It sounds to me, from what you have written, that your house is in questionable condition. The BIG QUESTION is: exactly what does that mean? In the Leesburg zipcodes there is a real divide in property value depending on the exact location, neighborhood, even the schools in that district. Hey, sad but true, buyers want certain neighborhoods or schools for certain reasons (Sports Teams! can get a scholarship for the right kid) You need to be aware & honest about those realties. Adding Lease with Option to buy means you are a Landlord.... that option to buy may never be realized and you may get caught in a difficult situation when the non-buyer becomes a renter for good or shorter than you desired. So make your decision:are you a Seller or a Renter. If you do not have experience or an agent to handle all rental issues (which costs money) SELL your home and get on your way to your new future. There's too many possible hassles waiting in the dark to ruin your day lurking.... and probably costing more than you planned. ... more

Realtor.com has an agreement with most or all MLS systems to use their listings. Zillow and Trulia have some but not many and your agent, or their MLS, must make arrangements to send them listings. Zillow and Trulia recently made this much more difficult with them fighting over listhub.com. ... more

Moving from one continent to another? That is a gigantic task. It involves not only the packing your contents in moving boxes in order to be shipped over, but it also involves choosing which items to be shipped via sea, air or those that you can bring with you. There are a few logistics companies that could provide you with some framework to plan but at the end of the day, it is still up to you on how you would like to prioritize your items when it comes to shipping. ... more

I'd refer you to Costco, if you're looking for a good price and quality. If you're looking for the very best price, I'd recommend researching the wood blinds at Ikea. I hope that this helps!

Matt Shultz answered:
If you're looking for a rambler or another home with a main level BR and would like an easy commute to DC - your best bet is Lovettsville. This is a charming area in the northern section of Loudoun County, which borders the Potomac River and is just minutes from both the Brunswick and Point of Rocks, Maryland MARC commuter train station to DC.

Lovettsville gives you the best of both worlds - easy access to DC on the MARC train and the beautiful rolling hills that comprise horse and wine country. There are so many things to do near Lovettsville, with it's close proximity to Frederick, MD, Harpers Ferry, WV and Leesburg, VA. These are great destinations for unique dining experiences, shopping, outdoor recreation and wine tours.

If you'd like to learn more about the market in Loudoun County, feel free to reach out. I also have helpful information and a home search tool on my website at both MyLoudounAgent.com and MattShultzHomes.com.

In the Leesburg, Virginia 20175 and 20176 zip codes, 96 homes sold in the month of October. There are currently 538 homes on the market, up 28% from October of 2013. There were 142 new listings added to the market for October. The median sales price was $377,500 and the average days on the market is 47. An increase of 15% from one year ago. It's currently a sellers market in Leesburg but that is slowly trending towards a more balanced market, with a sharp increase in housing inventory. The absorption rate for Leesburg is at 5.5 months, which is the total amount of time it would take to sell all homes currently on the market.

I hope that this is both helpful and insightful. Feel free to contact me for any other specific questions about the market conditions in Leesburg.

Beth Seifart answered:
Each communities mentioned have their own "feel". Middleburg is "Hunt Country". You will find art, wines and more established homes many with acreage. Leesburg is "History". You walk through the Historic District and feel like you are back in time. Purcellville is a small town where "Everyone Knows Your Name"(not really but it is a quiet town). All three communities have their vineyards, homes with mountain views. You want a home with character any one of these communities have that. I live in the area and love it because we are only 1 hour or so from DC but it feels like we are so much further. For the most part the pace is slower but you still have all the conveniences you could want. Let me know if you need anything I would love to help you!

I hope this helps!

Brian Nguyen answered:
The best thing for you to do now is to speak with a lender directly to qualify for a loan. When you apply for a loan, lenders like myself will need to look at several different things if you are trying to prequalify for a loan. 1) Proof of income for each person that will be on the mortgage which can be demonstrated through: one month of pay stubs, previous year's W-2 forms and tax returns, official documentation to demonstrate other forms of income (alimony, child support, etc.), and two year's tax returns if self-employed (all schedules, all pages) 2) Credit Report which they will pull 3) Employment History or Business Tax Returns if you're Self Employed 4) Personal assets such as: Recent balances and statements for bank accounts, most recent account statement demonstrating market value of any investments (stocks, bonds or certificates of deposit), documentation showing interest in retirement funds, face amount and cash value of life insurance policies, value of significant pieces of personal property, debt information, the balances and account numbers of your current loans and debts, including car loans, credit card balances and any other loans you may have. These are just a few things you should have ready when you begin your buying process. Well I hope this helps, if you have any other questions or need a loan please contact me through the information on my profile page. I hope this helps and good luck! Good luck!

Vicky Chrisner answered:
The question is too subjective for anyone to answer for you, but I recommend you make your own decision by tapping into a number of resources. 1. As previously mentioned, the local police are a good resource. For the county, that's the Loudoun County Sherriffs office, but in Leesburg (where this property is) it would be the Leesburg Town Police. I'd open the dialog by asking if there is an active neighborhood watch in the area where the property is and then asking if you can get copies of the notes from those meetings. 2. Both police departments report to crimereports.com so I recommend checking out that site. 3. Also, when visiting, look at the area... are people hanging out in street corners, what do the cars look like, do you see overcrowding, trash in the street, etc? Talk to neighbors. You'd be surprised just how much looking at those things will tell you. 4. This property has HOA and I think they have a web site- check to see if you can find copies of recent meeting minutes and/or call the management office and request that information. I hope these suggestions are helpful. If you need more assistance please feel free to contact me directly ~ 703-669-3142 or MyAgentVicky@GMail.com ... more
