I can only seem to find the median. I would like all of the information about each zip code's AVERAGE sale price. It would be perfect if I could find them by year.

Watch out the guy named Ricard - EI Bey.
He is a fraud. He cannot get you any loan at all. What he does is cheat your money for appraisal which he will never done. Once if he got the money, he will not answer your phone or email anymore. You can search at Georgia License website, he does not have license at all. Just a fraud. ... more

Will wearing a suit vest and tie damage your image in ANY way?

Will wearing a NIKE tech muscle shirt damage your image in ANY way?

If you believe your image can not be damaged in any way, wear whatever you want.

Folks never ask a question to which they do not know the answer.

Hello Danbury,

How are you doing? Happy Sunday to you. I know this has been over three years now. But I was wondering if you ever brought a Condo in Georgetown DC? Please share your experience with us. It would help many home buyers who are either about to start the home buying process or currently looking for a home to buy. And hopefully it will help a Real Estate Professional like me to help deal with home buyers and sellers better. Thank you very much. Take care. ... more

HI Michael, I feel like there's more to this conversation that I've just walked into. You want an FHA approved home because? I was in a class recently in which the lender and attorney both commented on how expensive an FHA loan is now for the sake of 3.5% down payment. That the buyer should save another 1.5% and go with one of the many other loan products that are currently available. Your lender could do this cost analysis for you. Typically condos needed to be FHA approved prior to sale, other properties could be approved after contract but that's if the buyer were using FHA for the loan. Work with a good home inspector/contractor if you're worried about home condition. ... more

Hi Christine, Those of us who have lived and worked here for years just love it and think this area, compared with the rest of the country, can really give you a lot for your money. You've asked a subjective question which can be interpreted a couple of different ways. There's certainly still money to be made in real estate in the metro area or do you mean liveability at an affordable price? Get feedback from a lot of agents. There's plenty of statistics to plow through but if you're going to own it and live in it it's going to be an emotional decision as well. ... more

Typically once the bank takes back a property it is takes leaps and bounds to find the right party to speak to. In most cases the banks contract with property managers to help maintain/resale homes that have been been taken back on their books. An agent will have the time and resources to help you find out the specifics of the subject property. I'm sure there are plenty of them active on Trulia who are willing to help, myself included.
Good luck!

400 Mass Residential Condominiums is a well maintained property. The board is very active and ensures the integrity of the property is maintained and they work well with the property management to accomplish there goals. 400 Mass as onsite property management, engineers, and 24 Concierge service. I am the Sr. VP of the S.P. Jones Enterprises, LLC, which provides the concierge service to 400 Mass. 400 Mass has one of the best rooftops I've seen in the Washington, DC area, it is convenient to Safeway, shopping, and transportation. The rooftop boast a swimming pool, several well appointed sitting areas (some of which you can reserve for gatherings), stainless steel grills and more. Last summer the rooftop was reserved for a wedding party that went into the evening, such a breath taking event, decorations and scenery. Okay, I'm bias, but we do service other buildings in DC.

Hi Danbury,

I would say you might be able to find a condo scenario like you mentioined in the Foggy Bottom area, which is a short walk to Georgetown, and you could attract GW students.
If you would like the help of a Realtor I am happy to help. Let me know.

You can set up an automated search on my website.

MG Residential answered:
It does not appear that you have to sell your current home before buying a new one, you just have to use the new one as your primary residence in order to claim the $6500 tax credit.

Some people need to sell in order to qualify for (and afford) the mortgage on the new house, but if you can cover both mortgages, you are good to go.

The Federal Housing Tax Credit Website has a great Q&A page with lots of details on the credit.

Good luck!

Igor it is practice for the buyer to select there title company. Ask your agent to assist you with three company to choose from. Second the title company usually offer esrow service and that would be the better way to go. First time buyer should take avantage of all the programs offer at this time. I will recommend a home inspections even if the property is selling as is condition. It is wise to save as much funds as possible toward your purchase. In this market we are face with a lot of short sale dont run away from them, there is a lot of good deal you just have to wait it out. I hope this was helpful for you.
