Agreed with Ron.

Unfortunately - there is no way to TRULY know. We have a "Code of Ethics" that we are obligated to follow, however there is no way to ensure it's enforced 100% of time.

On a side note - I too am amazed at the lack of professionalism and follow-up by a lot of agents. Unfortunately - agents today are often only concerned with the offer that will get them paid - the others can go scratch and sometimes aren't even acknowledged or responded to at all.

I am sorry, but what property are you referring to? if you send the MLS number or address, we would be happy to get you the information you are looking for.

Hi There. Well being a local person in this neighborhood and knowing most of the homes around here I have to tell you that those are fun to look at, but you can get something just as nice also near the water, and without the noise from the Beltway and the Wilson Bridge ruining your outdoor senses. Also, most of the homes there don't have any kind of yards or outdoor space except a small 3' wide bacony and space behind your garage. But, it is a nice walking neighborhood and an easy walk along the river and to King St.

There are some nice places in Old Town closer to your price range that are similar size and also near or by the river. I'd be happy to let you know about them. And yes, Ford's Landing has HOA fees.

They do not list the price in 1983, when the place was re-built in 1998, the assessed value was $413k, now it is over $760k. If you want that info, you will have to go to the courthouse and pull up the tax records. If you buy something that needs fixing up and then re-do it, yes Old Town is a popular location that if done right you might be able to make a profit. I hope this helps.

I'm in Northern Virginia and would be glad to check. Just send me the address. (Even if there aren't interior pictures, I can go by with a digital camera, take some, and e-mail them to you.)
