East Falls Church

Today, you can find 8 properties for rent as close as 0.2 miles to the metro. Their price range is between $1,650/mo for a 2 bedoom condo to $5,200/mo for a 4 bedroom 3 full bath detached house.
As for sales, there are 8: the cheapest is $390k for a 1 bedroom condo in Westlee and the most expensive is $1,180,000 in Madison Manor - a detached house with 5 bedrooms 4 1/2 baths. There are only 2 townhouses at walking distance to metro that are offered for sale today: $750 and $860 respectively. The owner can do financing on the second house. It is pretty rare these days. You will probably need to get an attorney or a very experienced realtor to walk you through the whole process. Hurry! Need help? Call or email me. Good luck!

Economy is Recovering

Housing market has been showing some interesting signs lately - multiple offers in the first couple of days; offered price increasingly higher than the listing price; fewer contracts falling apart before settlement, etc... It is no surprise that Forbes publishes an article suggesting that US recession is over.
It is definitely the right time to buy: still a large inventory of houses on the market, reasonable prices and a low interest rate. And my strong belief is that the best investment is into real estate located at a walking distance to a metro station. Need to look at houses? Call me. But.... please get a preapproval letter first.:)
