The housing market has been experiencing major changes compared to even just a year ago as demand outstrips supply. In many areas, houses have been selling for much higher than their list price as buyers compete for limited inventory. While the current market is generally a seller’s market, this could change as the real estate market in Virginia starts returning to normal. As of now, the housing market is still considered healthy, especially for sellers who are looking to get the best price for their home. Buyers can also benefit from a healthy housing market as more and more opportunities to achieve their goals come up. As rates remain low and the economy opens up, now is a good time to list or to buy in the MLS Virginia area.
The Virginia Real Estate Market
Overall, home prices in Virginia remain higher than usual due to low inventory and high demand. Homes are also selling faster than normal. Selection and price pressures vary by region. Alexandria and Arlington county have seen a rise in inventory recently. The market in Fairfax County is facing some low inventory pressures, although that may be easing soon. Low mortgage rates are attracting a higher number of buyers, while encouraging homeowners to refinance and stay put rather than selling their homes. With inventory generally low, now is a good time to put your home on the market.

What is FSBO? FSBO home sales allow parties to save money by not paying the seller agent commission, which is usually 3 percent of the home’s sale price. When buyers represent themselves in these transactions, there is also no buyer sales commission, which can mean total savings to the seller of around 6 percent. Without the large sales commission expense, FSBO allows both parties to negotiate more freely allowing both to benefit from the savings.
