What a difference a few weeks can make. The weather has made a decided turn towards fall, and the Reston real estate market also seems to be in transition.
This past week in Reston, 17 properties went from pending to sold. The average number of days on the market climbed to just over 30 and the total number of homes for sale increased to 303, which leaves us with a little more than four months of housing inventory.
For home sellers, this means you must come into the market in the best shape possible for your price point. You have to do everything you can to differentiate your home. You don’t want to be one of many in the market — you want to create a market of ONE that tells buyers, “You better jump on this or it will be gone!”
For home buyers, this means there may be an opportunity to ask for closing costs and other incentives, but be careful, we’ll need a little more inventory to be able to call this a true buyers’ market.
Here are a few of the homes that sold this past week.
