The inventory of Condos for sale in Herndon was 14 homes active on the market as of 1 August 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.

      Tommy: What would you suggest I do in Old Town Herndon today since I get off work early.  By the way my wife is coming with me, we both like ale on tap, we need some custom draperies and some reupholstery work and we want to sit down to a nice dinner with music.                 Also did I mention that we want to walk no more than one hundred feet to accomplish all this since did I mention that we like ale on tap?         Steve: Tommy, this is an easy one. Old Town Herndon is an awesome place to spend the afternoon and on into the evening. I would suggest that you start with a pint at Jimmy's Old Town Tavern along with some great appetizers.              Once you are in the mood to look at fabric selections for your new draperies, walk out the door, turn left walk 15 feet, turn le...

Little Timmy's First Swim Meet. Explain what happened would you?   Doris: Our family went to our first swim meet last Wednesday evening and it was soooo confusing. You were there. Can you tell me what was going on? I could hardly find my child or keep track of when he was swimming! Answerman: I know how you feel Doris. I don’t think my wife and I figured it out until our second season.              There are 40 parents running around organizing and executing necessary duties; all that stuff will take a long time to understand, but the swim meet itself follows the same pattern. Wednesday evening was what our league calls a developmental meet. All eligible kids on the team who show up can swim two events.             The Chantilly Highlands Dophins have 223 kids this season and you guys o...

  Franklin Farm. Beauty in the Burbs. Franklin Farm, Oak Hill VA 20171     You don't often associate neighborhood aesthetics with a housing development. However the planners of  Franklin Farm have left open space and plenty of natural beauty in and around the neighborhood. Its tree lined streets are inviting and its amenities and close proximity to employment and shopping make it a great place to live. It should be on your short list of neighborhoods to visit if you are looking for a home in Western Fairfax County.                Franklin Farm neighborhood photos.                       Franklin Farm is served by Oak Hill Elementary   Lees Corner Elementary, and Scott Crossfield Elementary.                The community has 2 playgrounds, 2 pools with a great swim team: The Franklin Farm ...

If you haven't had the opportunity to attend one of the concerts in downtown Herndon, VA that make up Friday Night Live, why not go tonight? Tonight's concert features  Love Seed Mama Jump, a six-piece rock band from Dewey Beach, Delaware. Their music is described as guitar-driven pop rock -- a blend of modern beats and melodic hooks delivered with powerful, impassioned vocals.   Bring a lawn chair or blanket and get there early for best seats. It is a great place to bring the kids, but you cannot bring any alcohol into the venue, although it is for sale inside. We tried to bring water bottles last week and were told that we could only bring them in if they were unopened. Food is available for sale. The concert starts at around 6:30 and ends around 10:30 pm.  The concert takes place beh...

Are you looking for a home at a bargain price that could benefit from some loving care?   You might want to cast your eyes on the homes which are available as foreclosed or short sales in Herndon Virginia ... I've put together a link to a list of homes which are offered by their owners for less than their current mortgages or have already been foreclosed by Lenders on the resale market on a 1st come,1st served basis.  You need a Realtor to show them and help you through the process ... And Yes, they've already factored in the Realtor cost so you can get the sort of help you'll need to land one of these bargains.  Visit www.reston-area.com/forsale.htm and  look to the links at mid-page for Foreclosed and Short Sale Homes.
