Don't buy an expensive house. You will regret it in the long run. Too many expenses with the house oil, heat, electric, lawn etc! Buy a condo. You can always rent them out

Not sure if you've already purchased your house, but wanted to note that overall, Arlington is an excellent school district, and if you're trying to pick the best school across the district......4-6 of the schools in the northern region of the county are virtually indistinguishable from each other from a quality standpoint. Not sure if diversity matters, but I should note that it can vary wildly between those northmost 4-6 schools. ... more

224-534-5012 Is the number I was contacted with today May 15, 2017 ..it must be a working number. I received a voicemail message from a Derrick Miller from Fleetwood Partners today asking for me to sign up. HA! I would never again sign up with some company that offers a 100% guarantee.. and wants money up front. There was some other company I did that with about 5 years ago.. the key question is to ask how many REO's have they had in your market area within the past 6 months. They usually are not ready to answer that... Ha, ha, ha. Good luck all. ... more

Foreigners can buy real estate and get a mortgage in the U.S. However, you will be required to have a large down payment (30%) + cash to pay for closing costs. You should also Google "FIRPTA" tax. This is a tax that foreigners need to pay when selling their property. ... more

I lend all across the country and I've never heard of an, "Attorney specific" loan program. Credit, income, location, down payment, will determine what is the best loan program for you. I would reach out to a well reviewed lender and have them start the process for you. Best of success! ... more

Emily Riley answered:
The Clarendon neighborhood has numerous apartment buildings that have 2-bedroom units and are pet friendly. Clarendon is on the orange and silver metro lines, has a Whole Foods, plenty of coffee shops, and lots of other shopping and restaurants. Just be aware that you pay for having all of this minutes from your door - most two bedroom units in this area are $3,000+ per month, with additional fees for pets and if you want to park a car. Neighborhoods around Clarendon (Virginia Square, Courthouse, Ballston) may be slightly less expensive, but you'll be 10-15 minutes walk from most restaurants and shopping, although there are metro stops in each of these neighborhoods. ... more
