Looking to spend $469,900 in Northern Virginia for a 4-BR townhouse? Nesbitt Realty is here when you need help with these and other tips.

A gas fireplace can be dangerous for kids. Some parents might not know that according to the Consumer Safety Product Commission, within three minutes, the glass doors of a gas fireplace can become hot enough to cause third-degree burns. Then, it takes about 45 minutes for the glass to cool down.

Some older furnaces blow hot air up that can be dangerous for little tykes. It has happened that a toddler standing on a hot grate has had minor burns on the baby’s feet.

For some new parents, the only thing that matters is that the infant’s room has enough space for a rocker, changing table, and crib. Many buyer clients forget to seriously deliberate on where the master suite is in relation to the nursery. Most parents know to discover a townhouse with ample bedrooms for their kids, what they sometimes fail to mull over is where those bedrooms are. Many parents prefer a layout the location of their children’s bedrooms are fairly close to their own, since it keeps their children within earshot at night. However, bedrooms on separate floors can work for parents who prefer a bit more privacy.
