Marcie Flournoy answered:
This property has been on the market for almost 700 days. That is a very long time in our market. Obviously there are issues.

For any lot/build project you will need a lot loan and a construction to perm loan.

You will also need perc test for septic and utilities brought to the lot. County approval for a build, well and septic system.

This financing is the most important piece of any build project. I will be more than happy to help you find a lender to assist. Please contact me for further assistance.

Our real estate market is very fast. This property is no longer available. For an April/May move you need to start looking in Jan/Feb. I can set you up with auto listings so that you can become familiar with the market when the time comes. Please send me your email address and I will start sending you listings. ... more

As long as the landlord allows pets, you can always put down a double security deposit for a larger pet. Please contact me for further assistance.

Sitara,

I see you have received directions below. If I may offer you one other direction..."It costs you nothing to use a real estate professional to represent you in the purchase of a new home...however..it can cost you plenty if you do not"...

Many purchaser do not realize this. If you need representation feel free to contact me and learn of the benefits of working with an ABR (Accredited Buyer Representative). Have a great day!!

Kind Regards,

Temosier,

Although MANY properties will say they don't accept pets..MOST actually will. All you have to do is think outside the box...maybe pretend you are the owner.. Ok..you have 2 small dogs..what if you gave 3 months security deposit instead of 1? In other words..if you trust your pets will do no damage..then put your money on the line to prove how you feel to the owner. I have a few rental properties and if you approached me this way..I would accept.

Good luck!

Kind Regards,

Joseph Gheitanchi answered:
This home is already under contract. Unfortunately for buyers, the real estate market in Northern Virginia has really gotten tight....there isn't much inventory and often times there are multiple offers on homes.

I do have access to homes that are not listed on the open market. This could give you a great advantage in your home search. If you would like to find out more about this, give me a call at 703-327-2442 or email at josephg@erols.com

Jennifer Rivera answered:
This property is under contract with a kick out, which means that there is a contgency with the offer to purchase, for example, the buyer must sell his house in order to purchase this home. It is also a short sale, which means the bank must approve the offered price. I would be happy to contact the listing agent to see if they would be willing to accept a back up offer. If you are not already working with another agent, I can send you a list of all available properties that meet your criteria; and if you would like to see any of them, I would be happy to show you. Please contact me at your earliest convience; jennifer@move4freerealty.com or 571-292-5377 x 112. Also, ask about my company's Move 4 Free program. ... more

Susan Maher answered:
The info you've received so far is correct. I'll add a few more facts...
This land does not have sewer available so any construction would have to be on septic. However, the owner says that he does not have a perc test to determine if the property is buildable, and if so how many bedrooms are possible. There are lots in Fairfax County that are classified as "unbuildable" on the tax record, that end up having houses built on them. This area, which is not far from the Potomac river, has some tricky soil types so it is entriely possible that it will not perc. It sounds like the owner either doesn't want to spend the money to find out, or doesn't want to find out it is truly un-buildable. ... more

Just like regular mortgage lending, guidelines have changed a lot on construction lending. You're probably going to need about 25% of the cost of the project.
