In Northern Virginia and Arlington, especially, the market is hot.
Buyers are finding that the low inventory is creating a very competitive marketplace which is driving up prices and driving multiple offers and even having people drop contingencies withing their offer packages. Who is this good for? Sellers, of course. With very little inventory on the market in the Northern Virginia Market, sellers who do have their homes on the market, who have their homes “ready to sell” are finding more buyers bringing solid offers.
What is “ready to sell?”
Having your home ready to sell in this market means that you have eliminated any possible point of contention for the buyer, you have fixed up any loose ends, patched up holes, painted rooms and have removed clutter. You have made the home move in ready for any potential buyer.
- Depersonalize by removing your family photos so the buyer can envision themselves in the home.
- Price the home right. We can talk at length about this part of the process.
- Select a Realtor with a strong negotiation background who will support your best interest and get the job done right.
Since the market is like a boomtown right now in Arlington, Vienna, McLean, Fairfax and Falls Church, be prepared for strong negotiation tactics whether you are buying or selling a home. Either way… I would love to help simplify the process for you.
