[Riverside Estates - $782,000]   SOLD!

Here are several reasons properties in Alexandria will sometimes have no buyers:
  • Decor -- Neutral decor doesn't excite anyone, but flashy decor can distract home buyers.
  • Location -- Every location has a buyer, but here and there it takes a while to find THAT buyer
  • Photos -- If your listing has yet to sell, you may want to revisit the photos you’re using to present it on the MLS.
  • Parking -- A difficult driveway or a detached home without good parking can be slow to sell.
These are problems we've seen before and challenges we know how to overcome. Are you deliberating the possibility of selling your home in Riverside Estates? If so, it's smart to investigate what detached homes have sold for in the local place. Those detached homes can give a homeowner an idea of the list price for your 4-bedroom 2-baths place of residence.
