If you’ve been waiting to buy because the market is just too hot, now is a good time to put your toes in the water.
The market has softened just a bit and inventory has increased. This week saw 241 new homes come on the market in the Tysons area (McLean, Vienna, Falls Church, Great Falls). Inventory in Fairfax County is up almost 50% from this time last year. It’s still a seller’s market but it’s a bit friendlier to buyers going into May than it was going into April.
I’m often asked about new builds in the Town of Vienna. Vienna is a great place to live. It’s walkable to many shops and restaurants and features family activities throughout the year. The new build homes are becoming quite expensive though.
