Route 1’s 2019 Real Estate Market
2019 started with a bang! Buyers were out in full force in the spring, creating a strong seller’s market. Things leveled off in the summer making it a better time for buyers. There was an active fall market with plenty of fresh listings and interested buyers. As expected, there were fewer transactions as the market wound down for the holidays.
Top Local Real Estate Trends of 2019
1. Appearances Matter
Homes that are properly prepared and priced correctly fly off the shelves! With the right appearance, your house will spend only about a week or two on the market, possibly after receiving multiple offers.
Since most buyers today start their search on-line, it is an absolute necessity to have great photos and that can only happen if your house is clean, in good shape and staged pleasantly. How can you make sure that your house will be one of these? Contact me today for a complimentary listing consultation.
2. Community Matters
Buyers looking for houses along the Route One corridor are determined to finds homes in our neighborhoods. Time and time again they are willing to forego size and work within the parameters of our older housing stock to gain a better quality of life.
Walkability, access to public transportation, reduced commute time, neighborhood events and a commitment to the arts and local, small businesses are just some of the reasons that our neighborhoods are so attractive.
3. Many Possibilities at Many Price Ranges
The best way to keep with your budget is to connect with an agent who really knows your search area and can help you zero in on a house that fits both your budget and your lifestyle. As a local realtor, resident and parent in these communities, I make it my business to do just that! But don’t just take my word for it – read these testimonials here to get a sense of what I can do to help you buy or sell a home!
In the meantime, if you’re trying to narrow down your search area, know that prices tend to be higher in University Park, Hyattsville (between Queens Chapel Road and Route One) and the Calvert Hills neighborhood. There are really great, lower price point options in Riverdale, Berwyn Heights, Greenbelt and the Hollywood neighborhood of College Park.
And as I shared in this post on Finding Age-Friendly Homes Along Route 1, ramblers, condos and townhouses are also great options for those looking to downsize.
