We can help you sell your property quickly and at the highest price possible.
Here are four things sellers should understand about today’s market to make their homes as saleable as possible:

buying: 5 Indicators You Might Have Found Your New Home - 05/16/13 05:13 AM
The best deals on homes these days are often on properties that aren’t perfect. But that doesn’t mean that home shoppers looking for a great deal can’t find a place with potential.
Location, location, location. You can always fix a property, but you can’t always fix the neighborhood. In the long run, home buyers often get a better deal with the worst house in a great neighborhood than with a fancy house in a not-so terrific neighborhood. Less than 50 years old.

If you’re thinking of buying a new construction, you probably already know that every new development will have its own sales staff. These people are often friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable about the new condominium or new house. However, the on-site sales people work to sell this property only.

But that also means that the on-site sales staff works for the builder.
When in the market for a new condo or a new home, it’s … (3 comments)

I am one of the few people who are from here who are actually from here. That is to say I was born in Fairfax and have lived much of my life in Northern Virginia.
When I got out of the Army and moved back to Northern Virginia, for a time I worked as a government contractor at the Department of Housing and Urban Development, which is located at L’Enfant Plaza in Washington DC.
