What a blast! I went two days this year and loaded up on Italian Sausage sandwiches, funnel cakes, and even cotton candy. Got to see a lot of animals, meet a bunch of people, and enjoy some rides.

In previous "Out and About" Blogs I have told you a little bit of Historic Occoquan and some of the new developments within the town borders however the Occoquan River has a number of interesting Prince William communities along its banks.  The name Occoquan comes from the Dogue Indians and means "the end of the water".  The Dogue Indians lived along the banks of the Occoquan and were among the first Indian Tribes that the European settlers encountered after landing at Jamestown.For home buyers who are looking for property that is not the usual Prince William County colonial then you might be interested in checking out the community of Occoquan Forest.   Located not far for the Prince William County Center this community has its own private park along the river great for launching your ...

Have you ever dreamed about investing in FORECLOSURES? We have all seen the TV shows that seem to be popping up all over the place like weeds (Flip This House, Flip That House, Property Ladder).  They make it look so EASY on TV, don't they?  Well take it from someone who has flipped houses, and done so successfully numerous times, it is DEFINITELY not that easy. You need to know what you are doing and you need the help and guidance of a REALTOR that is familiar with FORECLOSURES.Foreclosures can be very fun and also quite challenging.  You will find many obstacles along the way, Contractors (Don't get me started), Permits, unexpected problems, financing, cost overruns.  These are BUT a few of the problems.  A Realtor, such as myself, could be quite useful to investors.  We could print o...

I keep running into the problem of debt over equity.This is where one owes more than a property is worth.Usually the reason is the owner was using their house like an ATM machine and sucking the crack pipe of phantom equity.There is one person who has been bugging me to auction their home but I keep telling them the truth about the market.In the 4 months they have been on the fence about an auction the property has lost about $50,000.00 in value and $37,000 according to the tax records. The property is in Northern Virginia and was worth $650,000.00 at the peak of the bubble in 2005 when they chose to list with a realtor in November of 2005, but the house would only fetch $400.000 to $450,000 today.What would you do?I finally sent them this letter today.Dear Jim:Please don't shoot me I a...

As this is my first blog, I apolgize for not knowing what this is all about, but I find it very interesting, and so, I thought I would try.Hopefully, if you are reading this, you might want some information, just general conversation of what is going on in my local area.  If you do, write and ask me and I will either tell you what I know, or find it out for you.Today, this day 3 of the New Year, I have not had one of my listings sell, nor, has any of my buyer clients purchased a home yet.  We still go out and look at EVERYTHING!  Yes, everything.  Why?  Because we can.  There are alot of homes for sale and in the beginning, we truly looked within a price category, which is generally how a buyer will shop.  Now, things are different, we shop in a price range that we would not have before...
