April Showers Bring May Flowers - We all like this saying and it applies to this Spring Real Estate Market as well.  All the components of this month will produce next month.  For listing agents and sellers: Get those houses ready to sell - Clean them up and reduce clutter.  Contracts will flow in next month.  Buyers:  Contact your mortgage loan officer to become prequalified and see what you can afford - preparing you for writing a contract on the perfect home. Mortgage Loan Officers:  Get your program info and industry changes out there to make a more astute realtor and buyer.  Get your customers prequalified so that when houses do come on the market they are ready to buy.  Everyone is ready for an overdo successful Spring Housing market  As soon as the rain stops...smell the flowers!

It has been about 10 years since the last real estate boom in Northern Virginia.  I remember in 2005 when there were 7-8 contracts on every home which surfaced on the market.  Whew those were trying times!  But truth be told we thrived on the chaos and activity. 

Well I think we are due for the next cycle (most housing booms are about 10 years apart).  Rates are still very low and although financing has become more stringent in qualifying, there are still plenty of good programs out there for most people. 

So gear up folks - Sellers spruce up your houses and get them on the market for the Spring weather.  Realtors are available to help you with this process.  Don't go at it alone.  And Buyers get your finances in order and get prequalified so you are ready when your dream home comes on the market!
