MyFairfaxRidgeCondo.com Relevant Real Estate Information for the Fairfax Ridge Condo Community   INTRODUCTION We have had some more short sales sell here in the community.  My take on this is this:  until all the short sales in foreclosures are done in Fairfax Ridge, everyone elses condo price is going to be held down.  So if you are thinking about selling yours, then everyone should do it now and get it over with, so everyone elses condo can come back. It sounds kinda of harsh but its a reality. Why throw your money away anymore ? If you cant afford it, get out.  Now is the easiest time to get out.  The government is supporting you getting out.

  Tom: I was headed home to Greenbriar and cut through the Fairfax County courthouse complex just for grins, and  saw folks gathering in a huddle on the landing at the top of the courthouse steps. Is that where they have the foreclosure auctions? Steve: Yes Tom, believe it or not, no matter what the weather the sales will happen.... and it was nasty cold today. The attorney was dressed like a gold miner headed for the Klondike. In Virginia which is a deed of trust state, the attorney for the trustee shows up at the advertised time and says something to the affect of  "This is the trustees sale being held on behalf of trustee John Jones by the firm of Black and Decker. I have 5 properties on the list for today and they are as follows...and he reads them off. There was nothing for sale ne...
