The real estate market can be volatile but it helps to use market trends as a guide to your next move. If you’re looking to sell, for instance, it is always a good idea to check local real estate market forecasts for indications as to when the right time to sell would be. Loudon County residents should also take note of the following:
Homes sales, a driving factor in Loudoun County’s expanding economy, showed signs of a strong recovery as a late-breaking spring season brought out buyers for a large inventory of townhomes and single-family residences throughout the county.
Realtors were reporting brisk sales last weekend, and in some cases multiple bids, for homes in popular neighborhoods and subdivisions in Sterling and Ashburn, from Lowes Island west to Leesburg. Though statistics won’t be available for several weeks, the sales reports suggest that the county is coming out of a sluggish market that began with the government shutdown last year and chilled with cold weather throughout the first quarter of 2014.
While the local housing market is already starting to look bright, it would take some time for things to get back in full swing. But this downtime is no excuse for inaction. Instead, take it as an opportunity to ensure that your property is sale-ready when the time comes for it to be listed. You can invest in a number of home improvements, but even a simple Ashburn roof repair job will go a long way toward increasing your property’s resale value.
