Keeping Up With the Joneses

Arlington, Alexandria, and Fairfax County, VA are sought-after neighborhoods for professionals working in and around the VA and Washington DC areas. Often, changes in the neighborhood can spark others to make changes – it’s the keeping up with the Jones’s syndrome. Mr. Jones adds a pool, Mr. Smith remodels his basement and Mr. West adds a screened-in porch. You don’t have to keep up with the Jones’s, but it is a good idea to keep your home in good shape for longevity and resale.

If your family can use an expansion or remodel and it adds value to your home, then consider one of many types of home additions. Good ideas include kitchen remodels or additions that update both aesthetically and functionally. These are proven value-adds for resale, as well. Decks and porches are also great – not only for resale but also to enjoy the beautiful Virginia weather. Finally, a first floor master suite allows options for Aging in Place, or for caring for elderly relatives. Add some of these things and stay in your valuable location, enjoying all the benefits of Arlington, Alexandria and Fairfax County, VA.
