Washington DC Snow Removal Law

Be prepared Washington DC Homeowners if you have a public sidewalk be prepared to face a higher fine for not keeping your walk snow free.  We are anticipating more snow fall this year so get plenty of shovels.  
The law states "DC law requires property owners to clear snow and ice from sidewalks, handicap ramps and steps on their property within the first eight daylight hours after the snow, sleet or ice stops falling."
The fines are imposed by the city and more info can be found at. http://dpw.dc.gov/service/dc-snow-removal
Tips for DC homeowners get a neighborhood snow shovel team together to make it go faster.  Buddy up with a neighbor and take turns sharing an area.  Pay teenagers to help they often love a chance to make extra money. or Just suck it up as a chance for extra exercise......

How to rid Ghost from your home

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!

Top Haunted Homes in the DC Metro area, Northern VA & Maryland

This is a list of the Top Haunted Homes in the DMV  area, that includes Washington DC, Maryland,
and Northern VA areas.  I will not be visiting these homes but for those who love scary and a haunted
adventure here is the information. Knock your self out visit these places this October and on Halloween.

Dr. Samuel Mudd's House Waldorf, MD                                 
John Wilkes Booth shot President Abraham
 Lincoln then immediately fell and broke his leg. 
 Dr. Samuel A. Mudd was the doctor who took
was looking for Booth the trail led to Dr. Mudd.
 Dr. Mudd was later arrested and tried in court for 
being a co-conspirator in Lincoln’s assassination.
 According to CBS DC, "Dr. Mudd was jailed for
 years, and known to have compassionately treated 
prison victims of yellow fever.  His wife fought
 vehemently Andrew Johnson.  

Tragically, Dr. Mudd died in his
 home just a short time after he gained his release
 having been exposed to the unhealthy conditions
 of prison life.  Many believe his restless spirit haunts the house and roams the surrounding fields.  Now the 
is open March thru November, Wednesday thru Sunday. 

The White House, Washington DC                                 
Past Presidents and First Ladies love this place because they keep coming back. When I said past I meant
dead. According to Wikepedia, "A very high number of apparitions of deceased presidents have been 
reported in the White House, the most famous of which is Abraham Lincoln."  Other sightings
 include Harry S Truman, Thomas Jefferson, Andrew Jackson, John Tyler and the spirits of a few
 First Ladies have been reported.
  
Kitty Knight's house in Galena, MD
Do not ask me to visit this house with you: Kitty Knight House in Georgetown MD  is said to be haunted
 by her spirit. All though it now serves as an awesome wedding venue with a marina, hotel and restaurant
 Visitors not afraid to stay the night say they have seen an apparition of a woman dressed in 19th century
 clothing coming down the stairs.  Most employees have said they have had  an encounter with the ghost
 of Kitty Knight. is not too far from St. Paul’s Cemetery. Kitty Knight persuaded the British not to burn her
house down during the War of 1812. www.kittyknight.com/index.htm

Woodrow Wilson House Washington, DC 
Post presidency Woodrow Wilson had a residence at
2340 S St NW wear he later died sitting in an upstairs window.
  The home was bought as a gift for his wife Edith Wilson.
 They moved in on inauguration day in 1921.  According to
 Wikipedia, "After Wilson's death in 1924, Edith Wilson
 lived there until her death on December 28, 1961. 
She hosted First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy for a 
brunch in the formal dining room. Edith bequeathed
 the property and all of its original furnishings to the
ow it is currently used as a museum.  Many employees 
and visitors have reported seeing the appariton of President Wilson in the home, sitting in the 
window and sitting in a chair. which brings us to ...

The Blair House Washington, DC
Where Woodrow Wilson has also been reported being seen in a rocking chair- he is still really busy. 
 This building was a guest hose for President's guest.  According to CBS DC "President Harry Truman
 complained of seeing ghosts during his stay at Blair House while the White House was undergoing renovation
acquired in 1836 by newspaper publisher Francis Preston Blair." Since 1942 it has been used as a guest
 home for chief's of state, government officials, and delegates. The home is located across the street from the
 White House on Pennsylvania Ave. www.blairhouse.org

Almshouse Baltimore, MD


Formerly a foster home style orphanage this place was one of three in the County serving as shelter for poor
 children. Today voices of children laughing as well as visions of children can be seen and heard. www.hsobc.org

Olde Town Inn Manassas, VA
I live right down the street from
 this place and was shocked to 
hear the details from the guest
 of this Inn.  Miss Lucy is a ghost
 that haunts this hotel and 
reportedly lifts guest in to mid air.
 There are 56 guest rooms but it is said that she only watches over 4 rooms 50 -54. These rooms
 are her favorite and the most special is room 52. She enjoys making loud noises, closing and 
opening doors and will mess up the bed.  So if you are adventurous ask for room 52.

The Octagon House Washington, DC

This home was built in 1801 by Col. John Tayloe III, and was a prominent spot to DC's elite.  Tayloe who
 was well connected was a close friend of George Washington. According to CBS DC, "In recent years, 
apparitions and unknown entities have been witnessed by the visiting public as well as by curators and 
employees of the museum that manage the house. The possible reasons: Tayloe’s daughters. Both are 
said to have died in the home after quarrels with their father over his disapproval of their love interests. 
Stories claim that both women fell to their deaths down the stairs or over stair railings. The ghost of one
 daughter is witnessed by some as the light of a candle moving up the stairs, while the other daughter is
 said to haunt the third floor landing and stairs. It is also believed that the house is haunted by the spirits
 of slaves who once served there. Ghosts of slaves are said to ring bells formerly used to summon them." 
Today you can feel free to visit this home without me theoctagon.org admission is free.

Military families have just been punched in the face!

Military families have been punched in the face by our House of Representatives.  The House has passed a bill to be sent to the Senate that would approve a 5% reduction in BAH (Basic Allowance for Housing).  
According to a recent Pew Research Report, serving in the military was “practically a requirement for serving in Congress.” As recently as the early post-Vietnam era of the late 1970s, a combined 77-percent of the members in the House and Senate had prior military service. Today, however, only approximately 20-percent of our political representatives have military experience.  This means are politicians are out of touch with the needs of military families and veterans.
Other projected cuts include cuts to military commissaries (have they seen grocery store prices)..... Cuts to tuition assistance for active duty. Veterans in Congress
 According to Military by owner: They are out of touch because they are without having experienced moving cross-country every two to three years and the resulting financial hardships that come with said moves, most notably spousal employment, military families can easily discredit our representatives as being out of touch. 
If this is passed through the Senate Military families will be KO'd once again..................

according to insidenova.com                             school supplies tax free exempt
For the ninth straight year, Virginia’s most popular sales tax holiday returns the first full weekend in August. This year, it’s Aug. 1-3. Clothing, footwear, school and office supplies will be tax-free during the three-day event.
Most school supplies that cost $20 or less each, as well as clothing items and pairs of shoes priced at $100 or less each will be exempt from Virginia’s 5.3 percent state and local sales tax.

The list of tax-exempt items is the same as last year. It includes pens, pencils, loose leaf ruled notebook paper, scissors, binders, backpacks, construction paper, sneakers, hats, shirts, dresses, jeans, bathing suits, diapers, T-shirts and many other items. There is no requirement that the purchases be made for school purposes.
All retailers who sell the exempt items are required to participate.
The tax-exempt items are available to anyone shopping in the state and there is no limit on the number of products you can buy tax-free as long as each one qualifies under the guidelines.
For those of us shopping for school any discount is a blessing do not miss out on this great deal. Go to retailmenot.com or to the app and combine this savings with great coupons..... Donate your savings buy buying an extra supply for a child in need.

They provide Market Analysis- because agents have access to the mls, they can give you Wholesaling Northen VAaccurate comps for solds, pendings, actives, and rentals.  This will help an investor analyze what kind of deal is best for a property: Flip, Rent for cash flow, pre-hab, or wholesale outright.
3. Access to Properties- when you need to view the interior of homes the agents have access.  Real Estate for sale in Northern VA can often be locked up for fear of vandelism. NoVA real estate agents and all agent will be able to legally gain access to these properties.
4. Marketing for Buyers- Agents can help you find buyers throught out the greater DC Metro area, they have access to buyers in their contact management databases, they can hold (proper) open houses, they can get buyers preapproved, and they know other investors.
5. They can Navigate the process- In the beginning they can help provide you with correct legal contracts, in the middle they can assist with coordinating with a title company to run title for liens and problems, and at the end they can coordinate with vendors, contractors, and help you prepare for closing.  When issues arrise they can help you think outside the box to solve issues.
