fairfax county: The Buying Process in Fairfax County, Virginia - 03/01/17 12:48 PM
The process for purchasing a home in Fairfax County is the same as anywhere in the Commonwealth of Virginia but different from the procedures that are used in many states. Unlike the New York, each party is not represented at closing by a attorney. Instead, a settlement company manages the transaction.  The settlement company’s attorney represents the contract, and not any one party at the table. When the buyer and seller agree to a contract, the buyer will deposit money into escrow. The settlement agent will direct the transfer of escrow funds. In Northern Virginia, there are no closing meetings. It … (0 comments)

fairfax county: Demand is Strong for Well-Prices Homes - 02/07/16 11:22 PM
Yes, houses will sell as long as they are priced right. In many — but not all places — that means they’re priced low.
“People who price their homes to the market are selling them in a reasonable amount of time, but people who cling to 2004 or 2005 prices aren’t,” says Richard Smith, president and CEO of Realogy, the parent company of Century 21, ERA, Coldwell Banker and Sotheby’s International Realty.
In some areas, pent-up demand has exploded. “It’s crazy,” says Brendon DeSimone, an associate with Paragon Real Estate in the Noe Valley near San Francisco. “I had one house … (0 comments)

WASHINGTON (December 9, 2015) — Homeowners preparing to sell often make improvements, both big and small, to their homes that can help yield positive results and garner top dollar from buyers.

fairfax county: 4 Personal Benefits of Volunteering - 11/30/15 04:51 AM
I recently started volunteering as a coach for Fort Hunt Youth Basketball and I believe volunteering has some great benefits.
Friendship- When people get together, relationships are formed. After coaching a few practices, it’s not uncommon for volunteers to exchange phone numbers or social media information. By giving just a small amount of time, lifetime bonds may be established. Community- Building with your community gives a sense of pride. Whether you are volunteering at your local recreation center or at your local food kitchen, this will save money. Saving money saves resources and funds can now go toward other local improvements. … (1 comments)

fairfax county: Should I Rent or Buy? - 11/30/15 04:26 AM
Is it time to take the plunge into the home buyers’ world?
If the idea of purchasing your first home or just buying the next home is on your mind, I have some thoughts to add to the collection you’ve already been making in your own mind.  Sometimes moving seems like an exciting experience and other times just a nuisance.  The act of actual moving is totally irrelevant, though when it comes to actually achieving movers happiness.
In order to gauge the level of success you’ve achieved from a move some factors must be taken into account.  The first that I’ve noticed when … (1 comments)

fairfax county: Contingencies in Real Estate Sales Contracts - 11/23/15 03:45 AM
Real estate contracts often have contingencies. A contingency is a clause in a contract that gives either the buyer or seller a way to get out of the contract if certain conditions or timelines aren’t met. A contract could be contingent on anything a buyer and seller agree to, but there are a few very common contingencies. Typical contingencies are:

fairfax county: Why sign a buyer’s representation agreement? - 11/23/15 03:42 AM
July 1, 2012 agents are now required to have buyer representation in writing in the state of Virginia. Realtors must disclose which party represented in a transaction prior to showings. Without a clear understanding, many clients are hesitant to sign (perhaps you do not know the agent well enough to commit or think there is a fee for a buyer rep- there is not). I would recommend signing a limited agreement for a day to view 1 to 2 homes. If you are comfortable  with the agent after the initial meeting, then extend the agreement for the purpose of finding your … (1 comments)

fairfax county: Did You Know ‘Missing Households’ Plague Housing Recovery - 11/23/15 03:38 AM
High unemployment among young adults is prompting a big loss in household formation that is critical for long-term housing demand, according to housing experts.
Of 25 to 34 year olds, about 75 percent were employed in September; that’s about the same as year-ago levels and near the levels during the recession, The Wall Street Journal reports.
Young adults who are unemployed are mostly opting to live with their parents and aren’t renting or owning their own place. Indeed, the number of adults under the age of 35 who are living at home is at the highest level since 1981. More than … (0 comments)

fairfax county: According to Census, Americans on the Move Again - 11/23/15 03:31 AM
After staying in place for years, bogged down by the financial effects of the recession, Americans are finally back on the move, according to the latest U.S. Census data.
In 2012, nearly 16.9 million people moved between counties, and 7 million made long-distance moves from one state to another. For long-distance moves, that figure was nearly 5 percent higher than 2010.
The recession had the effect of “freezing people in place” as they waited out a housing and economic slump, and now there’s “at least a thawing,” Kenneth Johnson, a demographer with the University of New Hampshire, told USA Today.

fairfax county: Seven Things Your Realtor, Doesn’t Ever Want to Hear - 11/23/15 03:15 AM
“I’ll know it when I see it.” Buyers should come into the home buying process with a list of must-haves and wants. Buyers that want to be taken seriously get preapproved. This helps to expedite the process of making offers and also to pinpoint the price range of what the buyer can afford. “I’m not in any hurry.” Realtors don’t expect to rush you through the home buying process. At the same time, they don’t want to waste their time with a client that doesn’t have any firm motivation to make offers or to buy. “I’m not going to give it … (1 comments)

What matters in a condo varies by the person, but questions tend to draw from the same pool of questions:

Is the heat included in the condo fee? Do condo fees include utilities? Electricity? If there is carpet, are there hardwood floors underneath? Is the washer and dryer in the unit? On the same floor?
