Last Friday night some friends and I took advantage of the free concert series being offered monthly by the Broadlands.  I personally wasn't too impressed by the opening band Road Soda who seemed more like a karaoke band.  However, I cannot grant enough accolades to the bank Derek James who had a great sound.  I was able to grab a few poor quality photos on my phone camera (captured below).  Besides the music, there were kids everywhere of all ages.  Broadlands did a fantastic job with all of their sponsors and volunteers setting all of this up.  Broadlands will be holding 3 more outdoor concert events this summer: July 18  '80s DRESS UP NIGHT                5:30-6:30 p.m.      The Backseat Betties                7-9:30 p.m.            Gonzo's Nose Aug. 15   CHILDREN's OPENER           ...

Buying a home can be a double-edged sword: it's both a thrilling and exciting experience, but it can also be incredibly scary and tiresome at the same time.As you may imagine, most homebuyers experience a wide range of emotions as they traverse the buying process.  Don't worry, this is normal.  In fact, now may be good opportunity to buy a home and I believe more people than ever are considering buying homes, not just because of low interest rates, but also because of benefits such as: Credit Score - Pay your mortgage on time and watch your credit score skyrocket.  Investment- Depending on your area, your house value can appreciate substantially over the course of ownership, thus making real estate a good financial investment in long run. Pride - There's nothing like the feeling of buyi...

The Village of Waxpool community is located in Ashburn, Virginia off of Belmont Ridge Rd. It sits adjacent to Brambleton and Broadlands (click here for aerial view). All of the homes are on 1/2 acre lots and are in the larger square footage/upper price bracket when compared to the majority of what you'd find in Ashburn as well as most of eastern Loudoun County. There are three builders in the Village of Waxpool community: Brookfield Homes Craftmark Homes NV Homes Most of the community has been completed though there are still some lots available. They recently opened the backside of the community to Broadlands so you can now cut through Broadlands to shopping and ammenities without having to drive out to Belmont Ridge Rd. At one point during the boom real estate market, these homes wer...

Moving can be very exciting...but it can also be a bit of a pain as well. Besides packing and unpacking, there is a long list of details to be handled. Things like choosing a mover, connecting utilities, getting Internet and cable service, or subscribing to newspapers or magazines in a new area can be quite a chore. And if you forget to connect one of the utilities you could be stuck in your new home for several days without that much needed service. To ease the stress of moving and schedule new connections for all of the utilities in one convenient location, simply logon to www.whitefence.com. You can quickly compare prices for movers, phone, electricity, television, or high-speed Internet. Just select the service you wish to compare--for example, phone, cable, and electric. Or, enter ...

There was an awesome storm yesterday.  I was able to grab a few some incredible photos of the clouds with my phone while walking my dog .  After the storm there were 2 beautiful rainbows.  One was incredibly bright.  My phone doesn't do justice but I am sharing it nevertheless.  Sign up to receive web updates!

Go Green and Save Green tip #4 Pay bills online. Eliminating your paper trail by banking and paying bills online does more than save trees. It also helps reduce fuel consumption by the trucks and planes that transport paper checks. If every U.S. home viewed and paid its bills online, the switch would cut solid waste by 1.6 billion tons a year and curb greenhouse-gas emissions by 2.1 million tons a year, according to Javelin Strategy & Research. Worried about security? Don't be. Just ignore e-mails "phishing" for personal data, and monitor all (electronic) statements for any unauthorized debits. Report problems immediately, and your credit won't take the hit. To avoid unnecessary carbon dioxide-emitting car trips to the bank on payday, ask your employer to directly deposit your paycheck....

Wednesday is stat day so here you go... Usually when showing stats I leave out condos because they have a tendency to bring down the accuracy of stats.   So, I wanted to be fair and give those condos their own post.  I have broken down the stats between Ashburn's 2 zip codes.  20147 is Ashburn's north side including neighborhoods like Ashburn Village & Farm, Belmont, etc...  20148 includes the neighborhoods Brambleton, Broadlands, and more.  20147 has more condos available currently built than 20148.  The only 20147 condos still being built are in Belmont (I think they are called The Ridges).   The only ones I can think of still being built in 20148 are in Brambleton by Centex and Beazer.  If would like a list of condos for sale in Ashburn or other cities you can search HERE or I will e...

I posted this last month, but it's such an easy way to raise money for your favorite charity I just had to repost it to help spread the word.... Here's an easy way to raise money for your favorite cause. Just start using http://www.goodsearch.com/ as your search engine and online shopping mall. Every time you search the Internet or make an online purchase at one of their partner merchants, GoodSearch makes a donation to your favorite nonprofit or school and it's powered by Yahoo! so you get great search results! One great Cause I search for is: A Forever Home Rescue Foundation- Chantilly, VA They are an animal rescue organization

If you are a Loudoun local you have heard of the Broadlands.  It's not the fact that the Broadlands has created their own unincorporated name inside of Ashburn.  Nope.   People in the Broadlands have a major agenda currently.  That agenda is getting their own hospital.  I find it humorous when reading the local papers every week with full page ads being ran from the current Loudoun Hospital in Lansdowne, only a little more than a mile down the road, or ads from the Broadlands.  There is a lot of ink being spilt over this hospital.   Truth be told, I don't have too much of an opinion on the issue, except if it means more taxes for Loudoun at this time I can't say I am too excited.  Well, this article has little to do with county battles and more to do with the large community of the BRO...

Ashburn and Leesburg are hosting a summer full of concerts and events this year.  I am not sure who started this outdoor competition but there is no denying that it is anything less than a battle of the communities.  I say, "Let the battle begin while we reap the benefits of a summer full of music and fun!" For the next few weeks I will do my best to outline these events.  Just to let you in on who is involved thus far; Belmont, Broadlands, Brambleton, Lansdowne, Tarara Winery, Leesburg Town Hall and The Courthouse (these guys may have started it all- obviously not a community).  This week lets cover Belmont's- Loudoun Summer Music Fest. Loudoun Summer Music Festival LSMF rocks Northern Virginia with a series of LIVE concerts that entertain over 50,000 adults and children at a series of...

Here is a snap shot of the home sales, days on market, active listings, and pending sales in Loudoun County during April.  I know that it is already May but it takes a while to see the correct picture of all that sold when sales are not always updated on time.  As you can see sales are up, days on market are down, and pending contracts are up.  The only negative that I see besides a lot of listings, which is common this time of year, is that the average sales price is down.  This is a tough stat to judge depending on the types of homes are selling.  Nevertheless it appears that every month for the past few we have seen a around a 20k drop in the average sales price.  VIEW THE STATS HERE   Sign upto receive updates from TheRealEstateBakery!
