Northern Virginia

Fredericksburg Commuting and Transportation

Fredericksburg Commuting and Transportation

Commuting to Northern Virginia and Washington, D. C. from Fredericksburg is summarized by four options. All of them help fight traveling to work using a transportation grid designed to move traffic 3 decades ago. Slug lines, van pools, commuter trains, and Interstate 95 HOT Lanes will cut down on your travel time and reduce the headaches of daily stop and go traffic. Many people relocating to the Fredericksburg area have searched for homes in Prince William County. But prices for the home they want is out of their price range. So home searches begin in Stafford County in Falmouth, 22405 (Kings Highway Route 3 East), and Fredericksburg, 22406 (Warrenton Road Route 17 North). The outer limits of the Washington, D. C. commute are in Spotsylvania County in Fredericksburg, 22407 (Plank Road Route 3 West) and Fredericksburg, 22408 (Route 2 and 17).

Build the Bi-County Parkway

Build The Bi-County Parkway

There are several reasons to build the Bi-County Parkway. Northern Virginia residents only need to look at the past to realize our transportation needs for the future. The voices who were against the development of the Fairfax County Parkway and Prince William County Parkway, presented the same arguments as the opponents of a connecting route between Prince William County and Loudoun County. These roads quickly became primary routes necessary to avoid gridlock. Both highways have already expanded to meet demand.

I’m trying to keep this short.  So here are a few thoughts.  Forbes published America’s Fast Growing Counties: The Suburbs Are Back which recorded Loudoun County as the #2 fastest growing county between 2010-2012.  It’s 2012 population of 336,898 is a 7.87% increase.  Prince William County is #8 on this list.  It’s 2012 population of 430,289 is a 7.04%… Continue reading

Building the Outer Beltway in Northern Virginia

The Prince William County-Loudoun County Parkway (Bi-County Parkway)

The North-South Corridor Master Plan includes the Bi-County Parkway extending Route 234 from Interstate 66 to in Prince William County to Route 50 and Northstar Boulevard in Loudoun County. Often referred to as the “Outer Beltway” by opponents, the project is designed as a north-south transportation alternative to Routes 28 & 15. The Prince William Chamber of Commerce and the Northern Virginia Transportation Alliance support this project. The planned improvements to U. S. Route 1 in Prince William County and the Town of Dumfries should help the increased traffic from Route 234 (Ronald Wilson Reagan Memorial Highway) if the connection is built between Loudoun County and Prince William County.

Opposition stories to the Bi-County Parkway are in Northern Virginia media outlets every week as a group protesting against its construction continues to pressure local leaders to stop the Virginia Transportation Board and… Continue reading

Virginia Transportation Funding Bill HB2313

Virginia Transportation Funding Bill HB2313

Transportation problems in Northern Virginia are addressed in HB2313.  Some of it is disappointing.  But as much as we hate increased taxes designated for Northern Virginia, the lack of any comprehensive transportation reform since 1986 makes the 2013 Virginia Transportation Funding Bill a better-than-nothing scenario.   Although this bill represents progress for a transportation network in Northern Virginia which by all objective measures is a complete failure, it ignores commuter rail upgrades along I-95 & I-66 corridors. Northern Virginia will receive funding from this transportation bill.  But citizens will pay more than their share for new construction projects.

Virginia Transportation Funding Bill HB2313 is loaded with new taxes, including regional taxes for Northern Virginia to be spent for local projects as determined by the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority.  The NVTA board has members from the… Continue reading

Improving Northern Virginia Transportation

Improving Northern Virginia Transportation | The Moyers Team

The Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation has begun a study for transportation needs in Northern Virginia in 2040.  This plan is known as the Super NoVa Transit and Transportation Demand Management Vision Plan.  The study will focus on already stressed public transportation options, and find transportation enhancements for local, express, rapid, and priority bus services; guide way (streetcar), light rail, heavy rail, commuter rail, and intercity passenger rail.  The Northern Virginia area will be redefined by this study to include Caroline County (south), Culpeper County (west), and Frederick County (northwest). As a lifelong resident of Northern Virginia I understand the need for this study. The Northern Virginia transportation network is outdated.  Northern Virginia residents are now seeing construction of current transportation projects which should have been in place… Continue reading

Multiple Offer Strategies While Buying Homes

When available housing inventories become low in Northern Virginia, available homes will usually receive multiple offers. If the home for sale is in good condition, located near major transportation routes and commuter lots, and supported by sought after schools, it is almost certain it will receive multiple contract offers. Every multiple offer scenario is different because it involves different purchasers, homeowners, real estate agents, and residential properties. This article intends to provide multiple offer strategies while buying homes and provide guidance through the process of competing against other prospective home buyers to own your next home. The items listed below include often used approaches during almost all multiple contract negotiations.

(1) Waive appraisal contingencies. We listed this first because this approach is the biggest risk. As a buyer you must be in love with the home you are trying to buy to use this strategy. We have advised past clients… Continue reading

Buying New Homes from Builders

We continue to learn of problems experienced by the purchasers of new homes during the construction, walk-through, and closing phases. Writing the contract with the builder’s sales representative never seems to be a problem with consumers. When buying new homes from builders these problems usually occur after contract agreement including financing options, and post-closing repair agreements. This article will also address the demands of the builder to move the closing date to an earlier date than listed in the written agreement.

Why closing date changes occur usually depends on the builder you sign a contract with to deliver a new home. While representing new home purchasers in the past, we have dealt with the sales managers of nationally recognized builders informing us of changing closing dates because the home was ready for delivery earlier than expected, and the sale would help meet corporate sales projections.

View this practice as an… Continue reading
