Reality Check March US Home Resales Slow Amid Tight Inventory Image

When it comes to selling your property, timing is of the essence. You need to do it at the right time, because you’ll naturally want to part with your property for only the best price possible. The key is to sell under the right conditions—when all the cards are in your favor. This isn’t an exact science, but keeping abreast of market conditions should help. After all, what homeowner wouldn’t want to get the most out of the sale? Here’s an update for the Washington metro area and nearby suburbs:

A brutal winter may be limping to a close for much of the U.S., but spring has not yet brought its usual kick to the existing-home sales market. According to real estate agents around the country, there just is not that much to sell.

“We have an unprecedented lack of product,” said Bonnie Roberts-Burke, an agent with Evers & Co., in Washington, D.C., who handles residential property sales in the city and nearby Maryland and Virginia suburbs.

“Anything that is updated and in pristine shape will sell with multiple offers.”

Given the shortage of properties for sale in the region this spring, getting your home listed now sounds like a very good idea. That alone should give you an advantage, but savvy homeowners know that you can improve your chances of closing a sale at a more attractive price point if you make sure your property is in excellent condition.
