Buyers

If Kingstowne and the surrounding area is your desired location be prepared for the current market conditions. Have a consultation with your agent prior to looking at homes to determine your must-haves vs. your would like to have. Understand your budget by getting fully pre-approved before heading out to tour homes.

The market is moving quickly and being prepared is your best asset. Not only will it save you stress and disappointment it will also put you in the best position possible to secure your future home.

When you find the one be ready to make a strong offer. Delaying even a day in the current market conditions can mean the property is already under contract. Multiple offers are still alive and well. Working with an agent who knows how to set your offer apart from the rest is important.

If you work with an experienced agent who understands the intricacies of the market you’ll find your home buying experience smooth and enjoyable. Have questions about buying? Contact me to learn more.

Inventory in Kingstowne

Inventory in Kingstowne is low – very very low. There is less than a one month supply of homes for sale in the area. It’s considered a seller’s market when there is up to a 3 month supply and we are well below that threshold. If you’re a buyer it’s important to understand there are very few homes for sale and homes are moving quickly. Multiple offer scenarios are very common and happening regularly. Be prepared to tour homes quickly and when you find a home you want to make an offer on put your best foot forward. You may not have a chance to make any changes if you’re competing with other offers so make it your best and final right from the start. The good news is rates are extremely low and purchasing now will ensure you can lock your rate in. Your interest rate is what impacts your monthly payment the most.
 


If you’re considering selling your home now is an excellent time. Although it’s a seller’s market that doesn’t remove the need to properly prepare your home for sale. Buyers are looking for homes that have a reasonable amount of updates (preferably turnkey ready) and providing them with the product they are seeking will deliver favorable results in the form of offers being made quickly and achieving top dollar for the sale of your home.

You can read more about the Kingstowne housing market in our October 2018 market update. Homes that have a reasonable amount of updates and that are priced according to the market are moving quickly. Sellers do need to understand that the market has changed from this spring when we were seeing 5, 6, 7+ offers on homes. That is no longer the case and if you try to chase the market your home is going to sit and be avoided by buyers. High days on the market and an inevitable price drop will cost you far more than pricing your home correctly from the start. It’s still a seller’s market but, buyers are looking for value in the form of homes that are priced according to the market. Pricing your home correctly and properly preparing it for sale will ensure a timely sale for the highest price possible.
 


If you’re looking to buy a condo in Kingstowne it’s important to know that inventory remains low. Homes that show well and are priced correctly are selling quickly. There’s still a strong chance that if a home that has just come on the market that matches those criteria that other buyers will also be interested. Do not delay in making an offer when you find the home you want to purchase. Consult with your agent on the best strategy to take. Every neighborhood and property is different and understanding the current market trends is important to position your offer to be appealing to the seller.

Rates are currently getting close to 5% and there are a lot of buyers in the market looking to secure their new home. If you’re a buyer in the current market you need to be prepared to make a strong offer when you find the home of your dreams. Days on the market remain low and homes are still moving very quickly in Kingstowne.
