We would like to buy a SF fixer-upper within the boundaries of a very good, but not crazy-expensive,

Asked by Laura Liseno, Gaithersburg, MD Tue Apr 8, 2008

elementary school - Diamond ES, Darnestown ES, Farmland ES, Travilah ES. Would also take a townhome w/ yard and garage. For, um, $375 - $400K. I know we're reaching, but we've gotta gotta be in a good school. We're coming from Dallas, where our home-buying dollar went a l-o-t farther!

How did your home search go? There are numerous opportunites out there in your price range. If you haven't purchased yet, I suggest that you look for a home in the $425 range and negotiate down. The buyer's are in control and have the advantage of all the hype.

It is an excellent time to buy and there are plenty of lovely townhomes to choose from in the 375K-400K range with good schools. As far as fixer-upper homes there is plenty to pick from that are in need of repair-provided you have the monies and time to fix them up.

You chose a very good time to buy a home in the DC Metro area. I searched for some properties. I found about 18 properties. I'm not sure exactly what you are looking for so I'm including all of them. Please call me if you have any questions or want to see any of these propertites.
