Neighbohood Market Guide – March 2015 For Active Adult Community 55+

Seniors in Transition

Many seniors want to live in their own homes as long as they can while others need to move on to one of the many residential options that lay head. That transition is often a daunting one, leaving many seniors and their families reeling from some of the challenges. “There are often difficult family dynamics,” says Michael Bramble a Re/Max Realtor serving the Real Estate community since 1989. The “Senior Real Estate Specialist” designation and his community experience has taught him that “Sometimes the children and parents have competing interests. Sometimes they’re half a continent away and need someone on location to help meet their parents’ needs. This is a chance for specialty groups serving the senior community to significantly improve the lives of our aging member and their families.” Mike has had a lot of activity in Fairfax County at Spring Hill, a gated over 55 community and in Prince William county at Heritage Hunt over 55 active adult community close by the Heathcote Health Centre that has just opened and also Virginia Gateway, with great shopping and dining.

Mr. Bramble goes on to inform us that “There are often 50 years of accumulated possessions in their homes and the families call and ask if I’ll explain to Mom and Dad why everything can’t go into the new place.” Mike is a real estate agent who specializes in helping buyers and sellers in these community’s. He can help list or find resale homes for you.

Mary George of “Key Estate Concierge” knows this process well. As an established company serving Washington DC and Metro area that has a systematic downsizing plan assisting in the transition into the new home. Mary says. “Once the seniors see what will really fit, I am able to help them decide what to pass on, hold estate sales to sell other items, discards unwanted items and move what the seniors keep into their new homes. In the past month I have had met and helped 3 new friends and their family with this process in Prince William county at River Ridge Active Adult Community sitting above the Occoquan River in Woodbridge. River Ridge was built by Pulte Homes during 1999-2001. The community offers a large clubhouse, swimming pool, tennis courts, wooded walking trails and ponds for fishing perfect for our early seniors.” Call Mary at 703-887-1244 or visit her website: http://keyestateconcierge.com.

Manassas Real Estate-Why NOW is the Best Time to Buy

Sellers
Mansassas Real Estate

The early Spring 2014, the Manassas Real Estate Market has had many challenges: snow, rain, and low inventory… now the tides are turning. Call me so I may explain and offer insight and strategies needed to buy or sell a house in Northern Virginia. If you would like to discuss your personal real estate market options or challenges, give Mike Bramble of RE/MAX Gateway a call (703) 946-9933.

Our inventory levels have continued to escalate since the warm weather broke in May. It has resulted in us having more homes for sale than any time since October on 2011. As we enter the summertime, the season generally slows down which will increase inventory slightly, so sellers need to do all they can to attract the buyers that are out looking for a new home. Sellers need to position their properties accordingly, as there is currently a 2 month supply of houses on the market. The inside and the outside of the house needs to shine and show like a model home, as well as be priced to sell! As mortgage rates were down for the second week in a row, with the benchmark 30-year fixed mortgage rate sliding to 4.28 percent, according to Bankrate.com‘s weekly national survey we are still at the best optimal time to buy or sell your home compared to next year when rates are projected to rise.
My goal is to always provide you with excellent customer service, and a smooth transaction, so that you feel confident in referring me to your family, friends and co-workers.
