Been a long time since I fooled with meta tags and SEO stuff. I see one site uses:

and this was something I always tried to use.

While the other does not. Good meta tags do help the search engines. Do a little more SEO work and see if that helps. ... more

Good Morning new in town and welcome,

Having lived in McLean for many years, I can tell you that McLean is a great town, and I'm sure you'll love living there. There are plenty of quiet areas in McLean that do not have a lot of aircraft noise. Parts of McLean are indeed on the approach pahs to Reagan National Airport, but that is mostly by the Potomac River. There are some other areas that will incur some aircraft noise, but it shouldn't bad at all. McLean is really not on the approach or take off routes for Dulles airport, so that should not be a problem.

I suggest you connect with a Realtor who knows the area, and have them show you around, and help you get familiar with the area prior to making a committment on a home. You might want to interview two or three Realtors to see whom you're most comfortable with, and who has the experience to assist your family with your evaluation and purchase.

If I can answer any further questions for you, please feel free to write or call. Good luck with your search.

While that agent must deal with you honestly and fairly - they are not representing your best interests. You may very well be over-paying for the home; may not have the best options as far as home inspection items, etc.
Often - this type of transaction will be easy - UNLESS a problem arises. ANYTHING can happen in a Real Estate transaction.

The other problem is called procuring cause. Even if you get your own agent - the listing agent now has procuring cause. Even if you get your own agent - they will most likely not be eligible to receive a commission.

I would demand representation and demand the listing agent agrees to pay your agents commission.

Cindy Jones answered:
Is it the responsiblity of the upstairs owner or the condo association to fix the ceiling? If it is the upstairs owner then find out who their insurance company is and get them involved. If is the condo association and covered by their master policy the same thing applies. Your issue is since you are not the legal owner of the property you really don't have any standing and making repairs on a property you don't own is not a wise choice. Have your agent makes some calls to help you get some answers ASAP. A week and half isn't much time to get this done. ... more
