When you are looking for a new place to call home, there are many decisions to make. The only thing is with the current market conditions in the Woodbridge Virginia area with low inventory, sometimes that can lead to frustration.
"When one thinks of buying a home, you might think. We need to see lots of homes, we are not going to make a quick decision. We have plenty of time."
Make sure you are aligned with a local REALTOR® so you are getting the Coming Soon listings. This is the two car garage townhouse we have coming on the market in two weeks. Seller is asking $390,000. Best of all is the location. It is located in Port Potomac and you can walk to the community pool!
Then reality kicks in and you begin to realize things like interest rates, bidding wars, lack of inventory and price increases may jeopardize your plans to buy a home. It can be overwhelming and disappointing if you do not have a good real estate agent who can coach you on the big picture of buying a home.
I cannot tell over the years of the home buyers who hesitated and then look back and say.
" We should have put an offer on the first house we saw?"
Patty and I always caution home buyers, this is not the first home you saw. You have been looking and looking online and waiting for the right sized home, in the neighborhood you want, the one that offers the lifestyle you want and the one that is in your price range.
So never let anyone make you feel as if, you have not LOOKED at enough homes. This is the Internet Age. You look at homes all the time online.
As of this blog post today there twelve active resale townhouses in the entire Woodbridge Virginia area. Most of the two car garage townhouses are in the Belmont Bay community and are priced between $440,000 and $529,000.
There are two Coming Soon Listings priced under $400,000. Now what's great about the two that are in the Coming Soon status is they are the youngest townhouses available in the area. So, if you want and need a two car garage townhouse, and your budget is under $400,000 you have only a few homes to look at.
