My clients, Mehwish and Sajjad had a very good idea what they wanted when we started our search almost 3 months ago. Armed with some thoughts on location and amenities they wanted and needed- they had got an FHA approval with their lender, Wesley Burdette from Access Capital Mortgage. Once we figured out what they wanted to spend per month on a payment, we went house shopping! We looked at several short sales and a few foreclosures. We stopped at new home communities in South Riding, Stone Ridge and Braddock Corner and a few in Herndon as well. Mehwish wanted a new home, Sajjad wanted an end unit town home wherever they ended up. We found a fantastic home in Faulkner's Landing, Ashburn. These are Beazer homes that are 2 years old. The community is selling in the low $300's. My clients actually got a price below their budgeted amount and we got the seller to pay 3% in closing costs! Short sales can be scary but I have successfully sold plenty and have also listed short sales and navigated the way for my clients in all cases! Congratulations to my friends and Clients, Mehwish and Sajjad - many happy years in your new home!!!
