The Dream Home - Newport News VA   The question is what kind of dream, perfect bliss or total nightmare? What to look for when making your wish list? We all have a vision of the perfect home, just like the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence, the next home better be flawless. We want friendly neighbors, or no neighbors at all.

Location, Location, LOCATION!      When relocating to Newport News, or simply moving from one end of town to the other, location is crucial. The area your potential new home is in, largely determines the value of the home. Are the neighborhood homes comparable in value? Do not buy the biggest house on the block if you are looking to invest wisely, go for the fixer-upper if you are looking for financial gain. The biggest house on the block will usually re-sell for the amount of the lower priced neighborhood homes, but the fixer-upper, (after being fixed up), will yield the higher price compared to your initial investment.      Did you meet the next-door neighbors? If they are nice, quiet, and friendly during the day, drive by a few times at night before you buy, and see if those same nei...

Staging YOUR Home For Maximum Profit -- (Part 1)        When potential buyers come to your property, what do they see? Are they being greeted by diseased or dead plants, by scuffmarks on the front doors kick plate, peeling paint on the trim, or smudges from Fido’s nose on the glass? Do they have to stumble through bags and boxes of yard sale items you meant to deal with months ago? Are you finding yourself apologizing for the untidiness if unannounced visitors come to your home? If so, then it is time to eliminate ALL cause to warrant apologies. Clean, de-clutter, and if necessary paint, your front door, put a new doormat down, invest in a couple of planters with lush plants, (in a color that compliments your house, NOT clashes with it!), to frame your entrance, and maybe add new hardwa...

Getting to and from Hampton Roads is going to be even easier in the coming months… and that’s a welcome development for area residents.  Earlier this week, a press conference was held to announce that People Express Airlines (PEOPLExpress), a new airline, reviving the name and spirit of the iconic 1980’s low fare carrier and flying full size Boeing 737-400 jets with seating for 158 passengers, will be headquartered in Newport News with operations based at Newport News/Williamsburg International Airport. This is exciting news for Hampton Roads for several reasons.  One of the potential benefits of a new company being established and based in any city is that it brings new employment for the region.  This has a positive impact for local job seekers and also promises to bring inbound reloc...
