March was a fantastic month sales wise! The snow was gone, spring had sprung and the tax credit was still available! The momentum kept going into April and so far in May, has not stopped! Everyone is hypothesizing on whether or not the tax credit will come back and what impact it really did have. But here is the thing to remember! Caroline and the surrounding area of Fredericksburg and all of it’s neighbors are sitting on top of prime real estate! Our location between Washington D.C. and Richmond is ideal for commuters and families. Our prices are the lowest they have been in years and interest rates are wonderful! It is still a great time to buy and sell and we don’t anticpate the lack of the tax credit to be a huge impact on activity in our area. While our crystal ball has been in the shop and we don’t know exactly what the future holds, we look forward to a wonderful season and hope that the worst is behind us!
