Multiple Offers Are UP!

How does that old saying go . . .?

Ah yes – “The more things change, the more they remain the same.”

Well – that applies to real estate in Oakton and Vienna this week. While the leaves are changing and we move full on into Fall, the market remains almost exactly the same as last week. Homes are still selling, inventory is low and we are in a Seller’s Market in both Vienna and Oakton.

You might also be surprised to know that this is the case in MANY markets around the country. In fact, in a recent study done by Keller Williams Realty International, Realtors around the country report that “multiple offers” are up by 67% this year over last year! So if you are thinking about selling – NOW IS THE TIME!

Here’s the update for Vienna & Oakton this week:

  • Housing inventory is identical to last week – with 168 homes on the market in Vienna and 76 homes on the market in Oakton.
  • Oakton had 6 homes go under contract last week – half of those sold in less than two weeks! The highest price listing to go under contract was a home in Oak Marr Courts listed at $625,000. And the lowest price listing to go under contract was a condo at Appalachian Square listed at $219,500.
  • Vienna had 18 homes go under contract last week – 44% of those sold in less than two weeks! The highest price listing to go under contract was a home in Spring Lake listed at $996,000. And the lowest price listing to go under contract was a condo at MNosby’s Landing listed at $224,999.
  • Vienna has just over 2 months of housing inventory. And Oakton has right around 3 months. Both numbers put these markets into Seller’s markets.
