 My Identical Twin Peggy decided it was time to call Potomac Shores HomeHere at TwinsSellingRealEstate.com Potomac Shores is one of our favorite communities to sell. In fact, Peggy  and her husband Bill purchased a hone thier earlier this month.I knew from the moment I walked these homes before the public even knew there would be a community that this was something special. Now 2.5 years later with over 280+ homes sold I was right! The floor plans are an open concept which was no small feat considering the size of some of these home. Close attention was paid by the architects to eliminate as many walls as possible. They also created a Front Porch community where every home has  a Welcoming Porch elevation.

As one of the hottest selling communities in Northern Virginia, it draws quite a bit of online attention. In fact, my last three buyers came from reading my blog updates.

All had purchased home previously and knew it cost them nothing to have me work on their behalf and truly believed I could help them navigate all the decisions they would need to make. Today I got to spend the entire day on the site.My first appointment was  finishing up with my relocating buyer who is purchasing an NV Home.

My client is a Wounded Warrior with injuries sustained in Iraq.  He had several specific requirements that were important to satisfy for his comfort in his new home.During our extensive seaching and looking at property a home came on the market that was a perfect fit.Additionally, it was a short distance from a home he was renting. - no need to learn a new area.Of course, he made an immediate purchase offer and we went to closing in a month. The key to a quick settlement was due entirely to having pre-approval before we looked at homes.Arthur and I have served his family for three decades - I feel doubly priviledged to assist a known client family as well as an American patriot.Over the past three decades the Kruschkas have helped military men, women and their families relocate to and f...

You know you are going to be moving soon. Your home will be VACANT during the selling period. You fear the expenses will add up fast.(Utilities, HOA fee's, taxes,mortgage payments, cleaning lady and now lawn care) You know the condition is good. Everyone says it is a great house. You are not willing to stage the house. You cannot afford that right expense You are willing to clean it, move everything out and hire a cleaning lady. You can't change the location, it is what it is. You are not willing to make any changes in the house. You have to move. You do not have help from a relocation company. You are on your own for selling. More and more homes are coming on the market and  the competition is brisk. Now the challenging part. Your home is in an Adult Community and or Gated Community he...

  Why would  you want me to be your Buyer Agent when you buy a New Home home at Potomac Shores ,Virginia? As a buyer agent I am your Coach, Advocate, Sounding Board. I love working with buyers and I cost you nothing but can save you thousands!   Sure you can buy a new home on your own without help. The buyers who I have worked with said they could not have imagined doing it on their own. My buyers felt they save time, money and stress by having me work directly with them as their agent in the purchase of a new home. This is my full time job to be your advocate while you are at work, on vacation, work travel what ever the case may be. To keep you on task and to be available to you and you only when it comes to your build. Just recently I got a call from a buyer saying they have been watc...

 Potomac Shores Virginia is growing!   If you visited Potomac Shores community when it was new you may have wondered will this community really sell at these prices. When it was introduced the community was well received but for some buyers they were afraid to move forward with a purchase on the high side of prices in that area.   In May 2013 when it opened prices stated in the high 400's. Fast forward to Spring of 2015 and prices remain in the high 400's but now they have introduced new floor plans.  The introduction of the new floor plans I'll bet are for two reasons Demand and a Way to protect the equity position of the early buyers in the community. A very smart move on  NVR's part to meet the market where it is at and also protect the community values of the buyers who purchased ea...

Pretend your buyers have shopped the market, seen dozens of houses online, and have been inside six houses.   Their favorite house is next to a cemetery.  Your buyers want you to advise them on the upside and downside of living next to a cemetery. Positives: *The neighbors would be very quiet. * People are DYING to move in next door to you. *Interesting conversation starter when you throw a party for your friends. Negatives: *The neighbors would not attend your house warming party. *No playmates next door for your kids. *Occasional interment ceremonies. I had a listing many years ago that was next to a 1/4 acre cemetery.  The house was beautiful inside and out.   It took a little long to sell.  Feedback from buyers oftened referred to the cemetery as a negative for religious reasons.  O...
