Price it Right and the Buyers Will Come - 03/18/11 03:50 PM
This week, two of my Buyers finally found the homes they had been looking for -- and in both cases, both of them wrote offers the first day on market, facing competition in both cases. At the same time, similar homes in the same neighborhoods - in fact, in one case, directly across the street - lingered. Why? Simple. Price. In both cases, my Buyers knew from reviewing comparable sales that these other homes were considerably overpriced. And in both cases, neither of them "wanted the hassle" as one of them said of dealing with unrealistic Sellers whom they perceived were (27 comments)

Is the Real Estate Market Improving in the KINGSTOWNE Area of Alexandria? - 03/11/11 10:14 PM
It seemed at times during the winter home buyers were frozen by the cold temperatures and occasional snowfall. Now that the trees are starting to bud and the robins have appeared, though, the home buyers have reappeared as well. In the ALEXANDRIA VA 22315 zip code, which encompasses the very popular community of KINGSTOWNE, 22 properties settled in the past 30 days. At present, though, 65 properties are under contract. Since there are only 94 active listings, that's a pretty brisk absorption rate and signs are pointing to a robust spring market.
Thinking of Buying a Home in OLD TOWN ALEXANDRIA? - 03/11/11 09:47 PM
It is starting to look a little bit like spring around here...crocuses, jonquils and tulips are starting to emerge in local flower beds and trees are budding. Soon OLD TOWN ALEXANDRIA will be in full bloom - and beautiful. With only a 3 1/2 month supply of housing inventory in OLD TOWN ALEXANDRIA, prime properties priced well are going under contract relatively quickly. While there are still some areas of the country struggling to recover, the DC Metro area is moving full steam ahead. Remember, all real estate is local. Start your home search here and now. And if you see (2 comments)

Old Town Alexandria Real Estate Market Happenings - 03/06/11 11:54 PM
How's activity in the OLD TOWN ALEXANDRIA real estate market these days? I think we are doing pretty well.

At this moment, there are 118 fee simple active listings in OLD TOWN ALEXANDRIA, ranging in price from $349,000 for a fixer upper short sale (I showed this property over the weekend and "fixer upper" is no exaggeration) to $5,700,000 for a 6,700 s.f. spectacular piece of history: this 5 bedroom home was built in 1760. The average listing price (2 comments)
