The USPS Pimmit Branch in the shopping center at Idylwood Plaza, while small, has had a loyal following. A very convenient location for residents in the area from the various rental communities like Peachtree and well as Pimmit Hills and beyond.
However, due to its small size and hidden away location, the usage was never really that large (we did have lines of people after the 1 hour midday closure was added a few years back.)
Condominium fees are one of the things that it seems always go up. As buildings get older more maintenance is required and even the best managed association will need to keep up with inflation and increased utility, labor and material costs.
Idylwood Towers in Falls Church is no exception – below is the condominium fee history from the last 5 years – 2012 fees are not available as of yet.
Many people wonder how the market is. Well, in the Washington DC and Northern Virginia area it can sometimes be really hot! While I have had 4-5 offers and escalation clauses on listings of my own, nothing comes close to the answer I got from an agent when inquiring on the status of a foreclosure in Herndon.
A repeat investor client of mine showed interest in a town home in Herndon. It is a 4 bedroom/3.5 bath foreclosure at Dunbarton Square listed at $164,500. It has been listed for 7 days and said that offers would be submitted in another weeks time (lenders sometimes collect offers for a week or two and then review.)
Earlier this year the board at Woodburn Village approved the new increased condominium fees for Woodburn Village for FY2012 that starts October 1.
Keep in mind that the condominium fees at Woodburn Village includes all utilities (including heating and cooling) as well as extensive grounds and amenities like a swimming pool and tennis courts.
