What Does This Mean For Condo Sales In Alexandria?

The condo market in Alexandria shifted to a buyer’s market in October. With interest rates remaining low and an increase in inventory now is a great time to purchase a condo in Alexandria. It’s not bad news for seller’s either – the days on the market remain fairly low and the sale to list price ratio is remains strong. With increased inventory and the shift to a buyer’s market sellers do need to be extremely mindful that they only get one shot to make a first impression. It needs to be a good one! Hire the right agent that knows your neighborhood and who can help you prepare your condo for sale. Condos that are going under contract quickly and selling for the highest price have three things in common: they show well, are properly priced according to the market, and are easy for agents to show to their buyers.
