Any idea which model they have at the Carlton House and any other general comments?
He's actually a friend of another colleague, but I can ask around and get back to you on that. I'm actually surprised MORE people aren't buying properties in Reston right now, considering once Metro comes they'll likely see an appreciable return on their investments.

Really? Do you have any real evidence of that? Not having a subway in McLean, Oakton, and Georgetown, don't seem to have hurt their property values. A HUGE problem in Reston is lousy schools. Even people without kids know that schools matter and effect home values. The flip side is, cheaper homes in Reston than surrounding areas, because of the schools.

That would be great!

And yes, I agree with you, as the Metro becomes developed over the next couple of years you will probably see more people finding this to be a huge benefit.

"Even people without kids know that schools matter and effect home values."

Are you serious? I have no kids and could care less about the local schools. BTW, this thread is concerning the Reston Town Center, not generalizing all of Reston.

I'd like to hear this too. Just put in an offer at the Carlton house for a condo and am wondering how far up in price to go. There seem to be several competing offers.

We lease at the Market Street Condos. The location is great but the complex is a bit dated. We are renting a 2 bedroom unit with wood floors and a gourmet kitchen. It is a nice unit with French doors in the living room and bedroom. It also includes 2 parking spaces and extra storage.

The problem is that the the complex is now 10 years old and things are beginning to break. We have had many problems with the water heater and smaller problems such as broken/chipped tile in the bathroom.
