Have "A Capitol Fourth" in Our Nation's Capital

Over the past four years, American’s have been spoiled. Since 2008, the Fourth of July holiday has aligned with a weekend, giving the entire nation three days off.

This year, the holiday falls on a Wednesday, sandwiched between days at the office. For many, that might be a disappointment, and cause people to trim their activities. But here in Washington, D.C., despite the weekday date, there is no shortage of ways to celebrate.

Mount Airy, MD 6/19/12

Have you visited Mount Airy lately, or for that matter, ever? It is a quaint town with historic buildings and a welcoming atmosphere.

It is centrally located, just north of Washington, D.C., west of Baltimore, south of Gettysburg, and east of Frederick. Interstate 70 borders the town and provides easy access to larger cities and major employment centers in Washington, D.C., Maryland, and Northern Virginia.

Have You Been Craigs-RE-Listed?

Two weeks ago one of my investment properties needed a new tenant. As a REALTOR/Investor, in addition to using our wonderful MRIS, I use Craigslist to advertise my rental properties and can proudly boast a 100% success rate in finding new tenants.

Savvy as I’d like to think I am, my ad was not going to be a regular ad, oh no, I went onto Postlets and created a more dramatic flyer with numerous photos of the house rather than the standard four photos Craigslist permits.
