I was recently approached by a local homeowner who lives in Westridge Subdivision. He was toying with the idea of selling his home, however he was under the impression the market was horrible. He said "I dread putting my home on the market For Sale, keeping a lockbox on forever and just the pain of having people come and go for weeks. Peggy,I have to mentally prepare myself."
I said," Oh boy do I have good news for you!"
The real estate market has been moving at a steady pace here in the Lake Ridge Virginia area. WestridgeSubdivision is a very sought after community and one where detached homes tend to sell faster, than in local communities. It could be the fact the community has it's own elementary school, or five miles of running trails, or an awesome swim team however I believe it has a lot to do with location and lifestyle that Westridge offers. I suggested he take a look at my LakeRidgeVARealEstateNews Blog and sign up to receive an RSS Feed to keep up with what happening in and around the Lake Ridge Virginia area.Take a look at a post I wrote about Westridge some time ago.
I explained to him, that the average home in Westridge is selling in less than 40 days when priced at a Fair Market Price and that the average sales price is about $465,000 for a single family home. Of course he had one of the larger homes, and I said, just know that one of the custom homes on Tilney Ct just sold for $615,000! He said, gosh thanks...I had no idea. I thought it was a horrible time to sell.
Don't be shy, if your curious what your home would sell for. Give me a call at 703-851-3085.
Detached Homes Sold and Settled Westridge Subdivision Here are the statistic's for 2008 versus 2009
As of 12/31/09
Number of Homes Sold
Average List Price
Average Sales Price
Net Sales Price
Average Days On Market
The main difference between 2008 and 2009 is the days it takes to sell a home. Inventory is low and that means if you are thinking of selling, now is the time to command the best price! We call that The WinterAdvantage. While others are still packing up the holiday decor, you can get your home on the market and under contract, before the traditional spring market starts, Spring Market traditionally starts around March 15th and last through the end of June.
Regarding the townhome activity. There were approximately fourty townhomes that have sold in each calendar year. The average list price from 2008 to 2009 dropped 3.1%, so that is not great news, however townhomes are selling quickly within 24 days on average in 2009, compared to 45 days on average in 2008. Also, good news for sellers is the Seller Contributions towards a buyers closing costs has dropped several thousands of dollars compared to 2008 settled statistic's! So it's not all bad. 2010 should be a great year if you need to sell your home.
