Ongoing Until January 1, 2023
It’s hard to believe it’s December already! It’s been another very busy year for those of us in the real estate market until late — and a roller coaster for interest rates.
Even though national headlines make the housing market seem like “doom and gloom”, our market is simply starting to trend back to the days of “seasonality” which was typical prior to 2020. In Alexandria (and the DMV) pre-pandemic, it was normal for many buyers to take a pause on their house hunt during the holiday season — and for most sellers to delay listing their home until the new year.
Listings in the City of Alexandria for the Last 7 Years
As the real estate market begins to turn toward pre-pandemic seasonality, we are excited to participate in some of the many holiday festivities our beloved Alexandria offers this time of year. We hope to see you at a few of them.
And as we look to 2023, we are excited to announce our popular, pre-pandemic Home Buying Workshop is back at Port City Brewing Company on January 16, 2023. This low-key, educational event is a great launch pad if you, or someone you know, is thinking about buying and/or selling in the new year. Complimentary beer (of course) and food is always provided. Contact us for more info!
Email us [email protected], call/text 703-298-0562 or visit The Seward Group website to sign up for the workshop or set up a one-on-one appointment with one of our local real estate experts. We would be happy to review the current real estate market in your Alexandria neighborhood and discuss how we can help you navigate your next move with ease.
The Seward Group wishes you and your family a wonderful holiday season and hoping you can enjoy some of the magical events.
