Potomac, MD Real Estate News

Are you selling a property that has a septic system? It will need to be inspected prior to settlement. Yesterday I went on a septic inspection and learned the basics for real estate professionals.                                               We started the appointment by turning on a bathtub facet in the house and letting the water run to get an accurate test. Next we had to locate the Septic manhole cover, which proved challenging. The owner was not on-site with us, so we only had a general sense of the location. Luckily the septic tech had brought equipment to help him find the cover including a metal detector. Our manhole cover was buried underground, so the tech had to dig to gain access. The tech let the buyer know that he had the option of installing a ground-level access cover, ...

    I showed a luxury listing outside of Washington DC to a 10 year old yesterday evening. Of course when the agent scheduled the appointment, I was told it was a family who was looking to up-grade. 10 year old Mark* (name changed) arrived at my listing having done quite a bit of research. In fact, he had a handwritten list three pages long where he noted property features he liked. Dad was instructed to check off each feature as he saw it to make sure it was in fact "good". Some features had notes next to them. For example:   Chandeliers? (Do these convey with the property?)   At first I thought it was adorable, and then I saw that it was totally serious. Dad proudly told me that Mark had researched and found the current property they own.......by my calculation the kid must have been...

These birds probably have a lot more sense than many of the humans who check out these rapids on the Potomac near Great Falls.  There are even signs warning that if you fall in, you're pretty much doomed, as the rescue guys know it's way dangerous to jump in after you.  Still, every once in a while, there will be a story on the eleven o'clock news of a drowning around here.  I took this photo from a pretty good distance, and the river is totally wild and beautiful around here.

The historic Great Falls Tavern was not always the visitor center for the section around Lock 20 of the C & O Canal.  It opened it's door in 1831, serving as a stopover where people traveling along the canal could find food and a room. In one room of the old Tavern, which now serves as the Great Falls Park Visitor's Center, there is a video of the history of the Canal, and of the section around Great Falls. There is one very old sepia photo of a bunch of people standing along the side of the tavern, most looking like they'd had one too many.  The original proprietor of the Inn, a Mr. W.W. Fenlon, was pretty famous for his hospitality, organizing dances, fishing parties - not too close the Falls, we hope, especially with all the imbibing that went on. Today, the Park is booze free.  It's...

The rain this spring has slowed deck staining in Potomac, MD. Carlton Cleans is cleaning as many decks as possible in preparation for dry weather. Here are some pictures of Potomac Deck Refinishing in process.

Part 1—Selecting the Equipment As a homeowner with a deck, you know that if you want to maintain your investment you will have to periodically clean and seal it. The only question is whether you choose to hire a professional or to do it on your own. In this series of articles, we’ll explain what you should know if you’re considering taking on the challenge yourself. The first decision to make is the type of pressure washer to use. The minimum power you’ll need to effectively clean the deck is 1500 PSI (pounds per square inch). Either a hot or cold water pressure washer may be used. Many contractors will recommend using a washer in the 2800 to 3200 PSI range, but with added pressure comes added potential for damaging the deck. If too much force is applied, it is possible to remove a cons...
