With 4 bedrooms and 2.5 baths the home is a lot larger than it looks from the outside with over 2,000 sq/ft of total space. There are two yards, one landscaped front yard off the rec room and one rear yard off...Continue Reading!
If you are used to calling up an agent at random to see a home you found online you now have to jump through one extra hoop. Unless you are calling up the listing agent directly you are now required in most instances to have a written agreement for another real estate agent to show you a home. Prior to July 2012 it wasn't so - you could call up an agent and ask to see a home - and in many cases...Continue Reading!

That is great news for the owners and...Continue Reading!
Real estate in the Pimmit Hills subdivision in Falls Church did well in 2012. 47 homes sold in the MRIS in 2012 with a high demand for homes.

The number of foreclosures and short sales in the community keep going down – last year so there were...Continue Reading!

A lot of the attention in real estate has been towards distressed sales the last few years. While foreclosures and short-sales never really ruined the market in Fairfax County, some local areas did see values decimated by distressed...Continue Reading!

It is clear that people believe...Continue Reading!
