Finding a mortgage that's right for you should be easy. There are literally hundreds of options to choose from, including Fixed Rate, Adjustable Rate, Hybrids, Interest Only, Monthly Option ARMs, and Pay Select Mortgages, to name just a few. Mortgages are available at rates ranging from an introductory rate of 1.00% to well over 10.00%. You can finance up to 100% of your home's value and, in some cases, your closing costs as well. However, because there are so many options available, it's important to seek advice from an experienced mortgage professional who has your best interest at heart. The first step in determining which program is right for you is to ask yourself the important questions listed below. These questions can also help you confirm that you've chosen the right mortgage ...

If you happen to live within or close to any of the communities near the Chantilly or South Riding area, and you'd like to catch a summer concert, you can still do so.  South Riding has a Summer Concert program with different artists every Friday, or at least many Friday evenings.  The concerts are free, and they run through the end of September. The artists are serious performers with impressive backgrounds and there is quite a mix of music styles.  Full details on the South Riding Proprietary website.Then again, if you are in that concert mood, you could kick it up a level, and go to WolfTrap.  Living in the Northern Virginia area has its special pleasures (traffic not being among them), and one of those is the occasional concert at the WolfTrap Center for the Performing Arts.
