As we head into the holidays, the housing market is still humming along.

I always tell my clients that winter is actually the best time to buy or sell a home because all parties are motivated. There aren’t many sellers testing the market to see how high of a price they can get or neighbors just looking at homes in case they decide to buy. These are buyers and sellers with a mission. Currently, I have quite a few buyers focused on buying a home before the new year. If you want to sell quickly, if priced right, now is a good time.

This week’s feature home has been featured in this article before. The home was taken off market and recently came back on. It’s been reduced in price by over $150,000 and is now priced below the tax assessment. This home is in Ballantrae Farms, one of the most prestigious and sought after neighborhoods in the area.

With nearly 8,000 square feet of finished space, this is one of the larger homes we’ve featured. There is an additional 2,500+ square feet of unfinished space that can be finished. Situated on a .58 acre lot, this home features a Baccarat chandelier, Calcutta marble floors and a main level master suite. Priced at $2,397,000, this home is now a steal!

To see this beautiful home or any others, you can schedule an appointment by emailing or calling me at [email protected] or 571-263-0206.

Written by Brandy Schantz of TTR Sotheby’s International Realty, Luxury For Less offers tips and tricks navigating the competitive real estate market and securing the home of your dreams.

Luxury for Less features many different types of homes. Sometimes we feature homes that are extravagant beyond measure, some that are great fixer uppers, and others that are just good deals.

This article has luxury homes that have been reduced in price but vary in style and expense. This week’s home is just plain priced to sell. 614 Valley Drive SE is in one of the hottest neighborhoods in Vienna. This home is just simply big. It has over 6,000 square feet above grade and another 2,300 square feet in the basement. It’s situated on a large lot, over .50 acres, and has an assessed value of $2.1 million. It’s now priced at $1.899 million.

What makes this neighborhood so hot? This section of Vienna is very close to Tysons Corner, eliminating the need to fight Maple Avenue traffic to get to work or home. It’s also walking distance to Westwood Country Club and the Town of Vienna. The W&OD Trail is just next to Valley Drive and Wildwood Park is in the neighborhood, perfect for walking the dog or just sitting and enjoying nature.

This neighborhood has seen many large, luxurious custom homes built recently and spending well over $2 million to live in this neighborhood is becoming more and more commonplace in recent months. The best part of the neighborhood? The neighbors are pretty great. I live in this neighborhood and love the access for running, walking the dogs, and just saying hello to my neighbors.

To see this beautiful home or any others, you can schedule an appointment by emailing or calling me at [email protected] or 571-263-0206.

We’re back to McLean this week and this time we’re featuring a wow house.

This home, as well as many others featured in this column, was remodeled by BOWA. BOWA is a well-known and highly regarded design firm based in McLean. Founded in 1988 by friends from the University of Virginia, BOWA’s work can be seen in some of the most luxurious homes in the area.

I frequently recommend BOWA to clients seeking to remodel or custom build. This week’s feature shows off their work beautifully.

McLean is featured in this column frequently. It’s a great city located just minutes from D.C., Arlington and Tysons Corner.

McLean is most well-known for its opulent and luxurious homes and their powerful owners. It’s also home to many large companies and government agencies such as Capital One, Booz Allen Hamilton, Freddie Mac, Central Intelligence Agency, and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence. Just around the corner is Turkey Run Park which is a favorite for hiking or just enjoying the view of the Potomac.

McLean features so many great employment opportunities as well as proximity to shopping and activities that it’s no surprise it’s one of the most sought after places to live in the area. McLean is more than just large homes and affluent residents and today’s featured home shows the more historic side of the city.

This 1941 brick colonial is in Chesterbrook Woods on a large corner lot. If you are looking for a home with charm, this is it. Old world charm with a new world kitchen!

Vienna is one of the most popular locations in our area and is frequently featured as one of the best towns to live in on many lists.

Vienna has a small-town charm that has outlasted the growth of the D.C. area and Tysons Corner. The W&OD Trail runs through Vienna making it a cute place to walk around or just head out for a run or bike. It’s the kind of place where people still stop to say hello and often a visit to the Giant grocery store turns into an hour of socializing with your neighbors. Vienna is also home to many beautiful houses and is a great place to buy or build your dream home.

This beautiful home features 8,200 square feet of living space on nearly an acre of land! The gourmet kitchen is unforgettable and upgrades are numerable. The grand bath in the master suite features heated floors, Carerra Gold Marble and Rohl fixures. The newly added 5th bedroom above the garage is perfect for that extra guest space.

This week felt like another good time to feature a home that is opulent and extravagant.

McLean is home to many luxurious and extravagant homes. There are certain streets that are well known for being home to some of this area’s most powerful people. Ballantrae Lane has been featured in this article in the past. Today, I’m featuring Benjamin Street. Benjamin is a street in Langley Forest, one of the most exclusive neighborhoods in the D.C. area.

Langley Forest is situated just along the Potomac River and minutes from both Tysons Corner and Washington, D.C. It features the who’s who of the area and is one of the top neighborhoods to buy in if you are looking for prestige.

This beautiful home has 12,000 square feet on nearly 1 acre of land. The grand marble foyer and floating staircase make this a wow house from the moment you walk in. My favorite feature of this home is the dramatic water fountain in the courthouse. This home exudes magnificence  before you even walk in.

Just reduced in price by nearly $400,000, this home is certainly the most jaw dropping of the homes reduced in price this week. Check out some of the other price reductions below, this week features some big ones!

This week I am featuring a new build home in Pimmit Hills.

Pimmit Hills is a neighborhood in Tysons Corner that has seen many tear downs and rebuilds, a hallmark of the Tysons Corner area in general. Pimmit Hills was originally developed in the 1950s and consisted of rambler style homes sold to returning WWII and Korean War veterans using their VA loans. The neighborhood is now home to many new build houses. The benefit of buying a new build home in Pimmit Hills is the cost.

The neighborhood is still close to Tysons Corner but home prices are significantly less than neighboring McLean, East Falls Church and Vienna. New build homes in the low $1 million range is becoming more and more impossible in many Tysons Corner neighborhoods but can be found in Pimmit Hills. The neighborhood has a great location in Tysons Corner and is convenient to Washington, D.C.

If you are looking for a very large home but don’t have a budget over $2 million, Pimmit Hills is a great neighborhood to look in. This week’s feature has nearly 7,000 square feet on 3 levels and features a 3 car garage, spacious bedrooms, a 2 level foyer and a large master suite.

To see this beautiful home or any others, you can schedule an appointment by emailing or calling me.

These homes range from a studio apartment in Falls Church for $150,000 to a stately home in McLean for $1,875,000.

It’s a new week and everyone is talking about ‘Career Day’ at Amazon’s new Crystal City location.

I’ve spoken to everyone from government workers to IT professionals to new college graduates who are excited to show up at Amazon’s new headquarters on Tuesday, September 17 to check out what departments will be hiring and what skill sets will be needed. According to an article in the Washington Post on Sunday, the company will not be hiring on the spot but is seeking to fill 400 vacancies by the end of the year.

Amazon HQ2 has dominated the conversation in our area since the first whispers about its possible location in the D.C. area. It’s also affected the real estate market trends. Arlington and Alexandria were named the two most competitive markets in the country by Redfin. If you have purchased a home in one of these areas this year or have been in the market, you know how difficult finding a home can be. Tysons is still close to Amazon HQ2 and this week’s feature is a great home close to the new headquarters.

This executive-style townhome has views of the Potomac and a location rich in history. The land was originally part of the Merrywood Estate where Jackie Kennedy spent many years of her childhood. This beautiful home features an elevator, wetbar and an indoor spa room. This home has all of the convenience of Arlington with a great price and spectacular views.
