How much does a short sale cost in Lake Braddock, Burke, VA? Dan and Traci & Consultants with Keller Williams Realty Associate Broker shares information about how much does a short sale cost. A short sale is a type of transaction that involves selling a home that is in default. With this process, the house is sold for less than what the homeowner owes on the mortgage and the lender takes less than what it is owed. The price of a short sale can vary depending on the lender and the seller. Typically a short sale will not cost the homeowner any money. All fees are paid through the sale proceeds. However, if there are required repairs due to pest or roof problems you the seller may be responsible for the cost of the repair if the lender does not allow the repairs to be paid from the sale pr...

    How's the real estate market? We are asked that question every day. This report addresses home  sales activity in the popular Burke community.

All I Wanted Was an Ice Cream Sundae?  Is That So Hard? It was near one-hundred degrees in Northern Virginia today, but felt much worse with the heat index.  Can't tell you what exactly.  I'm pretty sure my brain melted at the door step of my 10:30am appointment in Bristow.  Even my car was little comfort with the A/C blasting over me.  So after a long morning/early afternoon in the car I made a melted brain decision.  ICE CREAM FOR LUNCH.  It's not every day that I get to pass a Friendly ice cream parlor in my travels.  Seems to me there are only two in the tri-county area.  So since my travels took me past Burke, it was time for an ice cold, sweet lunch. It was about two-thirty when I pulled into the parking lot...and I wasn't at all surprised by the large number of cars in the parkin...

  How's the real estate market? We are asked that question every day.  Over the past couple of months,  Burke properties in prime condition and priced correctly  have frequently been going under contract in less than 3 weeks. Reason? The inventory of homes in Northern VA is at a 5 year low and interest rates are at historic lows. 79% fewer homes are available for purchase now than there were in September 2007.See the following graph... If you want to buy a home in great condition you will probably have competition and experience shows that you will need to act promptly.   Before we look at the specifics of the market statistics for Burke's 22015 zip code, let's review the bigger picture in Fairfax County... median sale price figures for the last 5 years are below. You can see the normal...

After checking in on my listing at the Forest at South Run today I decided to make a quick stop at Burke Lake Park.  If you follow my blog it's one of my favorite spots when there is free time in my schedule to walk the 4.7 mile trail or a quck out and back.Today I was stopped in my tracks when I realized that the Cherry Trees in the park were almost in full bloom..  It's FEBRUARY folks.  Normally in Northern Virgina at this time of year we are still bundled up in our down jackets or shoveling snow.This year the National Cherry Blossom Festival is scheduled for March 20 – April 27, 2012.  Hope the blooms on the trees at the Tidal Basin don't reach full bloom weeks before then.

Fortunately my day did not end with a Ferrari crashing through the garage window but I admit I did play hooky most of the day.  In my case it was off to Burke Lake Park. Burke Lake Park is located just off of Route 123 and a few miles from the City of Fairfax. With over 850 acres including a 220 acre lake there is plenty for everyone to enjoy. For the walkers, joggers and bikers the 5 mile dirt loop around the lake is a great way to take in all of the vistas. For the youngsters the miniature train ride chugging along at 10 MPH is a hoot. Want to get in a round of golf? You can do that too at the 18 hole Par 3 course. The Frisbee golf course is a challenge for young and old, though for the life of me the fun of trying to throw a Frisbee through a hoop eludes me! For the young and young a...

Residents of Burke VA have a game they like to play.  It's called name everything with the word “Burke” in it.  Between streets, shopping centers and parks you could easily come up with a 100 locations with the name Burke.  Considering Silas Burke’s role in the development of the area it makes sense. What may be surprising to many is that there were a number of families and are homes in the area that predate the landmark Silas Burke house built in 1824.  One of those homes is Kings Grant. Kings Grant was built on 21 acres of the original Ravensworth Estate.  Ravensworth Estates encompassed 24,000 acres purchased in 1685 by Col. William Fitzhugh.  During the early colonial days it was the largest tobacco plantation in Northern Virginia.   As was customary at the time parcels of big estat...

                                  Tired of pumping to get water into your bucket?  Well then hook it up to the windmill and let mother nature fill it up for you.  In this case the windmill and bucket are part of the scenery as you take the 1.75 mile ride on the miniature train in Burke Lake Park.  The train is on hiatus for the winter and there are major renovations underway for this 40 year old popular destination for children and families in Fairfax County VA.  The train will be ready to chug along again this spring when the station opens again.
