Hello Annie,

It depends on so many things, such as condition, location, age, and the comparable sales in the neighborhood. YOU should really have a buyer's agent help you, that way you are sure to be getting the best deal and having a profesional take care of the whole transaction for you.

Good Luck

That would be near the toll road and Waxpool. Are you interested in a property there?

It is definitely a Sellers' market. We have much fewer homes than we have buyers. This drives market conditions in several ways. It helps to increase the prices of homes while at the same time leaving less room for negotiating seller concessions. ... more

You should be working with a buyer broker and asking them and not the Internet.

You have two options, if you're contract is predicated on your getting a mortgage then you may terminate the contract, you will be out your expenses to date. You can send a copy of the appraisal to the sellers lender who is ultimately the one in charge of the short sale and tell them they may either accept the appraised value and re-do your contract in which case you are prepared to close on schedule otherwise you'll terminate.

Good luck.

Even Manassas itself should be a good option.

You'd take a loss, but since it's mostly paid off anyway at least you wouldn't end up in massive amount of debt, which is where most underwater sellers seem to end up. If you use a HELOC to finance the downpayment, you're putting yourself at a large risk of debt if the townhouse won't rent to what you need it to, if something happens to the townhouse while you're renting it, or it not selling at the price you need it to down the road.

If you and your wife feel secure about your finance position in Delaware and can wait but still don't want to sell your old home at a loss, you might want to consider renting/subletting in Delaware, and making offers contingent on the old home selling at or above the price you need. Good luck!

James Downing answered:
The question is; do you want to be a landlord for the next several years? I do not see prices moving up much in VA for some time. There is way too much on the market and the many foreclosures are driving prices downward. If you can sell quickly; now may as good a time as any.
If you decide to go the renting way - think about how you will manage if you do not have a tenant or the time between tenants. Or the damage they may cause to your property.

Erin Barton answered:
If you are buying a home to live in for several years, then it is an excellent time to buy right now. In this market buyers have a large inventory to pick from, lower prices (esp. in the Loudon Co. area) and more negotiating power. Your negotiating power goes up even more if you have nothing to sell. The question now isn't whether to buy, its whether you can get financing. If you have good credit and a steady income, then chances are there is a mortgage for you. I am familiar with the Aldie area because my sister lives up there (in Stone Ridge). I'd be happy to answer any questions. I also know some great real estate agents that specialize in that area (my parents). Feel free to email me with any questions at Good luck! ... more
