What's Cookin' in the Bristow VA Real Estate Market this Memorial Day?
Our first cook out holiday during a pandemic. Hard to believe we've been sheltering in place since mid-March. St. Patrick's Day was a bust. No restaurants were open and we were ordered to shelter-in-place. Easter was a big downer. Not even churches were allowed to have services. Now, here we are more than two months later and we are still sheltering in place and the community at large are in social media debates daily over whether wearing a mask is necessary to stop the spread of coronavirus. All I want is a hot dog and some rest.
This Top Bristow Real Estate Agent has been at it non-stop with listings for the last few weeks. While some may believe this pandemic has shut down everything, the Bristow real estate market is running like a well oiled machine. Sure we could use more sellers, but that was the case last spring too. It's great news for Bristow sellers, like my clients who own 12007 Bristow Village Blvd. They got a fantastic offer last night and were under contract by 10:30 pm. Five days on the market and a total of fifteen showings. That is certainly not a market that is negatively impacted by the pandemic.
The sad thing for Bristow buyers is that they may be lead to believe that things are moving slower now because of the pandemic. Or maybe this is just the way buyers have been since the beginning of time. There were about four other agents who expressed interest on behalf of their buyers for this charming colonial, but none of them acted. They seemed to want to wait until someone else had written an offer. I'm not making the rounds at 9:30 pm to clue them in that we got an amazing offer. If my sellers wanted to wait until more offers came in, that's what we would have done. The offer they got was too good to pass up. So they accepted.
One of the other agents with interested buyers did drop an incomplete offer in my email inbox shortly after my clients were in a ratified contract with their buyer last night. That agent was less than pleased to learn . Then again, when you send me an offer with no buyer intials or signatures, you can put in that that same displeased category. Of course, in my world you has lost your right to be displeased when you send an incomplete signed offer that doesn't contain contingency addendums you expressed were attached, or a lender letter. You have to wonder if buyers even really know the business practices of the agents they have hired to represent their best interests.
Buyers are certainly out in full force in all price ranges in Bristow, VA. If you have a home you want to sell, but have been worried about the pandemic, give me a call and we'll talk about safety measures to keep you healthy during the marketing of your home. Or, if you are a buyer that wants to hire an agent that gets your offer together as quickly as possible and in the hands of the listing agent, with all relevant documents attached, I represent buyers as well.
