Trulia has a technical problem that they are not fixing with inaccurate listings. My house is inaccurately listed (short a bedroom and a bathroom). Despite submitting edits to correct the false and misleading information, none of the edits have been accepted, and the listing is still inaccurate. ... more

Keep the 4th bedroom. Makes your property unique and adds something that others don't have but still value

I agree with Delaine that your agent should be helping you with this, but remember the old saying "A bird in the hand is worth 2 in the bush". Assuming the rest of the offer is strong and likely to go to settlement, you have to ask yourself if you are willing to risk getting to settlemnt for the roughly 2% difference.

As for concessions, unless you get a bidding war in the first week on the market, they are a pretty standard in my experience in 22206.

Best of luck!

.JPGs (pronounced J-Pegs) are a relatively small sized picture. If the pictures you want to upload aren't .jpegs (will look like "picture.jpg"), then right click on them and save them as .jpgs.......this should reduce their size enough to upload them.

Best of luck,

A Starbucks and a Homemade Pizza are some of the newer additions to the Lee Heights shopping center, so while I wouldn't say 22207 is red hot, it may be slightly warmer than it was five years ago.

Thirsty Bernie's is also a welcome addition vis a vis the kind of eateries you can walk to in Northern Arlington.

I work out in Dulles, and several of my co-workers live in this area because it makes the reverse commute much easier than the Wilson corridor or further south.

I hate to sound like a party pooper, but are you sure you'll have capital gains? most people do not when they sell in such a short time frame, in fact, their are lucky if they can get out and break even. It may be helpful (depending on how unique your home is) to run a market snapshot and see what current sales are - you can do that from my home page (follow link below). In the middle of the screen you'll see a small rectangle (not at the top of the page) that will have a small form to fill out. It says Market Snapshot. It's an automated report, and takes 15 mins or so to reach your email inbox.

As for a CPA, call Robert Tilker in Vienna. He is my dad's CPA. If you can't find a listing for him, email me ( and I will get the # from my dad. He's worked with my dad for years and years.

Good luck.

Monika Kaiser answered:
Although we all love statistics and regard them as evidence, they should be taken with a grain of salt. Especially, if they cover a short period of time. So for instance the average price in 22207 showed a minus of 9.37 % in May and 17,92 % in February of 2009. While you should look at the numbers, there are other indicators of what makes a stable neighborhood. And above all remember that real estate is no short term investment.
