Real Estate Tax Rumor Outlasts Mayan Calendar
Hamed Gargasht (Gargasht Team, Keller Williams Realty of Northern Virginia)

Lorton Station Lorton Va Homes for Sale

Having survived last week’s End of the World, you might think the coast would be clear for a while. But -- at least when it comes to Lorton Station Lorton real estate matters -- some would have you believe we are face-to-face with another extreme dire threat: the Internet buzz about a (gasp!) huge new federal sales tax on all real estate transactions.

This one was all over the web even before passage of the federal health care act. It has staying power, and comes in several forms. The one that circulates most often is an email message warning that a 3.8% Medicare surtax that is going to hit “average, middle-class investors” on January 1. Supposedly ALL real estate transactions are subject to the tax “no matter how low their income might be…”

If Lorton Station Lorton real estate holders (in other words, most of us) are more than a little skeptical about this supposed mega-tax, you can understand why. The End of the World was also an Internet rumor, but now that it’s clear the Mayans found a whole new calendar behind the last page of their old one (giving us a welcome 5,125-year reprieve), everyone is duly cautious about these dire email warnings.

Now, I’m neither a tax attorney nor CPA, so I don’t offer tax advice -- but I can tell you that you will be relieved if you visit any of the fact-checking resources (they survived the End of the World, too!). There you will find that only a tiny percentage of Lorton Station Lorton real estate home sellers would ever fall under the new tax. It touches the extreme opposite of “average, middle class” homeowners. To even qualify for the tax, a couple has to have an income exceeding a quarter of a million dollars a year (before profits from real estate are counted). Even then, when a couple sells their personal residence, the sale has to clear $500,000 of profit before the tax would apply; ($250,000 for individual filers).

Clients who might be affected by the new tax don’t need an Internet rumor to tell them to seek expert tax advice! So if you are preparing to sell in 2013, don’t let the Web trouble you: give me a call!

When a Kitchen Shines, Lorton Station Real Estate Agents Beam
Hamed Gargasht (Gargasht Team, Keller Williams Realty of Northern Virginia)

Lorton Station Lorton, VA Homes for Sale

Keeping control of your kitchen is one of the most basic actions you can take to help your real estate agent sell your home. The execution can be simple when it’s approached systematically.

Especially during winter, kitchen control can seem an all but unmanageable task. Days are shorter; kids or pets may be cooped up inside; and everyone tracks winter through the kitchen all day long.  To help you keep your kitchen looking great (and your Lorton Station Lorton real estate agent beaming), some simple preparation is needed. That, plus sticking to a simple routine, will turn the impossible into a ‘done deal.’

  • Put appliances and gadgets away as soon as you use them. According to Realtor.com, removing the least frequently used items from kitchen counters is a proven way to make a home more inviting. Include items like can openers and coffee pots.  Flowers and a few cookbooks, though, are welcome to stay.
  • Spot-check nightly: More times than not, you will find items you missed putting away or cleaning during the busy part of your day. It’s easy to miss crumbs on the counter or dirt on the floor when you are trying to get out of the door for work or a meeting.
  • Consider eating pre-prepared meals (or ordering delivery) during periods when you know you will be actively showing the house (like the first two weeks on the market!). This will help with kitchen cleanliness, leave less work for you, and have the significant side effect of making the selling process less crazy-making. Cost a bit extra? Uncle Sam won’t think so, but for yourself, consider it a worthwhile business expense.

Every Lorton Station Lorton real estate agent will agree that kitchens are a key selling point these days, so the effort you put into kitchen control is one of the top ways you have of bringing in top dollar for your Lorton Station Lorton home.  Another way — one I’m happy to offer — is to call me! I am here to help you make the most of every step of the selling process.

George Washington May Not Have Slept Here
Karen Kruschka, - "My Experience Isn't Expensive - It's PRICELESS" (RE/MAX Real Estate Connections)
But I'll Bet If He Dozed Off Occasionally He Was Nudged By George Mason

Pohick Church and historic marker

Geroge Mason IV, a highly respected Virginia patriot, was also a member of Pohick Church. Although not as nationally famous as his fellow vestryman and friend, George Washington, George Mason IV (1725-1792) authored the Virginia Declaration of Rights. It was eventually incorporated into the Virginia Constitution. For example, Article 1 read "That all men are by nature equally free and independent and have certain inherent rights, of which, when they enter into a state of society, they cannot, by any compact, deprive or divest their posterity; namely, the enjoyment of life and liberty, with the means of acquiring and possessing property, and pursuing and obtaining happiness and safety."

Why is this of interest? Many of the guarantees of the document were incorporated into the Declaration of Independence and the US Bill of Rights. Thomas Jefferson referred to him as "a man of the first order of wisdom".

This historic church is as lovely today as it was in the eighteenth century. It is in Lorton just south of Fort Belvoir on US Route 1 which is pretty much the same route the Washingtons would have traveled from Mount Vernon for worship services

The church is still home to an active Episcopal congregation as it was when Washington, Mason and Fairfax attended. The church and grounds are impeccably maintained. As was typical of the day there is an attached cemetery with many very old grave markers.
