I totally want to buy a house with a basement (not a townhouse, shared walls suck.)

A huge problem for me is that all these people finish it -- so when I buy I will have to rip all their crap out and re-do it the way I want it.

And then these people think you're going to pay them extra for it? Uhhm NO.

Hi Marcia,

It has been a banner year for sales and Reston has been extremely lucrative for Sellers. Traditionally the selling market is best in the Spring however, the early Fall, (September and October) usually does pick up and can be a great time to sell because there is less inventory and people are back from vacations. One thing to consider is that interest rates have ticked up for the last several months, and while still low in comparison to prior years, it does make an impact on buyers especially in the lower price ranges. That is another reason why it may be a good time to sell; Buyers may be worried about rising interest rates.

Depending on the condition, updates, ( I now these condos are newer), the location in the condo community, the floor it's on, whether you have a garage, and sales in the past 3 months, we could determine if the value of your condo has increased to where it was when you purchased in 2006, so you could sell without losing money. .

I live in North Reston and my office is the Long and Foster in North Reston across from the Home Depot so I am available any time to stop by and provide additional information. Please feel free to contact me by cell or email. Hope this answers your question.

I agree with Ray as well. Comps will help, but the more you know about each home that has sold and is actively available will help you make an educated decision.

Ummm, you guys realize this question was asked over a year ago, right? I'm guessing he's probably chosen an agent by now ... :-)

I would like to thank Danny for the excellent answer.

HAP has been, and still is, a major disappointment in terms of solving this problem and quickly allowing people in your position to regain your footing.

Be leery of people who promote themselves as "short sale specialists" (which seems to be everybody these days). Your situation is one in which you get get to know your Realtor very well (or should anyway). The road to turning your sale into a fresh start rather than a disastrous finish has many twists and turns along the way.
Each lender is different, each case is different. Myriad issues can block the sale which seem to have nothing to do with common sense.

Work with an experienced person who understands your position, understands the issues Danny raises, and is flexible enough to seek soilutions outside of HAP.
