … (7 comments)

haymarket homes for sale: Remember It Is Safety First When Using The Clothes Dryer - 02/17/14 01:17 PM
I am anything but an expert when it comes to Clothes Dryers. I know that I use ours on a regular basis, can put the clothes in, turn the dryer on, dry them and take them out - even hanging them up and folding them! (I know, you are probably thinking David deserves a gold star...)A question I have had in the past, but no more, is How can I know our dryer vent is in good repair? Even more specific, how can I know it is NOT a Fire Hazard?
I found out the answer to the above questions is simple: For me, … (6 comments)

haymarket homes for sale: A True Story About The Value Of A Home Inspection - 02/05/14 03:30 PM
A while back, I had clients that put an offer on a home that turned into a Contract for their first house. They were excited to say the least. In fact, the word "Excited" is probably an understatement.
In the weeks that preceded their contract, I had spoken with them about the need for a Home Inspection. I indicated that sometimes there are issues with a house the average person would simply never see or understand. Better to know about serious issues before the purchase than after you move in.
My clients listened and asked for a Home Inspection & Contingency. The Inspector … (8 comments)

haymarket homes for sale: A Big Shout Out To Arctic Sun Heating & Air Conditioning - 01/23/14 03:58 PM
Last night we had an interesting event at our house. At 7:30 in the evening, we realized our house was getting cold (62 degrees) because our furnace wasn't working. The temperature outdoors was 9 degrees Fahrenheit and again, we suddenly were without heat and the inside temperature was dropping fast.
I quickly called Arctic Sun Heating & Air Conditioning, a company we have a Club Member Plan with and have had servicing our Heating and Air Conditioning for over six years. I left a Voice message and within five minutes had a return call saying the technician was on his way.  … (5 comments)

haymarket homes for sale: A Restaurant Worth Experiencing In Haymarket Virginia - 01/15/14 01:17 PM
Haymarket Virginia rests on the fringe of Northern Virginia but yet has a bit of a Small Town, almost Country like feel to it. One of the reasons I enjoy Haymarket is the variety of Shops, Restaurants and even a Haymarket Museum. 
Last Monday morning I had a meeting in Linden and decided to stop by one of my favorite restaurants, Cupcake Heaven And Cafe in Haymarket. While the restaurant has lunch and other wonderful food, the Cupcakes are sensational. Their name truly says it all.
Needless to say, the people I met with in Linden were thrilled with the Cupcakes I brought … (4 comments)

I'm sure many of my clients and prospective clients are seriously thinking about retirement and even more specifically, "When should I retire? How much should I save? How will I know if/when I've truly saved enough?"

If you haven't started getting ready for the future, perhaps there is no time like the present to begin. I wish you well.
