If you’ve been following our area market reports, you’ll notice that revenue sales in zip codes 22151, 22152 and 22153 have gone up $6,727,450 since April 2012. This shows we’ve been busy buying and selling homes this summer.
Sellers were pleasantly surprised to learn their homes were worth more than they had originally thought and that it didn’t take that long to sell (less than a month). Many got multiple offers because it looked good. Buyers were happy because they bought while the market is ascending and the interest rate on their new loan is the lowest it has been in history. It’s a pleasant surprise to learn your mortgage payment could be less than what you were paying for rent!
