MyFairRidgeHome.com Relevant Real Estate Information for the Fair Ridge Townhome Community INTRODUCTION Still pretty slow here at Fair Ridge right now. I must say you must do your homework when you hire an agent to sell your home.  Some of these homes that have sold, should not have sold this low in this neighborhood.   If you want to get top dollar for your home. Interview us.  People try to save money anyway they can and using an agent that is not qualified or does not know anything about the market and Fair Ridge, is going to lose you alot more money, then you think you were saving.

MyPenderbrookHome.com Relevant Real Estate Information for the Penderbrook Community of Townhomes and Condos in Fairfax, VA INTRODUCTION We have some great news to announce for first time home buyers.  FHA is working on passing a bill, where the $8,000 tax credit you would qualify for when you file your tax returns, will now be available to purchase your home with.  Meaning you could use this towards your down payment or closing costs!  This is huge.  This means very little money down to buy a home.  If you were to buy a $300,000 home.  You would only have to put $2,500 down. They got rid of no money down programs last Oct 2008, so this is another amazing opportunity as to why now is the best time to buy!   Contact me for more info, because this has not gone into affect but will soon As...
