The TreeBrooke Recreation Association has a swimming pool for residents of Cherrywood Square, Evergreen Square, Flint Hill, Mayfair Manor, TreeBrooke Condominiums, The Vistas, Vistas of Vienna, and Vistas of Vienna East. This included 646 households. It is really better if real estate agents from out of the area do not try to answer questions that they does not know the answers to.

Yes, it is Oakton. I think that's where the Madison High School district starts.

I live a half mile from the miller heights neighborhood. There isnt a public pool right in that specific neighborhood, but there is the Oak Marr Rec Center about 2 miles away, which is owned by Fairfax County and has a large swimming pool as well as a golf course, but not tennis courts. ... more

You would have to get to one of the main roads like route 123, route 50, or Jermantown Road, in order to get a bus. The Vienna Metro station has a park and ride lot. The metro is usually very efficient in getting downtown and points east. ... more

The market is GREAT right now. Properties listed for sale are selling quickly, and equally properties listed to rent. So, have you found yourself a property to buy, or do you have any questions that we might be able to help you with?

Can you see if it can be expanded to 4 br perk or even 5 and what the cost would be? If so, perhaps you can message that into the price. Keep us posted.

The prices in Oakton have remained stable and in good shape. If your home is in good condition, updated appliances, finishes, mechanicals, etc and shows well then your home should sell fairly well and quickly. In Ashburn you will most likely get more home for your dollar (larger home).

Good luck!

Hi Jennifer!

Thanks for asking a great question. And thanks to all those who added their thoughts and feedback. Great job.

This was the most viewed question on Trulia Voices last week. I highlighted the thread and some great answers on our Trulia corporate blog.

Keep up the great work everyone.

Hello Jm,

There are different types of liens. Some are secured by the property. Some, like HELOCS, are personal loans that won't go away with foreclosure. My advice to you is to make an appointment with a foreclosure counselor at a HUD agency. Go to , click on "foreclosure", and then "talk to a counselor".
