Another Bristow, Virginia Short Sale---SOLD!
Chris Ann Cleland, Associate Broker, Northern VA (Long & Foster REALTORS®, Manassas, VA)

There is nothing that pleases a Bristow Short Sale Agent more than being able to tell the world about another successful settlement of a Bristow Short Sale.  Just two days left in the year 2010 and this Bristow Short Sale settlement went off with barely a hitch.

It all started two months earlier, on October 1st, when this Bristow single family home in Linton Crest hit the market priced at $425,000.  Before the end of that first day on the market, we had a full price offer.  My Sellers had that offer and several others to choose from. They naturally chose the full price offer, that also gave them a 90 day window to obtain Short Sale Approval from Bank of America (1st trust) and Wells Fargo (2nd trust.) 

Just as things were moving along closer to approval with Bank of America and we had a good read on where Wells Fargo was headed with the terms of their own approval, the Buyers got cold feet.  They wanted out of the deal.  As any Short Sale Agent knows, within a couple days of hearing that, you are guaranteed to get Short Sale Approval.  And we did!  Only now, we were off with our back-up offer and starting over with Bank of America.  Wells Fargo let us keep our same negotiator and just send in the new contract.

The back-up offer, interestingly enough, was an offer that came in two weeks after the first contract was ratified.  None of the offers in the multiple offer scenario had wanted to be in back-up position. Their loss.  The back-up offer had been a few thousand shy of the amount wanted by Bank of America. So the new Buyers rewrote their offer and our new contract was dated November 4th. 

Within one month we had Bank of America's approval and Wells Fargo's approval terms verbally.  The Buyer's began their loan processsing and did the home inspection, all with the goal of hitting our December 30th settlement date, as proposed by Bank of America.  By mid-Decmeber we had Wells Fargo's approval letter in hand. 

The only glitch we faced was the Buyers' lender (Bank of America) having underwriting staffing problems so close to the holidays.  A few phone calls and another underwriting staff for Bank of America stepped in and pushed it forward. 

This Bristow Short Sale sold for full list price of $425,000 with no closing cost assistance to the Buyers.   The Sellers are thrilled and the Buyers are pleased to have a brand new place (in great condition) to call home for the New Year.

DESCRIPTION

Looking for an upgraded, spacious colonial in the Linton Hall Corridor that is move-in ready? In this home, just about everything has been done for you. Foyer greets you with a warm toned ceramic tile floor; a formal living and dining room opposite each other. Step straight back and you may just miss the den behind French doors, and the powder room to your left as the soaring two-story family room catches your attention. There’s something about the gas fireplace in the center of this room, with its stone façade going all the way to the ceiling that keep your eyes coming back. As you would expect, the family room is open to an eat-in kitchen. This is the kitchen that cooks dream about: stainless steel appliances, upgraded cherry cabinets, granite counters, a large island, and that same warm ceramic flooring that greeted you in the foyer. A door, just off the eat-in area, is begging for you to step outside onto the large wood deck, accented with its black metal spindles. Before you can even take in a breath of the fresh air, you see the six foot high privacy fence that encloses the large backyard. (It’s made of cedar to avoid warping boards.) It’s too easy to stand here and start planning your next outdoor event. Get back inside. You missed the laundry room/mudroom just off the kitchen. This is where you’ll enter from the two car garage. And you’ll enjoy the fact that the full size washer and dryer will be here when you move in. Upstairs hallway gives an impressive overlook to that two story family room, and foyer on the opposite side. Up here, you’ll find a Master Suite with sitting area, tray ceiling, large walk-in closet and a bathroom that can’t help but make you smile. A garden tub, two separate vanities, stall shower and water closet finish off this luxury suite. The remaining three bedrooms are all generously sized and share a remaining full bathroom. Where the Master Suite invited you to relax and take a load off, the basement brings visions of entertaining and recreation. The wet bar in the main recreation room is a convenience you like to see in a basement. Another finished room, currently being used as a billiards room, has plenty of space for a pool table or other large furnishings. You’ll be able to move in those furnishings in through the basement door, walk-up basement entrance in the rear of the home. And if you’d like a spot to work out, there is yet another finished room in the basement, right next door to a full bathroom. Mix it up how you like, there is plenty of room in the lower level. This home has much to offer a patient buyer. It is a short sale, and as such, will require anywhere from 60 to 90 days minimum for bank approval. If this home isn’t worth waiting for, I don’t know what is.

The Unofficial Skate Park of Bristow-Gainesville, VA
Chris Ann Cleland, Associate Broker, Northern VA (Long & Foster REALTORS®, Manassas, VA)

The Unofficial Skate Park of Bristow-Gainesville, VA

I am not a graceful, athletic or coordinated person.  So when my husband and I decided to dust off our inline skates and take up the activity again, we searched for a place where we could be away from traffic and hills.  Prince William County Public Schools have lovely tracks.  Unfortunately, they are posted as No Skating, Skateboarding, Etc.  So we tried empty parking lots.  We found the same signs posted in parking lots of churches, office buildings, shopping centers, etc.  It got to the point that when we would approach a potential skating site, we would joke as we approached the inevitable sign, insisting that they all read, "Don't even THINK about skating here." 

There is only one community in Bristow, VA that doesn't frown on public skating.  That's Victory Lakes.  They actually have their own skating area that is ready for inline hockey.  What a breath of fresh air.  Unfortunately, we don't live in Victory Lakes.  We live in Braemar.

Finally, we found a perfect location for skating right on the Bristow-Gainesville border.  It's a temporary location because it is a half finished road that will eventually be the eastbound lanes of Rollins Ford Road coming from communities like Morris Farm, Glenkirk Estates, Linton Crest and the back side of Kingsbrooke.  It is a stretch of the soon-to-be road that is a bit less than one mail in length.  Since it's already been paved, it's the perfect surface for outdoor, inline skating.  It's barricaded at the entrance of Linton Crest and where it connects to Linton Hall Road. Where you're there, you are very likely to run into young children biking, families walking dogs, adults jogging and the occasional skate boarder.  You might even run into my husband and I skating, or some other inline skater that has discovered this area.

Eventually, the two lanes that currently serve as the one eastbound, and one westbound lane of Rollins Ford Road will be the two westbound lanes.  However, that is at minimum a season of skating away, possibly longer.  The remaining portion of the future eastbound Rollins Ford Road will more than double the already paved length of road and digging has not even begun.   Most of the length of the road is still dirt and grass. 

So for now, enjoy the unofficial skate park of Bristow-Gainesville, VA off of Rollins Ford Road in between Glenkirk Estates and Linton Crest.
