But does the fact that a residence has recently been listed actually make it great? Of course not. But it’s about the law of averages. When homes languish on the market for months on end or even years, there’s a reason why. It could be the price, the condition, the location or some other unfavorable.  On the other end of the spectrum, the really fast sales happen for a reason as well. And so, browsing just listed properties simply gives the viewer an opportunity to evaluate listings for themselves—before someone swoops in and makes a bid.

Where does one look for brand-new listings? Just pick your favorite neighborhood—there’s bound to be some fresh action every day,  From the cobblestone streets of Old Town Alexandria to the downtown corridors of Washington DC and trendy neighborhoods like Clarendon, Courthouse and Ballston in Arlington, you’ll find urban condos, lofts and penthouses surrounded by shops, restaurants and nightlife.

Or head to the suburbs for a more leisurely pace of life with detached single-family homes for sale. Not all neighborhoods or residences sell at the same rate, of course. Those great old Craftsman cottages in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria tend to sell faster than multimillion dollar new-construction mansions located in Silver Springs, Maryland. That’s not to say that one place is better than another, but just that the laws of supply and demand come into play. The active stock of those antique Del Ray charmers is much sparser than all the new construction in counties like Montgomery and Prince George’s.

But even if you’re interested in an area where there’s a bumper crop of properties for sale, you still want to know what’s new to the market, wouldn’t you?

Fresh inventory also means new developments that may still be under construction and heading into the presale phase. From luxury flats to multistory townhouses, and even entire master-planned communities, these are situations where it’s helpful to have an informed real estate professional on your side. After all, most buyers don’t have the inside information or the time to thoroughly research all of the latest occurrences.

This is all part of the trade for real estate professionals who talk among themselves and share info about potential upcoming listings. From email blasts to home tours organized by and for local realtors, communal knowledge is a way to better serve clients. Agents also often begin their days by combing through all the “just listed” homes that pop up on MLS (the Multiple Listing Service) every morning.

But it’s not just realtors who are involved in the “just listed” statuses, or other parts of marketing strategies. Home sellers and buyers have become increasingly savvy, using evolving tools and technology to keep abreast of all the current trends. From smartphone apps to tablets, social media and text alerts, the public is ahead of the curve these days.

It is also worth noting that the Washington Metro region boasts an unusually varied collection of property types, styles and ages. Indeed, you can find neighborhoods that have a lot of uniformity and ones in which a centuries-old home will be located right next to a modern glass and steel tower.

And then there’s all the variables and diversity of the communities themselves. Are you wanting to live in relative seclusion or in the middle of all the action? Do you have to have a Whole Foods or a Trader Joe’s nearby or are you the type to dine out on a regular basis? Some people want to live within walking distance to a Metro Rail station and still others want to walk to work.

So whether you’re looking for a studio flat or an exclusive penthouse, a waterfront mansion or a midcentury modern home, the wherewithal to target new listings can make the difference between getting what you really truly want, or settling for second-best.
