Hi Kris - I work in Reston a LOT. I showed this property to some other clients - it was very big but in pretty rough shape and would require a rehab loan or a cash offer. FHA definitely would not allow a buyer to purchase a property in this condition. There's another one that recently came on the market in Reston that I'd like to show you if you're not working with an agent already. Please contact me if you'd like to learn more.

According to the agent notes in the MLS, the deadline for submitting offers has already passed and the bank is reviewing the offers that were received, so the listing should really be in "Temp Off" status versus "Active". That being said, it doesn't hurt to have your agent contact the listing agent to get see if you can add your offer to the others, since it is still listed as Active. It is a bank owned property being sold in As-Is condition, so it is critical that you get a look inside before writing an offer so you know what you're getting into. Finally, be sure to carefully read any bank addendums that you are asked to sign, as they are written in the banks favor and frequently transfer expenses that would normally be paid by the seller over to you as the buyer.

Hope that helps and good luck in your search!
