Townhouse for Sale in Centre Ridge Centreville VA 20121 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath   Dan: I am looking for a three level, 4+ bedroom, 3+ bath town house for sale in Centreville Virginia under $350k.

There are hundreds of town homes in Centreville...what's the deal?           Steve: Dan, there really is not much to choose from with 4 bedrooms, and 3 full baths.

Something is Beginning to Stink in Wells Fargo's Short Sale Department and I Don't Like It I'm a reasonable person.  I know when things aren't adding up.  And I will tell you right now, they are not adding up on my most recent Wells Fargo Short Sale. My Centreville, VA Short Sale listing ratified a Short Sale Contract on June 28th---just last month.  As I always do with all of my Wells Fargo Short Sales, I collected all of the needed paperwork and faxed over the 72 page tome to Wells Fargo's Short Sale Department.  Upon following up, I was told all pages were received but only one page was not legible.  I was asked to resend the Buyers' Lender Letter again and some additional financial info. The following week, after I had the financial information requested from the Seller, I sent the ...

For those looking for homes in Northern Virginia and elsewhere, the old addage for real estate has always been location, location, location.  There are certainly a lot of variables that go into "location" - the specific neighborhood, views, noise, schools, proximity to shopping / entertainment / healthcare / you name it.  But one location variable that has always been important here and will only grow in importance going forward is the commute. The Washington DC area infamously has some of the most gridlocked highways in the country.  And just as the regional planners recommend improvements to deal with the existing situation, the people and jobs keep on coming.  Of course, from a real estate perspective, that's a wonderful thing.  But from a commuting perspective, it may take an alread...

We had the privilege last week to work with some very cooperative sellers of a 3 level, fully finished townhouse in Centreville, VA.  In preparing their Centreville townhouse for sale in Sully Station.   I recommended they remove a kitchen border and paint the walls to freshen up and given some wow impact when you first walked in the home. We didn't have much time so they initially passed on that suggestion. The border had lemons on them and were on white walls. We staged the house with the border and no new paint, but after staging the entire house the owners were motivated to go the extra mile and modernize the kitchen.  Even though we only had one week between when we took the listing and put it on the market, the sellers agreed that it was needed and took down the wallpaper and pain...
