You can contact the listing agent who will be able to help you learn more about that specific property (and probably will know a lot about similar properties in the area). To find an agent, just click on the yellow button on the property's Trulia listing and you will be able to start a dialogue.

Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can help with anything else. I am happy to be a resource for you. Good luck with the search!

The usual security deposit for a rental townhome or any kind of rental home other than an apartment is one month's rent. There are additional security deposits for pets. Our peak rental period starts in April and is quite active until November. So if you are interested in finding a rental, you should start looking in early March. If you have other questions regarding rentals or need assistance in finding a rental next year, I'd be happy to help. Please contact me through my email or cell phone. Thank you for your question.

It doesn't hurt to make a connection with a real estate agent in the area early in the process. You can start your market research now by being set up in an automatic search so that you can see what prices are for the type of home you desire. You should get serious in your search approximately two months prior. Many landlords and agents submit their listings about 60 days prior to vacancy.

Happy House Hunting & welcome to No. VA.,

Don Tepper answered:
It depends on your budget as well as your preferences.

At the bottom is Pergo or similar. It looks nice and comes in different styles. But it can be scratched or damaged pretty easily.

Next up is vinyl--either square, sheets, or strips. My wife recently redid a couple of rooms (living room, family room) in our house with vinyl strips that look like wood. Better yet, they're textured, so they feel lke wood, too.

You might consider tile, at least in some areas.

Then there's wood--either pre-finished or real. (Sorry, pre-finished is "real" but not in the same way that individual planks of wood, put down, stained, and coated are.)

One thing to keep in mind, though. Lots of building (even condos, for instance) require that something like 75% or 80% of the floor area have carpets or rugs on them. That's for sound control. That remaining 20% generally is taken up with the kitchen, bathroom, and laundry room. So even if you put down a hard surface--any of those described above--you may have to cover that with lots of area rugs.

Hope that helps.

Hi Kim!

I understand where you're coming from... I spent the day building a latice fortress around my heat pumps because my little guy used them as a stepping stone to jump the fence, scaring me half to death when I came home and he wasn't there...

There are certain areas of Virginia Beach in which large fenced lots are common. There are plenty of great agents on this site, but I encourage you to check out my profile and give me a ring if you'd like my help. I'd be honored to have the opportunity to earn your business!

Take Care,

Unfortunately your question is a common one we realtors hear. The pricing in Williamsburg and everywhere is a result of location, property values, supply and demand, desirability etc. I've done some work with housing partnerships and maybe they can offer you some ideas and options. Feel free to call me during the day at 757-810-3642 ... more

Sherry Spinelli answered:
Hi Angela,

Public transportation offers many options. Metrobus schedules are available online and there are many routes to Washington, D.C., Tysons, Falls Church and locations west along with close in neighboring areas. The Metrorail is located in Vienna, just right "down the street" from Oakton on Chain Bridge Road, which becomes Maple Avenue in Vienna, then a right turn on Nutley Avenue takes you to the Metro station. The Silver Line is coming to Reston later this year. There are also many special stops for buses to the Pentagon and other key Washington locations.

I hope you're able to find just what you need and if you're new to the area, Welcome!

Best regards, Sherry
