If you live in the Washington, D.C. area, you know exactly what to expect in these next two weeks. It may be the busiest time of the year here, when, after the calendar hits spring, one of the best sights in this entire country blooms.
Literally. Thousands upon thousands of trees around this city will flower and cherry blossoms will overtake the Tidal Basin and several other spots in town.
This year has proved tricky to predict the actual bloom, with our warmer than average winter followed by this recent cold front. Original forecasts had them flowering in late March, but right now, the prediction is that they will have peaked by April 4-6th, which doesn't seem to have happened.
The Market in Front Royal,VA is really picking up! The sales volume has increased by 14% from this time last year! The average sold price is up 6.24%, and the average amount of time in which to sell a property has dropped from 106 days on market to 80 days.
Warren County and the quaint town of Front Royal is a very desirable location for first time home buyers, we are continuing to see a lot of first timers enter the marketplace here. There are loan programs being offered that allow qualified home buyers to purchase with little to no money down! The interest rates are historically low, so Buyers are realizing that purchasing in many cases will cost them less than renting!

Yes, baseball season started today with the Washington Nationals losing to the Atlanta Braves. Sure, it was 40 degrees and gloomy, but baseball is back, and that means warmer days and beautiful evenings at the ballpark are coming soon.
If you weren’t able to make it to opening day, don’t fret. Baseball has the longest regular season of any sport, with 82 homes games, and the cheapest tickets around.
