We're excited to be sponsoring the Kingman Island Bluegrass Festival this year! If you are going too, stop by our tent to say hello and to pick up a refillable water bottle. We'll have some other goodies as well so be sure to find us! Our tent is just beyond the Bluegrass Stage and across from a water station where you can immediately put your new reusable water bottle to use.

If you've never heard of the Kingman Island Bluegrass Festival, it's time to catch up! Kingman Island is located on the Anacostia River near the RFK Stadium. It was originally created by the Army Corps of Engineers in 1916, and is now managed by Living Classrooms, which has transformed it into a recreational area for people of all ages to learn about the natural environment.

If you are a homeowner who is expecting a tax return, you’re likely thinking about ways to put it back into your house. But what projects will get you the biggest return on your investment when you are preparing to sell your home?

We recommend starting small. Often times, the “touch up” items on your list are the ones that can make the biggest impact for the smallest cost. For example, replacing your entry door will instantly transform the way you and others feel welcomed into your home.

Similarly, a fresh coat of paint and taking the time—or hiring someone—to patch up any damaged drywall will help your home shine. Consider refinishing the hardwood floors to give them a fresh shine, just like your walls. But, keep in mind that you will need to move

Zillow recently released a new tool that allows a seller to “time the market” and determine the ideal window for selling their home for highest price in the fewest number of days. It’s a great idea, but the market is driven by much more than these computer algorithms are tracking.

On Capitol Hill, price is driven at a neighborhood level, with neighborhood factors. Zillow is using regional data, not local data, to determine the numbers. The reality is that price factors are not a regional, city, or even zip code issue.

Take, for example, how local data shifts month to month due to the type and price of homes sold. If 30 out of 100 sales in April are for condos, and then 45 out of 100 in May are for condos, the numbers could incorrectly suggest that
