Yesterday I was crossing my front yard with a camera in hand to go photograph our newest listing in Westridge Subdivision. A car pulled over and the woman rolled down her window and asked is that house coming on the market? I said it sure is. She looked puzzled and asked " why in the world would someone put their home on the market heading into the holidays and winter?"
I smiled and explained many people need to buy and sell homes regardless of the time of year. She looked at me with a puzzled look. I explained that actually in our current market conditions here in Eastern Prince William County Virginia, it may be the perfect time for homeowners to consider listing their home for sale.
For example. I pointed to the home in question. I explained that currently there are less than a dozen homes for purchasers to choose from in the Lake Ridge Virginia and surrounding area's when looking for a move-up home under six hundred thousand dollars. Inventory is very low right now in the Woodbridge Virginia area. With interest rates so low, and the home prices correcting. Many homeowners who have been thinking about purchasing a move-up home have watched home prices rise and are fearful that the historiacall low rates will soon be gone and they might be priced out of the market.

When Selling Your Home Keep in mind there is something I call The Winter Advantage.
The Winter Advantage is simply this. As fair weather sellers take their homes off the market for the fall and winter holidays. Who say, we'll come back on the market next spring means. Inventory dwindles.
- This means less competition for you the homeowner who needs to sell.
- Better terms ( chances are closing costs will be less or buyers may allow for a short rent back)
- Chances are you will get your price...when you price it at Fair Market Conditions.
- You may even expereince a multiple offer situaiton and be able to choose which offer is best for you.
