Falls Church, VA Real Estate News

I tried a little test yesterday to see if local agents were reading my blog and it proved successful. Here is what I did.... Yesterday at a little after 10am, I did a post on my outside blog about a local event (adding a key word that would rarely be used) and then I decided to see if the post would be duplicated. Well this morning I got my answer. At around 9pm last night (less that 12 hours later) the same subject (words moved around a bit) was posted on a local agents blog. Is this copying? Is it a copyright issue? are you a "COPY-CAT"? No not really... I am flattered that you see me as the "source for information" in the our area. Hey wouldn't a "back-link" to me be fair? Again thanks for reading!

Learning a new city or county can be overwhelming enough, but to add insult to injury, here in Northern Virginia we have: Falls Church City AND Falls Church in Fairfax County Alexandria City AND Alexandria in Fairfax County Fairfax City AND Fairfax County It's critical to know which area you're talking about -- services and schools are provided by the jurisdiction and can vary widely! Falls Church City, for example, has its own school district. But you could have a mailing address of Falls Church and instead be part of Fairfax County, and part of their school district. Even within the "Falls Church" portion of Fairfax County, the high school district might be Marshall, McLean, Stuart, or something else! (And to make it even more confusing for out-of-towners, the East Falls Church metro ...

With the construction crews frantically working it appears that some agencies slated for the big BRAC move in 2011 have been given an opportunity for a three year extension.  The Department of Defense has announced that agencies in leased office space may extend those leases until 2014.  The benefit is two fold.  First in a time when commercial real estate is feeling the pinch of a down market the owners of buildings in Crystal City and Alexandria will have more time to find new tenants.  With the concern over the timeline and completion of buildings and road infrastructure also looming it gives more time to make sure that the impact of 20,000 plus jobs in the area doesn’t cripple the already over crowded roads.The plan to move all of these jobs to new buildings at Fort Belvoir, the old...

I have to sell this property quickly in order to close on another deal in a timely manner, so my loss (in potential profit) will be your gain. I intend to sell this at 40 percent of its fair market value ($100K), so it definitely has plenty of equity!! To directly access this property, use this shortcut: http://www.fizber.com/virginia-buy-duplex-triplex-multi-family-home-11647026.html

There has been reasonable activity in Pimmit Hills this year. It seems like investors and homeowners are realizing the value of the community. The last few offers I made on Pimmit Hills homes competed with multiple offers from other competing agents with the sales price ending up at or above asking price.  There have been 16 homes sold in the first 5 months of the year. The lowest price was a 3br/1ba rambler at $279,900. The max price was a 5br/4.5ba new construction foreclosure at $720,000. The average price for all homes sold was $374,646. Homes on average sell for 94% of the original list price. They sell for 99.3% of the final list price. So, if you are looking to purchase in Pimmit Hills odds are that you will be paying close to the current asking price. Pimmit Hills Sold YTD: htt...
