Yes, real estate is considered essential and we are open for business!
Market conditions as of May 2020:
During the COVID-19 lockdown, The Casey Samson Team has launched 15 homes and 14 of them have gone under contract or have sold in an average of fewer than 10 days.
Although the virus has not had an effect on selling homes, it has held down the inventory because many sellers want to wait until June or July. Inventory of May listings is down 50% from last year at this time. This has been a good opportunity for sellers to take advantage of shorter selling periods, while still generating multiple contracts. The CST safety protocol, and hands-free showings, make for the safest environment possible.
Why is now still a good time to buy? Serious buyers are out searching and winning contracts where multiple offers may have held them up in the past. Our team would love to help you in your search for a home.
- 32 of our 35 listings are under contract or sold.
- Our 2020 listings sold in an average of 10 days.
- Among these 35 homes we have seen 41 contracts on one home and $100K and $50K above appraised value on two separate homes.
How do we relaunch back into the current market? Our team believes there will be an avalanche of houses hitting the market later this spring, early summer. If your home is ready now, your home could stand out in this low inventory season. Where can you start? Set up a Zoom call with Casey and discuss the current market and possibly listing your home. We are here to help!
Thinking of moving up to your forever home? This is a great time to sell your current home and buy your dream home. We are taking virtual meetings via Zoom, let us know if you would like a pricing strategy and marketing plan today! Reach Casey directly at 703-508-2535 for a home buyer or seller consultation.
