The days are getting shorter and cooler - enjoy some hot cider, pumpkin picking and a high school football game (or college road trip!).  I personally LOVE to run during this time of the year and like spending time on the W&OD bike path and C&O Canal - as the leaves are GORGEOUS once they begin to change colors.

Now that the weather is a bit more pleasant - it's time to assess how your home looks and feels from the inside out.  If you need to get some deferred maintenance taken care of before the winter, NOW IS THE TIME.  And - if you've been thinking about getting some rooms painted before the holidays to welcome family and friends - OCTOBER is a GREAT month to make a few updates.  Please feel free to reach out to me for your home needs...  or check out the photos on my Facebook page from the Design Show I attended in September at the Dulles Expo Center:   


[HINT:  You DON'T need to just paint your home GRAY to make it appealing!!!] 


PRO tips for residential home buyers & sellers:

  • BUYERS - (assuming you need a loan to pay for a home) - Interest rates are definitely rising - but now might be the time to consider getting a seller to help you buy down your interest rate.  Let's talk about how that negotiation strategy could work - there are still some "buyer markets" in the Northern VA area, despite the fact that "inventory" is supposedly low.  
  • SELLERS - Buyers looking during this time of the year are generally SERIOUS.  Your home needs to STAND OUT to get a good offer.  Before you even consider putting your home on the market... lets discuss what steps/budget are appropriate to update your home to appeal to as many buyers as possible.
