Bristow House Shortages = A Sellers Market
 

Today (March, 25,2014) there are 57 active listing for sale in Bristow, Virginia with 36 properties being detached homes. The low numbers indicates that we continue to experience a shortage of inventory and you will find many subdivisions in Bristow without any homes for sale.  If you are looking to buy in Bristow and you have a particular place that you desire then it might be tough or impossible to find. If you are a seller then you should have no difficulty selling your home if you price it correctly.  Obviously you want to get the best price possible but you should not over price as this may hurt the chance to get the best price. Even in a sellers market an over priced home can turn off buyers from even looking at the home and may never look at a house they might fall in love with. Don't drive possible buyers away, price the home at a fair market price and let the market dictate what the sale price will be.
