There were 50 new properties that came on the market this week, bringing the total number of active listings to just under 300.
The Reston market is very active but still very, very price sensitive. When you sit down with your agent to review comparable home sales, resist the urge to pad the price so you can negotiate it. That usually leads to lingering on the market. Your goal as a seller should be to find the best intersection of price vs. condition to motivate the buyers to take action.
Here are a few of the new listings for Reston this week.
On the Just Sold front, we had 22 properties go from PENDING to SOLD in the last week.
With 299 active listings, that leaves us with an average inventory of just under 3.5 month’s supply. The first-quarter sales in Reston were up by 10 percent over the past five-year average.
