Manchester Lakes Market Report for August 2010 | Condo Inventory Increases

Manchester Lakes Market Report for August 2010 | Condo Inventory Increases

Manchester Lakes condo inventory is on the rise.  Currently, there are 22 active condos for sale.  In the past 30 days, only one condo has gone under contract.  With over 20 homes to choose from, one has to wonder how the sought-after buyer made the winning choice.

In the townhome market of Manchester Lakes, four homes are currently available.  Evenly distributed with two homes in the $200,000's and two homes in the $300,000.

The spike in condo inventory could be cause for concern.   If these units continue to stay on the market, and eventually go unsold, we could see an increase in the distressed property market.  With current interest rates below 5%, it could be that active buyers are comparing Manchester Lakes to newer communities, or communities closer in.  I'm still biased, though.  As a former Manchester Lakes homeowner, I always brag about the benefits of the community, including the amenities and proximity to shopping and metro.

Alexandria VA Short Sales | Under Contract In EOS 21 Wells Fargo Short Sale

Alexandria VA Short Sales | Under Contract In EOS 21 Wells Fargo Short Sale

One less Alexandria VA condo for sale in this current buyers market!  This Wells Fargo short sale is now under contract.  If you're looking to purchase Alexandria VA real estate, then add short sale homes to your list.  Not all distressed properties show signs of distress.  This 1BR condo was well maintained, had numerous upgrades, and the location close to I-395 and community shuttle to Van Dorn metro made it very attractive to today's buyers.

When looking at short sales in Alexandria VA, be sure to ask the listing agent what banks are involved, and how many loans there are.  As if you needed just one more thing to add to your due diligence list, but knowing what bank has to approve the short sale could be the deciding factor for some buyers.  I've had great success listing and obtaining approvals for Wells Fargo short sales, as they usually provide a decision within 30 business days upon receipt of all of the required documents for the short sale file.

If you are interested in finding a home for sale in Alexandria VA, and would like to find out more information about purchasing a short sale, please call me at 703-623-8759 or visit my website.

Wells Fargo Short Sale Approval | How Long Will It Take

Wells Fargo Short Sale Approval | How Long Will It Take

Wells Fargo has recently merged with Wachovia, and like Wachovia's Short Sale Fast Track Program where approvals are generally granted within 30 days, Wells Fargo is doing its part to keep property values stable by reducing the time it takes for a short sale to be approved.  Once your application has been received, along with your purchase offer, your Wells Fargo short sale can be approved within 25 business days.

 

What are the benefits for a quick approval?

  1. For borrowers facing a financial hardship, a quick approval means a more positive impact on your credit report.  If you are currently behind on your mortgage, a quick approval means no additional late payments.  If you are current on your mortgage and are qualified for a short sale, then you will likely have no late mortgage payments on your credit report.
  2. Short sales help stabilize property values.  Unlike bank owned foreclosures, there is more incentive for the bank to minimize their losses by selling the property at market value, instead of below, preventing the neighborhood values from plummeting.
  3. Your experienced Alexandria VA short sale listing agent is able to market the home, advertising to other buyer agents and the public that a quick approval is likely.  This helps to encourage buyers who would normally avoid short sales reconsider them.

If you are currently experiencing difficulty paying your Wells Fargo Home Mortgage, please call Wells Fargo directly to determine your home retention options.  Contact the Loss Mitigation Team directly at 1-866-903-1053.

As a Certified Distressed Property Expert and Certified Default Resolution Specialist, I help homeowners who are in distress understand their options.  These options may include loan modification, forebearance, short sale, Homeowner Assistance Program (HAP) for Northen Virginia military families, or other alternatives that may be approved by your lender.
