Market Update February 1st
February Continues to be the Best Month to Sell
We measure the success rate of homes listed by month and find that February continues to be the most successful month to sell. The reason is simple: pent up winter demand and very little inventory. In January, lenders are reporting pre qualifications are through the roof but contracts are few. Sellers want to wait until flowers come out in the spring. The only problem is so does the inventory and many sellers find them selves bumping into May and June, the worst months to sell. If sellers are ready in February or at the latest early March, then its time to sell. 2017 was also a great year to sell. In 2014 and 2015 66% of the homes sold in Northern Virginia while the rest had to withdraw unsold. In 2017, 73% of the homes sold, which is a 11% increase. No one knows what the future brings, but now is the time to SELL!
