There has been a high level of activity in Woodburn Village this year. Unfortunately, a majority of the sales are foreclosures and short sales. In the few regular re-sales that did take place the prices and appraisals were heavily influenced by the distressed sales. 19 homes sold to date this year. 3 were regular re-sales, 11 were bank sales and 5 were short sales.  Homes on average sell for 95.4% of the original list price. They sell for 97.4% of the final list price. So, if you are looking to purchase in Woodburn odds are that you will be paying close to the current asking price.

The Pinecrest is a community of houses, townhouses and condominiums located just off Little River Turnpike in Annandale VA. The Pinecrest occupies 35 acres of manicured grounds that abut a The Pinecrest golf course, a Fairfax County public course. The Pinecrest very close to the shops and restaurants of Annandale and Alexandria. The Pinecrest is also very close to Green Springs Gardens.   I recently toured the Pinecrest and snapped a few pictures. The condos here feel spacious with a very smart floor plan that brings light and nature into the living space. The fire place is perfectly situated between long tall windows.

It's Halloween and the children in Sleepy Hollow Woods are on the lookout for the Headless Horseman to ride through the neighborhood tonight.  Alright that may be a bit of a stretch but perhaps the quiet as you drive through a neighborhood just minutes away from major commuting routes to DC might seem a bit eerie. First you need to know that there is more than one neighborhood with Sleepy Hollow in its name in Northern Virginia.   In fact there are a number of them in the same area with either a Falls Church or Annandale postal address.  Sleepy Hollow Woods was designed by Dewberry and Davis architects and the first of the 300+homes that make up the community were built in 1959 by Community Builders and I.L. Lewis Realtor Associates. Just like their neighbor Lake Barcroft the area which...

Be sure all heat-producing appliances run the way they are supposed to, including your clothes dryer    Annandale, VA-Janice Bittner, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard in Northern Virginia, is constantly working to increase consumer awareness of the importance of proper dryer venting systems.  Carbon monoxide is an odorless, colorless gas that interferes with how the body processes oxygen; it can be dangerous and deadly.  Symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning include headache, nausea and disorientation.  The dangerous gases are produced inside homes where carbon-containing fuels are incompletely burned.  The gases must be vented to the outside.   Janice advises her customers that when oil or gas furnaces, cooking appliances, water heaters and even clothes dryers are not properly vented, carbon...

As midnight approached the box alarm was sounded for an apartment fire at 4014 Hallman Street with reports of fire in the basement.  Rescue Engine 433 was the first to arrive and reported a two-story apartment building with smoke from the Charlie Side.  As they stretched a line to the rear they noticed a walk out basement with a dryer on fire.  The fire was contained to dryer with minimal extension.  Units were held as the complex was charged with smoke.  Battalion 443 (Ciarrocca) has the Hallman Street Command.

Over the past six months the media has been reporting the "great opportunity" homes buyers have in purchasing a property in "short sale" status.  The message was repeated again and again.  What was missing from that drumbeat was any mention of the reality of the process, which is a far cry from the rosy picture earlier reports painted.  Now just two weeks ago, The Washington Post printed a hard hitting article that laid out the ugly truth: actually closing/settling a short sale is tough and usually doesn't happen. I've had personal experience with this.  Clients put in a contract at the end of March and didn't settle until just last week -- almost 90 days from the day they submitted the offer, compared to the 30 days is takes to settle most traditional sales.  Short sales are not for th...

Are you thinking about buying a home?  Perhaps a townhouse, a condo, or a single family home.  You've been watching the market for a while and think now might be the right time.  Tired of writing that rent check each month, with nothing to show for it and not even being able to paint the walls in your apartment?  Maybe you're doing your taxes right now and realize that you don't have enough tax deductions. These are just a few of the reasons that now might be the right time for you to buy a home. My colleagues and I have been noticing an increased buyer demand during the last 4 weeks or so in the Northern Virginia real estate market.  The weather is starting to get a bit nicer and so are the real estate deals.  To cater to this increased demand, we're proud to offer a free homebuyer sem...
