Put a Spring in Your Step: Alexandria Homes on the Market

Spring tulipsTomorrow marks the official first day of Spring in Alexandria, Virginia.  Well, actually it's the first day of Spring everywhere in the Northern Hemisphere, but for purposes of this blog, we're only concerned with Northern Virginia and Washington D.C.


The next four months are typically the busiest real estate selling season in the entire year.  It's a good time to focus in and take a look at the available inventory in various price ranges.  Many more homes will likely be coming on the market in the next few weeks as the Spring market (and hopefully the weather) heats up.



As more properties come on the market, you'll likely see prices reduced on homes that have been on the market throughout the Wintertime as sellers become more anxious to get a deal.  Coupled with this week's interest rate reductions by the Fed, the environment has become very favorable for Northern Virginia homebuyers. 




Here's a look at currently available inventory of homes in Alexandria as of March 19th, the eve of Spring:

Goodness, you certainly put a lot of work in this Brian. I'm impressed. 

Of course, you know you will get a call for a condo in Alexandria for less than $100,000.
