Fall has arrived! There's a cool crispness to the air, American Football season is in full swing, and every coffee shop is doling out pumpkin spiced beverages and desserts to warm up with.
Even though we can't engage in all things Fall due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Fine Nest is here to bring you the most recent Real Estate news updates, COVID-19 updates, and other resources we think you'll find useful to help get you and your family through the pandemic as well as the holiday season.
The Latest News
October Market Metrics Report
As we mentioned last month, the Fall/Winter Real Estate Market is still holding out unseasonably strong. We are still in a Sellers Market, which has meant that most listings are getting offers in 3-5 days. High buyer demand has also resulted in many buyers waiving everything such as home inspection, radon testing, appraisals, and more, in order to get their offers to be accepted. While areas such as Manassas, Centreville and Sterling tend to not be as competitive, we've still seen high competitiveness in Arlington, Fairfax Station, and Vienna.
Fine Nest still encourages home owners looking to sell their homes to take advantage of this competitive market, and get the best value on their homes. Buyers are still encouraged to take advantage of the low interest rates.

Common Household Spiders Awareness
In the spirit of Halloween, Fine Nest is featuring this informational flyer focusing on common household spiders that love to appear during the Fall months.
While spiders still remain a commonly unwelcome household guest, they are actually incredibly helpful in keeping homes free from other unwanted pests like roaches, ants, flies, beetles, house centipedes, and many more.
So the next time you see a spider seeking warm recluse in your home, first, make sure it's not venomous. Then, rather than squishing the spider with your shoe, pick up a cup and paper instead and release your eight legged pest control buddy outside...
