cj realty group: Please Pardon Our Dust While We Revamp For Even More Choices For Our Clients - 05/08/14 07:12 AM
It's been a crazy spring and I'm not talking about the weather in Northern Virginia.   
Over the last few months CJ Realty Group has been making a move.  We've been busy merging our real estate operations with Integrity Real Estate Group in Alexandria VA. 
In order to make the change as the Broker at CJ Realty Group I'm currently holding a concurrent license in both companies.  Pam Driscoll has already made the leap and her listings are now under the Integrity banner.  Over the next few weeks the rest of our clients and listings will make the transition as well.
This is a great … (6 comments)

cj realty group: Woodbridge VA Detached Homes Under $300,000 Are A Rare Breed - 01/30/14 04:55 PM
A few years ago you could have found plenty of detached homes under $300,000 in Woodbridge VA.  In January 2014 your choices are far more limited. 
Recently buyers contacted CJ Realty Group to find a home in the Woodbridge area for under $300,000.  This is what they discovered as we started their home search.

The market in the lower price points is competitive and depending on the property buyers could find themselves still competing against cash investors.  Being prepared before you head out is more important than ever.  The adage "he who hesitates is lost" is unfortunately true.

cj realty group: What You Get For The Money In Northern Virginia - 11/04/13 03:54 PM
There are plenty of HGTV, BRAVO and A&E network TV shows that talk about “what you get for the money” in certain areas of the country. If you are a prospective buyer relocating to Northern Virginia or already living here and considering a home purchase the same question applies only on a much more micro level. In the case of Northern Virginia the question may be is the neighborhood you are considering inside the beltway or south of the Springfield Interchange?.
Just to give you a general idea of what I mean take a look at this chart. It shows the … (2 comments)

It didn't take long for buyers to line up at the door to look at this lovely home in the Barrington neighborhood in Fairfax Station.  Listed at $675,000 by CJ Realty Group  we had  two full price offers within 24 hours of coming on the market.  After talking it over the owner selected one of the offers and we were fully ratified.

cj realty group: Beat The Competition To Your New Northern Virginia Home - 11/03/13 02:02 PM
One of the big complaints buyers have when they are searching the internet for homes is finding out the property they are looking at is already gone.  The larger national real estate sites could still show a home as active when it has been under contract for weeks and sometimes even worse sold months ago.  Even many local franchise sites show under contract properties and most update only once a day or once an hour.
Hearing the complaint CJ Realty Group responded with www.CallNovaHome.com a site updated every 15 minutes with status and price changes.  Once you create a search the link you … (2 comments)

cj realty group: Two More Belmont Bay Properties Go Into The SOLD Column - 11/01/13 05:49 PM
It's been a busy week closing for CJ Realty Group with two closings Belmont Bay.
The first closing was a top floor condominium in the Harborview building.  Unlike any other condo in Belmont Bay this 2350 SF condo had it all.  From hardwood floors throughout, hidden Murphy bed in the den and a view of the Occoquan River from every room.  The sales price was the highest condo sale in the neighborhood in 2013 at $490,000.
The second sale was a Miller & Smith Metroplois townhouse in the town center.  The 3000 SF townhouse was a short sale with two loans.  Approval on … (2 comments)

cj realty group: Looking At Homes To Buy? Don't Get Hung Up On The Current Owners Furnishings - 10/31/13 03:54 PM
To many times when we are touring a home buyers get hung up on looking at the furniture.   Guess what?  The same room can look completely different with your furniture than the current owners.
Here is an example of the same condo I've sold two times.  The original owners had more modern and sleek furniture.  The second owners had beautiful antiques.  The only change to the home was to switch out the the dining room light fixture Yet it looks very different.

As a buyer you should be concentrating on the fundamentals.  Does the floor plan work for you? What's … (51 comments)

cj realty group: Preparing For A Move Is Not Rocket Science-Plan Ahead - 09/29/13 04:12 PM

 
You’re selling your home and it's time to move.  Whatever you do don't leave planning until the last minute. Having made numerous moves in my adult life I've learned a thing or two.  The #1 tip is GET ORGANZIED. 
The day you accept a contract on your house is the day you should start going room by room to make three lists, what goes with you, what's trash and what to donate. If you haven't used it in the last few years (unless its a family heirloom) then chances are likely it should go in the trash or donate … (11 comments)

cj realty group: Staging Your Home To Sell? Don't Forget To Check The Comps As Well - 09/04/13 07:13 PM
Yesterday with 30 minutes to unwind I happened to turn on HGTV just as the show "Get It Sold" came on the air.  Having stayed out of the debate on whether home staging makes the difference between a sale or not, I decided to pay close attention to the episode to see if it would change my mind.
If you haven't caught the show before the premise is to take a home that has been on the market for awhile, have a stager come in to declutter and rearrange and have a Realtor® come in and provide pricing advice.  Okay note the … (6 comments)

cj realty group: Another CJ Realty Group Goes To Closing-Dawson Landing Woodbridge VA - 09/04/13 05:26 PM
It only took 3 weeks from accepted contract to closing on this Dawson Landing home in Woodbridge VA.  For those who wonder if the VA loan process is longer than others this should help put those rumors to rest.  This was a VA loan that closed faster than many conventional loans.
Thanks to Cathy Smyles from Long & Foster from bringing great military buyers who quickly responded to every request from their lender and kept the transaction on track.
Dawson Landing is located less than a mile from the Rippon Landing commuter rail station and  2 miles to the new Potomac Town Center.  … (1 comments)

cj realty group: When You Clients Give You The Warm Fuzzies Without Even Asking - 09/03/13 07:11 PM
Today an email popped into my in-box saying I had a new review on Zillow.  I've tried to be better about asking for reviews but admit it doesn't happen as frequently as it should.
So this 5 Star review was a nice suprise.
"I chose Cindy to help me sell my Townhouse in Springfield. At one point in time, Cindy lived next to me, and I was aware that she would be a fantastic agent as I wanted to work with an agent that I knew.
Cindy was the perfect agent. She put together a great video of the house I was selling … (12 comments)

cj realty group: Go And Show The Key Is Under The Mat - 07/28/13 02:23 PM
When you list your home for sale security is one of the things you worry about.  So how would you feel if you knew the agent has the key to your door under the welcome mat?  Recently I called for showing instructions on a listing in the Woodbridge VA area and that's exactly what I was told.
Sure enough when my clients and I got to the front door there wasn't a lockbox but the key was there under the mat.  My clients were shocked and I wish I could say I was too.
Perhaps the sellers agreed to this arrangement but … (10 comments)
