Current Inventory In Kingstowne

There are currently 66 homes for sale in Kingstowne. An increase from this time last month by 7 but, important to point out that the Crest Of Alexandria a 55+ active adult community has added new construction listings and they account for part of the increase. Overall inventory levels saw very little change month over month. The Kingstowne real estate market is strong and homes continue to move quickly but, only when they show well and are priced correctly. By priced correctly we mean according to the market. Even though it’s a seller’s market overpricing a home is a big mistake that will cause it to sit and become stale inventory. Buyers are savvy and looking for a turnkey product. There’s no doubt it’s a great time to sell your Kingstowne home but, what if you’re looking to buy in Kingstowne? While inventory is low that doesn’t mean its non-existent. Having the right strategy and understanding that sellers are in the driver’s seat will prepare you to be successful. With interest rates slowly rising waiting to buy will cost you more. Interest rates are by no means high, they’re still historically low but, they are higher than they were, for example, this time last year. If prices continue to rise waiting will cost you more in the form of a higher sale price as well. While there are always exceptions, in general, this market is not conducive to much if any negotiation. Often times it takes offering above list price to be successful. Work with your agent to make your offer as appealing to the sellers as possible from minimal contingencies to a flexible closing date there are lots of ways to stand out to a seller and secure your dream home.

Is It A Buyer’s Or A Seller’s Market?
The seller’s market continues in Kingstowne. Seller's continue to enjoy an almost 100% sale to list price ratio and with inventory remaining low the market still favors sellers.

Current Inventory In Kingstowne
There are currently 59 homes for sale in Kingstowne. Very little change from this time last month. The Kingstowne real estate market is strong and homes continue to move quickly. It’s a great time to be a seller in the area. What about being a buyer? In our opinion the time to buy is now – waiting will cost you more in the form of higher rates (although slowly they continue to rise) and a higher price on the home itself. Being a buyer in a seller’s market means you have to be prepared to act quickly and put your best foot forward. While there are always exceptions, in general,
this market is not conducive to much if any negotiation. Often times it takes offering above list price to be successful. Multiple offers are very common and in turn, that means as a buyer you need to submit your highest and best offer upfront. Make it as appealing to the seller as you possibly can. Working with an agent who has full-time availability to work with your schedule and the expertise to guide you through the current market conditions Kingstowne is experiencing is imperative.

There are currently 60 homes for sale in Kingstowne. While we sound like a broken record we’ll say it again – supply isn’t keeping up with demand in Kingstowne. Homes that are priced according to the market and reasonably updated are going under contract in a matter of days, sometimes in hours. It is an incredible time to be in a seller in Kingstowne. Getting top dollar for your home still requires proper preparation and the right marketing plan. Buyers are savvy and are looking for a product that is turnkey ready. Overpricing your home in the current market will result in it becoming stale inventory and ultimately impact your bottom line. As a buyer, in order to be successful in the current market, you need to be prepared. Have your pre-approval in hand, be available to tour homes the day they come on the market, and present an offer with short contingency deadlines and your highest and best terms upfront. Working with an agent who has full time availability and a constant pulse on the market is imperative to be successful in the competitive market we’re experiencing.
