Jill has been a licensed real estate agent since 1984 and has grown-up in the Northern Virginia Area. She has seen the change in the real estate market and has weathered the up and downs. She now sees the market slowing down and prices remaining steady. For sellers it will be important to have fresh paint,floors in good condition, updated kitchen and baths. Purchasers will need to have their loan approved before writing a contract on a home and although there will be more homes on the market, the better homes will be few and far between. As always purchasers must know the market and once they see the home that fits their need they will be prepared to buy.
