  • About Rental Agents

    Leasing a rental

    Realtor Ron Ginyard
    Ronald R Ginyard Sr. is a Certified Distressed Property Expert.

    Leasing a rental is a very serious decision which warrants a great deal of attention before a final decision is made. When choosing a rental property, renters in Northern Virginia have a variety of factors to consider including, but not limited to, price, size, location, amenities, length of stay, proximity to Metro, type of home (condo, townhouse, single-family, etc.).

    A smarter renter will consider all of their options before making a decision to ensure they are making the best possible decision. But the number of choices can be overwhelming. It’s hard to know that you’re not missing something. A rental agent can help you make sense of your options. Best of all a rental agent costs the renter nothing.

  • More about selling your property

    The best way to update a property is to paint it. It’s a job that many sellers can do themselves.

    Here are six suggestions for making the work go quickly.

    1. Move the furniture. Get as much furniture as possible out of the way, and then cover what’s left with plastic drop cloths held in place with masking tape.
    2. Buy good paint. Top-quality latex interior paint will hide what’s underneath and make the job go faster.
    3. Tape the edges. Taping the edges with painters tape will speed up the job and make the results more professional.
    4. Work top down. Paint the ceiling first, then the walls, then the windows and trim and finally the baseboards. This will cut down on time spent repairing drips and splatter marks.
    5. Cut in the corners. Applying a three-inch band of paint around the edges will allow you to fill in the middle with a paint roller.
    6. Apply paint generously. Trying to stretch the paint won’t save sellers any money if they have to repaint.
