Home buyers and sellers can drive one another up the wall
“It’s surprising when sellers insist that buyers can come in only during limited hours or respond negatively to requests to visit a property,” says Jami Harich, an agent with Avery Hess Realtors in Fredericksburg, Va. “They’ll say it isn’t a good time. But when your buyer wants to see multiple properties, they sometimes just skip the one that isn’t easy to see.”
Optimism reigns for D.C. area’s spring housing market

Shoppers looking for mid-priced condos, townhouses feel a squeeze
“The most sales in Northern Virginia for condos and townhouses in 2014, especially condos, were in the under-$400,000 price range.” – Nina Chen Landes, Avery-Hess, Realtors®

Get the Skinny on Baby Boomer Clients
“Many Baby Boomers are focused on living near their children and grandchildren and having a lifestyle that allows them to do what they want when they want,” says Mary Misleh, Avery-Hess, Realtors®. “They’re not as concerned with commuter services and travel time to work the way non-Baby Boomers are.”
