 Eastern Panhandle WV Real Estate Blog 
Tuesday, 26 August 2014

While the majority of Americans own their homes— 67% according to the National Multifamily Housing Council— there is still a good amount who are wondering when to make the journey to homeownership. Your finances will ultimately help you make the decision to buy a home in the Eastern Panhandle, but here are a few more signs that you might be ready:

You want to take charge of your home 
Summer is a popular time for home improvement projects and if you're not yet a homeowner, you might not have been able to tackle them. One strong sign you're ready to buy a home in Charles Town, Ranson, Shepherdstown, Martinsburg, Inwood, Falling Waters and Hedgesville is that you're ready to truly make the spaces your own. You want to put your own spin on the home's design, paint walls and just do with the place what you please. 

You want to live in a specific area or school district
Now that school is back in session, school districts are on the minds of many Eastern Panhandle homebuyers. If you have a specific neighborhood in mind, school system or town where you'd like to put down roots, it might be time to purchase a home. Real estate is an investment in your future and if you know where you'd like to be, that is one sign to make the move.

Your family is growing
Growing families tend to give a much needed boost to potential West Virginia homebuyers. Have you outgrown your home? Are you in need of more storage? All strong signs to start your home search for something bigger and more accomodating to your family's needs. Start by making a home wish list and then contact your local Eastern Panhandle real estate agent!

You found the one
If you're not yet a homeowner but have been eyeing properties in Jefferson County and Berkeley County, it could be time to take the next step. Mortgage rates are still low and with rising housing prices, waiting will cost you in the long run. Do you see your dream home for sale? Don't hesitate! This could be your chance to settle in.

Living in the Eastern Panhandle, there are many things to smile about— one of them being your home. Whether you've just purchased a new home, have been in place for years or are looking to move to another West Virginia property, being happy at home is on every homeowner wishlist. But you don't have to take on new activities or even renovate to be happy at home, these tips will help put a smile on your Eastern Panhandle homeowner face before you know it:

Load the Dishwasher Before Bed
Waking up to a clean home is the best way to start the day, don't you agree? Take a few minutes before bed each night to load the dishwasher. This will save you a big sigh in the morning and time in the evening when it's time to start cooking.

Make Your Bed Every Morning
One of the easiest ways to feel happy in your Charles Town, Ranson, Shepherdstown, Martinsburg, Inwood, Falling Waters and Hedgesville. home is to get organized. It all starts with making your bed every morning— it only takes a few minutes and by accomplishing this one task in the morning, it sets the stage for productivity for the rest of the day. 

Do the Cleaning at Night
Not everyone has the time on the weekends to devote to cleaning their home, top to bottom. Instead, take on little projects each night. Start with dusting, washing windows, putting away laundry, whatever else might be on your list. Choose a new spot every night so you can cover more surface area as the week goes on. 

Clean the Windows
Not sure what it is about a certain room in your home that is just bringing you down? Clean the windows. By removing dirt and grime from the glass, you'll let in more light and thus, brighten and freshen the space. This one task can help your home feel worlds cleaner, especially during these late summer months.

Don't Ignore Projects
Leaky faucet, squeaky door, chipped paint. All of these are common problems for the Eastern Panhandle homeowner, but ignorning them can cause a serious headache later. Tackle a project as soon as it arises and you'll avoid the mountain of repairs that could stem from putting it in the back of your mind. One of the main causes of homeowner stress is a long maintenance list, but taking on projects as soon as they pop up can help!

With all of the sunshine these summer months bring, it's certainly not difficult to find something to sing about. With these easy tips, you can bring that happiness into your Jefferson County or Berkeley County home this season.

On our blog, you've read about life in the Eastern Panhandle and this week, I'd like to introduce you to the community of Harpers Ferry— the easternmost town in West Virginia. Much like Berkeley County and Jefferson County are rich in history, so too is the town of Harpers Ferry. The town is best known for John Brown's raid on the Armory in 1859, an event that is believed to have led to the Civil War just one year later. 

Harpers Ferry offers a wealth of history to be explored— from the Harpers Ferry National Historical Park to the Historic District or the nearby B & O Railroad Potomac River Crossing and St. Peter's Roman Catholic Church, both of which are on the National Register of Historic Places. In fact, if learning more about this great community's roots is what you're looking for this summer, be sure to add the following events to your calendar:

Living History: The Enemy Among Us: Defending Harpers Ferry During the War of 1812
August 9-10, 11 AM to 4 PM
National Park, Lower Town
171 Shoreline Dr, Harpers Ferry, WV

Admisson: Park entrance fee

With this event, participants can visit a Living History 1812 military recruitment station at Harpers Ferry's oldest structure, the 1782 Tavern built by Robert Harper. This reenactment will detail how the townspeople react to the British invasion as well as the response by the workers at the Armory.

Niagara Movement Pilgrimage to John Brown's Fort
August 17, 8 AM
National Park, Murphy-Chambers Farm
Harpers Ferry, WV

Admission: FREE

During this commemorative walk to John Brown's Fort, guests can retrace the steps of the men and women of Niagara in 1906. 

The Harpers Ferry Armory Marches Off to War
August 23, 10 AM to 4 PM
National Park, Lower Town
171 Shoreline Dr, Harpers Ferry, WV

Admission: Park entrance fee

This event is a War of 1812 Bicentennial commemoration that goes hand-in-hand with Captain George W. Humphreys company of Harpers Ferry, as well as Jefferson County volunteers jumping into service for involvement with the Battle of White House Bluff.

As your Eastern Panhandle real estate expert, I am happy to help you find your next dream home in historically rich communities like Harpers Ferry, in addition to Charles Town, Ranson, Shepherdstown, Martinsburg, Inwood, Falling Waters and Hedgesville.
