Here are a couple of reasons detached homes in Arlington, Virginia will sometimes have no traffic:
Parking -- A difficult driveway or a place of residence without good parking can be slow to sell.
Photos -- If your listing has yet to sell, you may want to revisit the photos you’re using to present it on the MLS.
Odor -- The majority of detached homes have an odor that the owner doesn't even know aware of.
First Impression -- Let's face it: a number of detached homes are not attractive when you first gaze upon them.
