Hey kids! It's been a while since we've played everyone's favorite game of Reston real estate wheeling and dealing, so grab the home version off the shelf, pick up your short-sale paperwork, and get ready for action!
Usually our high winner is a brick-fronted McMansion somewhere right across the Reston border, or a de-luxe penthouse apartment with breathtaking views of the Fake Downtown's attractive parking garages. But this week, we've got something a bit more exciting!
Our first gem is a rare investment opportunity for people who like cars, or maybe Slim Jims. That's right, the Lake Anne service station, which actually dates back to Reston's earliest days and is pretty interesting architecturally, for a gas station, is on the market.

On the low end, we were shocked to see there are no condos under $100,000. The market's going UP UP UP UP! This isn't the absolute cheapest property on the market, but at a mere $155,000 it is the cheapest apartment in the Heron House: a fancy studio apartment with a view that can only be described as "bitchin'."
Amazing Studio in Heron House on Lake Anne. Wood flrs, 15 ft balcony over looking the Lake, a wall of windows make this 530 sq ft home feel BIG!

You won't have time to notice while you're enjoying reruns of CSI on FX as you get ready for another 11-hour shift changing oil at your commercial investment across the street. Talk about Live, Work, Play and Get Involved (tm)!
That's about all the time we have for this edition of the High-Low Game, folks. Until next time, keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the loan modification stars!
