Happy Happy Closing Day, Kathleen Stakem Real Estate and Mary Frances Fitzpatrick!! ๐Ÿกโญ๏ธ๐Ÿ€๐Ÿฅ‚

HUGE congrats to my clients on the sale of their Ashburn Farm townhouse today!

Here's a fun real estate story for you. On April 16th, the Briscoe's found a home they had to have in Ashburn Farm. It was perfect for their family, with the MOST awesome backyard & deck. Problem was, we had to sell their townhouse. If you know Ashburn Farm, you know this market is HOT! We beat out multiple offers on their purchase and then had to move FAST to list their home. Luckily, they had been preparing all along, our professional photos were done, the sign was in the front yard as "coming soon" and all I had to do was hit a button and their house was listed. Preparation was key in this sale! So were Clorox wipes, masks, and gloves!

2 days, 10+ showings, and 4 offers to purchase later, we were under contract. 4 days later, we were no longer under contract as the buyers got cold feet. 1 day later, we were back under contract and less than 30 days after they found the house of their dreams, with a full on global pandemic and one voided offer to purchase, we closed for well above list price.

I am so happy for the Briscoes. Truly, you are hard pressed to find a nicer family!

HUGE shout out to the always wonderful Ronni Daly Ackermann and the ladies at Consumers First Settlements for making this virtual closing super smooth. You three are the real MVPs in this crazy market, showing up day in and day out to get these closings done!

Despite a challenging environment, our agents are STILL closing transactions and ratifying new contracts daily!

We are so proud of our industry for persevering through this time and digging down to get creative to get clients into their new homes.

The second half of this week has felt like the WILD WILD WEST of Real Estate!

What are you seeing in the market right now due to COVID? Here are a few of our takeaways from this week:

1) Most buyer settlement appointments have remained unchanged at this time, but sellers are being asked to sign remotely or via e-notary.

2) Agents and lenders are being asked NOT to attend closing with their clients.

3) The number of people in a room for closing is being limited. This is also being applied to Open Houses -- agents are limiting the number of people who can walk through a house at one time.

4) Contracts are STILL rolling in. As of today we are still receiving multiple contracts a day -- we will see if/when this starts to slow.

5) Homes are STILL being activated in the MLS -- many of our agents are still activating their new listings at this time.

6) VAR released a COVID Addendum and NVAR quickly released their version, as well. Buyer Agent's are beginning to have this signed by all parties as added protection.

What can you add to this list? We want to know what you're seeing out there in the market!

Loudoun County Public Schools

LOUDOUN COUNTY FAMILIES! Schools have officially been closed starting today through next Friday, 3/20!

Dear LCPS Families and Staff:

I sincerely apologize for sending you a message regarding school closure with minimal time to make adjustments; however, given the rapidly evolving situation with the COVID-19 virus, Loudoun County Public Schools are closed today, Thursday, March 12th through Friday, March 20th. All activities are also cancelled at this time. Administrative Offices will open at twelve today with regular office hours on other days during the school closure.

As you may know, the World Health Organization declared the novel Coronavirus outbreak a global pandemic yesterday, travel between the United States and Europe was recently suspended, and some events and large gatherings have been postponed or cancelled in our region, state, and nation. Loudoun County has experienced at least one presumptive positive case of COVID-19. While Loudoun County has not experienced the extent of presumptive positive cases of COVID-19 as some other areas within our nation or globally and has not had cases that meet the definition of community transmission, we are making this decision out of an abundance of caution. We plan to announce next steps by the end of next week.

The safety and well-being of Loudoun County Public Schoolsโ€™ students, staff, and families is our highest priority; therefore, we need time as a school system to reassess this rapidly evolving situation by taking time to:

โ€ขcontinue our daily consultation with the Loudoun County Health Department to consider the latest information regarding presumptive positive cases of COVID-19 in Loudoun County as well as recommendations based on that information to determine whether to reopen schools on March 23;

โ€ขreview recommendations from other experts, such as the Virginia Department of Health and the CDC;

โ€ขconsider the community mitigation strategies for school systems recently set forth by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) as well as any related follow-up recommendations; and

โ€ขdevelop specific mitigation strategies to implement when schools reopen, as early as March 23.

While we are unaware of any presumptive positive cases of individuals connected to schools, schools will be thoroughly cleaned before they reopen.

Please continue to exercise proper hand washing with soap and other universal preventive actions such as covering your cough, sneezing into your elbow or tissue (throw away tissue), avoid touching your eyes, nose, mouth, and clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces at home.

We will provide you with multiple updates during the closure. Among numerous issues, we are considering different ways of supporting students who rely on our school meals program due to food insecurity. We are also developing guidance to principals and teachers regarding potential distance learning options and expectations in the event that the closure is extended.

Thank you for your support and understanding as we balance proactive measures of caution and timely communication.

Eric Williams, Ed.D.
Superintendent
