What will this mean for you?
Well in Northern Virginia, the few weeks that follow Super Bowl Sunday is the kickoff to the Spring real estate market.
That may sound wild because most people think of Spring starting in April or May but when that time comes around, every seller lists their home. Inventory increases and creates more of a buyer’s market. If you list your home during the early Spring market it’s a lot less competitive. A lot of buyers are out looking to get a head start on the competition and we expect interest rates to still be relatively low. It’s never too early to develop an aggressive marketing strategy… And I’m here to help with that! So if you’re considering selling your home in the Spring of 2020, think about February and March as Spring (so long as we don’t have terrible weather) because it’ll most likely be the highest prices and lowest days on the market!
