HOMES SOLD, LOUDOUN COUNTY, VA, February 2012-2013. A Modest Recovery

HOW LONG WILL IT LAST??  WHO KNOWS??Home in Lucketts

I just looked at the SOLD statistics for Loudoun County, Virginia for February 2012 and 2013.

Single Family Detached Homes SOLD in February 2012 - 130.
Average SOLD price February 2012 - $496,448.

Single Family Detached Homes SOLD in February 2013 - 153.
Average SOLD price February 2013 - $564,682.

That is an increase of $68,234 in SOLD prices.  That is good news for Loudoun County folks who want or need to sell their home.

Question:  Isn't it true that if I make a full price offer on a home for sale that the seller must accept it??

Answer:  Absolutely NOT.  An offer to buy real estate is more than just price.  It is a combination of price, contingencies, buyer's strength to close, closing date, etc. 


OF COURSE, THE MESSAGE IS -

FOR HOME BUYERS:  With home prices rising at about 14% year over year, it may pay to buy now rather than later.

FOR HOME SELLERS: More equity gives sellers flexibility to sell or not, short sell or not, foreclosure or not.

FOR AGENTS:  A modest improvement in home buyer activity is welcomed news.                              Home in Leesburg - $500,000 range.

Of course, we're not yet back to the house value peak of about 2007-2008, but every bit of equity helps reduce the number of Short Sales. 

That $68,234 gain in home equity just may mean a few less SHORT SALES or FORECLOSURES.

Nothing will go farther towards GETTING BANKS OUR OF THE REAL ESTATE BUSINESS than a significant increase in home values in Loudoun County.  I for one would look forward to pulling a list of homes for sale and not seeing one single Short Sale listing.

George.  I hope it doesn't crash again.  We simply don't know what Obama has up his sleeve.  Of course, I doubt he does either.
