Bought Winchester Homes in Poplar Run, Silver Spring, MD. Bought in 2014 and many problems still have not been repaired.

I agree with the person who bought in Brambleton, VA in December 2015 (see below). Poor workmanship and worse follow through on repairs. DO NOT buy a Winchester Homes. Period! ... more

Just a little more info about this question: The house in question is a short sale. The Seller accepted my offer and we had both signed the contract, but had not filled in the date of ratification yet. Just before it was ratified, the listing agent said they had another offer. My agent sent over an escalation clause saying that we would beat any other offers by a certain amount up to our cap. The listing agent would have to verify that it was a legitimate offer by giving us the details of the other offer (amount, agent's name, etc.). A few days later we received the signed contract back with all pages signed and initialed -- including the escalation clause, which was left blank -- and the ratification box filled in. It was official! And the price listed was still our initial offer. Now the listing agent wants my agent to change the price on the contract to $11,000 more (which is still lower than our cap). Can he do this?! (We understand that the bank still has to approve our offer, so it's not necessarily a done deal 'til then.) We feel the contract has been ratified at the price we agreed on initially and that he cannot change the price now, since he left the escalation clause blank. (I know... We should seek a real estate attorney's advice...) ... more

In 10 years the value is likely to be a lot lower anyways?

Also, do you mean real hardwood flooring or home despot staple down fake wood kit?

HGTV says a simple coat of paint adds $50,000! So lipstick the equity to the MOON yo! ... more

Each HOA will have different rules & restrictions. So to answer your question "Yes" but you'll have to do a little extra research for each property.

Google maps has this feature and it includes bus stops - I know it's a pain to toggle from site to site, but if Metro access is important to you, it's worth the extra clicks. If you want to be specific in your search, I can set you up with a radius search for each metro you're interested in and send you auto emails daily, weekly or whatever timeframe you prefer. Email me at with your criteria and I'll hook you up. ... more

What you will need to spend depends on the area that you select to live in.. There are lots of condos near the metro in Arlington, but for they can run in the $500,000 range. Reston is probably less expensive and there is a metro stop there. However, most condos and townhouses are at least a mile from the metro . There are lots of price variations, depending on the size and location . Alexandria also has townhouses near the metro, but the price also depends on the size and location. The best way to determine where you want to live is to come for a short visit to see what works best for you. ... more
