DMV Fall Must Do Home Maintenance Tips

Simple Fall tasks can save you from more expensive repairs over the next few months and will keep your DC metro home in great shape.

1. Take care of hoses and faucets: Disconnect your hoses before the freezing temperatures arrive, because they can cause water to back up in your faucets and eventually cause the plumbing to crack.  If possibble, shut off the valves for your exterior faucets.

2. Winterize the lawn mower: Either run the mower dry, or use a fuel stabilizer to prevent the gas in your mower from degrading and damaging the engine.

3. Clean the gutters: Twigs and leaves will build up in your gutters throughout the fall. Make sure to clean the gutters before there’s heavy snow, because the weight of both the leaves and the melting snow could cause the gutters to break away from the house. This winter in Washington DC metro areas are expected to have a large snow fall accumulation.

4. Get the furnace ready: Your best bet is to call in a professional to give the furnace a tune up, but at the very least you should change the filters. Find a good company, check your county’s best of best list.

5. Inspect the roof: As snow accumulates and melts from your roof, it can cause major water damage if the roof isn’t in good shape. Look for loose shingles, rust, moss—anything that could lead to decay or water damage. It’s best to be proactive with your roof repairs can be extremely expensive—so don’t hesitate to call a roofing professional if necessary. It’s worth it in the long run!

USDA and the Rural Housing Service (RHS) has available funds in its Section 502 Direct Loan Program that must be used by September 30, 2015 for buyers that want to live away from the city.  The Washington DC field office reported : “As of August 13, 2015, RHS has enough to fund approximately 2,500 additional home loans.”   

This is a loan for buyers in Non city areas- “rural areas” whose adjusted income does not exceed 80 percent of the area median. There is no down payment requirement and the interest rate are really low. Areas like Warren County, Culpeper,  Orange County, Page County, Rappahanock County, Front Royal and Linden, Virginia should  qualify for this program. Some parts of Fauquier County Catlett, Warrenton and Marshall may qualify. Rural parts of Maryland Counties may also qualify such as North Western Montgomery County, Brunswick to Middletown and Parts of Carroll County, MD.

DMV, DC, MD, VA, Climbing Real Estate Taxes

headed upA climbing market is great news to homeowners but keep in mind, with growing sales prices comes higher taxes.  Eager buyers and motivated sellers have jump started the market this year in the DMV areas DC, MD, and Northern VA.

Homeowners be prepared and take this as a warning your real estate taxes could be should be going up soon.   Data released Monday from MRIS show that greater inventory and modest prices have driven sales from Jan to April.  Areas like DC have a lack of inventory and is experiencing more bidding wars. With all of this comes more sales, more comps, more appreciation, higher prices, and then higher taxes….

The jump you see will depend on your location and how often taxes are assessed in your area but just note you may receive a notice in the mail..

Do not let it bother or worry you it is usually just a small jump in payment.

How to Get Rid of Ghost

If you have sold a haunted house here is some info to pass on to the homeowners!!!!! I live down the street from a cemetary so I am always ghost sensitive. Now living in Northern Virginia this land is war land and comes with many rumors of sitiings and apparitions all though I have yet to witness this first hand I want to be prepared. I bought my home new and as an agent I know that In Virginia we DO NOT have to disclose stigmatized properties.

Stigmatized property is a term used in the real estate business which describes possible detrimental features of a property or home, all the result of unfortunate occurrences. These can include murder, suicide, and the belief or proof that a house may be haunted by real ghosts. Just in case I will be ready. Here is a remedy for getting rid of Ghost!!!! Hopefully you and I will never need it!
