Sales at Vienna Metro

Sales market at walking distance to the Vienna Metro -
With the snow storms that we had, people seriously started thinking about living within a short walking distance to a metro. Vienna metro is attractive also because of proximity of major roads, shopping, best schools and a choice of various housing options.
This is what you can find today within steps to the Vienna metro:
condos: 1 bedroom - 5 units - from 209k to 239k in the Marquis and Acadia
2 bedroom 3 units - from 319k to 325k in the Marquis and Acadia
3 bedroom - 1 unit - in Hunters Branch - 425k
townhouses with a garage: 650 - in Country Creek
without a garage - 324k and 383k in Circle Woods
detached houses - 506.5k built in 1950 - rehab or tear-down;
790k built in 2004 - 4br/4 1/2 ba
A couple of these are short sales.

There are 17 properties under contract - again for properties less than half a mile to the VIenna metro station. 3 have been sold since Jan 1 within 40 days. Several could not get financing.
As usual my advice is - get preapproved by a lender before you actively search for a place to purchase.
