Alexandria Home Sales

 

Is Alexandria A Buyer’s Or A Seller’s Market?
Alexandria remains a seller’s market. There are currently 1,024 homes for sale, a small increase from this time last month. Slower sales during the month of August is not uncommon. With vacations and school heading back August is often a slower month. Buyers have more homes to choose from than they have all year but, that doesn’t mean it’s a buyer market. The need to act quickly and be prepared to make an offer remains. 16 days on the market is still very low and shows that homes are still moving at a rapid pace. The homes that sell quickly have similar characteristics – they’re priced correctly, they show well, and they offer convenient showing times for buyer agents to be able to bring their clients for a tour. Marketing and exposure no matter what the market trends will always be imperative to sell for top dollar in the shortest time possible.
