The number of homes sold in January 2018 is down by over 8% as compared to January 2017. The median sale price is also up by over 3.5%. As expected low inventory continues to be a factor in the Alexandria housing market. Buyers are also savvy to rising interest rates and that adds to the fact that supply just isn’t keeping up with demand.

Today’s buyers continue to be informed about inventory levels and current homes available for sale. They monitor current interest rates and resist homes that are overpriced. Overpriced homes sit on the market and become what we like to call stale bread – no one pays top dollar for stale bread. Making the best first impression when listing your home is critical to a successful sale for the highest price possible in the shortest time possible.
