Hi Blue,

Your Realtor will show you comps for the area so you can understand fair and true market value. We also offer our clients a PTA (Price Trend Analysis) that helps determine where the micro market for this home has been and direction it is headed. You need to have a buy-side Realtor working only for you. The good news for you is the seller pays the Realtor fees.

My clients who have purchased Ryland town homes (like the link you included) have been happy with the quality. Ryland often has incentive programs available for buyers. Your Realtor will help compare these.

Town homes in Woodbury vary in price from $130 to $350+. Remember to factor in HOA fees when you are looking at your monthly budget. You (and your Realtor) need to look closely at all HOA docs to make sure this is an association that is well run, well funded, and will enhance the value of your investment.

Hi, Blue!
You're talking about new construction which is kind of a different animal than existing. I've been searching using the parameters you set out. I'm coming up with a price around $130K. BUT, the ones I found are not as nice as the ones you are looking at.

If you don't think the ones you're looking at are a good value, don't buy it!!!

I'm guessing you don't have your own agent. If you do, this is a question for your agent. Just curious, why didn't you find your own agent before you started looking?

Good luck~

Oh, well can i share a cautionary tale for you? I'm in the middle of trying to help people now who did NOT have an agent when they went to a new construction model. They are basically stuck with no agent because they didn't involve their agent BEFORE they went to the model for the first time. Builders are VERY strict about this type of thing. I would encourage you to interview and secure your agent BEFORE you start visiting or going to open houses of any kind. It will be in your best interests. Even if it's not me, I want you to be protected.

I am looking for an agent and havent decided on one yet..

In my experience, the type of townhome you would like, built after the year 2000, would be in the range ofr 1250-1500 and up. There is one currently available to rent at $1395 that I am aware of. I am sure others could be found, and you could probably find some very good properties built just a little earlier that have been maintained and refurbished in such a way that they would suit you well. Thanks for the inquiry and do call me if you need further help or ideas. Liz, 612-986-4105
