property: The Art of the Price - 12/06/13 02:26 AM
Pricing is an art form that requires experience, a delicate touch and an understanding of what sets the price in your condominium community. If you need to sell your condo quickly: don’t reach for the highest price you could expect. Aggressive prices rarely sell quickly. On the other hand, there is no need to panic or become desperate. Don’t price too low and walk away from your equity. Price is very important, but if there is no market for your condo, you won’t get more market by giving away your equity. In a slower market, it’s a good idea to remain … (2 comments)

property: Do you know what happens when zoning laws change the value of a property? - 12/05/13 01:56 AM
Let’s say an imaginary developer named Harold Dumas owns a 100-acre tract of land along a major river. Harold plans to build a riverfront community
on this property; however, just before Harold applies for his building permit, he learns that the County has changed the zoning on his land. He is now prohibited from building residential development on this property. His property currently used as farmland can be used only as farmland or for light industrial usage. Can Harold expect compensation from the county for the loss he thinks he has suffered?
Harold could expect compensation for his property if the … (0 comments)

property: About Home Ownership - 11/26/13 12:23 AM
Of course as a homeowner you’ll now be responsible for maintenance and repairs on the house. You’ll be a part of the neighborhood watch and the garden club.

property: Buying later? Check your credit now. - 11/19/13 05:30 AM
It’s a good idea to checking your credit score before you actually decide to purchase a home, townhome or condo. Even if you think your credit scores are good, you will want to see what the bank will be considering and the scores they will be examining.
If you check your credit history now, you can find out about errors while there is still time to make a correction. You don’t want to find out about credit reporting errors at the last minute. Equifax, Trans Union and Experian (the major credit reporting bureaus) are ponderous and slow to react to problems. … (0 comments)

property: Alexandria’s Civil War Memorial - 11/07/13 02:13 AM

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
One of the busiest intersections in Old Town Alexandria VA occurs where Prince St. crosses Washington St. This intersection is dominated by a
memorial of the U.S. Civil War. Over the years, and on several occasions, drivers have crashed their vehicles into the statue. As a result some folks filed petitions to have the memorial moved. But the
statue has not moved and remains a fixture in Alexandria.
I doubt the statue ever will be moved because of the historical significance of the statue’s location. In 1861, at the place where … (0 comments)

property: Hollin Hills the future of homes … yesterday - 11/07/13 02:09 AM

Designed by renowned architect Charles M. Goodman and developed by Robert Davenport in the late forties, Hollin Hills brought contemporary style to home construction in Northern Virginia.
The community of houses with large expanses of glass, sleek lines, and unusual siting has earned national recognition from the early fifties to the present.
Landscape designs for Hollin Hills homes were prepared by landscape architects Lou Bernard Voigt, Dan Kiley and Eric Paepcke to reflect the belief that interior spaces should flow into exteriors, and that grounds of one home should merge with the next, all in a park-like setting. These original … (0 comments)

property: Big-Ticket Homes in Higher Demand - 11/07/13 01:38 AM
The luxury home market is gaining momentum, with prices rising and many areas where upscale housing once struggled now turning into a seller’s market, according to the Institute for Luxury Home Marketing.
“Prices have been trending up fairly strongly since the beginning of the year,” Laurie Moore-Moore, the institute’s founder, recently told the Chicago Tribune. “Inventory has been tight, though we’re starting to see a little growth in inventory again. It’s not stock-market driven, not necessarily. When you look back at the housing-market downturn, the low point probably was in 2007. Typically, a downturn would be driven by high mortgage-interest rates, … (0 comments)

Condo Alexandria manages several properties at Island Creek. Last night the vehicle of one of our tenants was towed.

Landlord and the tenants are entitled to all the benefits and rights of the subject association Our tenants and landlords are bound by the same rules and regulations as everyone else. We also believe that we are part of a community and as such … (2 comments)
