How long is the Commute from Woodbridge VA to DC?

How long is the Commute from Woodbridge VA to DC?



What a great question and something I get asked all the time from home buyers that are not familiar with the area. With the recent modification they made to HOV lanes the commute from Woodbridge to DC should have improved even further.

Commuters have currently several options to getting back and forth from Woodbridge VA to the Nations Capital. 


Car: You can drive by yourself and either use the regular lanes on I95 or now you can also pay to using the HOV lanes which will guarantee a faster ride into the City. Or you can select to pick up sluggers or you can slug yourself. If you are picking up sluggers or have 3 people in the car you do not have to pay the HOV tolls. 

Slugging: Slugging is a very unique form of transportation know in the Northern Virginia / DC area. Slugging is essentially an organized form of hitch hiking. Lines are forming at commuter lots or on predetermined locations in DC for riders to picking up passengers that are needing to go to DC or back from DC to Woodbridge VA. This will allow the drivers to use the HOV lanes without having to pay and the riders get a free ride into DC. A win win situation for everyone. 

Train/VRE: There several VRE stops in the Woodbridge VA area. The VRE or Virginia Railway Express takes riders from any of the local VRE stops to Union Station in Washington DC.

Commuter Bus: The Commuter Bus PRTC takes riders from locations within Woodbridge VA, Dale City and Lake Ridge directly to Washington DC, The Pentagon or even Tysons Corner.

Ridesharing: There are several ridesharing options which are matching up drivers that are going to similar destinations. Out of the 3 people belonging to a carpool they always switch up on who is driving.

Overall commutes back and forth from Woodbridge VA to Washington DC are quick and easy.

What is my Woodbridge VA Home Worth?


Let’s begin with this direct statement:
I do not decide how much your home is worth – and neither do you.
The market does!


What a buyer is willing to pay for your home that what your home is worth. The market tells us exactly where to price your property to sell and how to approach the marketing of your
property. Here are the factors that will affect the value of your home in today’s market:

Price
 
Pricing your home properly from the start is the deciding factor on how long it will take to sell it.
 
Location 
Location is the single most important factor in determining the value of your property.
 
Condition 
The condition of the property affects the price and the speed of the sale. As prospective buyers often make purchases based on emotion, fi rst impressions are important. We’ll work with you to optimize the physical appearance of your home to maximize the buyer’s perception of value.
 
Competition 
Prospective buyers are going to compare your property – both the condition and the price – to the other listings in and around your neighborhood. Those buyers will determine value, based on properties that are listed or have recently sold in the area. 
 
Timing 
Property values are affected by the current real estate market. Because we can’t manipulate the market, we’ll collaborate on a pricing and marketing strategy that will take advantage of the first 30 days your property is listed. It’s the window of opportunity when buyers and their agents discover your property and are most likely to visit and make offers.

Your home will show so much better and more important it will look much larger too.

Woodbridge VA One of A Kind Holiday Light Show

Woodbridge VA 
One of A Kind Holiday Light Show 


Every year again the home owner at 15615 Bushey Drive off Cardinal Drive put up a wonderful holiday light show in Woodbridge VA. When I went there the other day Santa handed out candy canes and it was all around a great time. The lights are simply great.

Just watch the video as we drive through the North Pole display. When I got there spontaneously the other night there were so many visitors. There was a long line of cars waiting to drive through to see the lights. This is a really great thing to go visit with your kids or simply take your partner on a date night. It is a lovely display.

It seems like every year I go to see the Holiday Light show at 15615 Bushey Drive they are outdoing themselves from the previous season. Just watch the video to see for yourself, but please know the video doesn't do this great display justice. You have to actually see it in person to get the full pictures. It is so much better in person. 


Here is another Woodbridge VA Holiday Light Show must see. I did a blog about this one recently and took a video and also added holiday music. Click here to see my previous blog. 

I also took pictures of Holiday Light Decorations as seen on my way home. Check out the pictures I took right here

Finally put up my Christmas Tree

Finally put up my Christmas Tree, by Claudia S. Nelson with Keller Williams Realty in Woodbridge VA 


I finally managed to putting up my Christmas Tree. Yes I called it Christmas Tree. I could have said Holiday Tree, but lets face it since I was a kid we called it Christmas Tree, well we called it Weihnachtsbaum.

What do you call your tree?

It took me a little longer this year to get the tree up, but I love seeing it up and I love having my house decorated and getting into the holiday spirit. I will be baking Christmas Cookies this weekend with my friend. Love baking Christmas Cookies. I shouldn't be eating them but oh well, will be heading to the gym a little more, so I can eat more of these delicious Christmas Cookies. I will be making the same cookies my mom used to make. Love them. Although for some reason they always turn out better when my mom makes them. Oh well.

What are your favorite holiday cookie recipes?

Lake Ridge Woodbridge VA Real Estate Market Update - December 2014

Lake Ridge Woodbridge VA Real Estate Market Update - December 2014, by Claudia S. Nelson with Keller Williams Realty in Lake Ridge. CALL 571-285-4319 or TEXT 202-299-7671


Another year is almost over and look what happened in the Lake Ridge Woodbridge Real Estate Market. The above graph speaks for itself. The median home price in the Lake Ridge Woodbridge VA 22192 Zip Code has been going up continuously. There are hardly any distressed sales any longer which simply means more home sellers now have positive equity in their homes and are able to outright sell their home. Previously when a home owner needed to sell due to a divorce they pretty much didn't have any other options but to short sale as most likely they were under water. No in the event of a divorce or any other live event home owner actually can sell their home outright. In most cases even make a good profit from the sale of their home.

If you are living in the Lake Ridge Woodbridge VA area and are curious to find out what your Lake Ridge Woodbridge VA Home is worth in Today's Real Estate Market you can find out right here.
