Yes, this home is near two metro transit stops. The main stop being .7 miles away. The Cascades (Palisade Parkway Bus Shelter) on the corner of River Meadows Terrace and Palisades Pkwy is the main stop that will take you directly to the Orange Line station.

This is a great question for a well-seasoned and experienced lender. I'd recommend loan officer Glen Bralley with McLean Mortgage, as he can quickly answer your question and provide you with valuable resources on how to repair credit after a bankruptcy. He's amazing at what he does and truly goes the extra mile to help.

He's best reached at 703-898-5892
NMLS ID: 233063

Let Glenn know that Matt Shultz referred you!

That is common, the appraisal is the "appraisers opinion of value", if you have some more upgrades than the other homes, and and if the appraisals were done by different people, than there is a good chance they would have different values.

The builder also wants as much money as possible, so they can be difficult to deal with

Wholesale answered:
All the other agents have brought up some valid points. Everyone knows buying is always a better option than renting but it's also about what is right for you financially first. So I would sit down with a good loan officer to get pre-approved and get a better idea of what payment and financing options you have. Do you have money for a down payment? How much? Our in house mortgage officers currently have a Zero Money Down financing options for homes under $450k. This is a great option if you do not have much to put down but would limit you to mostly townhouses in the Herndon area depending on size. Finally after you have that all figured out finding a good realtor whom is familiar with the area is very important. They should know what is a not so good deal or what deals you shouldn't pass on.

Give me a call today and I can help you find the right Mortgage officer to start off with and hopefully get you in the best situation right now.

I'm in the same boat. My Ex. has resided in the home that has both our names on the Bank Loan. He asked for and obtained a Modification and Forged my signature on the documents. I contacted the bank and advised them of this and also contacted and reported this to the Police Dept. Both are doing an investigation. This is as I've been told to be Property Fraud as well as Forgery. Suggest you report your situation to both the bank and the Police Dept. ... more

Danilo Bogdanovic answered:
If you're referring to short-sales and foreclosures/bank-owned properties in that community, they're selling for below what a traditional resale would sell for. But that's the norm when it comes to short-sales and foreclosures. So technically, those short-sales and foreclosures are selling for market value based on the condition and type of transaction it is.

If you are unfamiliar with short-sales and foreclosures, I would be happy to explain the differences and nuances of each type of transaction to you in detail.

Dear Paul,

This must be an exciting time for you and your family.

You may be able to purchase a home in VA using a loan product depending on your employment status and income to debt ratios and if you have any US credit trade lines open.

Have you been paying taxes through your ITIN?

I would recommend you contact a reputable lender. I know several fabulous ones!

Feel free to contact me and I will share their name and numbers/emails with you.
