Top 3 Home Improvements in 2017

Five Easy Fall Home Maintenance Tips (1)According the the National Association of Realtor’s 2017 Remodeling Impact Study, both realtors and home buyers listed the same top three items on the list of most impactful interior home improvements.  Even better, homeowners were happiest with the results after tackling the very same items.

I always tell my clients, unless you pan to sell in the next 12 months, do what makes you happy in your home and then worry about resale.  Looks like what homeowners enjoy living with and what brings value at resale are the same things!

New to Leesburg’s Crescent Place

In the heart of old town Leesburg, there is an area I call the “triangle” contained by Catoctin Circle, East Market St and South King St.  The Crescent Place neighborhood, located off Harrison St. in the middle of the triangle and alongside the Washington & Old Dominion Trail, is a result of the redevelopment of the old abandoned window factory.  Walkable to the Leesburg Farmer’s Market and a number of long established restaurants and shops, it has been a great new addition while enhancing the character of the neighborhood.

The Shops at Crescent Place are Fully Leased

The townhouses and condos in Crescent Place give residents the option to live in a walkable and thriving part of Leesburg. While new construction is sold out, there are some resale and rent opportunities in the neighborhood. Now that the residential construction is wrapping up, it’s time to focus on the new retail tenants in The Shops at Crescent Place.

Early retail tenants included boutiques Studio Twenty8Fifty7 and  Best Rack Around.

A great addition for those enjoying the nearby W&OD trail is Transition Triathlon. Recognized as one of the best triathlon stores in the Mid-Atlantic region, don’t be intimidated if you aren’t training for your next IronMan – they have gear for most athletes, offer clinics, and can handle bike repairs too.

Portside’s The Nutcracker and Salted Caramel White Mocha 

In recent months they have been joined by local coffee and pastry shop Portside Coffee where you can sample tasty seasonal treats, catch live music and even admire cool cars.
