Some Settlements Are A Bit More Complicated Than Others

Keep Calm and Call Your RealtorThe good news is at the end of the day my buyer's are getting ready to move into their new home in the River Ridge Community in Woodbridge.  This closing had a few extra twists and turns but with a good title attorney handling the closing all of the kinks managed to get worked out.


What made it different?  Start with an estate, add three liens discovered during the title search and four people involved in the transaction using a Power of Attorney, well you get the picture.  You just can't make up some of the things a Realtor® has to dive into when we are working with our clients. 

Fortunately for everyone we took it one step at a time and tackled each of the issues that came up.   We closed on our scheduled date and now it's time to break out the champagne and toast the end of another interesting transaction.

Downsizing is hard to do. Finding the right home takes time.
Peggy James, Lake Ridge Virginia Real Estate Specialist (Twins Selling Real Estate Team)

It was early this summer, a couple called me stating they had their sights on moving to the Lake Ridge Virginia area.re They shared with me that they hoped to downsize from the lifetime home in McLean Virginia to be near their daughter here in Lake Ridge Virginia.

The challenge. They had there heart set on a one level rambler. An over 55 Community would work for them, however they only wanted to be in Lake Ridge Virginia. Also the home had to be a detached home, not a condo. Fast forward, they hired me as their Buyers Agent and I would send them all of the homes tha came on the market in their price range so that they could get a good idea of the challenges ahead. As homes came on the market throughout the summer and fall many homes just did not suit their needs. 

As the months went on, their daughter and I continued to explore smaller older homes with floor-plans that could have been renovated to suit their needs. However, nothing stood out as " The one!" Not till one day last month. A home appeared on the market that was in River Ridge Subdivision an over 55 Community on the banks of the Occoquan Reservoir near The Westminster in Lake Ridge Virginia. The floor plan boasted an amazing one level living design with high ceilings across the back of the home. It was a spacious open concept floor-plan with three bedrooms and two full baths on the main level. I knew it was perfect. However, the home also had a full finished basement and a loft with full bath on the upper level. The listed price was $465,000. Quite a bit above their desired price point.

I asked them to humor me and come to see it, since it was vacant and ready to go. They both fell head over heals in love with the place and made an offer that day. Within fourty eight hours the offer was accepted.

Today was settlement day!

Goal Met!

As with all moves to a new area, it takes time to figure out what types of homes are available and to see how they match up with your needs and wants and your lifestyle.

SOLD! If you'd like to talk to us about how we can get your River Ridge home sold, just give us a call or drop us a line. 

 

OPEN HOUSE SUNDAY JANUARY 13, 2013

12214 Seaford Court Woodbridge VA 22192

Since the first of this year, only two 2 bedroom, 2 bath, 1 car garage, 1 level patio homes have sold in the Active Adult 55+ River Ridge Community in Woodbridge.   And they went under contract in 6 and 14 days, respectively.  Other larger floorplans, some with 2 car garages and basements, have sold, but the smaller 2 bedroom, 2 bath, 1 level floorplan doesn't come on the market all that often. 

That's about to change!  Now available is a 2 bedroom, 2 bath, 1 level Pulte-built patio home in River Ridge, with hardwood floors throughout, an eat in kitchen with adjoining family room with fireplace.  This popular Stanwicke model with 1,326 square feet, has a covered front porch, spacious living and dining rooms, along with an abundance of storage space, with closets galore and an attic.  

Located near multiple commuter options, with easy access to I-95, this Northern Virginia Active Adult 55+ Community is close to a wide variety of restaurants, services and shopping, including Potomac Mills, which is Virginia's largest outlet mall, with more than 200 stores. 

River Ridge Woodbridge VARiver Ridge has a large clubhouse, swimming pool, walking trails and tennis courts - putting the "active" in Active Adult 55+ community conveniently located in Woodbridge VA.

With underground sprinkler system and HOA maintained lawn care, the living is easy at this beautiful treed community not far from Historic Occoquan.  You can also put away your snow shovel - your low HOA dues will cover that chore, as well.  

One of the advantages of being a slightly older (homes were built between 1999-2001) neighborhood is the builder got his choice of locations, and River Ridge is certainly in a choice location.

Whether you are retired or still working, River Ridge offers a location that is second to none, convenient to park and ride lots, commuter buses and the VRE. Whether you are looking for a single level attached Villa home or an expansive multi level detached home, there is a floor plan for everyone at River Ridge.

And with its large clubhouse, walking trails, tennis courts and swimming pools - it's easy to keep active in this Active Adult Community!
