Step Sisters 2016 Ribbon Run

The Step Sisters – Not Your Average Breast Cancer Organization

Ribbon Run photographs are courtesy of Jessica Monte Photography

There’s no limit to the number of organizations out there right now who are trying to raise money to find a cure for Breast Cancer. And rightly so. According to the CDC Breast Cancer is the most common cancer in women, no matter your race or ethnicity. About 220,000 women (and about 2,000 men) are diagnosed annually. But with much of the focus on finding a cure, who is there for the patient going through it? That’s where the Step Sisters come in.

They are a team of breast cancer survivors, mothers, sisters, daughters, brothers, sons and fathers who have all been touched in some way by breast cancer and want to “pay it forward” for those in need.JS Realty StepSisters logo2

The Step Sisters Mission: Improving the quality of life for those impacted by breast cancer by funding needed support services in Loudoun County and the surrounding community.

The Step Sisters have expanded their reach and currently serve breast cancer patients in Loudoun and Fairfax counties.  Services include: transportation, home cleaning, meals/fresh food delivery, childcare, dog walking and lawn care/snow removal. And their patients are extremely grateful for their help:step sisters

This past spring, the JS Realty Team was a sponsor for the Step Sisters’ 5K Ribbon Run in Brambleton, VA. We were also active participants!step sisters

When choosing a charity to support, we want to be sure we are making an impact locally – and not just financially. We want to be active in assisting an organization that uplifts and supports the community. Since we live, work, and play in Brambleton, the Step Sisters was an easy decision. And the Ribbon Run is always a fun event!step sisters ribbon run jsrealty4u

Almost our entire team (and a few family members!) showed up to the Ribbon Run event. Wearing matching gray capes with a fun logo on it, we walked, ran, photographed, and took video of the 5K and Kids Fun Run course that was set up around the Brambleton Town Center & trails.step sisters jsrealty4u superhero

The first one from our team to cross the finish line was Beth! Way to go!!
step sisters jsrealty4u

Beth was quickly followed by Scott, Jackie, Sarah, and the rest of the team.

The Step Sisters are always looking for new ways to meet the needs of breast cancer patients and continue to add new services. You can learn more about how to volunteer or join one of their fun events at StepSisters.org.

Buying a New Construction Home

The Benefits of Buying a New Construction Home

Over the next year the JS Realty Team will be laying out the advantages of buying a new construction home by Van Metre – as well as the ins and outs of the buying process!

JS Realty Van Metre BuyingThe first installment of this series is the Benefits of Buying a New Construction Home. Advantages range from custom design, energy efficiency, safety due to modern technology, resale value, long-term savings, low maintenance, financing options, rewards, community amenities and so much more!

JSRealty4U Van metre homes buyingDesign It Yourself – molding packages, cabinets, countertops, appliances, backsplash, carpets, tiling, bath & kitchen fixtures, light fixtures throughout the home, even hardware!

You Choose – floor plan, room layout, it’s all up to you!

Van Metre JSRealty4U buying newNew homes are more energy efficient, and event come with energy certifications that cover the walls, roof, windows, doors, and appliances. And, your home will have a higher resale value than older homes due to its state of the art technology.

Safer – now that there are more building codes in place, you can be sure your home was built safely.

Breathe Easy – new, state of the art air ventilation and air filtration is used during construction.

No Faulty Utilities – everything will be new! No worrying about old pipes bursting, dangerous electrical wiring, or unknown issues behind drywall.

Unbiased Inspection – a pre-drywall inspection is conducted by an independent home inspector.

Hi-tech Wiring – your home will be wired for high speed internet access, electronics, entertainment systems, and security.

Fire Safety – smoke and carbon dioxide detectors are hard wired into the home, backed up with battery power in the case of an outage. Modern fire retardant material is used in carpeting and insulation.

Over the years you’ll save money on utilities, especially since a tighter sealed building envelope prevents air from escaping. These brand new homes come with a warranty, too – furnace, water heater, air conditioning unit, kitchen appliances, and roof warranties.

paint jsrealty4u preparing sellingBuying an established home can also come with a higher price tag than expected. These homes will more than likely need at least one of the following items updated in the next ten years, and it can be expensive – not to mention exhausting trying to keep up.

HVAC –  depending on size, an A/C Unit will cost $5,000 and up to replace.

Furnace – depending on the size of the unit, will run at least $4,000.

Flooring – carpets get worn, tile cracks. At some point you’ll need new floors,  which will run $2,000 and up depending on the quality of the material and the size of the room(s).

New Roof – replacing the roof will cost $5,000 and up. New roofs last about 25 – 40 years.

Curb appeal – painting the exterior can run upwards of  $5,000.

Upgrades – Upgrading and remodeling a full kitchen can cost over $20,000.  Just replacing the appliances can set you back $5,000.  And you’re looking at $5,000 or more to remodel a bathroom.

New construction homes have a better, more efficient design, which allow for lower maintenance due to the new building materials. After settlement, there’s no work to do and nothing to update or replace. Everything in the home is not only new, but it’s what you picked out!

JS Realty Calculating Money FinanceVan Metre has an affiliated lender that is able to custom tailor a loan to your specific situation and even offer assistance with closing costs.
