Springfield, VA Market Report – 11/19/12

While Springfield as a whole encompasses a large area, these statistics are based on the recent sales activity for zip codes 22151, 22152 and 22153.

Total revenue, so far, has remained steady this year.  If you’re thinking about selling – now would be a good time since average days on market continue to decrease because demand is high in our area and inventory remains low.  The election is over and the news is good.  Interest rates will remain at an all- time low giving first-time home-buyers an opportunity to enter a market they would normally be priced out of.  With an influx of new home-buyers and high demand for decent housing, sellers are seeing higher prices for their homes and will finally have that opportunity to move up taking advantage of these low interest rates, as well.

I’ve said it before and I’ll continue to say it…If you’re planning to purchase, do it NOW while interest rates are low.   Home prices are going to increase again with the spring market.   They always do!   If you’re planning to sell, find out what your home would be worth in today’s market.  I think you will be pleasantly surprised.
