With the rising median sales price and low inventory, it is more important than ever for a potential home buyer to have a firm idea of how much home they can afford.  It’s also important to have met with a mortgage loan officer to get your loan process started so you can compete with other home buyers who are bidding on your dream home.  We are still seeing multiple offers on homes, especially in the condo or townhome market.  We also recommend that you sign up to receive email notifications on homes as they come on the market or to work with us to find you a home before it is active on the market.

Housing Market Update – Winter 2018

Housing Market Update – Winter 2018

Spring is often thought to be the best time to sell homes, but its not too early to start considering your strategy for the current market. The supply of available housing is very low making the time ripe to sell your home quickly. The homes which are on the market now are seeing high volumes of buyer traffic due to the low inventory.  Historically, the market starts to pick up at the beginning of the year.

We could see a very favorable start to the new year based on the housing statistics in Loudoun County last year.  The average home price in Loudoun rose to $506,051 which is a 4.62% increase from 2016.  In addition the average days on market decreased by a whopping -21.57% to only 40 days on market.  This is fantastic news for sellers!  Contact me for a complete list of homes sales similar to your home and a free market analysis.

For buyers, the mortgage rates are still historically low making it a good time to buy your first home or to move up.  I’ll be happy to send you available properties as soon as they become available as well as updates to homes currently on the market.  Contact me for your free list.
