buying a woodbridge va home: No Matter What You've Heard Cash Is Not Always King - 03/21/13 04:51 AM
There is an old saying "cash is king" and in real estate it often rings true.  But cash doesn't always mean your offer is going to be accepted.  Why?
It's simple really.  You can't offer cash at 75% of market value and expect a seller to be ready to drop everything and sign on the bottom line.  Even though a cash deal may come without the hoops a financed deal may have it doesn't mean the home is less valuable than the comps are.

In fact a lower cash deal can hurt everyone else in a neighborhood who is trying to sell … (16 comments)

buying a woodbridge va home: Lake Terrapin & Ridgefield Crossing Woodbridge VA Homes For Sale - 03/14/13 07:57 AM

Perhaps it is the low interest rates that are spurring buyers to realize the savings in buying a new home.  Per Freddie Mac President and Chief Economist Frank Nothaft "rates on 30-year fixed mortgages were nearly 0.6 percentage points below that of the beginning of 2012,, which translates into an interest payment savings of nearly $98,600 over the life … (14 comments)

buying a woodbridge va home: Taking A Look Back At Prince William County VA Real Estate Market - 01/01/13 07:20 AM
Though the official numbers for all of 2012 won't be released by the Northern Virginia MLS for another week we can take a sneak peek at where we've been.
Active listings in Woodbridge VA have continued to decline over the year.  As expected April to July were the high inventory months with a continual decline through the end of November. 

As a result of the lower inventory and low interest rates buyers found sellers being able to stay close to their list price when accepting offers.
Though it is to early to make any predictions on the Woodbridge … (2 comments)

buying a woodbridge va home: Settlements-They Aren't Supposed To Be A Game of Musical Chairs - 06/29/11 11:23 AM
Once upon a time in the real estate world, a contract specified a settlement time and everyone was there ready to go.  Now it seems the settlement date in the contract is just a mere suggestion of when settlement might occur.It seems to be easiest to point the finger at the lenders as they are the one's holding the documents but quite honestly there could be enough finger pointing go in all directions.  Documents that aren't submitted in a timely manner, documents that mysteriously disappear, last minute conditions added by the underwriter, unfinished inspection items, who can sort it all out.In … (18 comments)
