These tips for home sellers in 22307 are effective across Northern Virginia. Whether you’re in Bucknell Manor, River Towers, Belle View or Belle Haven, when potential buyers step into your house, they want to see a clean, neat and attractively decorated house. What buyers do not want is a home that is so overly decorated they can’t imagine their own furniture and possessions in the house. Home buyers are not impressed with
Too many shelves — This can say that the home doesn’t have enough room.
Tables with knickknacks — Sellers want buyers to look at the home, not the knickknacks.
Family pictures at every turn — Pictures can tempt the buyer to figure out who the seller is instead of how the home might work for them.
Too many overstuffed sofas piled with pillows — Many of the older homes in 22307 are a smaller scale than buyers from other parts of the country might be accustomed to.
Toys — This includes grown men toys. (One home we showed had a motorcycle in the living room.)
Anything that hides the architectural and structural features of a home.
Here are a few tips on keeping a minimalist approach to your home decorating in 22307.Continue reading

When I was a kid growing up in Belle View for fun we would play in the streets and in the suburban yards. Summer days were spent walking to the Mount Vernon Rec Center, being indoors watching Rocket Power marathons on Nickelodeon, practicing ollying sewer caps on our skateboards or razor scooters, climbing trees, walking to Belle View Shopping Center to get some candy with money that was scraped out of couch cushions, or maybe playing James Bond 007 multiplayer on N64. Summer nights were spent playing kick the can until it was time to go home.
Eventually we would get bored with the activities listed above. This meant it was time to venture a couple blocks out of the neighborhood (with our parents permission) and visit Bucknell Manor Park. Bucknell Manor Park is nestled in between Bucknell and Belle View, just off Belle View Boulevard. This park is surrounded by homes (Cape Cods and Duplexes).
I remember when I played little league baseball my dad or one of my friend’s dad would drive us to the park to practice. One day I was in the outfield and my friend was working on his batting and he really cranked a good pop fly right towards me in the outfield. I had a bad habit of turning my hand palm up when I caught the ball (for some reason it felt natural). Well the ball was high up in the air and going fast towards and I turned my palm up and got underneath it. Smack! It hit me right in the chest.
I’m not happy to admit that I started crying and screaming “I can’t breathe!” but that’s the truth. I remember my friends dad along with everyone ran to me as I was on the ground balling. He said “If you can talk you can breathe” and that was that. I cried until I got my composure. However from that day on I had less interest in catching pop flies and more interest in kicking the dandelions in the outfield.
