It's A Cold Slushy Real Estate World In Northern Virginia

By
Real Estate Agent with Integrity Real Estate Group

Despite the cold weather the real estate market in Northern Virginia is still moving along.  According to the MLS since January 1, 2104 there have been 109 properties in Prince William County go under contract and 247 in Fairfax County.

One of the biggest things I've encountered this week while out looking at houses in snow and slush.  If you are a seller in Northern Virginia here are a few tips for you to consider.

If you are out of the area talk to your agent, neighbor or local landscaping company about getting someone to your house to clear it for you.  Don't take the chance that someone might slip and fall on the way to your front door.

Thinking about selling your Northern Virginia home this year?  Give Cindy Jones and CJ Realty Group a call at 703-346-2213 to talk about your homes value.  Let our experience in selling homes in all kinds of weather work for you.

Good tips and good things for sellers to do to make the best impression!  Having a mat inside, I can't tell you how easy that is to have, but it's not there!

Carla the mat inside is a must so we can take off our shoes and not ruin the floors.

Hello Cindy:  In my old market of Boston MA, we always knew a buyer was serious when we trudged through deep snow to go see the next home.  Now, even a flake of snow in Sun City Texas is a big event.

HI Cindy. Snow and ice make it so messy to get to the front door. Sellers need to be reminded to clear the path and make it safe. I was showing several homes today and the heat was turned down to 60. It felt awful and we hurried to move on to the next..
