You’ve heard this before from us, but it’s worth repeating: recession or not, this is an INCREDIBLE time to buy a home. Properties in Northern Virginia are listing (and selling) for 1/3 of the price they would have been going for 3 years ago. As recently as a few months ago, we were buying homes at 40% of their replacement value. Does any of this sound like the market bottoming out? Sure does to us.
Some more numbers, and a bold claim
On the sales side of our operation, we continue to unload homes 3 times faster than the market average. Want some real numbers? The last 3 homes we sold lasted 27, 7 and 0 days on the market, respectively (that “0” is not a typo; we actually sold the home before it even made it to listing). As the country’s largest home buying firm and the 8th best selling team in the Keller Williams organization nationwide, we are your go-to source for the best real estate deals in the DC Metro area, a region that includes Maryland and Northern Virginia. Because we work closely with the FDIC, Fannie Mae, Countrywide, Wells Fargo, Indy Mac and many others, we ensure that our level of access to foreclosed homes and REO’s is second to none. You can view our up-to-date inventory at www.expresshomebuyers.com/email and www.ExpressRs.com. We’ve said it before in this blog, but here it is again: now is the best time to buy a home in the next 30 years. If you’d like to hear more about why we this, or if you’re interested in either seeing the homes we have available or selling one of your own, don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
