Is Flipping Properties a Flop?

Tysons Corner Real Estate For Sale

Making a quick buck flipping homes seem easy on TV - purchase a run-down home, paint and replace flooring, put in some new grass and then sell for a huge profit.

I often get inquiries from buyers looking for a good fixer upper or an investment to flip. They'll typically give me their info and tell me to call them...Continue Reading!

Does A Pocket Listing Line Your Pocket?

Should We Give Out More Free Money?

Tysons Corner Real Estate For Sale

Underwater borrowers have been offered various bail-out programs since the mortgage and market meltdown. Most of those programs failed to make a significant impact as they addressed variable high interest rates and not negative equity. Most financially strapped homeowners won't pour money into a home where they owe significantly more than it is worth - even if they can refinance.
