  Coming this April Virginia Beach will have it's own Shooting Academy and indoor target range. The location will be at the former Bloom Brother's furniture store at the corner of Witchduck Road and Virginia Beach Blvd. The address is 5070 Virginia Beach Boulevard at Witchduck Road, Virginia Beach, VA 23462 | 855.610.2666.
While not everyone may be enthused about another gun store or indoor shooting range, there has been a need in the area for some time. The few existing ranges are decent but quite dated and usually very crowded. Leaving some folks that would like to get more education and experience in firearms safety and self defense with few options.        This new local business will offer Fire Arms Safety Education,…

  If you are like most people here, you and your home had a rough winter.  Ice, Snow, Rain and temperature fluctuations from one day to the next take a toll on a home.  Preventative maintenance is always a better investment of time and money than differed maintenance. 
A quick walk around your home may reveal opportunities to avoid a costly repair in the future. Your roof , siding, caulking, heating and cooling systems and plumbing were all put under an extraordinary load these past few months. I'd like to share a few things you may want to check on above and beyond the normal "Spring Cleaning" list.    Roof/Siding Leaks: You may have a newer roof that is in great shape but snow and ice can have different effects on how water…

    Uncertainty breeds confusion and interrupts our ability to access Risk vs. Reward.
It's really not complicated, inject uncertainty in to any market and you upset the natural balance of Supply & Demand. Currently, uncertainty is at an all time high at almost every level in most households.
                                                                                   In My opinion the single largest risk to our Hampton Roads Real Estate Market is shared by both Home Buyers and Home Sellers.   The Wild Card that is creating serious risk are Mortgage Interest Rates. Rate Changes are the anvil hanging over the head of our local recovery. History can be our guide, over the past 30 years when mortgage rates come off of low rate…

"Home Security, It's never a problem until it's too prepared"  During a Home sale or purchase there is a lot going on and often Home Security is overlooked as we focus on other factors in and around the home.
The PerfectHouse Team often recommends that our clients compare security options and put in place a monitoring system of some sort to protect their home and family's safety.   

Please check out BOTH videos below.  The first one has been around for a little while, but the second video includes what you can do to protect yourself.

    We all want to feel happy and rewarded in our personal lives and our business life. As a Real Estate Coach I am often asked by agents why they just can't seem to get where they want to be.    Often, it simply comes down to fear, ironically, Fear of Success. No one that I know is really afraid of succeeding, so let me explain. Procrastination is a byproduct of fear and fear is simply a lack of confidence created by our imagination. We fear the unknown and imagine all the bad things that could happen so we take No Action.    Whether it's getting a new job, losing weight, buying or selling a home or starting a new business, folks often just get frozen by their overactive imagination. They will not set a goal or make a plan because it is…

The most important decision you make is who you will trust to guide you through this major financial life event.  Some people give this a lot of thought and others just choose an agent they like without any research. The fact is you will hire an Agent, not a company, however choosing an agent from the wrong company can come at a cost.     Choosing an agent with a National Network is very important but if all the focus is on the “National” part and the ownership and focus of the Company is not grounded locally then you may be losing some very important support.    After all, the homes we are buying or selling are here where we live, in our community. Our relationships with other potential buyers or sellers, agents and service providers are also…
