The market continues to move at an extremely fast pace, leaving many buyers feeling like they will never snag the golden ring of a ratified sales contract. Buyers are waiving all kinds of protections to be the winning offeror.

Buyers: Your best bet is to be ready. Get all your paperwork into your lender so the only thing needed is a ratified sales contract. Work with your agent to hone in on location first and then focus on properties. In the end, location is the thing you can’t change.

Move quickly. When you find one that fits, write the offer! This market is really hard for people who have a slower decision-making process. If you are in this category, do lots of homework. Look at lots of property online, go to open houses and understand the finances. This way when you find one you like you feel more prepared to make the offer.

Here is a list of a few of the new listings in Reston this week:

Limited housing inventory continues to be the watchword, though the large number of properties added in the past week with a status of Coming Soon may indicate that things will be losing up soon.

There were 13 new listings this past week in Reston for a total of 68 active listings. The market is very active with 37 properties going under contract and 18 being added to the market in a “Coming Soon” status.

Here are few of the new listings this week in Reston.

A few to watch out for that are in Coming Soon Status:

  • 1846 Golf View Court — 4 BD/2 BA — $615,000
  • 1829 Ivy Oak Square — 3 BD/2 BA — $419,900

There were just nine new listings this past week in Reston. Possibly sellers have been distracted with the news, maybe they are waiting for the so-called spring market. Whatever it was, we are left with a tiny pool of properties for buyers to consider. The total number of homes for sale is 82, which breaks down to 71 active listings and 11 in a “coming soon” status.

One interesting dimension of this pool of listings is that 78% of them are condominiums. The condo market in Reston is slightly softer than the market for townhouses and single-family houses. The average days on market for condos is at 65-plus days, while townhouses and single-family homes have averaged 21 days on the market.

As mentioned last week, the limited inventory is constraining a market that would like to boom. If you have a townhouse or single-family house and are ready to downsize, now is the perfect time. You will have the advantage on both sides of the equation — a fast sale and more inventory to choose from on the buy side.

With record low interest rates and people clamoring for a little more space, the Reston housing market wants to be soaring… wants to be… but is not. Why?

Well, there is very, very little to sell. There are currently just 73 active listings and only two of those are single-family homes. There are 10 properties listed as coming soon.

If you are thinking about selling, now is the time. This is especially true if you are looking to downsize. People who are ready to shed their large homes for something smaller can cash in on equity and then turn around to buy something smaller. Interest rates are so favorable that mortgages are as low or lower than the cost of a nice rental in Reston.

Here’s a look at a few of the new listings in Reston:

There have been a lot of new properties added to the Reston real estate market in the past 10 days as people gear up for the fall market.

Reston has 177 fully active properties on the market and 8 in a coming soon status. At the rate properties are going under contract that leaves us with 1.4 months of housing inventory. Interest rates are still at historic lows and the unemployment rate in Reston is sitting at 2.5%. All of these factors add up to a solid market.

Here are a few of the new listings in Reston.

There are just 184 properties on the market in Reston today.

The market is generally very active with 142 properties in a pending status that are making their way through the settlement process. Days on market for pending property is short, averaging just 12 days. For property in an active status the picture is much different. 25% of the housing inventory has more than 100 days on the market.

If you have a property that’s been hanging around it’s time to ask your agent for a new set of comparables, chances are you’ve come on to the market too high to drive buyer interest.

The real estate market in Reston is holding steady with low inventory and strong demand.

Our numbers at this mid-year mark are looking good. We’ve sold slightly fewer homes than this same time last year with 677 this year vs. 721 in 2018; but things are generally very strong.

There are 201 active listings on the market and another 8 in a “Coming Soon” status. The average-days-on-market for active listings is 56 days, which is way above the average for property in a “Pending” status which is just 24.

The driver for a quick sale is always the price. Price is every seller’s best tool for generating action from buyers. Be the best priced, best presented item in your category and you will shorten your days on market, reduce your carrying costs and maximize your bottom line.

We’ve got 206 fully active properties on the market in Reston.

They range in price from $199,000 for a cute 1 bedroom, 1 bath Northgate Square condo in a great walk-able Lake Anne neighborhood, to $1,750,000 for a stunning 14th floor Stratford House Place unit with amazing views looking up Reston Town Center’s main drag to the Blue Ridge mountains beyond.

Properties are generally selling quickly. Average days on market for properties in a pending status, (those that are under contract), is just 17 days; more than half of those pending properties went under contract in a mere 7 days.

If you’ve got something on the market that’s not selling, or worse, not getting showings, it’s time to have a heart to heart with your agent. Ask them to reevaluate list price and then listen and act on that professional opinion.

Here are a few of the new listings in Reston. I thought I might try something different with the “just list listed” so today we’re focusing on new listings priced at less than $350,000.

Last week’s “Just Sold” noted a brisk uptick in closed and pending transactions — this week fewer new properties were added to the market, meaning  that new listings are not keeping pace with the sold listings.

It will be interesting to see how this impacts the market. Normally when demand for a product surpasses the supply you’d expect to see prices increase. While we are seeing escalation clauses and “over-list” offers, sellers that come on the market with their prices set high are not moving.

The average days on market for closed transactions is 24 days. If you’ve got a house on the market that’s been sitting for more than 30 days it’s probably safe to say that you’ve not found that nexus of price vs. condition that signals to the buyer — “make an offer now, this one won’t last!”

There’s lots of activity in the Reston real estate market.

The new listings are staying even with the pending/sold listing which has our housing inventory holding fairly steady at just under 200.

Of the 35 properties that were listed for sale in the past week, 20 plus will be hosting Open Houses this weekend so if you’re in the market or, if you just like looking at houses there are a lot to see. Prices are ranging from 1.7 million in Reston Town Center to $199,900 in Northgate Square.

The Reston market is moving at a really brisk pace.

It’s a great time to sell, if you’re buying it’s a little more challenging. In either case the key to success is being ready. If you’re selling do all that you can to get your house ready. If you’re buying get your paperwork in order with your lender so you can get qualified quickly.

The spring market is upon us!

Inventory is low but new listings are generally keeping pace with property going under contract. The middle of the market from 475k-675k is super active and days on market is dropping.

I know I say this every, single week — but it bears repeating. If you are selling your property, the speed of this market is not driving crazy price escalations. If you want to see multiple contracts you should try to come on the market just a little bit on the lower side of your range. That is your very best chance of getting multiple offers with favorable terms.

Status: Pending Sales Past 10 Days

Inventory is finally creeping up – slowly, but new listings are finally starting to hit the market.

Reston has 171 properties on the market, not robust but on the rise. The market remains stubbornly price sensitive; listings perceived by buyers to be over-priced will sit, while those coming in right at the market price will get multiple offers, often going above list price but not by huge amounts.

The cautionary tale to sellers, you need to be the best priced, best presented item in your category. You can be a “fixer” but try to be as well presented as you possibly can be, and get to the right price!

Here are some new listings in Reston this week.

Reston’s housing inventory is finally starting to pick up.

We’ve got 165 properties listed, 10 of those have a status of Coming Soon — but much better than it has been! The market is moving at a brisk pace with days on market dropping to an average of 25 days. Expect more houses to come on the market as we move into Spring.

Here are some of the new properties hitting the market.

We’re finally starting to see a little more inventory coming on the market in.

There are 124 fully active properties on the market in Reston and, as of today 11 properties in a Coming Soon status. That’s up, not by much, but at least increasing as we move into the spring.

The past 30 days saw good activity even with the very limited inventory. 96 properties went under contract and 36 properties sold; predictably the number of days that a property is staying on the market is getting shorter as activity goes up.
