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.
