NEW HOMES IN STAFFORD COUNTY VIRGINIA.  THERE ARE A FEW "MUST HAVES" FOR MANY BUYERS!!! STANDARD FEATURE or OPTION??  Agents selling new homes for many years will recall a time when the FIREPLACE was an option.  That's rare today.  Builders have included certain upgrades as part of the STANDARD FEATURES for years.   That pricing plan doesn't apply to all new home builders.  Experienced real estate agents who sell many new homes will learn the names and pricing practices of builders in their market area.  We learn which builders include: gourmet kitchen with an island,  granite counter tops, fireplace in the family room, soaking tub in the master bath.                                       Attractive features include the fireplace, TV outlet over fireplace and side windows.              ...

After evaluating jurisdictions through the 2010 Census Bureau Report, has ranked the richest counties in America.  The baseline for comparison was through median household income. Normally this kind of report wouldn't catch our attention. But 5 Northern Virginia counties earned recognition on a list of the wealthiest 15 places in America.  The Northern Virginia jurisdictions mentioned are as follows: Loudoun County: The wealthiest county in America.  With the average estate homes in the surrounding areas of Leesburg and Ashburn priced from $500K-$800K, and horse properties at every turn from Middleburg to Purcellville to Lovettsville priced between $1m-$3M we were not surprised Loudoun County earned the top spot on this list. The median household income of $119,540 support...

  As many of us know, a Home Owners Association (HOA), within a neighborhood or subdivision, is made up of property owners within that subdivision, and is established to govern relations between the owners, and administer the rules, bylaws, and covenants of the complex.  These guidelines or governing rules are normally covenants, conditions and restrictions (CC&Rs - not to be mistaken for the more popular CCR!) that restrict ownership rights.  For those looking to purchase a home, the HOA covenants can be both a relief and a concern.  One of the considerations we face when purchasing a home in a particular neighborhood is, what do the HOA covanents cover?  Are there restrictions on the number of people who can live in a home?  How about the size of color of the fence?  Pool hours?  Will...

  One of North Stafford's favorite hideaways is none other than the local library, specifically, the John Musante Porter Branch.  Built in 1992, with an architectural design unlike most other community libraries, the Porter branch is conveniently situated in the center of North Stafford's most populous area, and just down the street from three of its local schools, North Stafford High School, H.H. Poole Middle School, and Park Ridge Elementary.   Additionally, within a couple of miles are North Stafford's most popular home subdivisions: Park Ridge Hampton Oaks Augustine Amyclae Berkshire Austin Ridge Autumn Ridge Whitson's Ridge   For those that like to stop in just to relax and still catch up on their news the old fashion way, hard copy instead of the web, there's plenty of comfortable...

We have been tracking the market trends for home sales located in the South of Northern Virginia™ area, and as realtors®, we have noticed an important change. We are now in a buyers market. Home prices had escalated off the scale; there were 10 or more contract offers on one home. Buyers had escalation clauses in their offer, buyers looking at 30 plus homes or more.  There has been a turn around with the price of homes at a manageable listing price. Buyers can have their agents negotiate and get a 10,000 to 20,000 less on homes. Sad to say that many homes are now foreclosures are foreclosures, short sales and large inventory of existing homes. The inventory of foreclosure and existing homes is high. There are a lot of very nice renovations and remodeled homes. This means that folks are ...
