LOVE THIS! Qualia Coffee

QualiaIf you love coffee, check out Qualia Coffee on Georgia Ave in Petworth!  My husband is a major coffee snob and thinks it’s one of the best cups of coffee in DC.   I can vouch for the tea.  And customers seem very pleased with the bagel sandwiches and bakery.

What makes them unique?  They roast their own beans on site!

Check it out!  3917 Georgia Ave NW  (Petworth DC)

Renovation Realtor(R): Deals for the $350k-$450k Buyer

Looking for a home in the $350k-$450k range in DC? Have you considered renovating a fixer upper? Today you can buy and renovate all in one loan.

Take a look at these potential deals in your price range.

Here’s how it would work. Say you bought a house for $250k. You did a $200k renovation. Your loan would be $450k (assuming appraisal supported the new value) – the same as if you had bought a finished house for $450k.

There are tremendous advantages to renovating, but also challenges. So make sure renovating is right for you.

I would love to show you any of these homes or help you find a fixer upper that meets your needs. Contact me today!

I am a licensed DC Realtor(R) with extensive renovation experience – your Renovation Realtor(R).   I am a full service shop — helping you find a fixer, identify financing, purchase it, and I can even provide renovation consult.

Note: I am not the listing agent for the featured houses, but I’d be happy to show them to you and represent you as a buyer agent should you choose.  I have not necessarily seen every house in person yet.

Neighborhood News: Meat Restaurant Coming to Petworth!

Considering DC neighborhoods in which to buy? Petworth scored points recently as the home to the new Three Little Pigs – a charcuterie and salumi – coming soon!

According to their website, here’s what to expect:

“Everything at TLP is wholesome and hand crafted.  We butcher from locally sourced whole animals to make all of our charcuterie & salumi.  In fact, everything we source is local, all the way down to the salt.  We don’t use unnecessary chemicals to prolong shelf life or to make up for a lack of craftsmanship and patience. “

Meat-lovers, don’t miss their menu. I’ve never seen so many kinds of meat!

5111 Georgia Avenue NW

Drove by the other day and looks to still be under construction, but their website says they will offer meats for the holidays. So hopefully a grand opening soon…
