Market Update and Open Houses March 4th

Northern Virginia Sellers Market Remains Strong 

Lack of inventory is driving the market.

The good news for the sellers is there continues to be a lack of inventory so sellers are having little trouble selling their homes. In the past two weeks, we launched 8 listings and 7 are under contract. This does not mean sellers can over price their homes. Buyers are very well educated and do not overpay for housing.

Here is a look at which towns have the highest success rates as of March 2018. 62% of the homes in Oak Hill/Herndon are currently under contract while markets with larger homes like Vienna and McLean lag behind with 41% and 30% respectively. As always, inventory and consumer confidence are the market drivers.

This week we had 3 homes go under contract in the first week! Congrats to our sellers of Thomas Ashleigh in Clifton, Virginia and Drexel and Shady in Vienna, Virginia.

What’s Hot for 2018 | Flooring, Kitchen & Baths Edition

What’s Hot for 2018 | Flooring, Kitchen & Baths Edition

Staying up to date on the latest trends is a Casey Samson Team priority. We had our weekly meeting at Image Flooring, Kitchen and Baths showroom in Oakton, Virginia and we learned ALOT.  They shared the latest information on flooring, kitchens, baths, materials and estimated costs and we can’t THANK them enough. This knowledge makes us more valuable to home buyers and sellers. Everyday we need to advise our clients on any upgrades that will help sell their home. Buyers do not want to buy their parent’s house. Because of this renovation small or large are sometimes a must to get maximum value back for home sellers. The Casey Samson Team is partnered with this amazing company that can do the work for you. Image Flooring’s Team is on payroll and they are a class A VA contractor, so they can do it all. This work can be financed for 12 months which means you can improve, sell and get the benefit while never taking a dime out of your pocket. Call Casey to learn more at 703-508-2535.

Here is a summary on What’s Hot in 2018:

  1. Quartz is the new Granite
  2. Don’t Match, Contrast
  3. Prefinished hardwoods over sand in place hardwoods
  4. Soft Gray is still IN
  5. Subway tile is the go to tile for Kitchens
  6. Chrome wins vs Brush Nickel hardware
  7. Shaker Cabinets are the most popular and can be transitional or contemporary
  8. Convert to Frameless shower doors, shower frames are out
  9. Large format tile: The new trend is to tile all the way to ceiling
  10. Canadian Prefinished Hardwood is THE place to get prefinished floors. Buying from a source that buys direct from Canada (Like Image Flooring) can actually be similar in price as domestic “builder” prefinished hardwood.

We learned so much we have a few more for you. Hot colors for flooring: walnut, chocolate, gray/brown. Hot color for kitchen cabinets: Soft White, Bathroom cabinets: Espresso or Gray. Darker flooring with soft white kitchen cabinets is a timeless look and appeals to many buyers. The opposite  is true in bathrooms: Dark Cabinets/Light counter in baths. Engineered hardwood flooring over hardwood. Engineered hardwoods comes in pre-stained and have 12 coats of poly vs stained in place with only 3 coats of poly. 


Our next episode of Coffee with Casey will be a review of everything we learned above with even more detail. Follow us on social media for the time/date announcement in January.

Market Update & Open This Weekend August 6th

Market Update & Open This Weekend August 6th

3 Point Shoot at the Buzzer From 5300 Miles. Nothing But NET!

While Casey was on vacation in Greece, he received a notice that a buyer was withdrawing from the sale on one of his listings. The buyer’s mind was made up. Understandably, the sellers were frantic. Casey contacted the agents who had previously shown the property, as well as the buyers who had shown interest during the 3 open houses. Within hours he had found a buyer who regretted not buying the home. Terms that matched the original contract were agreed to and within 48 hours Billy Samson, the Alt agent, had a ratified contract, officiated the home inspection and seamlessly replaced contract 1 with contract 2.

Seller’s do not hire great teams for the easy ones.
Seller’s hire great teams in case something goes wrong.
The power and professionalism of a great team comes through to save deals.
#Workethic produced multiple options.
#Openhouses saved the deal.
#Clientfirst mentality helped us stay focused regardless of the circumstances.
#Professionalism made the entire transaction look easy.
