Bob: I will probably be selling my house in Fairfax's Greenbriar neighborhood in the months ahead. It is such a pleasant and convenient community that I hate to leave it, but it looks like I will be relocating soon.
I was wondering if you could post a report that will show homes that have sold here the last 3 months or so? I want to see what is happening with sales trend in the neighborhood.
Also, before you do that could you post a link to show me what homes are currently for sale in Greenbriar?
Steve: Happy to do so Bob.
This link shows the 15 homes for sale in Greenbriar as of this morning,
The following link shows those 31 homes that have sold in Greenbriar since March 2014:
Diane: What home styles can I find in Greenbriar?
Steve: The community is dominated by 5 familiar styles: the colonial, splt foyer, rambler, split level and cape cod. The pictures in this post are of Greenbriar.
Ted: What schools serve Greenbriar?
Steve: Greenbriar is served by the following schools, with links embedded:
Greenbriar East Elementary
Always double check the Fairfax County School Locater websiteby entering in the address of any home you plan to purchase. School boundaries change and 3rd party on line school info is not always up to date or accurate.
A follow up email or phone call to the school would also be advisable.
Fred: Is there any shopping close by?
Steve: There are more options for shopping, entertainment and dining near Greenbriar than you can shake a stick at.
You can certainly get everything for your daily needs right out the route 50 entrance of the community.
The Greenbriar Shopping Center is right there, Sully Plaza is just a short hop down the road and Fair Oaks, Fair Lakes and Fairfax Corner are all not much more than 10 minutes away. You can get anywhere from Greenbriar.
Reston Town Center is just a 15 minute jump down the Fairfax Countyup the road a couple miles so all the shopping and dining establishments there are easily the disposal of Hunters Square residents.
Diane: Greenbriar sounds good and looks great from these photos. What philosophical advice
would you give us regarding our Fairfax house
Steve: Check out the totality of the choices before you, analyze your needs and wants, separate the two, visit as many properties as you need to until you can connect with just the right home for you. It will be almost a spiritual sensation....a 1970’s terminology…you should feel the right “vibe”.
The right real estate agent will understand this and enjoy the hunt as much as you will…do not work with anyone with whom YOU don't also have that “vibe”..... there is no point in that.
....And try to be at peace about the whole process.
Diane: Would you and your wife be interested in helping us find just the right home?
Steve: Happy to help with no hassle and no pressure Diane. Just drop us a line and we can chat about your requirements.
