This Warrenton Short Sale, located in The Villas at the Ridges of Warrenton, hit the market on October 8th, 2010 priced at $265,000.  It had only one loan through VHDA (Virginia Housing Development Authority.)  When we didn't have an offer by October 25th, the Sellers lowered the price to $248,000.  And on November 22nd, we had an offer.  A cash offer.  However, when VHDA did their evaluation of the property, the appraisal revealed a $270,000 market value.  The cash buyer was unwilling to go that high, and VHDA wouldn't take a cent less, so we put it back on the market on December 28th. The $270,000 sales price was a tough one during the winter months.  The competition was priced below, though none in the neighborhood had SOLD below that price.  So we waited.  And on May 1st, 2011 we go...

Yesterday my best friend in life encouraged me   no she insisted I take a day off and join her and her sister for the Historic Garden Week  Orlean Country Tour put on by the Garden Club of Virginia. She said, let's do something fun, something that we both love.  What's that I asked " she said looking at gorgeous home and walking beautiful gardens!"  Well, she didn't have to twist my arm to hard. What I thought and had planned for was a few hours away from the office. Ha! When we began to walk up to the first home and saw the barns and flowers and the tree's and the blue skies above,I turned off my cell phone! At that moment, everything else could wait. Worse yet, I didn't bring my camera. I was so taken with the beauty that I was seeing, I whipped out my iPhone and walla I captured some...

I walked into my Long & Foster office in Gainesville, Virginia this afternoon after a long Monday.  A Monday is a Monday no matter what you do for a living and mine got started off on the wrong foot because I made the critical mistake of stepping on the scale before heading out for the day.  Guess it'll be water and salad for me for a while.  Not that my Broker noticed the extra "fluff."  The outfit I was wearing must have hid those extra pounds.  She commented on my slimming down.  It's an optical illusion and we ladies are great at them. This Warrenton, Virginia Short Sale is no illusion.  It's a VHDA Short Sale, which means we're dealing with a local bank (only one bank) and already have a negotiator who has told us that it will take a MAX of 45 days, MINIMUM of 30 days, to go throug...

Saturday this weekend past was a perfect day to go out for a drive along Route 29 South and have a light breakfast at one of my favorite country dinners.  The Town and Country Restaurant in Warrenton VA!  It is easy to get to all you have to do is stay on Route 29 South and it's on your left after you go through Haymarket VA and enter Fauquier County VA. The restaurant as you can see on the map below is a midpoint between Gainesville and Warrenton, in New Baltimore.  The prices are right, the food is good, there is a breakfast buffet, a pot of coffee for the table,  and you feel like you are a million miles away from DC in another age and time.  I just love retro, and this is priceless!  It is the perfect way to start a Saturday when you plan to go out for a country drive and tour the h...

Formerly known as Vint Hill Pool, Larry Weeks Community Pool is fun for the whole family. My kids and I got a chance to visit today and had a blast swimming the afternoon away. The fees are reasonable compared to other area pools that we've gone to this summer. They do have a concession stand and plenty of lifeguards on hand. There were several day camps there and therefore no shortage of kids to splash along with!  The whistle is blown at quarter til each hour, so plan your arrival and check-in accordingly. Plenty of seating to eat your snack or lunch. Enjoy and we plan to do swim lessons in August offered at the pool.

Just got back from settlement.  This lovely single family home in Warrenton was a short sale.  There were two separate lien holders, a first and second mortgage.  The house would not sell for what was owed.  The owners contacted me and listed the home for short sale on February 26th.  On March 1st we received the offer that ended up going to settlement today, May 28th. The home sold for it's full list price of $234,500.  And you can see that the time it took to get an offer and go to closing was not as bad as you may hear.  And I'm here to tell you that the second trust on this one was not at all easy to deal with. If you are having trouble maintaining your residence and can't refinance with loan modification, give me a call.  I am an experienced short sale agent. Chris Ann Cleland, Rea...
