Woodbridge Virginia Real Estate Inventory Shortages Fuel Quick Offer.
Last month the owners of 2908 Truffle Oak Dr in Woodbridge Virginia called to discuss their options for selling or renting their one car garage townhouse in Melody Landing in River Oaks subdivision. After listening to all their options and they ultimately decided they wanted to try renting their home.
So a week later the home went up for rent. The home was like a revolving door, so many potential tenants and their REALTORS visited the house. So many…but in the end it turned out finding a applicant that fit what the owners wanted was tough. There request was not unreasonable.
They want someone with very good credit, a first months rent and security
deposit, no pets, non-smokers and an April 1st move in date. No one even made an application. We had lots of calls asking the seller to lower the deposit, please allow for a pet, and for an earlier move in. Most of the callers would ask. What is considered good credit. When I explained they would like 690/700 or better. I would here CLICK.
So earlier this week, the owners called and said “Change of heart, I think we will just sell it!” So, Wednesday evening I got the listing paperwork ready, and on Thursday morning after everything was signed I quickly made all the changes to alert people the home was now FOR SALE.
I lead with the kitchen photo since I knew this kitchen showed better than most in the $282,000 price range. We posted on Instagram, Facebook, Google, and individual Facebook Groups and to agents who had expressed interest. I switched out the post sign, and tweaked all the marketing.
That is when the “Magic Happened!” The phone started ringing. Agent after agent scheduling showings within a few hours. In the end at 9 pm the same day I updated this home from FOR LEASE to FOR SALE the owners received a wonderful contract. One that was exactly what they needed and wanted. So imagine my glee when I called to say “2908 Truffle Oak Woodbridge Virginia is Officially Under Contract!” As you can imagine the owners are thrilled.
- They now can begin packing
- They now can relax, no more showings
- They can begin to look in a forward direction on start dreaming about what life will be like in their new home.
