Hey gang! It's almost spring, which means it's an even better time than usual to BUY BUY BUY as much Reston real estate as you can
leverage get your mitts on. And it also means it's time once again to play everyone's favorite "on-line" game of real estate wheeling and dealing, the High-Low Game (tm)!
On the high end of the spectrum in this go-around, we have this lovely home on Harborside Cluster overlooking Lake Thoreau. There are no pictures, but for a mere $1.399 million, who needs them? Can you really place a subjective image on equity, anyway? Besides, wait until you hear what this home includes:
Wonderful all brick 1st floor bedroom home on a waterfront lot. This home has been completely updated with the latest in technology. Lge. kitchen with beautifl cabinets, Miele appliances, refrig with built in t.v., water faucet over gas stove. enlarged master bedroom..a dream of a master bath with steam shower, soaking tub.That's right... it has a refrigerator with a built-in TV. We'll say it again: A REFRIGERATOR WITH A BUILT-IN TV. Who needs to see pictures of the house when you've got a REFRIGERATOR WITH A BUILT-IN TV? Just imagine -- you can watch Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous whilst noshing on cold cuts and hardboiled eggs during those late-night fridge raids, your equity growing with each and every bite! Awesome.
On the other end of the price spectrum, this townhouse on Emerald Heights Court is the least-expensive non-condo thingy in Reston. At $120,000 for three full baths in an end-unit "close to reston pky and fx city pkwy," it's a steal! Especially since you won't have to rub shoulders with the peons stuck on Fairfax County Parkway the next time you need to go to Fairfax City to return a library book or pay a speeding ticket or something. The Fairfax City Parkway is reserved just for discerning homebuyers like you! Plus, you can take the $1.27 million you saved from not splurging on the first property and put TV-enabled refrigerators in every room of the house, plus still have enough cash left over for, wedunno, a hot water heater with a built-in 8-track.
Well, that's just about all the time we have for this edition of the High-Low Game (tm). Until next time, keep your feet on the ground, and keep reaching for the ARMs!
