Real Estate in Virginia largely depends on a historical theme. With many buyers looking to find that perfect home that not only meets all of their modern necessities such as updated electricity, plumbing, and water supply, there is also a large demand on finding a home that tells a story. Maybe you are lucky enough to own a house or land that dates back to the Civil War Era. Or possibly even further back to when the English settlers came to America.
If you can attach a tale from the past to your real estate, then you are sitting on a gold mine. With patriotism on the rise since 9-11, people are looking more into their roots and delving into the past to find out more about our great nation. Many are looking to relocate to places like Virginia to feel they are a part of it all. It is these people who are looking for your historical luxury real estate and you are the one who has to decide how to sell it, and that’s with history itself.
Virginia isn’t only known for its history, although it definitely plays a big part. Virginia is also a very political state which houses the Pentagon, the largest office building in the world. Also, in Virginia, more people work for the United States Government than any other industry, which is about one-fourth of Virginia’s workers. So if a buyer is working in D.C. or the Pentagon, they may be in the market for something a little more updated and not as concerned about buying a historical home.
In this market, if you are selling a luxury home to a high profile public official, the main concern may be security, meaning what type of neighborhood the house is in and also commute time, not wanting to drive a lot of miles to get to work and back. When you advertise your modern home, be sure and mention these factors, first secure neighborhood and next how long it will take them to travel to work. If you have a prospective buyer, you may be dealing with a one-income home, with Mom choosing to stay home with the children. Does your home have easy access to good schools and shopping areas? And once again, is it a safe neighborhood?
Whether you are looking to sell your luxury historical home with all of its magical tales, or want to get rid of a luxury home you are currently living in, the bottom line is that you need to appeal to the buyer on a very personal level to find out exactly what they are looking for, If you can pinpoint that, you are well on your way to selling luxury real estate in Virginia.
