Hi Mike,
I would say yes. Prices have come down and I feel are at the bottom. There is very little foreclosure activity in town. I would focus on move-in condition homes which always sell quicker when it's time to sell.

As both a homeowner and a lawyer, I wouldn't recommend that you buy a home for just 2 years. If you add up the closing costs for a buy and a sell, plus homeowner's insurance, taxes (they're high) and no guarantee that there will be much appreciation, you're better off renting. Rentals are fairly reasonable and you'll have your choice of neighborhoods.

It's hard to manage a rental from a distance and is not recommended.

Hi Woodbridge, Unfortunately, it is likely your house has gone down in value in a big way. Maybe as much as 30%.

Facts such as condition and curb appeal are major factors that can effect the overall value. Also, many of the homes on the market today are not up to snuff with competition in surrounding areas. When buyers looked in specific towns Woodbridge had special things to offer. Now with new buyers willing to commute a little and shop a lot, Woodbridge has to get more competitive with surrounding towns.

Without knowing your specific house, I can say that in Woodbridge, most homes would do better with targeted improvements and upgrades to match what is selling in the market.

Please feel free to ask more specific questions.

Wendy Taylor, CRS, GRI answered:
Hi I encourage you to invite three Agents into your home and let them see the condition of your home. They can then provide a CMA (comparative marketing analysis) for you based on what has sold in your area. I encourage you to contact Agents who carry the designation Certified Residential Specialist (CRS). These Agents have been qualified based on sales volume and education by the National Association of Realtors. Let me know if you need help locating an Agent who specializes in your area or look up CRS online.

Good luck!

It sounds like you need a new broker. A good broker should have been able to give you an answer within 24 hours, as well as having given you a list of all documentation that would be needed at your first meeting.
I will say that the industry has changed in recent months. Lenders are now asking for additional paperwork right up until the closing. Their requirements are getting much more stringent.
