Our Mobile App is the fastest way find Homes For Sale in Woodbridge

A frustrated caller from Woodbridge Virginia said she had found a home on a HomeSnap App. It was in her price range.

She was excited. She drove past it and there was no For Sale Sign.

She went back home to try and find out more about the home on her desktop computer.

She looked on all the big sites and nothing.

She began to realize that I was an agent in the area, and decided to reach out for information.

This is what I shared with her.

  • The home had been SOLD three and half months ago.
  • The estimated value on HomeSnap was $173,000. It was listed for $176,000. The home was a short sale listing. The interesting part for the caller was when she learned the home sold or $186,600. 

That is when she responded.  I thought it was a short sale? Don't they typically go for less?

Well not always.  That's another entire blog post.  The long and short of that is this. The banks know the fair market value of a home. A Realtor or Seller may be trying to get a quick offer to avoid foreclosure. If the buyer who submits and offer is flexible, and can afford what the bank ultimately wants then the house will sell for Fair Market Value. If not, then  the house will typically go to foreclosure. It's that simple.

"So I asked the caller if her time was valuable. She said yes. I said are you open to finding a better way, faster way and more accurate way of finding a home for sale in your price range? She said...PLEASE!"

The best way to find ACTIVE Homes on the market. Homes that are currently on the MLS System is to align yourself with a local real estate specialist who empowers you with TOOLS to help you identify neighborhoods and homes were you can afford to buy. Only you know what type of home and community you want to live in.
