The first task in writing this post was to look up whether "bullet holes" was 1 word or 2. Turns out it's 2 words. Learn something every day right? Or is it everyday? Anyhow, I went to a bank owned property in Falls Church today.It was disgusting. It was infested by cockroaches (we didn't see any live ones) and a bullet hole in the window (or a run in with a Kevlar beaked crow). What a gem!The good thing was this client was able to see it as an opportunity, instead of being freaked out. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't my thing, but this isn't about me, this is about the buyer. It got me thinking about how bank owned properties (and other dumps) affect neighborhood pricing.

Just minutes from the buzz of the interstate sits the mid-century Fairfax County neighborhood of Holmes Run Acres. Built on a 122 acre tract of land originally owned by a Washington investor by the name of Herman Schmidt the property was named Holmes Run Acres in 1945 and a set of restrictions were put in place for the development of the land. Since mid-century modern neighborhoods are rare in Fairfax County they have garnered a following of loyal homeowners over the years and Holmes Run Acres is no exception.The development of the property began in 1950 with what would turn out to be three different builders over close to a 10 year period. In the end 355 homes were built based on contemporary homes design including the California Ranch popular on the west coast and by Frank Lloyd Wrigh...

Harry Potter mania is officially here with the book being released across the country tonight at midnight!  Have you reserved your copy?Today's Washington Business Journal reports that Falls Church, Virginia leads the nation in pre-orders for "Harry Potter and the Deathly Harrows" according to Amazon.com. Fairfax, Virginia, and Vienna, Virginia, two close-in suburbs of Washington D.C. were also in the top 5.  The Journal reported that on a per capita basis, Washington D.C. led all 50 states!I guess traffic won't be so bad this weekend because everyone will be at the pool or on the couch reading Harry Potter. According to the article, Amazon dubbed Falls Church, "the Harry-est Town in America" and donated a $5,000 gift certificate to a Library Foundation in Falls Church. Hope you have a ...

It is interesting to see the current Falls  Church real estate sales statistics for Falls Church City Virginia homes for sale and compared to this time last year.  OVer all it looks very good for Falls Church City homes, and town homes in Falls Church and condos for sale in Falls Church Virignia.  Yes days on market have increased dramatically, but homes in Falls Church Virginia are selling perhaps because Falls Church has access to WMATA rail, and is just a shrot commute into DC and Arlington.
