va homes for sale: GFEs Let You Look Beyond Stonewall Manor Triangle Mortgage Rates - 04/15/13 10:13 AM
Good Faith Estimates — anyone actively comparing mortgage rates in Stonewall Manor Triangle receives them. Yet GFEs seem full of the kind of fine print that we don’t necessarily spend time worrying over: a glance at the bottom line would seem to suffice. Sort of like the kind of golf rule (26-1) thatjustcost Tiger Woods his shot at a 5th green coat.
Like Mr. Woods, even if we do everything else right, not paying close attention to the fine details can cost us. But quite unlike Rule 26-1, the details in GFEs aren’t there to limit our options —  they’re … (0 comments)

Because water damage is Public Enemy #1, homeowner checklists should always highlight three points:

First time homebuyers in Stonewall Manor Triangle are told a lot of things —
“Save your money,” their parents advise.
“Location, location, location!” their friend’s friend cautions.
Reasonable advice, for certain. But there some important elements of the home buying process which a typical Stonewall Manor Triangle first time homebuyer doesn’t usually hear. I’ve listed some of the most important ones, in no particular order:

va homes for sale: A Stonewall Manor Triangle Short Sale Can Aid the Seller, Too - 03/04/13 05:10 AM
A Stonewall Manor Triangle short sale represents real value for the homebuyer, of course. But to some extent, it is also a boon to the seller. Being able to unload a property that’s underwater helps avoid the most dire credit consequences of a Stonewall Manor Triangle foreclosure.
But lingering credit damage can still result from any short sale -- if the short seller allows it to happen. Should you find yourself in the short sale situation, be proactive in protecting your credit score. You will put yourself in a position to re-enter the market sooner than you think if you take … (0 comments)

va homes for sale: The Best Day for Listing Your Stonewall Manor, Triangle Home is… - 02/12/13 08:53 AM

“Mansion” is the Wall Street Journal’s entry into the high-end real estate magazine world. Well, not quite a magazine -- it’s an extra section they run on Fridays. It’s a nice diversion for those who want to read about really rich people selling their properties. More than that, it could actually be an important source of information if you decide to buy a vineyard in the middle of Los Angeles (Bel-Air, actually -- that one was featured last week).
It was another article that caught my eye on Friday, though; one that dealt with a topic we agents have long … (0 comments)

va homes for sale: Real Estate Tax Rumor Outlasts Mayan Calendar - 12/27/12 09:54 PM

Having survived last week’s End of the World, you might think the coast would be clear for a while. But -- at least when it comes to Lorton Station Lorton real estate matters -- some would have you believe we are face-to-face with another extreme dire threat: the Internet buzz about a (gasp!) huge new federal sales tax on all real estate transactions.
