Wonderful updated 4br/2.5ba single family home in much desirable Tysons Green in Tysons Corner (Vienna, 22182.)

We did an article on overcrowding a while back (Overcrowding in Fairfax County – When is One More Tenant One Too Many) that has received a lot of hits on our website. That goes to show that there is a lot of confusion out there as to what is allowed and what is not allowed in regards to limiting occupancy.
The conflict is generally between HUD (that typically deems reasonable occupancy to be 2 persons per bedroom) and local jurisdictions and building codes (that calculates reasonable occupancy based on square footage of the bedroom.) As few agents and landlords want to get a Fair Housing violation, they typically choose to abide by the HUD/Fair Housing laws to be on the safe side.
The like-new condominium has highly desirable features like hardwood floors, 9’ ceilings, gourmet kitchen with granite counters and stainless steel appliances, large walk-in closets and a full size washer and dryer. Numerous windows let lots of light in and you have you very own patio accessible from the living room.
Fortnightly Square was built in 2005 and has controlled access entry and garage parking. The unit comes with one reserved garage spot – additional parking is available in front of the building. The home is about 950 sq/ft, has a condo fee of $380 per month and is listed at $259,000.

We just listed a great home in Brittany Parc at Tysons inside the beltway. The home is about 10 years old but when you see the home inside and out it feels brand new. The four bedrooms (a 5th bedroom in the lower level just needs a closet), 3.5 baths, large open kitchen, 2 car garage parking, a great neighborhood, a fantastic location inside the beltway and walk to restaurants combines into exactly what most buyers are looking for!

CNN ran a story today about the return of the pocket listings in hot housing markets. With the market being as hot as it is in Northern Virginia buyer agents use all the tricks they know to find properties not listed in the MRIS.
I wrote a story about pocket listings last year ( Does A Pocket Listing Line Your Pocket ) and why they are almost always a bad idea for sellers:
A typical seller will be put at a monetary disadvantage by not exposing the home to as many purchasers as possible from the start. By the law of supply and a demand, a pocket listing would on average sell for less than one that was available for all to see and make an offer on. In my view a general pocket listing policy by a real estate brokerage a-la “we only allow in-brokerage sales of our listings the first 7 days” is unethical. The problem is when it is the listing brokerage that pushes for the pocket listing for their own gain – a pocket listing initiated by a client (for whatever reason) I don’t really see any issue with.
When we photograph homes for a real estate listing we typically take pictures of most of the rooms in the home. The exceptions would be standard size closets, storage areas, attics and garages.
Preparing for a photo shoot is somewhat similar to staging your home for showings and open houses. However, for the pictures we will generally move around items and keep more things out of sight than you would for regular showings. For example, a trashcan will be removed for a photograph but it is not expected to be removed from sight for a showing.
Below is a Top 9 list of items you should consider completing before we come to take pictures of your home. Great shots will bring in more potential purchasers and will get you a better price! When you list with us, you will receive the full list of 50 items that should be done to make your home fantastic.
We just listed a great single family home for sale in Woodbridge, Virginia. It is a renovated 3br/1.5ba detached home with granite counters, stainless steel appliances, tile floors and a gourmet cooking range (gas.) The home has two levels with the lower level being walkout to a rear patio. The rear patio overlooks a large treed backyard. The backyard is fenced and has a shed. There is ample parking available in the driveway and on the street in front of the home. Central A/C for upstairs. There is potential for another room with a window in the basement. Being sold As-Is.
At the Gates of McLean there have been few homes sold during the first 4 months of 2013. Only two units closed – a 1 bedroom at $270,000 and a 2 bedroom at $348,000. Both units had some updates but nothing extraordinary. That is an increase of about 10% from the average for those models from 2012. Inventory was very low at the beginning of the year so it will be interesting to see if that will be the trend. There are three pending 1 bedroom units currently so we should know in not too long if these were on-offs!
We just listed this wonderful 1st level Chelsea model at the Gates of McLean . The unit has laminate floors and upgraded ceramic tile in the kitchen, foyer and bathroom. Community amenities include gated access, contol access building, wonderful outdoor swimming pool, gym, playground, theater etc. Walk to future McLean Silver Line Metro stop.
The community is gated and has well kept grounds. The Gates of McLean consists of multiple buildings of two styles: mid-rise and garden. The mid-rise style has controlled building access, heated hallways and underground parking available (does not come with all units.) The garden-style has open hallways and there is surface parking only. There are numerous 1, 2 and 3 bedroom models available. All the units have an open floor plan with open kitchens and they typically come with a full-size washer and dryer. Read the rest of this entry »
