Countdown to the Spring 2021 Real Estate Market Has Begun!

Over the past few years, the Spring Real Estate Market in Loudoun County has begun earlier and earlier. The latest economic and housing data suggests that the 2021 Spring Real Estate Market will be more competitive than ever. The latest report from the Dulles Area Association of Realtors shows just 472 active listings in Loudoun County -- down more than 50% from 2019. There's enormous demand, and limited supply. That's why home prices were up as much as 8% Year-Over-Year in 2021.

With the stock market in record territory, the Presidential election behind us, and the prospect of a vaccine for COVID-19, all signs are pointing to an incredible opportunity for sellers.

When Exactly Will the 2021 Spring Market Begin?

My husband and I used to take a winter vacation to the beach every year in January or the first week of February. For the last 5 years, vacation has been cancelled and my phone starts ringing off the hook in the week between Christmas and New Years. At the latest, the week of January 4th, 2021 we'll get started in earnest.

Thinking About Selling? There's Lots to Do, Let's Get Started!

Whether you're committed to selling in Spring 2021, or just thinking about it, there's a lot we can do now to get ready.

Pricing & Competitive Market Analysis

Let's begin the work of pricing your home, which starts with a free Competitive Market Analysis. We'll look at the most recent comparable sales in your neighborhood and determine a go-to-market price based on your goals and timeline.

Net Sheet & Planning

Figuring out how much you're likely to net from the sale of your home in 2021 will help you plan for your next move. I'll provide detailed estimates.

Tidying Up & Repairs

Even with Christmas right around the corner, there's plenty that you can do to tidy up, de-personalize and address any known problems with your home. I can help you decide which projects to prioritize.

Photography & Drone Shoot

Now is still a great time to capture pictures of your home, even the exterior. As of December 3rd, we still have mostly green lawns that will make for better listing photos than a snow covered landscape.
