If you are relocating to the Northern Virginia area, or making a local move, you may be looking for a moving company. In this series on how to hire a good moving company we discuss what informed home sellers and buyers should know before they start looking for a moving service. Choices have consequences, for better or worse. Consumers not doing "due diligence" in making this decision are taking a risk with their possessions and their money. In this second episode of the series, we discuss how you can go about getting the information you need to locate and hire a good moving service. If you don't already have a good company, where do you start?   What about insurance and bonding?  How much coverage should you get?  Should you get full replacement cost?  What is the single most important...

Selling a home to anyone is a very weighted issue.  There a lot of things to consider. school, activities, leisure, worship, shopping, transportation and social.  When you have more than one person needing or relocating spouses is never an easy task especially if both spouses work, and need to be in different parts of town.  Lets take an example of a couple looking at a home in Oakton VA.  One spouse works in the McLean VA area and the other works in Chantilly VA.  The distance is approximatley 17 miles.  For this example we will use  Oakton VA as an area of interest to buy a home.  The point that sells the home or area is that Oakton VA more or less the epicenter. Oakton is equidistant to both McLean VA and Chantilly.  If you can demonstrate that each spouse will have a similar and rea...

Chantilly VA homes Sales for September 2009 were just release by MRIS our MLS system on October 10th, 2009 for single family detached Chantilly homes for salelocated in Loudoun County VA 20152.  There were 15 sales for the month of September 2009.  Below is a chart I generated from our MRIS to show you the price ranges of the homes sold.  The lower range had fewer sales because in single family homes available, and the higher price ranges had fewer sales because there were fewer buyers.

The most recent MRIS statistics were just released for or MLS on October 10Th, and I thought I would share Chantilly VA 20152 statistics for Loudoun County VA.  Yes sales are up, but prices are way downThe average sales price in September 2009 not including any sellers concessions is now at $423,935 that is down 16.58% from the same time frame in 2008 where the average sold price stood at $508,163.  The average list price for home has also dropped.  So the good news is that more homes are being sold, but the bad news is at much lower prices than last year.

Most persons never know what's involved buying a new home.  Negotiations of price, extras, who pays closing costs is one thing, but what about everything else?  What about the extras?  What is standard with a home and what is extra?  How much is the cost of the home if you had the home the way you want it? What is the final cost of all those extras? There's a lot to consider for sure.  There are cabinets, flooring, carpeting, plumbing fixtures, appliances, sinks, commodes, cable and phones, structural changes to enlarge a room or an eating area.  Does granite counter-tops come with the home or is it extra?  What granite will go best with the cabinets you choose and what is the final cost going to be?  Is that price negotiable? Sounds like a lot? It is, but we haven't even started yet!  ...

I've mentioned before that South Riding is an incredible place to live and call home, but for convenience in lifestyle it really cannot be beat.  Not only is South Riding literally just over the county line in Loudoun VA it have everything you need right inside the community.  There are many subdivisions where you can buy a nice home, but if you want a quart of milk, pack a lunch before you go out to get it.  Inside of South Riding there is a Giant Supermarket in South Riding, and a Blooms Supermarket.  Nearby on Tall Cedars Parkway a new Harris Teeters will be opening very shortly.  If you want gormet items Wegmans Dulles is just a short drive away (6.3 miles) on 45131 Columbia Pl Sterling, VA 20166 Photos are copyrighted © 2009 Jim Crawford
