I am not sure quite what you mean by asking Sellers Concessions? They can be allowed depending on your loan type, and they are found in contracts today. If you provide more details, we can answer better.

Do you know how to "lower it"? Email them to me and I will do the trick and email them back to you.
Maybe your internet is not that good.

Email them and I will fix them to a web view or do you have MS office?
I have picture manager that "fix" the pictures in no time and no knowledge required.

Check with or, as you suspected, ask a CPA. I think if you have lived in the home 2 out of any of the last 5 years you should be O.K., but verify this with an accountant. ... more

David; it would be difficult to say without seeing the home itself and the trends nearby. You don't want to spend any money if someone is likely to come along and buy the home for the land. Nor do you want to do, say, a kitchen renovation/update if a buyer will likely blow out some walls to make the kitchen larger or do a full scale addition. Chances are pretty good that your best bet will be a clean up, fresh coat of paint, and a great price. Let the home be a blank canvas for the next owner. But, again, it is tough to say for sure without actually having a look. ... more

22207 has been a popular zip code in Arlington for some time and will likely continue to be. Lots of reasons for this. Some are; easy commutes to Mclean, DC, shopping, or the's a fairly large geography so different areas offer different pluses (what constitutes a plus, depends on your perspective). There are alot of new (and older) expensive homes there. As you probably know it's divided up into neighborhoods, (Country Club Hills, Country Club Manors, Berkshire Oakwood etc.) and each has it's own personality. You have probably noticed that the more expensive homes are staying on the market much longer than the well priced smaller homes in the $500,000-$900,000 range. There are fewer of these and they tend to go more quickly because people are anxious to get into the neighborhood at a lower price. There are currently quite a few $1M plus homes for sale in this neighborhood. If you are looking t buy a home there, now is a good time to negotiate a good deal. If you've got a smaller less expensive home, it's a great time to sell. If you are selling a pricier home, you'll have to check the comps carefully before pricing even with new people coming in for the new administration. ... more
