woodbridge homes for sale: Dear Sellers Here's The Reason I Took Photos At Your Home Today - 11/07/13 02:38 PM
It's really quite simple.  Either you home didn't have any photos in the MLS or the photos were so dark and blurry so we couldn't tell what your home looked like.
It may seem like a little thing but photos help draw buyers in.  Most buyers are spending hours on-line looking for properties long before they make an appointment to visit a house in person.  One photo of the outside of your home isn't going to be enough to lure them inside.

They know the description of the home doesn't always match what the photos tell.  In order to make the … (14 comments)

woodbridge homes for sale: The Sweet Smell Of New Construction In Woodbridge VA - 10/13/13 01:06 PM
There is something special about being able to build a home from the ground up.   Of course when you are buying from a floor plan or model home you need to be ready for the head exploding list of options you will have to choose from.   Most Northern Virginia builders priced above $350,000 are including granite counter tops and base level stainless steel appliances as standard.  It’s a good start but it’s not usually where a buyer stays.
These are photos from new home sites in the Woodbridge VA area including Hope Hill Crossing, Eagles Pointe and Masons Landing neighborhoods my buyers … (2 comments)

woodbridge homes for sale: The List To Sold Prices Are Still Holding Strong in Woodbridge VA - 09/30/12 04:00 PM
It's always a surprise to get an offer on a Woodbridge VA listing and see a significant difference from the list price.  In Woodbridge VA the statistics show in the three zip codes for the area (22191 22192, 22193), over the last year the lit to sales price ratio remains close.

Yesterday I had a long conversation with a newer agent who wanted to make an offer on a property significantly lower than the list price. Despite telling them how to locate the most recent comps they were determined to go back to last winter as their comparison. At least … (2 comments)

woodbridge homes for sale: Knee Jerk Reactions Are Only Good In The Doctors Office - 09/28/12 05:36 AM
Unless you are an investor selling a home is an emotional process.   You have built memories, you have invested in your home and it is your home.  So when an offer arrives on your home that isn’t what you expected, a knee jerk reaction could end up costing you a sale. I’m not talking about a low-ball offer (if your home is priced right) but one where a little negotiation might get your home sold.   As soon as you put your home on the market you have to take the emotions out of the process and put on your business hat. … (30 comments)

woodbridge homes for sale: Will the Description "Former Model Home" Meet The Buyer's Expectations? - 08/01/12 03:12 PM
Recently my clients and I toured a few listings advertised in the MLS as "former model home" in local Woodbridge VA communities.  The first home was in a neighborhood built in the mid-1980's and the second was built in 1995.Today's buyer may be impressed with the term "former model home" if the home was built in the last few years but a model home that is 27 years old with original wall paper and white laminate counters doesn't say much for keeping the home updated.  A home built in 1995 with the original updated vinyl kitchen flooring and flower tile backsplash … (48 comments)

woodbridge homes for sale: VA Eligibilty Still Means You Need To Qualify For A Mortgage - 07/30/12 04:40 PM
This week an offer came in on one of my my listings in Northern Virginia.  It was a good offer, well written with terms and conditions that could work for the sellers.  However there wasn't a lender letter included which is a key piece of an offer.   When I called the agent their answer floored me.  "But they are VA eligible so we don't need a lender letter."For any agent who isn't familiar with a VA Letter of Eligibility perhaps it could be confusing.  In Northern Virginia we have a lot of active duty and retired military who are eligible … (18 comments)

woodbridge homes for sale: Do You Know What Your Pets Are Up To When Your Not Home? - 07/17/11 09:24 PM
It seemed as if it would be an easy showing. The instructions said to call the owner first so they could crate the dog. We had a pleasant conversation, gave them a time-frame and they said they would vacate the house so we could have it to ourselves. You have to love sellers who understand the process.
We arrive at our appointed time and just to make sure the owners are gone I knock on the door. From deep inside the house I hear the dog bark followed by a "shut up". Figuring that the owners hadn't left yet I … (43 comments)

woodbridge homes for sale: Does Your Home Bring A Smile To The Face Of Prospective Buyers? - 06/01/11 09:39 PM
There are a number of ways to make your home stand out in today's market. One of them is to make it noticeable to everyone that drives by. Honestly every time I pass this home it makes me smile. I have no idea what the neighbors think but since it is on a street lined with eclectic homes I'm sure they don't even notice.If you are thinking of putting your home on the market in the near future you may want to forego the bright pink paint and consider instead some more traditional methods of getting your home ready to sell.
