Of all of the market reports that I have been doing this month the sales of attatched homes in Charlottesville and Albemarle County is the one area that has seen an increase in sales over the same time frame last year. Obviously this is an area of the local real estate market that buyers are comfortable buying in and also are comfortable with the pricepoint. While these figures are encouraging this segment of the market still remains in a buyers market. At the current rate of sales we have about 10 months of inventory on the market. This represents opportunity for buyers to take advantage of all of the choices that are on the market, prices are good, sellers still may be negotiable, interest rates are at all time lows, and first time homebuyers can take advantage of the First Time Home Buyers Tax Credit until December 1. This adds up to a good time to purchase a Charlottesville Virginia townhome.
