If you live in Virginia, or close enough to shop inside its borders, get ready for the Virginia Sales Tax Holiday, from Aug. 4-6, 2017. During that weekend, you can buy qualifying school supplies, clothing, footwear, hurricane and emergency preparedness items, and even Energy Star™ and WaterSense™ products, all without paying the Virginia state sales tax.

The three-day break from Virginia sales tax starts the first Friday in August at 12:01 AM and ends the following Sunday at 11:59 PM. North Carolina repealed their sales tax holidays earlier this year.

Currently, Virginia’s state sales tax is 5.3 percent, so depending on what you need to buy, the savings can add up. 

What items are eligible?

School supplies, clothing, and footwear

    Timely payment is the cornerstone of the landlord/tenant relationship. Both parties make certain promises and representations when a lease is signed, the most significant of which is the rent will be paid as promised and without demand. Some tenants feel landlords are relatively wealthy and a late payment here or there has little impact.

    Nothing could be further from the truth, as most landlords have a single home they rent and commit to service the mortgage debt independent of the lease. When rent is late, the landlord has to suddenly make a sizeable payment unexpectedly, which usually has an immediate negative effect on their financial situation.

    Most leases are constructed for rent to be due on the first calendar day of the month, with a typical

    When families buy new homes, it’s not uncommon to start filling them with new furniture, especially if their new houses are larger than their previous. The same goes for their new garages. They aren't buying only tools. Sometimes, it’s also new vehicles.

    July is “Women’s Motorcycle Month.” Many women want to strike out on their own, hitting the open road on their motorcycles and going where it leads them.

    In 1915, Effie Hotchkiss and her mother, Avis, rode from New York City to San Francisco and back. It was the first cross-country motorcycle trip for a woman in history. 

    In those days, a cross-country ride was very rare for either gender, so it was an extraordinary expedition for a young woman and her mother. Effie wanted to see the

    Maintenance requests from tenants and other issues can arise unexpectedly from time to time, so rental properties should have ongoing routine maintenance to keep their equipment in good working order. It becomes easy to ignore things when they’re working properly, but deferring maintenance almost always costs more in the long run. Just as your car requires routine servicing such as oil changes, there are things you can and should do now to ensure your rental property stays in top condition.

    Among the things that should receive attention on a regular basis are ornamental landscaping, roofing and gutters, HVAC systems, oil heating systems, and water heaters. If your property has a pool or spa, professional service is always recommended, as repairs for

    You may be at a crossroads in your search for a home of, “Should I go for a resale or opt for a brand new house?” A very important factor to consider when you are putting together your pro’s and con’s list is your timeline. Planning is always a good idea, even if you’re certain you’re seeking a resale property. When your thoughts veer towards a new home, the importance of a timeline heightens dramatically.

    Let’s say you’ve made the decision to buy a brand new home because you’ve found a floor plan that fits best for you and the exterior style, colors and finishes all appeal to you so much more than owning someone else’s house. Besides those choices, when you desire to be in the home, making new memories, is something about which you should be
