Current Condo Inventory in Alexandria

There are 311 condos for sale in Alexandria, the second month in a row inventory has increased. It’s not plentiful but, any increase is welcome news to buyers. While the condo segment of the Alexandria real estate market remains a seller’s market the time to buy is now. Interest rates continue to creep up along with home prices and waiting to buy equates to spending more. If you are thinking of selling your Alexandria condo it’s important to know what makes a home sell quickly. The homes that move quickly all have similar characteristics – they are reasonably updated, they show well, and they are convenient for buyer agents to bring their clients for a tour. Pre-marketing your Alexandria condo is a must, it builds buyer attention before it ever goes on the market. Having buyers waiting to tour your condo the day it goes active sets the stage for a successful sale. Pricing is and always will be a key detail to selling a home quickly for top dollar. If you’re considering selling now is an excellent time to do so. With that said, it does not mean you can overprice your home. Do not be the property that sits on the market turning into what we like to call stale bread. 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.
