p and down Charlottesville’s Downtown Mall on a recent Saturday morning, the literati were looking. At New Dominion Bookshop, the oldest bookstore in town, dating back to 1924, a woman was checking out the Lit Crit section. At the Blue Whale, where original prints, antiquarian maps, and rare volumes sit alongside 20,000 used books, a man was browsing in the philosophy of science section. At Read It Again, Sam folks were eyeing the racks out front. And just off the Mall at Daedalus Used Bookshop, the oldest used bookstore in town, a couple was navigating three floors with 100,000 books in search of . . . What is it with all these people? Haven’t they heard of the Internet, Kindle downloads, free shipping and next day delivery? Chances are they have.

er writers and readers in celebration of books, reading, literacy, and literary culture—is the largest community-based book event in the Mid-Atlantic region, attracting audiences of more than 20,000 each year. That’s why more than 400 authors will be in town for over 260 programs this March 22-26 as part of the 23rd Festival. “I love our book-loving community!” says Jane Kulow, Director of the Virginia Center for the Book, which programs the Festival. “While we’re proud of the audiences we attract from the region and from across the country, Charlottesville and Albemarle County residents have been remarkable in their support for the Virginia Festival of the Book for twenty-three years. Our local community helps keep the Festival going strong; this support brings national attention to the Festival and to the community for being a ‘book-loving town,’ and it aids our efforts to bring in top-notch authors.” Asked what she is especially looking forward to this year, Kulow singles out two programs, one hyper-topical, one highly imaginative. “Given the news cycles of the past year, through the Presidential campaign and since, we all have a greater appreciation for the

Mahadevan calls her first published book, the children’s picture book Princesses Only Wear Putta Puttas, “a labor of love, an embellished version of truthful events that happened during her second trip to India, which Shreya was actually able to remember. It was fascinating to watch her revel and assimilate and embrace so quickly everything she saw and experienced.” Bestselling author Kwame Alexander has written twenty-one books for kids and young adults, including The Crossover, winner of the 2015 Newbery Medal.

New Yorker staff writer Rebecca Mead, author of My Life in Middlemarch, a memoir of the novel’s instructive role in her own life, will speak before the March 23rd performance, at 6:30 p.m. Presented each year by the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities, the Virginia Festival of the Book has produced legions of dedicated fans like Sarah Lawson, who go primed for new discoveries. “It’s always been amazing,” says Lawson, who grew up attending with her librarian parents, “to realize how many things I just stumble into. Prior to working for the Festival I would be very open to just wandering into programs and seeing if they struck my fancy, and often they did. I would learn something new, or find a new author that I loved. I think that joy of discovery is such an important part of the Festival, and something that is so crucial and so loved by the local community and the people who attend each year.” That’s for sure. n

CURB APPEAL CAAR REAL ESTATE WEEKLY WWW.CAAR.COM

HOUSE & HOME

MARCH 15 - MARCH 21, 2017 ISSUE 26-11

YOU’VE PROBABLY HEARD THE TERM

“curb appeal” that often hovers over discussions of the marketability of a property, but just what is it? “Curb appeal is an individual preference,” declares REALTOR® David Sloan of Sloan Manis Real Estate in Charlottesville, “but I think of a home that is well-landscaped, with a yard that is cut and green and well cared for. The house itself is bright and painted and neat and inviting. In fact, that’s the one word—inviting—that says it all, regardless of architecture, design or location.” Studies show that many buyers won’t even get out of the car if they don’t find a place inviting. And with an estimated 80 to 90 percent of people doing online reconnaissance, never forget they can be turned off from even viewing a property based on the listing photos alone. Addressing a place’s curb appeal is critical in marketing a property, so we’ll offer you some easy, and in many cases inexpensive, tips for maximizing exterior sales appeal. For starters, you want the property to look clean, welcoming and comfortable with that certain something that attracts potential buyers. Fortunately, it’s relatively easy to provide in most cases

One word—

inviting —says it all,

regardless of architecture, design or location. An Appealing Yard We sometimes tend not to “see” things we look at all the time, like a slightly dented mailbox or a rusty downspout. Usually you just drive home, but now take time to approach your property on foot studying it carefully and critically for places to spruce it up. The yard itself offers prospective buyers their first impression, so be sure it’s in top shape. Remove dead branches in trees and shrubbery. If landscaping is overgrown, do some judicious pruning or hire experienced yard workers. And perform the trimming at least six weeks before putting the property on the

market so bushes have a chance to sprout out again. Ensure the lawn is fresh and green. At least a month before the house will be on the market, consult with a nursery about refurbishing the lawn with quick-acting fertilizer, reseeding, or replacing bad spots with sod. Be sure it is nicely mowed all the time and edged tidily along the driveway, sidewalk and gardens. If you already have nice flowerbeds, apply fresh mulch. If you don’t, spring for some handsome containers with cheerful, seasonal flowers by the front door. And always be sure the yard is clear of “stuff ” from children’s toys to hoses on the lawn to trash cans in plain sight.

The Dwelling’s Best Foot Forward Take a critical look at your front sidewalk, steps, and porch. If there are cracks, can they be repaired? Are there mossy bricks or mildewed concrete to clean? If you will be showing the property at night, have walkways well lighted. Inexpensive solar lighting can provide an inviting pathway to the front door. The front door is the home’s face to the world, so be sure it’s spotless. Give it a fresh coat of stain or bright paint—red is especially inviting and seen by many as auspicious.

SETS HOMES APART BY MARILYN PRIBUS


Window glass should be sparkling clean inside and out. Take a good look at your windows from the outside and, if possible, have the curtains or blinds look more or less uniform. Having the blinds raised and curtains open is friendly instead of looking like there might be something to hide. If visitors are expected on a gloomy day or in the evening, welcome them by having all rooms brightly lit. Consider replacing your mailbox or, at the very least, repainting it. Straighten your rural mailbox post and paint it to match your house or front door. You can even plant a small garden around the post. Always remember REALTOR® Sloan’s key word for curb appeal: “Inviting!” n Marilyn Pribus and her husband live in Albemarle County near Charlottesville. When they sold their California home, their REALTOR® recommended serious pruning of shrubbery which did indeed make the house seem more welcoming.

Be sure the doorknocker, doorbell button, and lockset are up to date and shiny and that they match each other and the house’s style. Check that your house number is clearly visible from the street and easy to read. A seasonal wreath on the door is very appealing. Be sure porch light fixtures are dust- and spider-web free, and the bulbs work. Invest in a fresh welcome mat. If the porch or driveway is stained, consider a good scrubbing. In fact, pressure washing is a relatively inexpensive way to freshen up any property. The appearance of driveways and sidewalks, most siding and decks can be freshened up quite easily. Pressure washers can be rented by the day. Be sure the garage door is clean as well. If it requires repainting, opt for the same hue as the house, but in a slightly darker shade. Highlight any attractive and distinctive features your home already has. For example, you might touch up the trim and shutters if you have them. It you have a dramatic chimney, be sure it’s free of ivy and the mortar is fresh. Buyers are especially aware of roofs because of the expense of replacement. Replace damaged or missing shingles. Be sure there are no rusty, mossy, or mildewed areas. Clean out gutters. Repaint or replace any rusty, loose, or dented gutters or downspouts.
