Priced Right and Under Contract in Just 6 Days in Springfield, Virginia!

Who says the market is sluggish?  The first time homebuyer tax credit may have ended, but first-time buyers are still buying in Northern Virginia.  Especially in certain price ranges -- like $250K-$350K -- that's a sweet spot.

Case in point:  This past Saturday, I listed for sale a great townhouse in Newington Station, a community in Springfield, Virginia, close to the VRE, I-95, and the new, huge National Geospatial Intelligence Agency headquarters building under construction.  Here's some info on the listing: A Stylish, Warm, Elegant Townhouse: 8353 Moline Place, Springfield, VA for Sale

Priced right -- $307,000, we ratified a contract today.  Two agents showed the house to their clients and whammo!

We didn't even have time to place these gorgeously designed brochures in the home.  Under contract in just 6 days!

Are you looking for the same results?

Brian--congratulations, and you're so right.  I just posted a blog about the "healthy signs of recovery" in the DC area that were discussed on the Kojo Nnamdi Show yesterday (listen to a recording here).  They would certainly agree with you!

Brian.. yea, I saw you post that on FB, but didn't get to it... glad your market is doing well. Not all markets are selling quickly or even at a decent pase.  Sounds like you are doing a great job.
