Do you like classic older homes? You can still find them in Old Town Herndon. Complete with big yards and big trees. Cape Cods, Victorians, Bungalows, and Farm House styles all are available in the original town of Herndon. Most of Herndon's subdivisions are 25 years old or younger, as is most of Chantilly, Centreville and Ashburn. So if you want to be close to all the high tech work in the Reston/Herndon/Dulles corridor yet live in an environment similar to Grandma's neighborhood, check out the photo tour below:

  A light dusting of snow is melting in Chantilly Highlands from the first flurry of the season. The neighborhood sparkles with Christmas decorations of all kinds....from classic wreaths on the doors and candles in the windows to Santa in a balloon and neon extravaganzas that make the kids smile and draw night time cavalcades of viewers.           Following the Christmas light slide show below is the monthly Chantilly Highlands home sale report and more info for those folks unfamiliar with this great community.             At the end of this post is another photo show of Chantilly Highlands  with leaves on the trees and green grass, in case you forgot what they look like.

The inventory of Condos for sale in Herndon was 7 homes active on the market as of 15 Dec 2010.  Condos sales have really picked up in the Hernon area. They seem to fly off the market and average less than a month's worth of inventory so far this year.  If you've been hanging back, this might be the moment to re-start your shopping.  Visit Available Herndon Homes at http://www.reston-condos.com/forsale.htm  to view currently available condos in Herndon Virginia.

I leave the Virginia area tomorrow to go back the the fabulous and WARMER Florida Keys. Where we are staying is very centrally located to the Reston town center and the World Gate shopping area. We found the World Gate looking for a Starbucks this morning and wandered around to see where we could have lunch. The name World Gate is understandable. They had Chinese, Turkish, Vietnamese, Mexican and Indian Food, or TGI Fridays   I nixed the Friday's choice and any other chain for that matter and anywhere that sold burgers.   I wanted to try some type of food I have never eaten before. After discussing all the possibilities, we ended up at The Supper Club of India. The kind waiter gave us a tour and an explanation of the buffet or we could order off the menu. We order some Appetizer lamb pa...

I am visiting Virginia to meet our new Grandson. He lives in Huntington Beach, Ca. but is spending a couple of weeks on the east coast to see the entire family. Last night, Shane was visiting with is Mom's Mom and today is our day. Spending a Saturday night at a Courtyard in Herdon, Va. right near Reston. The room is clean, good sized, free WiFi and we are paying $59.00 per night. We wanted to have dinner nearby. We asked the front desk for suggestions. Hubby is a steak and a salad guy. There was a Morton's, but we didn't feel like dropping $200. plus  for dinner. They recommended two restaurants in the town center, about a 5 minute drive. One was M & S Steakhouse, which was closed for a private party. The second was Jackson's We walked down to Jackson's. To heck with the decor and all ...

Thanks for stopping by. This little video gives you a quick philosophy for mentally preparing yourself to get your home ready for sale...while staying sane. Spending a bit of time and $ upfront, will not only help you get more money for your property, but your home will sell faster than the competition which has not been as nicely done.    Putting yourself in a video is always risky, so if you find me barely tolerable in this show, please keep in mind that I am only half of our husband and wife real estate team. My wife is actually the nicer person according to general consensus...however, she has zero interest in appearing internationally in an Internet video.  Two heads are often better than one and in this case, our complimentary skills work to give you a team with a unified purpose:...

  Thanks for stopping by the Emerald Chase November homes for sale report. Continued low interest rates and low unemployment in Northern VA have kept properties selling, even though we are approaching the holiday season. Government, military and High Tech relocations has kept our area moving when much of the country's real estate market has languished. Here is the latest data for Fairfax county in graphic format.   As you can see single family home prices have risen 10% from October 2009 data with town houses showing a 3% gain. Has the bottom been hit? No one knows, but these numbers are encouraging. Here is the latest data on home sales in Herndon/Oak Hill's Emerald Chase for November 2010.           This report shows homes for sale in Emerald Chase as of November 22, 2010. Just 2 home...
