The bad news this week is the mortgage rates bumped up a bit for the second week in a row.

The good news is that the luxury market has softened a bit and there are a lot of great properties at great prices. There are still plenty of new builds in the Tysons area and people are willing to pay a premium for brand new and customization.

Larger homes as young as just a few years are sitting as result. These homes have the same great location and large size, they just don’t have the latest and trendiest finishes.

If you preferred the darker kitchen cabinets to today’s all white or grey, it’s great news. If you like the newer finishes but don’t have the big budget, buying a 7 years young home gives you the opportunity to live in the neighborhood you want and you can always update later. Don’t forget, those white or grey cabinets are going to look very dated in another 10 years too.

This home was built in 2012 and is situated in a neighborhood that sees new build homes sell for over $2 million. It’s close to Tysons Corner, walking distance to Westwood Country Club and just 1 block from the W&OD Trail.

A great value in a great neighborhood:
