As expected, it was another great year for sellers across the New River Valley.  Although most segments of our market saw a rise in the number of homes sold, the days on market continued to decrease due to high buyer demand.  A decline in interest rates contributed to this sustained demand and affordability rose for many buyers.

A competitive Blacksburg market led to a year over year increase in average sales price of $24,500, an 8.5% increase. The number of units sold increased by 11.6%. Christiansburg saw its own growth with an increase of units sold of 5.6% and average sales price increase of 3%. The City of Radford had a significant inventory issue this past year. The number of units sold decreased by 30% from 2018. As a result, the average sales price increased by 14%. The surrounding NRV market stayed consistent with a slight increase in number of units sold and 5.3% increase in average sold price.

According to industry experts, another year of low inventory lies ahead of us. We expect to see continued rising prices and a competitive market for buyers. If you have been considering selling your home, it is a great time to maximize your proceeds. Strategically planning your transition to a new property will be one of the more important factors in this decision process.
