Tuesdays are all about great communities.  After spending the weekend roaming around Lansdowne during their spring festival I decided to highlight the luster of the well designed community that is showing it's true beauty this Spring.  Every time I drive through the community I find myself saying 2 things.... Wow, that is a beautiful home How the heck did I end up over here?  The community has so many cul-de-sacs and turns around the golf course that it is not a normal grid-like road system that is easy to figure out, at least for me.  Good To Know: Lansdowne has 2,155 homes.  1,422 Detached... 713 others (I am not sure this number includes the condos currently being built around the town center.  It was built by well know local builders; Centex, Beazer, Brookfield, and Van Metre.  Lans...

Tuesdays are all about great communities, and this week I want to highlight a new community in Leesburg called Selma Estates. Land comes at a premium price in Northern VA, but once you see the views in this community you will understand why.  Only about 5 minutes out past the Leesburg Outlets off of Route 15 North past Raspberry Falls and White's Ferry you will find yourself in a land flowing with milk and honey.  I'm not sure its Heaven but it feels a little more like it than your average cramped and busy life style of Northern VA. Selma is being built by 3 luxury builders in the area; Craftmark Homes, Winchester Homes, and Edgemoore Homes.  The community will consist of 278 homes built on mostly 1/2 acre to 3/4 acre home sites.  40 of the sites will be offered on 10+ acre home sites. ...

SHORT SALE AND FORECLOSURE LISTINGS IN LEESBURG, LOUDOUN COUNTY, VA A "short sale" listing of a home for sale in Leesburg is a property that the owner needs to sell and they owe more to the bank or mortgage company than the prices of homes in the area.  The bank has agreed to accept less than the Leesburg home owner owes.  Foreclosures also offer opportunities for home buyers.  While foreclosed homes may sometimes need cosmetic work after closing, the home owner benefits from their "sweat equity".  These homes, in most cases, have been discounted for condition.  There are, however, foreclosed homes for sale that are in excellent condition.  Unlike government foreclosures, these homes are bank owned and generally in good condition.Short sales and foreclosures are offering opportunities f...
