Buying A Foreclosure In Woodbridge VA
What Happened To The Foreclosures In Woodbridge VA?
The Market Is Experincing A Shortage Of Inventory
The real estate market in Woodbridge VA is a sellers market because we don't have enough for sale to meet the demand from ready-to-buy buyers.
Back in 2007-2008, Prince William county was the hardest hit county in the Commonwealty of Virginia when it came to foreclosures. The county had over 7,000 foreclosed home for sale.
Today we have nine (9) foreclosures FOR SALE in Prince William County.
Buying a foreclosure in Woodbridge VA is not easy.
Oh, and before you begin licking your chops, thinking you can STEAL a foreclosre for a price WAY BELOW MARKET, the foreclosrues that are for sale are priced AT the market... and they will sell in less than two weeks, if recent history is correct (and it is).
The reason the market is so fast is because of the pent-up demand for houses that occurred 2007-2012, when potential buyer were sitting on the sidelines, waiting for something that would push them off the fence.
First, homes came on the market at attractive prices.
Next, the interest rates on home mortgages dipped below 3.5%, making monthly payments on homes affordable.
For example, a buyer could get a 3.5% FHA loan at 3% on a $400,000 house with principal and interest payments below $1,690 (Principal and interest, not including taxes, insurance, PMI, or APR) Folks could buy a $400,000 single family home with total monthly house payments around $2,000.
Our region was not as severely affected by the real estate market as other markets around the nation. Why? Because unemployment here is low. Other cities are still experiencing buyers markets, with too much inventory on the market, because unemployment is high. Layoffs and RIF's left folks unemployed, with no way to make their house payments.
So the next time you gripe about the nasty road traffic in this area, or the high cost of living, stop for a moment and be glad you have the means to support your lifestyle. Not a sermon, just a thought.
