Real Estate topics concerning Northern Virginia, D.C. and the nation.
I just read an short blurb in this mornings paper about the current economic situation of the country. Despite all of the recent bad news it gave several reasons why the economy is on the mend. The one point that got me thinking was that even though approximately half a million housing units are ...
Even though leads are coming in, some better than others, it appears that on the national level the housing market is in for still a rougher ride. I should say it is going to be a tough row to hoe for real estate agents, mortgage lenders, home inspectors, etc. Here is the article on the front pag...

We spend our busy lives working to build a career, put our kids through school, and hope for at least some form of co...
An interesting article in this morning's Washington Post regarding the wide discrepancy between the D.C. metro area and the rest of the nation. The article notes that if Washington were a financial or arts capital like New York or L.A. then the wealth in the area would be more widely acceptable b...
Here is another one from the Virginia Association of Realtors Newsletter. It seems that Fannie Mae is looking at sueing specifically, but not limited to, "Strategic mortgage defaulters." I have preached about this before, those who strategically default think that they will not pay any price for ...
