She is the best real estate agent I have ever worked with and I would never consider another because she follows through and gets results.Patty CaseMarcie Flournoy is a hard working, dedicated agent who truly looks-out for her clients. She helped us find the home that was just right for us after looking at MANY short-sales, foreclosures and newly built homes. During each and every offer, Marcie stayed on-top of the process and often did the work of both agents in order to keep the process moving. It was great having her in our corner. I most definitely recommend Marcie Flournoy to all of my friends and would not hesitate to have her as my agent again!Trent Janda

Because an AS-IS sale is generally sold for less than full market value due to needed repairs. The buyer will want to perform an informational only home inspection to assess issues. This give the buyer the option to proceed with the contract or void. If void is chosen, a copy of the home inspection report will be delivered to the seller which gives the seller and the listing agent knowledge. If the current contract does not make settlement, the seller must disclose all known defects to any future buyer. There is lies the risk.Answered: Jul 10, 2017In answer to: Can I buy a house?Rimal, Did you ever purchase a home?Answered: Jul 10, 2017Brittany, Good morning. When purchasing any home it is best to have your financing in place. This step will determine your buying power so that you aren't looking at properties outside of your price range. It also depends upon the type of foreclosure.....HUD are different than private banks. Each will have their won requirements. Currently there are 97 active foreclosures in the Northern Virginia area....eight are in Alexandria. If you would like further assistance, feel free to contact me directly.Answered: May 9, 2017In answer to: Can I buy a house?Unless you are paying cash, you will need financing. I always suggest that my buyers find a lender first. Since you have a Visa you will need to find a lender who can work with you on this. Depending upon where in Northern Virginia you wish to live, you can probably find a nice townhouse within your budget. Please let me know if you need assistance finding a lender. Marcie Flournoy, Associate BrokerAnswered: Dec 8, 2016Talk to the listing broker. If you had not submitted an application on the subject property, it is possible the landlord instructed the listing broker to change the price.Answered: Aug 9, 2016Syed, I work with a number of real estate investors and I have seen a number of homeowners convert their primary residence into a rental home and purchase another primary residence. Providing you have equity in your primary residence and you can afford a second mortgage on a new home, this works well. However, you really need to research this thoroughly. Talk to a mortgage banker/lender and work with your CPA and CFP (Certified Financial Planner). I am an investor myself and a Associate Broker/CIAS-Certified Investor Agent Specialist. Real Estate is a great way to diversify your investment portfolio. Depending upon the real estate market your choose to invest, renting a property for a number of years is a great way to build equity as your tenant is making your mortgage payment (PITI+HOA). Hope that helps.Answered: Apr 25, 2016In answer to: looking for a house to rent for me and my wife.Looks like you are looking for a rental. We can help you with that. We have several rentals on the market and represent a number of landlords. Please feel free to contact me directly.Answered: Jul 11, 2015The challenge these days is finding a foreclosure. There aren't as many as there once was. Generally the best foreclosures are the Fannie Mae foreclosures. They are usually updated with carpet, paint, appliances and repaired. However, with there being fewer it is back to the supply and demand theory.Answered: Nov 15, 2014Hello Syed, All good advice. However, getting a Realtor involved up front experienced in working with investors and familiar with you market would be the best advice. Make sure you identify your overall objective for investing in real estate.....to generate income for retirement, college, build equity, etc. This could have an impact on what asset you purchase. Fall is usually the best time for investors. Most primary resident buyers are celebrating the holidays and aren't looking/buying while sellers are still putting properties on the market. This gives investors time to prepare a new property for the Spring rental market.Answered: May 5, 2013Skip, Most lenders want to confirm that the potential homebuyer is financially stable enough not for default on a mortgage. Payment history, debt to income ratio, credit score, fund reserves, stable job history, and a number of other factors come into play in making that determination.Answered: Apr 28, 2013Vanessa, The property address was not displayed.

We list and manage rental properties....we offer one-stop shopping.Answered: Apr 10, 2013Lana, I am an experienced Broker in the Northern Virginia market and work with a number of investors who rent out their properties. I am with Keller Williams and have over ten years experience. Please contact me directlyAnswered: Apr 10, 2013Lana, The customary rental listing fee is one month rent. I recommend 30% instead of customary 25% of one month rent to the leasing agent which will get the property rented quicker. The application processing fee is paid by the tenant. Included in the one month rent fee is the listing of the property in MLS, advertising/marketing on various web sites, lockbox, signage, showings, follow up with agents, follow up with leads, supply tenant with applications, processing of the tenant application, collection of processing fees, earnest deposit and first month rent from tenant, lease preparation/review/signing by all parties, property turnover....just for starters. Please feel free to contact me directly. We would love to rent your property for you.Answered: Feb 3, 2013I am familiar with Section 8. I do have a rental Or two that may consider vouchers......one in Dale City for $1450 and one in Oakton for $1500. Would these work for you?Answered: Dec 10, 2012I will be moving back home to Houston and Katy,TX is where my sister lives. I would be more than happy to help you find a really good TX agent to help with your rental. I will be getting my TX RE license, but may not have it in enough time to "plan" for the rental. Let meknow if I may be of assistance.Answered: Dec 10, 2012Shantier, This is a rental being offered at $3595 a month. This property is not for sale. Unfortunately each website may inteprete the listing information in different ways. However,I don't show it as ever having been a foreclosure offered for sale. You are welcome to contact me for foreclosures of interest.Answered: Nov 29, 2012I see that you are in a non-HOA environment. To answer the questions I would need to know what restrictive covenants you have violated.Answered: Nov 29, 2012Tiffany, Your neighbors may be ok with your changes, but if you live in an HOA or condo association, the association may not approve. It's best to get changes approved by your HOA/Condo Association.That will make it easier to sell you property whenthe time comes. Otherwise it will come up as a violation and you will either have to remedy the situation or it will be left to your buyer to handle and they may not want to. It could wreck your sale and you don't want that.Answered: Nov 27, 2012Sheren, to answer your questions would depend upon a number of factors. The best first step is to speak with a lender for guidance. Depending upon your situation, almost anythng is possible. There are a number of lenders available that can help you.Answered: Oct 8, 2012Patience is a very nice property and it has been on the market 47 days. Looks like it was probably over priced. Have you checked with a lender to see if they can find you financing or help you repair your credit. Sometimes that's all it takes. The sellers could possibly take a second on the property depending upon their situation and the amount of equity they have in the property. I would try the lender route first. If you need lender recommendations, please let me know.Answered: Aug 1, 2012That depends on the status of the offer/contract or if you are still in a negotiation with them. It also depend upon whether this is a foreclosure or a short sale. This sounds more like a short sale than a foreclosure. Usually bank foreclosures don't take that long to ratify a contract. If this is a short sale, then yes, the third party approving bank(s) can raise the price. You need to understand there may be more than one bank involved, one or all of the lenders may be investors, there may be mortgage insurance on the loan....more than just one entity making the price decision.Answered: Aug 1, 2012Kimberly, I am formailiar with Section 8, but unfortunately this property already has an application registered on it. I must say your's was the most impressive presentation of the program I have ever seen by anyone. I have passed your info on to my office. I am certain some one will be calling you.Answered: Jul 23, 2012In answer to: I want to list my house on here.. how can i do that?Is your property for sale or for rent? In either case, the easiest way to handle this is to work with a Realtor. We have access to far more web sites that will get your property the highest level of exposure. I work with landlords, tenants, buyers and sellers across all of Northern Virginia. It would be my pleasure assist you with this.Answered: Apr 25, 2012In answer to: I want to list my house on here.. how can i do that?The best way to feature your home for sale is by listing your home with a Realtor. Your property will be advertised on countless web sites automatically. 80% of FSBO's eventually end up listing with a Realtor. Safe time....do it now.Answered: Feb 2, 2012Eugene, the prices in Prince William are already picking up. Overall there is an increase in prices. At the end of January there was only 2.4 months of inventory in Woodbridge alone and 1.5 months of rental inventory. That isn't much. And most properties are selling quickly. The overall national increase in prices is 4-5% annually. You factor in all this and you have a positive market.Answered: Jan 10, 2012I have the perfect lender for you. She is with a regional bank and will handle your situation personally. She has worked with a number of my clients without perfect credit. Please call Charlene Finnegan with M&T Bank. Her number is 571-921-1259. Tell her Marcie gave you her name.Answered: Nov 27, 2011Maryi, As has been stated below, thank you for your devoted service to our country. I am sure it hasn't gone unnoticed. And it is unfortunate that many people don't have the best credit. However, it has been my experience that being honest about it up front in the application process is the best policy. Provide an explanation of why your credit isn't the best, will go a long way. The fact that you have good rental history will be a plus. During the application process credit, rental history and employment history will be verified. My sugggestion would be to work with a Realtor to help you find a good fit with a rental and landlord.Answered: Nov 23, 2011In answer to: How much is the condo fee? ThanksYuko, This property is a short sale that is already under contract. However, as per your request. here are the monthly HOA/Condo fees HOA Fee: $49.00 / Monthly C/C Fee: $381.00 / Monthly. Contract me directly for access to live MLS data that is constantly maintained.Answered: Nov 22, 2011In answer to: How do you know when a listing is available?Kendall, The best way is to work with a Realtor. We are going to be the best source for active listings. We also have access to far more information about a property than the general public. Most public web sites take days for listings to appear and are generally never updated when a property is sold or goes under contract. I can set you up with a Listingbook account that has direct access to our local MLS and you always have the most current information. Listingbook also allows you to search MLS just like a Realtor. If you would be interested, please let me know. I would be glad to help you.Answered: Nov 1, 2011Christopher, I show that the listing for 14847 Cloverdale has expired. It was a short sale that was on the market for 191 days as of 10/01/11. It has probably gone to foreclosure. If you contact me directly, I would be delighted to help you find a similar property.Answered: Oct 20, 2011Absolutely! Depending upon the property you choose to purchase, the answer is yes. Regular Sale properties can close in as little as two weeks. This is totally dependent upon the lender, title company and Realtor working as a team. Short sales will always take longer to get to settlement and foreclosure can be a bit more complicated. Regular Sales normally take 30-45 days from contract ratification to close. Finding and having an offer accepted can take some time. I normally tell buyers to back up 45 days from when they want to move and factor in another 30-60 days just to find the home they want to buy. So if you are looking at 60 days to move, you need to get started right away. I have the resources and the experience to get you closed. Don't hesitate to contact me when you want to get started.Answered: Oct 18, 2011Absolutely I can help you. However, I need additional information in order to find you a rental. Please contact me directly and I will sent you up with direct access to MLS so youc an search listings just like a Realtor.

You will have access to listings that are a direct feed from our MLS. Hope to hear from you soon.Answered: Oct 12, 2011Tom, by now you have already determined Olley is no longer available.
