Should I List My Home In The Winter Or Wait Until Spring?

Is The Winter A Good Time To List My Home
 

 

A question I frequently receive this time of year from sellers is should I list my home now or wait until spring. My answer is it depends – the decision should be based on your personal circumstances and what the current market conditions are in the area your home is located.

There are a lot of sellers that think waiting until spring is best but, if you know you want to sell in the spring it is a good idea to contact your agent now and find out what the local market conditions are in your area.

What if very few homes are for sale? It’s proven that when there’s less of something available it sells for more money and homes are no exception.

The myth that homes don’t sell during the winter seems to continue and the truth is that’s just not accurate. Real estate doesn’t stop during the winter. I think because in our area it gets cold and people spend more time inside it causes sellers to think that it’s not a good time to sell. This just isn’t accurate and it may even be easier to sell between January – March than it is in June – August.
 


Things To Consider When Selling Your Home In The Winter

If you are going to sell your house listing in the winter can lead to favorable results. The holidays are over and life isn’t as busy as it was for the last month giving you a little more time to decide when to list your home for sale. Before you decide to list your home in the winter there are a couple of things to consider.

 

Inventory Is Often Lower In The Winter

Let’s think about how many sellers wait until spring to list. More homes on the market equate to more competition for your home. Inventory in Kingstowne and many other areas in Alexandria is extremely low right now. Fewer homes for buyers to choose from plays in your favor.

Homes that are listed in the winter often sell quickly and for an excellent price; all of which are factors to consider when determining if you want to list before April. All markets are local but, speaking on Kingstowne I have found listing just before the spring rush is a great time to sell.

Many sellers are convinced that winter is a bad time to sell and that impacts how many homes are on the market. There are also homes that never sold during the summer and even the fall that have been pulled from the market with the intent to be relisted. Some even state in the remarks they’ll be relisted in the spring.

Our MLS requires a home to be off the market for 90 days before the days on the market will reset and the majority of the sellers who withdrew their home will wait for the 90 days to pass to reset the days on the market.
 


Buyers Are Motivated In The Winter

Keeping the cold temperatures in mind and the overall decline in activity that comes with winter in our area – buyers who are out and about looking for a home during the winter are more motivated than many of the buyers who are out on a beautiful and warm spring day.

Buyers are working with their own agent and they know that winter isn’t the most popular time for home sales but, yet there’s a reason they’re still out looking. Maybe they’re relocating, they may be motivated by the recent decrease in interest rates, and they may have a life change that causes them to need a bigger or a smaller home. There’s an endless list of reasons they could be out looking but, it’s safe to say a nice day to cruise around and enjoy the beautiful weather isn’t one of them. They are serious about purchasing a home.
 


It Gets Dark Early In The Winter

You might be thinking what the heck does that have to do with selling my home. Once it gets dark it’s not a good time for a buyer to see a home. I’m not saying you won’t have some appointment requests after dark but, you’re far less likely to have late evening appointments during the winter than the spring and summer. When I’m representing a buyer I discourage showings after dark because without light you can’t truly see all of the home or get a feel for it.

Winter will provide you with a little more flexibility and peace of mind that you’ll be able to maintain your daily schedule, especially in the evenings than if you sell during the spring.

 

Corporate Relocation Peaks In January

Corporate transfers happen year round but, they peak in January. Buyers who are being transferred for work are not only on a set timeframe they’re also highly motivated. This won’t apply to markets where people don’t tend to be transferred to for work but, in our market, it’s definitely something to consider. The more buyers interested in your home the better, and knowing that January is the most popular month for corporate transfers can mean more potential buyers for your home.

 

Closing Thoughts

Real estate is local and every market varies so if you are trying to decide whether it’s best for you to sell your home during the winter or wait until spring you should consult with a local agent who has a proven successful track record selling homes in your area and who is someone you trust. Receiving the best advice based on your personal circumstances and local market conditions will ultimately help guide you on what decision is best for you.

The Crest Winter

 

Low Inventory in Kingstowne

Inventory in Kingstowne is low, very very low and if you’re a homeowner who is planning to sell this spring consider listing sooner vs. later. Competition from other homes for sale in 22315 will be higher with more listings coming on the market in the spring but, with inventory so low right now you’re in an excellent position to capitalize on low supply and high demand. Homes still need to be properly priced and show well in order to entice buyers. Home buyers are attracted to homes that have a reasonable amount of updates. Make sure your home is well presented prior to going on the market. You only get one chance to make a first impression.

 

 

If you’re a home buyer in Kingstowne it’s essential to be prepared to tour a home as soon as it comes on the market. With limited supply your chances of other buyers being interested in the same home increase. Have your pre-approval in hand and work with an agent who is not just a local expert but, committed to tailoring the buying process to your schedule and goals.

What Is Dual Agency?

What Is Dual Agency?

 

Before I start to get into dual agency I want to point out that this article is speaking only on being an agent in the state of Virginia. I’m not qualified to speak on any other state. Laws vary by state and this article won’t apply to, for example, transaction states. With that said, what is dual agency? In Virginia, I am required by law to explain agency law to a prospective buyer or seller at the first meeting or first substantive conversation about real estate whichever comes first. In Virginia a real estate agent can represent a seller, a buyer, or both. Dual agency is when an agent represents both the buyer and the seller in the same real estate transaction.

 

Virginia Sign

 

While most people recognize the benefits of having their own exclusive representation there are often questions that come up about agency because it hasn’t been properly explained. It’s not something a consumer deals with every day and if it’s not properly explained you may not know what you’re agreeing too.

 

If you consent to dual agency understand that your agent won’t be able to answer a plethora of questions. Examples…

 

Buyer Questions -

How much is the house worth?

What should I offer on the house?

Should I ask for closing cost assistance?

What repairs should I ask for after the home inspection?

Question Marks

 

Seller Questions -

Should I counter the buyers offer?

What should I do about a low appraisal?

What repairs should I agree too?

 

With dual agency it’s very important to know the agent does not represent your interests as a fiduciary. Dual agency is actually illegal in some states. I do not agree with dual agency and believe it only benefits the agent.

 

In an exclusive agency agreement with your agent, your information is kept confidential, your agent will push for your best interests throughout the transaction, and advise you throughout the entire process. Your agent will also (and this is a big one) disclose ALL information that is relevant to you as the client. Bottom line, your agent will always be working to achieve the very best outcome for you. With dual agency that is all out the window.

 

handshake

 

Yes, it is legal in Virginia for an agent to represent both the buyer and the seller in a real estate transaction but, only with the consent of both parties. When acting as a dual agent the agent legally has to be neutral in regard to any conflicting interests of the buyer and seller. What does

that mean? A dual agent cannot satisfy the duties of full disclosure, advice throughout the entire transaction on every step, or even loyalty.

 

I compare dual agency to a lawyer representing the plaintiff and the defendant in the same case. If you were facing a lawsuit would you hire the same lawyer the plaintiff is using? No! That doesn’t even make sense to think of. It’s not possible to represent multiple parties in the same transaction and maintain each of their best interests at all times.

 

Gavel

 

Again, agency differs from state to state and it’s important to understand how it works in your specific state. In my professional opinion dual agency doesn’t benefit the buyer or the seller and it’s something I never have and never will practice. You should hire an agent whom you trust to exclusively represent your best interests.

Amazon Coming To Northern Virginia – What Does It Mean For Real Estate?

 

Amazon Coming To Northern Virginia – What Does It Mean For Real Estate?

Amazon, Amazon, Amazon, they’ve been the buzz word in Northern Virginia since they announced in November they’d be moving half of their 2nd headquarters to Crystal City which is now known as National Landing. National Landing consists of Crystal City, the eastern part of Pentagon City, and the northern part of Potomac Yard. Prior to the announcement if you drove through Crystal City you’d see a lot of office buildings that were barely populated and it’s been that way since 2005. They were once bustling and full but, employees were lost to the Depart of Defense’s Base Realignment and Closure project, better known as BRAC.

 

It didn’t take more than a day for calls to start to roll in after Amazon made the announcement. Listings that had been sitting becoming stale that were adjacent to Crystal City all of a sudden had a rush of showings and closed prices show sold for more than their list price even when they’d been on the market for weeks. Not everyone is celebrating though. From a different standpoint there’s concern over this being an area where traffic is already some of the worst in the country and where the Metro system has its fair share of problems due to years of deferred maintenance. 25,000 new jobs are expected to come with Amazon and 22,000 new jobs are expected to come indirectly because of Amazon.

 

Calls Coming In

 

What does that mean for real estate? While there has been a lot of buzz I think the effects will take time. Sure some buyers have already acted quickly and I think there will be some who still do but, not the majority. I’m not going to start quoting appreciation numbers. They’re nothing more than predictions and if one can accurately predict that they probably wouldn’t be selling real estate. The arrival of Amazon’s employees also isn’t going to take place all at once, that’s going to be a several year timeframe.

 

It won’t just be Crystal City that sees the impact of Amazon because real estate in that area is very expensive. Northern Virginia is expensive in general but, Arlington is especially expensive and not an area everyone can afford to buy in. Looking outside of Arlington and even Alexandria buyers will find prices more affordable and if there’s accessibility to metro I think those areas will also see an impact. Bottom line, not everyone can afford to live in Crystal City nor is there enough housing for that to happen.

 

Rentals also can’t be forgotten. The activity we’ve seen in Crystal City has been exclusively from our investor clients. Some who bought solely on speculation before Amazon made their announcement and some that bought in adjacent areas (Rosslyn) right after it was confirmed Amazon is coming. With Amazon comes relocation for employees and not everyone is going to be ready or even want to buy particularly if they’ve never been to Northern Virginia. It’s not likely they’ll be ready to commit to buying prior to getting a feel for the area and specific neighborhoods they do and don’t like.

 

Along with Amazon office space will come residential, dining, and retail space. The goal is to make National Landing a walkable neighborhood and Amazon will start hiring and staffing this year. There are a couple things that are certain, Amazon is coming, it will bring new jobs, and a facelift to Crystal City and parts of Pentagon City and Potomac Yard. As for what it means for how much real estate will appreciate that remains to be seen and I’m not one to speculate. I will be watching the numbers closely and sharing future updates on closed sales and inventory levels along with explaining current market conditions.

2018 Kingstowne Home Sales Market Review

2018 Kingstowne Home Sales Market Review

The tune of it being a seller’s market played in Kingstowne throughout 2018. Final numbers show that the number of homes sold remained fairly consistent, an increase of 16 from 2017. Sale prices were a different story; up by over 5% in 2018 and days on the market were down by over 11%. Sellers also saw a 98.7% sale to list price in 2018.
 


So what does this mean for Kingstowne real estate? It was an excellent year for sellers. Inventory remained low (and still is) which causes buyers to wait for new homes to become available and they are poised to act as soon as they do. We currently have less than a one month supply of inventory. If you’re considering selling your Kingstowne home reach out to me and let’s talk. Winter might be in full swing but, that doesn’t mean it’s not an excellent time to list your home in Kingstowne.

 

Kingstowne home image winter

 

It’s still important to keep perspective as a seller and not have a pie in the sky price in mind for your home. If you price your incorrectly and buyers perceive it as a poor value it will sit on the market. Bottom line, it’s an excellent time to list your Kingstowne home but, you have to be realistic about pricing and keeping perspective is key.

 

If you’re planning a move to Alexandria, Kingstowne is an area buyer's often consider due to its close proximity to DC, Tysons’s Corner, Old Town, major commuter routes, and public transportation. Kingstowne is an urban community with tree lined streets and over 1,200 acres of green space. You’ll find apartments, condos, townhomes, and single family homes along with amenities including a lake, walking trails, outdoor pools, fitness centers, sports courts, and tot lots.

A question I’m frequently being asked” “Is the market crashing? I heard on the news that it’s down.” No the market is not crashing, it is stabilizing in some areas and not everywhere is a seller’s market, some areas are even a buyer’s market but, real estate local. Hyper local. Market conditions vary in different neighborhoods so when you’re listening to the news just understand that what they’re saying isn’t specific to your market. If you’re a property owner interested in knowing the current market trends reach out to me. I’m happy to provide you with a free market analysis for your home! amanda@amandadavidson.com or 703-431-3755.

Final Walk Through – What Is It and Why Is It Important

 

 

Final Walk Through – What Is It and Why Is It Important

There can frequently be confusion of what a final walk through is and why it’s important. A final walk through can also be referred to as a pre-closing inspection. The final walk through is not a home inspection. In most cases the buyer will have a home inspection contingency that’s already been fulfilled as part of the contract. The final walk through shouldn’t be an appointment that takes a few hours like a home inspection but, it’s also not something that just takes a few minutes.

 

What Is A Walk Through?

A final walk through is the opportunity the buyer has to verify the property condition prior to going to settlement. Its purpose is to ensure that any agreed upon repairs have been made and that the property is in substantially the same condition as it was when the purchase agreement was made or at the home inspection depending on which the contract specifies.

 

What Should You Bring?

Bring a copy of your contract and the home inspection report. If any repairs were negotiated in the home inspection contingency removal addendum bring that as well. Having the contract to refer to will allow you to verify that all items that were agreed upon to convey are present in the house. If repairs had been agreed to having the addendum will allow you to verify they were completed. I recommend requesting repair receipts be provided as well, something your agent should have obtained from the sellers agent to provide to you. Your agent should also bring all of the above documents for you but, it’s best to be prepared in case they don’t.

 

Contract image

 

Bring A Checklist

This is quite possible the most important part of the final walk through. A great real estate agent will also bring a checklist. In Virginia we have a standard form to complete for our buyers and it’s something every agent should do. What should be checked? Here are several items that should be looked at during the final walk through.

 

Checklist

 

* Walk the exterior and look at the roof, siding, brick, stone, fence, patio, chimney or anything other exterior features the home may have. You want to make sure no damage has occurred.

* Check exterior and interior light fixtures. If one doesn’t appear to be working try replacing the bulb. A great agent will have a lightbulb on hand to test with. Verify the light fixtures are not only still in place but, are the same fixtures as when you made the offer.

* Look at the windows and doors to verify there’s no cracked or broken glass.

* Turn on the heat or air (depending on what season it is). This is something that I do when I first go into a home. If its heat turn it up a bit and if it’s AC down a bit to make sure you see a change in temperature while you conduct the rest of the walk through.

* Check any appliances that are included in the sale. If a dishwasher and washer are included they’re something I also turn on right when I arrive for a walk through. They can cycle while my buyers and I go through the rest of the house.

* Turn on the water at each faucet to ensure it’s working properly and check for leaking pipes under sinks and leaking bathtubs/showers. Also, check for hot water, that will indicate the water heater is functioning. Flush the toilets as well.

* Check to make sure the seller has left the home broom clean. The term broom clean can be interpreted in different ways. Storage areas should be cleaned out, there should be no garbage or personal belongings left behind. If there are items in the home that shouldn’t have been left they should be removed prior to closing. This, of course, doesn’t apply if the buyer and seller have mutually agreed on certain items remaining with the home.

* If there were items that were agreed upon to be repaired as part of the home inspection contingency removal check to make sure they have been done. Again, a good buyer’s agent will have obtained receipts from the listing agent in advance to provide to the buyer as documentation.

 

Why Is The Final Walk Through Important?

The final walk through isn’t a contingency in the contract but, it is the final step to in the home buying process before closing and not something that should be overlooked. If problems arise during the final walk through it’s important they are addressed quickly. If everything goes well it’s common for agents to have their client sign a walk through form acknowledging one was completed and that they’re satisfied.

5 Signs It May Be Time To Move From Your Current Home

5 Signs It May Be Time To Move From Your Current Home

Recent studies show that homeowners average about 9 years in their homes. There are varying reasons a homeowner decides it’s time to sell. Do you know the signs it may be time to move from your current home? It’s a very personal decision to sell your home and one that requires a lot of thought and consideration before making your final decision.

 

Keep reading for tips on whether it’s the right time for you to make a move.

 

1. Your Home No Longer Fits Your Lifestyle

Over time life has a way of changing. Maybe you were single when you purchased your home and now you have a family or maybe you bought a larger home and your children have left the nest.

 

There are many personal scenarios that can cause your life to change and with those changes your current home can become less desirable.

 

2. The Neighborhood You Live In No Longer Suits Your Needs

If you no longer find the neighborhood you live in desirable that could be a sign it’s time to move to a new one.

 

You might have purchased your home when you desired a downtown location and now want more privacy and quiet. Maybe the neighborhood has changed since you purchased your home and just isn’t appealing to you.

 

Whatever the case may be, if you no longer enjoy your neighborhood it might be time for a change.
 


3. You Know Homes In Your Neighborhood Have Been Selling For Appealing Prices

Seeing your neighbors home sell for a great price is exciting. It’s natural to start to think about if you could do the same thing.

 

Before you get too excited make sure you compare your neighbors home to your home. Are they similar in size, floor plan and condition? If they are then there is a good chance you could sell for a great price too. If they’re different then it’s not as easy to determine what your home will sell for.

 

If you’re still excited about the thought of selling reach out to an agent you trust and have them look at your home to determine what you could sell for. If your agent tells you it could also sell for a great price then you at least know you don’t have to guess on its market value. Selling your home is a business decision and doing your research is a must.

 

4. You Have Lived In Your Home At Least 5 Years

In general, you need to own a home for at least 5 years to sell without losing money. That’s not true in every case (less or more time) but, the general consensus is 5 years.

 

There are costs associated with selling and buying and you’ll need time to increase your equity and hopefully see your home appreciate.
 


5. It Makes Sense Financially

Did you just get a big promotion or a new higher paying job? Or, on the opposite spectrum do you feel like you’re house poor? Either of these can play into making the decision to sell your home.

Talk with your mortgage lender to see what you can best afford. If you don’t have one you trust 
reach out to your real estate agent or ask friends and family for referrals.

 

Is it time to sell? If you find yourself relating to any of the above it might be but, the truth is, only you can answer that. If you decide it’s time to sell partnering with a real estate agent who can help you analyze your current situation and listen to your selling goals is a must. Picking the right agent is one of the most important aspects of the entire home selling journey. Reach out to me at 703-431-3755 or amanda@amandadavidson.com
