This is a question we get a lot from home buyers just like you who have been thinking, contemplating, saving and dreaming of buying a home.
You all have the desire but hesitate.
Saying no...not now.
I have learned over the years you may not be saying NO. You are thinking to yourself. I don't KNOW.
- I don't know enough
- I don't want to buy to high
- I'm not sure if prices are going up or down.
- I don't want to make a mistake
- I don't know who we can trust.
With that in mind, I want to take you behind the scenes today and show you what a REALTOR can see
Below are two charts that will update accordingly month to month to help you gauge when is the best time to buy. For those of you who are waiting to time the market. This is invaluable information.
The chart below represents how many months it will take a seller to sell a home in the 22192 zip code area. Pay close attention to the price brackets. These figures are based on the number of homes that are For Sale. The higher the inventory levels the longer it takes to sell. It's all based on supply and demand.
Now the chart below shows us the ACTIVE LISTINGS in the 22192 Zip Code Area. ( this chart updates automatically )
Always remember as inventory increases sellers homes may linger on the market longer.
The longer a home lingers on the market the more sellers may be willing to entertain your offer ( your terms) but don't get too comfortable.
