When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local authorities with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.

David Kyle answered:
There are pros and cons to all 3 of your options. If you stay put for a year you can resell it and at least get a return for what you paid for your property with making probably a few updates to appliances, paint , etc. if you rent it and you can afford to and buy the property you are looking for then you can sell it when you can get the most for your return. Staying put in your new townhome will not change your positon on you not wanting to be there. So i suggest renting it out and buying the property you want in Springfield or Sell it when you can and buy the property of your desire. ... more

The Dudley Real Estate Group answered:
Hi Dave.

Shristhi and I are working with an investor now. He lives in NoVA, but he's buying, or wants to buy places in DC. We're currently looking at properties UNDER $100,000 (most are around $60,000)...

Where I'm going with this - clearly it's not about what you can buy for cheap. It's about what you can do WITH it.
Shristhi and I look at each property and see what income you'll get from it, what loss you'll take from it, what your expenses are, taxes and where you'll income, or loss will take you.

We'd love to talk to you more if you haven't taken that step towards buying properties.
Feel free to contact us. We'll be waiting and would love to help you with any and all of your real estate needs.

Best,

Chris

Erik Weisskopf,ABR,CDPE, answered:
VAbuyer,

Vicky answers the question very well. Bottom line with a short sale...it's not over until closing is complete! These things are a mess and anyone telling you differently is mistaken. Sure, many of them go to closing and some are smooth as silk..Others..a complete debacle. Lender coming back asking for more money..sometimes behind the scenes the negotiator blows the deal because the fees they charge (sometimes thousands of dollars) are not acceptable to the bank...etc. etc.

It is still somewhat of a new process and each bank/negotiator/agent handles it differently so no two deals are the same. I always leave my clients an out and tell them to expect nothing on the short sales..this way we continue to look, options are left open and if the short sale works..it's a bonus.

Good luck to you!

Kind Regards,

Erik J. Weisskopf, ABR,CDPE,CRS,GRI

Okay Renter:

What's holding you back? Why don't you begin a conversation? I'm quite sure if you're qualified, you shall be the first in line. Please act as if you're unaware of his/her financial situation. Some like to keep their situations private.

Good Luck
