Are AndresenTysons Corner Real Estate For Sale
your sixth sense in real estate
Real estate in the Pimmit Hills subdivision in Falls Church did great in 2011. Over 50 homes sold during 2011 and at a higher "similar home average" than in 2010! The increase in prices is not that significant but the trend seems clear - prices have stabilized and are slowly increasing (graph later in this post.) So, is the turnaround in prices here to stay? Are there still forclosures and short sales in the pipeline? And how long is the typical home taking to sell...Continue Reading!

“When is the best time to purchase a home” and "When is the best time to sell a home" are questions we get all the time here at Soldsense. Homes are in short supply in this area with stable prices and few foreclosures and short-sales. It still takes a lot of time to find suitable homes for clients due to the limited supply in this area - based on the recent year trends my clients may have to wait a few months more. So, if you have...Continue Reading!
As we have written about extensively the Dunn Loring Merrifield Metro area is seeing a massive redevelopment these days. From being a patchwork of new developments (Halstead at the Metro, Wilton House, Westbriar etc) and old light commercial businesses (Remington Mulch, Car repair shops, towing companies etc) it is now turning into a viable and walkable town center destination of its own. Notable current projects include: Route 29 and Gallows Road intersection construction to make the congested area more accessible. Mosaic District with entertainment,...Continue Reading!

I wrote earlier this year about the temporary increased loan limits for conventional and FHA/VA loans expiring. The loan limits did indeed end up expiring. However, Congress voted a little while back to restore those increased loan limits to 125 percent of an areas median price (up to $729,750) for two years. So, in our area this means you can purchase home with a conventional loan with a loan amount up to $729,750 before it will become a jumbo loan. A jumbo...Continue Reading!
The "word on the street" has for a long time been that changes are coming to the area around Anderson Road. With the new Silver Line metro station coming down the street things have really started heating up. The transformation started with the old "shady" Safeway property being replaced by a wonderful new Safeway and new attached storefronts. Multiple other proposals are pending or approved (Scotts Run Station North, Scotts Run Stream Valley Parc/Mitre and at the Capital One property.) Up next seems to be...Continue Reading!
