20 April 2018
Time for prospective buyers to create some activity.  There are homes available; buyers and the ones to create change.
For prospective buyers of any home, think “outside the box” and find a home you really like; don’t restrict yourself to what an agent tells you about pricing. You’ll never know if the home could fit your budget unless you really engage in direct negotiations with the seller. You might be surprised at the results when you consider all aspects of pricing; there are many ways to arrive at the result you want–your new home.
16 April 2018

A new list is available for download.
12 April 2018 Update
Another home back on the MLS (Balmolral at 5328 Treasure View).  Another seller looses potential sales days when a risky agreement apparently fails.  Sellers can take control to avoid potential lost selling days by keeping the home activity on the list while waiting to see if a sale agreement fails. Sellers can add a right of first refusal waiver to the sales agreement.
Update, 11 April 2018
Another home back on the market after an apparent sale agreement failure (Colchester at 5922 Candle Glow Place).  Sellers can take control to avoid potential lost selling days by keeping the home activity on the list while waiting to see if a sale agreement fails.  Sellers can add a right of first refusal waiver to the sales agreement.  It’s a great seller negotiating tool.
Activity Update, 8 April 2018
Not a lot of low priced home. For the week 1 home added to the MLS (custom York at 5849 Celebration Way) and 1 price reduction (Vanda I at 6104 Hunters Ridge). 
Activity Update, 27 March 2018
11 current MLS-listed homes in Legacyl of Leesburg. The lowest priced home is now a Carlisle model at $214,900. A Balmoral which was listed on 19 March is now off-list.
Activity update, 25 March 2018
Mixed activity this week with trends uncertain: 2 new listings ( Langley II at 5301 Butterfly Ct and Balmoral at 5328 Treasure View), 1 re-list as if previous deal fell through after 6 weeks (St Andrews at 27213 Jade Isle Ct) (This shows the risk to seller when seller accepts contingencies; sellers would be better off to keep a home listed while pending in jeopardy), another rel-list but then a new deal after a couple days (Balmoral at 5312 Treasure View), and new listing with quick off-list (Carlisle at 6101 Hunter’s Ridge Ave.)  Get the new Legacy SalesList.

This makes our own Fantasy Way home at the low end of all homes available.
