Is the Real Estate Market in The Village Slowing?

Does the recent listing and sale at 640 The Village #105 indicate that the market may be slowing….or was it just a victim of circumstances and timing.  This was a one bedroom, first floor unit without much of a view but it sold considerably below any sale in 2018.  The home sold at $579,000 after considerable time on the market.  The condo was originally listed on October 19th, and went into escrow after 2 full months on December 20th.  While the time of year didn’t help it may definitely be more than just timing.  Again the home was in clean condition although the kitchen needed some updating and upgrading as well as the bathroom.  Having said that it was still very surprising to see it sit that long and sell at that price.  The previous 5 sales (since September) are below and the lowest priced one bedroom (other than 640 #105) sold at $640,000.  Only time will tell if the market is cooling or whether it’s just temporary like the weather.

What a Difference Home Staging Can Make

We recently sold a studio condo in the Village at 610 The Village #202. We had multiple offers and sold at full price despite the conventional wisdom thinking it would sell at a lower number. One of the things that we offer, and feel makes a TREMENDOUS difference, is home staging. With almost all home buyers starting their search online it’s critical for the photographs and presentation to compel buyers to actually come and look at the home. Home staging can make the same space look larger, brighter, more updated and more inviting.  Contact us to find out the value of your condo in The Village or Seascape and let us show you just how much more we offer….at the same cost as other realtors.

Before and after staging

This is a service we offer our clients at no cost.  We simply believe in marketing every home like a luxury home.  We do more than other realtors including partial staging, professional photography, drone video and photos, custome websites and more.
