Current Condo Inventory in Alexandria

There are 238 condos for sale in Alexandria, a minor increase, really minor (16 units) from last month. There continues to be low inventory in Alexandria. New inventory that comes on the market and goes under contract quickly have similar characteristics – priced correctly, reasonably updated, shows well, and is convenient for agents to bring their buyers to for a tour. Although inventory is low that doesn’t mean buyers don’t resist overpriced condos, buyers are savvy and they do not go after condos that are overpriced. It’s very telling if a condo has been sitting for weeks on end, it’s overpriced. Do not make the mistake of overpricing your Alexandria condo if you are considering selling.

Is it a Buyers or a Seller’s Market?

The market remains a seller’s market. Supply is not keeping up with demand and the low days on the market is telling of how quickly properties are moving. Buyers have to be prepared to act quickly when making an offer and making your very best offer right out of the gate has become a necessity.


If you’re considering selling the current market is in your favor. With that said, it does not mean you can overprice your home. Supply might be extremely low but, that doesn’t mean buyers won’t spot an overpriced home and eliminate it from their search. Planning ahead and teaming up with a local real estate agent that’s an expert in your area to properly execute a successful sale remains imperative. The details of preparing your home for sale, properly pricing it, and launching the right marketing plan will take you from listed to sold in the shortest time possible for the highest sale price possible.
