Reston Real Estate: The High-Low Game

At $234,000 this charmer on Southgate Square is the cheapest non-condo currently for sale in Reston. Sadly, it's a foreclosure, something we're going to have to get used to.

For $1.874 million, this executive home is the most expensive. You could buy a whole row of the Southgate townhouses for what this pile costs. But only a certain type of person should apply, according to the breathless listing copy:

What exactly is an exceptionable buyer? According to, it's an objectionable one. I'm not sure this Realtor(tm) is going to like who he or she sees walking into the marble foyer during the open house. But with their share of a 6 percent commission coming to a cool $56,220, I'm sure they'll be able to spring for a secondhand dictionary.
