How is the Lake Ridge Real Estate Market doing in 2017 Lake Ridge Real Estate Market Update 571-446-0002    Housing Market Trends - Sold vs. ListedUnderstand the difference between "listing prices" (what sellers are asking for) and "sold prices" (what buyers are willing to pay). By comparing these price trends, you'll have a good idea of where the market is heading. The median listing and sold property prices are calculated based on the market activity each month. Some sales are not immediately available from public records. As they become available, the data are updated. Homes that are priced right and are in good condition will sell quickly in almost every price range but definitely in the first time home buyer price range. We are still seeing homes that are receiving multiple offers ...

 Are you thinking of Selling a home in Lake Ridge Virginia? Well now is the time.....do not miss the spring market. Spring Market is from February 15th to about May 15th. Then it typically slows down. All bets are off this year. Currently most homes listed for  sale are selling in less than thirty days and many are getting multiple offers if priced at Fair Market Value. So let's do the math. 261 homes sold divided by three months equals 87 Homes Under Contract or Sold per month. Currently today, there are only 83 properties for sale on the resale market in Lake Ridge Virginia ( or what locals refer to as the 22192 zip code area!)So that means Lake Ridge Virginia area has less than a one month supply of inventory!The average days to sell a home is under thirty days. That will all depend ...

You don't see this everyday in our area of Lake Ridge Virginia. We have a homeowner who had reduced their home price less than the tax assessment. Why? They want to relocate plain and simple, it is time.These folks had a contract on their home earlier this year and the buyers pulled out. Since then the owner neutralized the home more, most of the furniture is gone, the house can be turned over to a new buyer as soon as their loan is processed.So with that in mind, the seller asked me what will it take to get someone to come see my house this time of year. I said " Money!"  I explained you are already priced under the tax assessment ( unheard of by the way) so the next best thing is to offer up Closing Cost Assistance. So they agreed."Let me ask you? When is the last time someone offered...

 The Lake Ridge real estate market is fairly brisk this time of year. The average time it is taking to get an offer on a home listed is 44 Days.  Of course some may be on the market longer or shorter depending on the condition of the home and the price.I noticed a acreage home with a pool went under contract in days of listing over off Russell Rd and another luxury home on an acreage lot in Westridge went under contract this week as well.A gentleman who visited one of our Open Houses was waiting for his home to sell down at the end of Lake Ridge near Rt 123 in Luca Station and his home went Under Contract. So things are selling.Even a condo we have on the market in Sherbrook received an offer quick and is closing next week.Traffic on our Open Houses has been BRISK.Here are some more sta...

This weeks caller series from Lake Ridge Virginia Real Estate News? Caller: Can you help us sell our condo? We  are relocating at the end of August. Me: Well let me come see your home. I can certainly help you, but you are not giving me much time. Appointment is set to see their home tomorrow. Average days it takes to sell a Lake Ridge Virginia condominium is around thirty days. That is if the home is priced at market and it shows well and passes the smell test. ( Yes smell test!)    This happens a lot with first time sellers. They underestimate the time it will take to sell and settle on a home they are paying a mortgage on. In today's real estate climate getting your home marketed and sold is not as challenging as getting the loan to closing. Here's the scoop. If you are thinking of s...

  The week is starting off quite well for another local homeowner in the Westridge Subdivision. Over the weekend The Twins Selling Real Estate were scheduled to have 12549 Manchester Way, Woodbridge Virginia 22192  open from 1pm to 3pm on Sunday March 8th, 2015. However on Friday evening I was able to call the owners with some great news.     "We are in receipt of an offer for your home!"   On that call I made arrangements to meet with the homeowners the next morning. Over a series of negotiations we came to an agreement and the contract was RATIFIED! The purchasers want to settle quick and thankfully the homeowners are in a position to do that.  This is not the first contract they had on the house. In week one we received a full price offer. The only issue was the following day the Bu...

Today's post is about a home buyer who had his VA Eligibilty available to purchase a home. We met him between Christmas and New Years at an Open House here in Lake Ridge Virginia. Back then he was in the "Just Looking" phase visiting Open Houses throughout the area in the hopes of finding what he was looking for. Unfortunately the home he came to see (a water-view townhouse) SOLD out from under him, but he really liked how Patty and I knew a lot about VA Loans and he felt comfortable enough to hire us to help him attain his goal. His goal. He had his heart set on a waterfront home. This buyer works hard all day, commutes like everyone eles and really wanted a place where he could look out the window and see nature.   Fast forward sixty days.

Learn why home buyers with a pre-approval in hand for up to $400,000 are growing frustrated with the buying process. Let's assume you  were looking in the 22192 zip code area of Lake Ridge (Woodbridge) Virginia area for a home. Would you  be surprised to learn 24  single family homes have contracts or have already settled since January 1st, 2015. And as I write this blog post there are only eleven single family home buying opportunities in the Lake  Ridge Virginia area for those with a budget under $400,000. Facts: The younger the home the higher the price Most were built in the seventies Currently most detached homes are  renovated! Of the closed sales, most sellers paid closing costs! Days on market are dwindling "fair warning" Buyers who hesitate are beginning to see SOLD signs in th...

"This is so much more than a pretty house, it's a home!" That was the sentiment today from those who visited out Open House at  1990 Brooke Farm Ct, Woodbridge Virginia 22192 in the Brooke Farm community is very beautiful. The home has been loved and maintained by the current owners.    The owners did everything right, the soft music was playing, the home was warm and cozy on a cold winters day. The sun was shinning through the sun-room window and the view out the back is so peaceful. Even on a snow day the view is gorgeous. The home has warm gas heat, a deck, patio, stone paver walkways from deck to the patio. The home backs to parkland so this view stays.   If you or someone you know is looking for a four bedroom home, with three finished levels, three and a half baths, then this coul...
