Buyers in today’s market are informed about inventory levels and current homes available for sale. They monitor current interest rates and resist homes that are overpriced which in turn causes them to sit on the market and become stale inventory. Making the best first impression when listing your home is critical to a successful sale.

Homes in Alexandria that are selling the quickest have several characteristics in common: they are well maintained, reasonably updated, clean and uncluttered, and they are priced according to the current market. As a seller if you meet these conditions your home will not only stand out from the competition it will also have the best opportunity of going from listed to sold ahead of the competition too.
