Lovettsville Real Estate NewsThe Citizen

Have you ever wondered whether or not summer time is a good time to sell your home?10 Stocks Street

As a season it can be a bit more hit or miss in terms of active buyers, as vacations and travel tend to provide a big distraction from the home buying process. For those who want to be in their new home by the new school year (August 29th is the first day for Loudoun County Public Schools), time is of the essence if they want to make that a reality.

The average settlement time from contract to close is 30-45 days. That means the buyer would need to secure a contract on their preferred property no later than July 29th. For buyers who are serious about this move schedule, now is the time to focus on finding the right property.

If you are a seller thinking about a late summer/early fall move, now is the time. Currently there are 53 properties active on the market in the 20180 zip code.
