Why Wait for Spring to Sell Your Bristow, VA Home?
As we near the end of yet another August in Bristow, VA, I see many home owners that had attempted to sell their homes pulling them off the market to "wait for spring." Many of these sellers missed the early spring market, which really happened early on in 2016. Maybe they waited until June when school was going to be out, thinking this is is when families are looking to move.
The reality is that summer is not necessarily as busy with buyers as spring is, and there is no shortage of sellers trying to capitalize on them. All is not lost though. Fall is just around the corner. And here is what happens in our year end Bristow, VA real estate market:
1. As was already stated, a lot of sellers pull their homes from the market and wait until next spring. That means there is less competition.
2. Buyers, many employed directly or indirectly, by the Federal government, will be seeing pay increases with the coming of the fiscal year for the Feds on October 1st.
3. Some buyers will be transferring to our area as a result of new jobs created in the budget, and need to shop for a home in the fall.
4. And last, but certainly not least, the "Home for the Holidays" bug will infect many buyers that have made the emotionally charged decision that now is the the time to find their next home.
