Lake Ridge Virginia Real Estate News

Do You Need Help Selling Your Woodbridge Virginia Area Home?


Erick and Companyhas been serving Woodbridge Virginia residence for decades. No matter what the market conditions, we continue to help sellers who need to sell and buyers who need to buy.   

Today I was reflecting back on some of the most rewarding sales over the past year. I don't mean financially rewarding ( a well earned commission check is how we pay our bills) what I mean is the real estate transactions where we were really were able to help a seller who needed to sell.

 The For Sale By Owner Who Was Truly Frustrated

This home was listed For Sale By Owner just outside of Lake Ridge Virginia in the community of Lake Omisol and I happened to see it on I personally  called and asked if he would co-broke with an Buyers Agent. He said yes. Then I asked the seller if I could advertise his home on my weekly blog post. He was flattered and said yes. Free Advertising please, anything you could to help would be great. Read here how I presented the sellers home in a post called What A Beauty Well, about another month went by and the sellers were frustrated. They called and ask me to come to list their house. I did. It was one month before Christmas. Here is the results of our efforts to sell this house. 13025 Merganser Ct SOLD By Erick and Company in 35 days! 


 The Desperate Call From A Seller Who's Mortgage Payment Doubled


This homeowner was referred by a past customer of ours. This family was in distress. They had purchased this cute little Dale City Virginia Cape Cod home. Unfortunately, their mortgage adjusted and ballooned and  they could not afford the $3000 a month payment ( I'm not kidding!) They had one of the worst predatory loans I've seen. I listed the home For Sale at the end of August. With my marketing campaign we got an offer in 24 days! Take a look

However this was a short sale and the process was grueling!!!! From contract to closing is was almost three months!  Even though this was a tough sale, I mean a hardship for everyone involved. We are proud that we helped a family in crisis, helped a returning Veteran buy a home for his family and kept another home from foreclosure in Dale City. We are Realtors...and that's our job!  


The Retiree Who Could Not Live Another Day As A Landlord     



This homeowner was also referred to us as well.   The home was located just off the Prince William Parkway in the K Section of Dale City Virginia.We had just helped her son buy his first home for his family. They bought a Foreclose Home just like this one. She was retired and was tired of dealing with renters. It's was time to sell. When I met with her, I asked her what her ultimate goal was and she said she did not want to rent the home again. So we agreed upon a list price. I went to work and broad casted this house out onto the Internet, I threw my net far and wide. And magic! My intense marketing plan worked again. Under Contract in 6 days!

Needless to say the seller was thrilled and now she is well on her way to enjoying her golden years without be saddled with all the problems associated with a rental.

The house had two 25 ft Boats Dry Docked next door! 



This was the biggest challenge I'd ever tackled.These folks were previously listed for half a year with another real estate firm here in town.  The home was located in the newest section of Dale City Virginia where homes range in price from $250,000 to $400,000. From all accounts when I did my research it appeared to be a lovely home and priced petty good. However, when I arrived at the home...I was in shock!  I thought to myself well I'm good however how the heck and I going to get this one sold? That is when I wrote this post Thank God For Lake Ridge Parks And Recreation it's a must read for all sellers and home buyers.

Erick and Company got the frustrated sellers home sold in 25 days using Erick's  marketing program! 

So no matter what you situation...when it's time to Sell Your Home in the Woodbridge Virginia -Lake Ridge Area, give us Erick and Company a call.  Keep in mind any Realtor can list a home for sale, put a lock box on the door and a sign in your yard. The question you really need to ask you is.
