In Western Loudoun County, the new home builders are really getting aggressive on their pricing to attract every buyer they can...and that is really putting downward pressure on the resale market just few miles, or even a few blocks, away. builders simply have better pricing power than nearly any homeowner that has bought in the past 5-6 years. Key for resale sellers....get in like-new condition, continue to plant and have "mature lawn" advantages, and make the necessary updates like granite, newer-style lights, and updated faucets. Even small things can give a youthful appearance to pre-owned homes.
Your preferred local realtor, or I, would be glad to assist in any way. Best, Nikola
