Elliott R. Oliva answered:
Small local banks or credit unions are typically the best option when seeking any type of construction/renovation loan. If you end up looking for a finished home in Alexandria you may be able to get in with as little as 3.5% down with an FHA loan or 5% down with a Conventional loan. The loan limits for both programs are fairly high in the area so you can avoid having to seek a Jumbo loan and the higher rates they carry.

If you would like more details on getting pre-approved please feel free to contact me at your convenience. Thank you and good luck with the house hunting!

Anna M Brocco answered:
Your best source of information regarding crime is the local police department; why not visit/call and ask all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If you are not familiar with the area, drive through more than once and at different times of day, look at everything that is important to you and if the opportunity arises chat with the locals/neighbors. ... more

The Mulhern…, Real Estate Pro in Fairfax, VA
Sun Jul 5, 2009
The Mulhern Home Team answered:
Short sales are popping up everywhere - and those who qualify for them are finding success. Are you in need of selling or are you looking to buy one? If you are looking to sell, then I suggest using a CDPE designated agent who has a professional negotiator/team to get the deal through. The first step is you have to be qualified for a short sale. Simply being unhappy about the value of your home is not a valid case. If you have more questions, I have attached a website that has links and answers to most questions homeowners and buyers have on short sales.
