Cedar Cove. Contemporary Town Houses in Reston VA 20191

Sam: I may want to put my house in Cedar Cove in Reston on the market in a couple months.

I was wondering if you could post a monthly report that will show homes that have sold here in the last year? 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 Cedar Cove as well as those that are under contract?

Steve: Happy to do so Sam. This report shows homes for sale in Cedar Cove along with those under contract as of June 24, 2010: Homes For Sale in Cedar Cove, Reston VA

(Just one under contract at the moment)

The following report shows those homes that have sold in in the last 12 months: Homes sold in Cedar Cove

Once in these .pdf files you can expand the size to a more readable format by clicking on the “+” sign at the top middle. This report shows homes that have sold in the last three months…it also shows any seller concessions, last list price and final contract price.

After you look at this report, scroll down and there is a second format with pictures. Lots of good stuff to help you determine the market trends in the neighborhood.

Oh yes, and here is the link to the Cedar Cove cluster web site.

It is a beautiful neighborhood of 66 garage town houses just off South Lakes Dr in Reston 20191. Cedar sided and tree shaded, this aesthetic neighborhood has approx. 20% of the residences fronting Lake Audubon. A resort feel, but close to one of the nations top tech centers.

Ted: What schools serve Cedar Cove?

Steve: Cedar Cove is served by the

following schools*****, with links embedded:

Terraset Elementary

Hughes Middle

South Lakes

*****Always double check the Fairfax County School Locater website by 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 Cedar Cove than you can shake a stick at. Go out the main entrance, take a right and 3/4 mile up South Lakes will bring you to the South Lakes Village Shopping Center you can find everything for your daily needs. ( Also check out this very cool Youtube video of the area by Paul Thompson who sends his model plane up with a camera from this shopping center.)

Reston Town Center is just up the road a couple miles, so all the shopping and dining establishments there are easily at your disposal.

Diane: Cedar Cove sounds good and looks great from these photos. What philosophical advice would you give us regarding your house hunting adventure in Reston?

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.
