Foreclosure Alert Brandon Woods Williamsburg VA

Historically the James City County / Williamsburg Virginia area did not encounter the high percentage of foreclosures that we saw in some regions of the US. Overall property values in the region did not drop anywhere near what they dropped in the Arizona, Florida and other hard hit areas.

But as a result, they didn’t rise back up like they are doing in some of those other regions. Since there aren’t many foreclosures in Williamsburg I thought I would post an upcoming one that will be listed for sale in the Brandon Woods neighborhood.

Although we don’t have a price yet I can tell you that this home was listed for sale in 2016 for 399K.

It’s also not your typical foreclosure in that it is immaculately kept and freshly painted.

Brandon Woods is a unique neighborhood in that the homes are detached but the yards are maintained by the homeowners association. The HOA also takes care of painting the complete exteriors of the home every five years. All of this for a pretty reasonable monthly fee. ( Currently $270 monthly)

If you’d like to take a look at this home I’ll be happy to alert you when it does hit the market. That will probably be in the next few weeks.

Here are a few photos from when it was on the market previously

About mrwilliamsburg

I love Williamsburg !
Being “Mr. Williamsburg” and starting my web site in 2004 has been a great way for me to help people looking for homes for sale, communities and an “insider knowledge.” of the area.
Turned out I was onto something. Because I offer in-depth information and up-to-the-minute blogging, even international clients have found me. One couple, moving back to the States from France, told me that a post I wrote blog about grocery shopping in Williamsburg convinced them that Williamsburg was the place to be, and that I was the best source by far that they found on the web.
I’m happy to say that I hear similar comments from many of my clients looking for homes throughout Williamsburg and Hampton Roads.
I grew up in Virginia Beach, Va, After attending college, I worked at a number of positions including manager of a land development and construction company and business manager of a cut flower business that we grew in sales from $300,000 to $15 million (we were supplier to Whole Foods and one of the first cut flower suppliers to Costco).
In 2004, it seemed like a good time to simplify my life. I moved my family from Annapolis to Williamsburg. I went into real estate with Liz Moore and Associates, and was one of the initial agents when Liz opened her Williamsburg branch.
My sons Zach and Josh attend Lafayette High School and Hornsby Middle School and are crazy about sports and the outdoors.
I feel lucky to be living the dream, and saving two to four hours by not driving on the DC beltway every day. So, I can now spend my time with family while concentrating on learning — and sharing — information about living in Williamsburg.
In real estate, no two people or transactions are the same. Everything’s a challenge, and I’m rewarded every time in close a transaction and have the opportunity to see the smiles on clients’ faces.
