I've heard this question more in the past few months and felt like it was time to get the word out that YES you can get a home inspection on an as-is sale. As-Is simply means that the seller is not going to make any repairs to the property. SHOULD I get a home inspection on an as-is sale?YES. Why you may ask? Just because the seller won't make any repairs doesn't mean you don't want a professional to give the house a physical. If there is a major problem found for example a cracked foundation you can withdraw your offer and your earnest money deposit will still be protected. Spending a few hundred dollars is well worth it if it saves you thousands in the long run. Even if just minor repairs are found (updating outlets to GFCI protection, caulking around a bathtub) the home inspection re...

Stratford Place is one of the villages of Kingstowne where you'll find condominium homes at a good price in a great neighborhood. The three-story garden-style condominiums are served by stairways. (No elevators keeps the condo fees lower.) The stairways are under roof but open to the elements. The hallways are nicely carpeted. The buildings have a modernized colonial-style architecture with staggered roof-lines and dormers. The mix of brick and siding give the community a suburban welcome-home feel. Though difficulty to see in these pictures, the entrances are under large archways housing the open stairways. There is no shortage of parking. With access to both reserved and visitor parking residents shouldn't have any problems here. All units have nice large balconies with views to the ...

           These are pictures of the new "green" America.  Just wait until those trees grow in the non-existent front yard.  Of course, the only things growing in the rear are trash cans and air conditioners.  Owners had better hope they and their across-the-driveway neighbor don't back out simultaneously. Forget walking the dog - where do your kids play or ride a bike?  These pictures are from a large subdivision in Northern Virginia.  The name is of no matter - there are others just like it throughout Fairfax County, Prince William County, Loudoun County and all of Northern Virginia.  See FIELD OF DREAMS posted by Karen Kruschka, my wife and partner. I don't blame the developer - I blame the government officials that approve projects like this.  The only "green" they are interested in...

   First Time Buyers are one of the primary reasons I developed the booklet at the right.  It helps me review the home buying process with them during our first meeting, but that is not why I love 'em so much.The primary reason is the gleam in their eyes when they find the home they want to purchase.  After 31 years in this business nothing has ever pleased me more than that moment - I know I've helped them take the first step toward fulfillment of the "American Dream"As with all my purchasers, at our initial vmeeting we discuss requirements, commuting, schools, and all the other elements of a home search.  If they are new to the area we spend a day of orientation for me as well as them - area for them and their reaction to homes for me.I devote a substantial amount of my time honing my...

 Real estate teams began to appear in Fairfax County in the late 1990's. My real estate team was formed in 1976 when my husband and I were licensed to sell real estate.We were interviewed by several firms who were unwilling to have us join their organization, because "real estate agents are individualists who work most effectively by themselves".  Also, they felt there would be "too much emotional pressure on a married couple's relationship".  Eventually, we joined a firm that was willing to "take a chance" and accept us. Thus began a business partnership that was as successful as our marital partnership.  THE TWO PARTNERSHIPS ACTUALLY COMPLEMENT EACH OTHER.Recognizing the dynamic nature of the industry we committed to continue increasing our knowledge on an organized basis.  Accordingl...
