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

The Alexandria market remains a seller’s market. Buyers do have more inventory to choose from than they did over the summer but, from an absorption rate standpoint there is less than 3 months of inventory. Buyers need to be mindful of inventory levels and be prepared to make an offer when they find the right home. Hiring an agent that’s available to promptly show homes and who understands the local market is key. Seller’s also need to be mindful that with there being more inventory than there was this summer that means there’s more competition from other seller’s. Your home needs to shine from the day it hits the market in order to attract the most buyers and achieve the highest sale price possible. Hiring a local agent should also be at the top of your list. Seek an agent that can guide you through each step of your home sale, you need a professional marketer and negotiator working on your behalf. The details that go into successfully selling a home are plentiful and you want experience and expertise working on your behalf.
