Under Contract in Marumsco Hills (Woodbridge, VA)

This single family home in Marumsco Hills hit the market on January 17th (2015) listed for $249,000.  The list price was chosen to compete with the active inventory that had been sitting on the market.  This home 2254 W Longview Drive in Woodbridge was Under Contract in only 7 Days.was a bit bigger, but had no kitchen or bathroom upgrades.  However, new carpet and paint went a long way to making buyers feel at home.

Within three days, the seller had an offer.  The next day, another.  I was getting calls on this home every half hour.  

The Seller waited to see what other offers might come in before sealing a deal on January 24th.  

If you are planning to sell your Marumsco Hills home this spring, I can tell you the buyers are out NOW.  Give me a call for a free market analysis and let's get started.  If you get the home ready for market and price it right, it will sell.

Tammy:  He was, especially since we were prepared to be on the market thirty based on the other homes sitting on the market.

Carla:  I definitely know my strengths and when I am not the best for the job, which is just as important as knowing what do excel at.  

Rob:  The technical time it will show in the MLS is 7 days, but big whoop.  It just took us four days to make sure the seller was getting everything he wanted out of the offers.

Kathleen:  The prep work on getting a home ready for market is no joke.  The best price for the best condition is what buyers want.

Lise:  I must admit, this one even surprised me.  

Dick:  With only an appraisal contingency, and financing final underwriting, I think it will be just that.

Bob:  When buyers are competing, the seller can make more counters to an offer than they would be comfortable doing otherwise.

Don:  Thanks.  I enjoy being a member of that group.

Jeremy:  It was clearly the top demanded home in the neighborhood which I didn't see coming since there were others with more upgrades, but priced higher.

Every time you type VA I think you are talking about a VA loan, Chris Ann. LOL. You helped the seller to choose exactly the **right** price to put this into contract, and that's what makes you one of the top agents in northern Virginia!

Beth: This was a referral from another agent.

Susan:  It was a good value for someone who realizes a bathroom and kitchen don't need to look brand new to be functional.
