The odds are in your favor on this Northern Virginia Short Sale priced at $274,000.  Why are the odds in your favor?  Well, the experience of this Northern Virginia Short Sale Listing Agent has a lot to do with it.  I have been listing Northern Virginia Short Sales since 2007.  And going over my statistics the other day, I realized that 100% of my Northern Virginia Short Sale Listings get Short Sale Approval on their contracts.  If you're willing to wait a minimum of ninety days to get into this condo and call it home, this may be the opportunity for you.

For starters, the location of this condo is outstanding.  When you think of what Fairfax County has to offer, a picture of the perfectly manicured area of Fair Lakes should come to mind. With it's perfect combination of business, shops and residential spaces all a hop, skip and jump to major commuter routes like Interstate 66 or the Fairfax County Parkway, it's no surprise this is such a popular destination for home buyers.  You can live within one mile of three Fair Lakes Shopping Centers and about a mile from Fair Oaks Mall.  For goodness sakes, there's a Whole Foods as the closest grocery store.  For those preferring the tried and true local favs, Safeway is just a block futher.  Here's just a few other restaurants and shops that come to mind as being within the half mile mark:  Target, Best Buy, Thomasville, DSW, Jared, Burger King, Taco Bell, Wendy's, Starbucks, Pei Wei, Chevy Chase Bank, Exxon, Tony's New York Pizza, Bagel Buddies, Food Lion....and much more!

This particular two bedroom, two bathroom condo is located within walking distance of the major intersection of Fairfax County Parkway and Fair Lakes Parkway in Cedar Lakes. Its layout is what you'd expect: contemporary and open. The loft is an area that looks over the kitchen and living room and works easily as a home office, exercise area, or even a third bedroom.

There's plenty of space to spread out while cooking your favorite recipe in the kitchen, and enough cabinet space to store the pots, pans, dishes and your pantry items. Washer and dryer are located just off of the kitchen behind doors. Both bedrooms have attached bathrooms, walk-in-closets and are close in size. The perks of the Master Suite are a slightly longer room and a bathroom with dual vanity, separate shower and tub, and no public entrance. Second bedroom has tub/shower combo and two entrances--one from the bedroom, one from the hall for guests. Speaking of guests, you can enterain with ease in your living room with cathedral ceiling, or serve them a meal in the separate dining area. There is plenty of visitor parking so invite as many guests as you like.

 

Cedar Lakes does have a community pool, and your water bill is paid through the condo fees.  So are trash and snow removal.  If you're interested in making this Northern Virginia Short Sale home, call me and set up a tour.

'Looks like a nice condo, Chris Ann.  90 days sounds good for a short-sale, if my recent experience has been any indication.

Wow!  100% short sale approval on your contracts is amazing.  You've worked really hard to make a name for yourself in this niche and it's certainly paying off.
