Arlington County Market Report – 1/22/13

Have you heard about the law of supply and demand?   Buyers want homes that are priced right and look good.  When a home like that comes on the market, it is likely going under contract in less than 60 days.  Supply is decreasing and with demand growing, homes coming on the market now are priced a little higher than they were last year.

If you felt you were underwater on your home loan (meaning owing more on your mortgage than what you think your home is worth if you sold it) you owe it to yourself to find out the present value of your home.   You may be surprised.  Your home might be worth more than you think.   Is now a good time to be a seller?    Absolutely!
