I would suggest you have a stucco inspection done. The maintenance is pretty low although stucco can develop cracks that would need professional repair. The maintenance is typically as simple as cleaning to maintain the great look and making sure all of the caulking is in good condition.... more
That is up to you. Most buy/sell clients start with a lender, and then have a trusted Realtor give them a list of sorts to get the home ready for sale. Usually that is about 4-6 months prior to when they would like to be moved, but we have done that process in as little as 60 days.
The market should be better then, but things a very fragile these days.
Our projections show there will be slightly higher rates then, but only minimuml sales price increases.

I'm not aware of any plans to expand Dulles Airport. There was talk a while ago of adding another runway. And there's the expansion (extension, actually) of Metro out in the direction of Dulles. And Dulles just recently switched over from those large people-movers to an underground transport system.
Here's a link to information on Dulles: http://www.metwashairports.com/dulles/dulles.htm And here's the Wikipedia entry: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Washington_Dulles_International_Airport... more
As a REALTOR I am not allowed to answer questions on safety or schools. However, I can give you objective resources so you can make those judgement yourself.
I believe the schools for those neighborhoods are: Elementary: BELLE VIEW Middle: SANDBURG High: WEST POTOMAC. (Please double check before you purchase based on this). You can go to the Fairfax County web site and look up school rates, and/or check greatschools . com (sorry - can't give actual links here for some reason).
Also, for crime stats, go to the Fairfax county website, click on police and then crime in my community - you can see the calls they get for the various parts of the county.
I hope this is helpful. If I can offer any more assistance, feel free to email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org... more
