Is It A Buyer’s Market or a Seller’s Market?

The Alexandria market shifted from a seller’s market to a stable market in January. Buyers have more inventory to choose from and sellers are seeing increased days on the market. A stable market is good news for both buyers and sellers because it’s a level playing field. Seller’s need to be increasingly mindful that there’s only one chance to make a first impression. Attracting buyers to your home from the day it hits the market is important and in order to do that you need to make sure it shows well, is priced according to the market, and is convenient for their agents to get them in for a tour. Proper preparation before going on the market is a must. Hire a local agent that knows the area and the current market. Having a professional marketer and negotiator working on your behalf is a key factor to a successful sale. Buyers that are ready to start their home search now are entering the market at a great time. Starting before the spring rush means more homes to choose from and less competition from other buyers. Interest rates dropped this week and it’s a great time to lock in at a low rate.
