Buyer’s Market or Seller’s Market? Less Than Two Months Housing Supply in Vienna & Oakton

“Are we in a Buyer’s Market or a Seller’s Market in Vienna and Oakton?”

Is Northern Va Buyers Market Or Sellers Market

This is a question we still often get asked. Well, the Northern VA real estate market remains brisk and the Vienna Oakton area is no different. Here’s what’s happening:

  • In the past 30 days in Oakton, more homes have gone under contract than new listings have come on the market – 52 new listings and 55 contracts!
  • Vienna is right behind Oakton in pace – with 137 new listings and 125 contracts in the last 30 days.
  • Vienna inventory is at its highest this year – with 126 homes on the market. Oakton inventory is also at a 2013 high with 60 homes on the market. That being said, there is still less than 2 months housing inventory in both markets. And that means it’s still a SELLER’S MARKET.
  • Market priced homes in good condition and good locations are still being snapped up. Average days on market for homes that went under contract this past week was 19 days. 63% of those homes sold in a week or less! (Note that this is just the average across all price ranges. Lower price ranges often move faster.)

Here are the rest of this week’s statistics:

What Do Vienna & Oakton Homebuyers Have In Common With Paper Towels?

Vienna & Oakton homebuyers have a lot in common with paper towels, at least they do with Bounty brand paper towels.

Remember the old TV commercials? They called Bounty the “quicker picker upper”!

Well – the way Vienna & Oakton’s housing market is moving, it looks like homebuyers are definitely “quicker picker uppers”. In the past 30 days, homes went under contract at the fastest pace we’ve seen this year.

Statistics show we are almost to the point where for every home listed, a home goes under contract!

(Note: In a “Balanced Market, there is normally about 6 months of housing inventory. Current supply in Vienna and Oakton is 1.1 and 1.3 months respectively!)

  • In Vienna in the past 30 days, there were 114 new listings – and 105 homes went under contract.
  • In Oakton in the past 30 days, there were 51 new listings – and 45 homes went under contract.

Don’t get left behind in the rush of today’s market. When the river is moving along this fast, whether you are a Buyer or a Seller, you need a good captain to navigate the waters. Many homes are selling before they hit the market. It’s not unusual for us to get a call from a buyer asking about a certain listing, only for us to have to tell them that it’s been under contract for days. And Sellers can also benefit from having top notch negotiators leveraging their possibilities to the hilt.

No matter why you’re moving, The Belt Team can help you make the BEST move. If you’re thinking of buying or selling a home, Contact The Belt Team at (703) 242-3975. We think you deserve the BEST Realtors in Northern Virginia!

What Does A Shift In The Market Mean For Home Buyers?

In Northern VA, the housing market has shifted into a strong Seller’s market; so what does this mean for Buyers? Watch this 2 minute video to find out:

 

The one thing we would point out that is slightly different than what you saw in the video, is that The Belt Team recommends that buyers get pre-APRROVED, not just pre-qualified. In order to compete in today’s market, Buyers need to be fully approved for their mortgage and have a full approval letter from their lender BEFORE they write a contract.
