I recently wrote a thank you letter in the form of an email to a former friend and mentor.  It was simply to tell him that I was doing well, and thanking him for all his help in the past year.  See, I worked as a Litigation Support Consultant in the Washington DC area under his rein as CEO.  We had weekly sales meetings, strategy building sessions, and conference calls where I learned more than I could have even imagined. I felt is was time he deserved to hear how my life was affected in such a positive way. To my surprise I received an email a few short days later telling me he had written an article about ME, yes ME!  This former CEO thought enough about me to write an article on his blog that generates over 10,000 hits a day about his Realtor .  I was incredibly honored while astonis...

MyPenderbrookHome.com Relevant Real Estate Information for the Penderbrook Community of Townhomes and Condos in Fairfax, VA INTRODUCTION I just noticed that of the 29 homes on the market in Penderbrook 8 of these have been on the market less than 90 days !   The only thing that is moving is bank owned properties and properties where the owner has finally decided to come down in price.  So its obvious that you are going to have to come down in price, so why would you want to sit on the market for 120+ days until you bring the price down ?  It just doesnt make sense.  Yes I know you want to get the most money for your property but letting it sit on the market for 90+ days is not doing so. You miss out on all the prospective buyers in the first couple weeks you are on the market. Those are...

Mortgage Interest Rates - They are becoming a big topic of conversation in recent weeks. About a month ago, there were many reports stating that rates will come down to 4.5%.  And depending on how you look at it, we are just about there. This is all based on a FHA mortgage ..... (Conventional rates are about 1/2 pt worse and even more so, depending on your credit scores) 4.50% would cost any where from 1 3/4 pts to 2 3/4 pts, depending on your loan amount and the state that you live in. 5.00% would cost any where from zero points to 1 pt, again, depending on your loan amount and the state that you live in.   So what is the deal?  Yes, rates are very low. The MBS's (mortgage backed securities) are being bought by government funds, which have driven the rates lower. But in my honest opin...

MyPenderbrookHome.com Relevant Real Estate Information for the Penderbrook Community of Townhomes and Condos in Fairfax, VA INTRODUCTION I think its funny that a for sale by owner property came on the market here in Penderbrook this past week. And its definitly priced over 75k over what the market is asking for it. I guarantee that will be on the market for a couple years at that price. There was one more TH that came on the market this week. That is probably also just slightly to high for this market. In all there are 8 TH on the market about half are at fair prices. As of today (January 8, 2009 10 AM) there are 29 active homes in Penderbrook and 6 homes that are currently under contract and 2 homes that have sold in the last 30 days.

MyFairfaxRidgeCondo.com INTRODUCTION This was a little bit a movement this past week right before the new year. There are currently 5 condos under contract.  2 of these are short sales and 3 are bank owned.  Regular sales are very rare right now at Fairfax Ridge. Because most owners at Fairfax Ridge owe more than what the market is selling it for.    Buyers - There are are some great deals on short sales and bank owned properties here.  But you have to make sure you have a good agent who knows the area and what is going on with these banks and how to negotiate with them. Otherwise you can be hoping to get a house for a couple months instead of buying your next home.   Sellers- We are very aware that the market is causing you to hold on to your condo and possibly even losing a lot more m...
