Arlington, Va. June 2016 Real Estate Statistics

arlington stats jpg

Here are the real estate statistics for Arlington, Va for June 2016. Note that these statistics are taken from MLS sales and will not include for sale by owner sales or person to person transactions.

Takeaways:

Total volume is down year over year. If we look a little deeper into those numbers we’ll see that the price of detached homes is up, while the number of sold homes is down. Inventory is also down year over year so this tells us that sellers are getting more for their homes during a time of reduced inventory. The reduced inventory of detached homes is keeping the total sold volume down more then the prices.

The same cannot be said for attached homes (townhomes and condos). While the # of detached units sold went up, the prices came down almost 10%.  This is a signal to buyers that now might be a time where you can negotiate a bit on that condo if the unit is priced at or above recent market. Sellers should also be cognizant of this trend when pricing their home. If you are looking for a quick sale, consider pricing your home at or just below market.

Statistics are available for other Northern Virginia counties as well as Washington, DC. If you are interested in these numbers send me an email at janejensen@comcast.net or call 571-228-5656 and I will get you the stats.

Arlington, Va Real Estate Statistics for February 2016

The real estate statistics are in. February is often a slow month and this is reflected in the sales volume. Year over year volume was down a little over 10% to $80.8M from $90.2M. The average sold price crept up just slightly from $601,964 to $607,690. Not enough volume or price change to reflect a significant trend. Units sold dropped to 133 from 150 and average days on market went from 63 to 74. Attached homes sold price went from $920,279 to $874,541 a drop of almost 5% and attached average sold price went  from $465,975 to $496,975 up 6.75%.

As a seller if you are going to take anything away from these #sFebruarystatistics you might think that you should consider listing your detached home at recent comps and if you’ve got a condo you may be looking at a little bit more if prices keep going up.

There is not enough volume in February to make any real trend predictions though so we’ll have to keep a lookout for March statistics to see where the spring market is heading.

Free Peeps at the Westover Farmers Market in Arlington

 

WFM newsletter ad image

Many of you know that I am one of the original sponsors for our local Westover Farmer Market in Arlington, Va., and this is my third year as a sponsor. The market is a great service to the community and I am proud to be associated with it. All of the vendors come from within a 125 mile radius so when they say the produce is fresh and local…they mean it. It’s located at the intersection of Mckinley and Washington Blvd.

It’s a slow day with the cold weather but stop by and see some of great vendors including bakeries, produce and Number One Son’s pickled products (you must try the Kim Chee…seriously, it’s my favorite…just don’t breathe on anyone afterwards. The garlic is intense, yum).

Please stop by the Sponsors booth where you can pick up a package of free Peeps courtesy of me!  The man in the photo is Robert Swenson who is the markets Marketing Manager and the two ladies are volunteers and from Yorktown High. Stop by and say hello and thank them for manning the booth on this cold spring morning. Happy Peep-ing.

Coming Soon: Arlington Bungalow near Clarendon

Love Craftsman style homes? I do.  Large windows, beautiful molding?  Me too. If you’re like me you’re going to love this classic Arlington, Va. home originally built in 1922. Long time owners raised their family here.  It’s being freshly painted, highlighting all that beautiful 1922 molding.  This home has been updated but all the things you love about the classic bungalow are there. Welcoming front porch, large living room with wood burning fireplace, spacious dining room with gorgeous windows. 5+ bedrooms. The 3 upstairs bedrooms include a master with large sitting room (maybe a future luxury bath or walk in closet?). 2 bedrooms plus a full bath on the main level. Lower level has a family room, a room used as a bedroom and a kitchenette (sink and refrigerator).

All of this and the home sits on a 15,777 square ft flat lot. If you don’t know how big this is you haven’t been looking at Arlington, Va real estate for long. In a neighborhood of 5000-10,000 sq. ft lots, this is an incredible find. Imagine what you could do with that.

All of this within .7miles of the Clarendon metro and all of the shopping, restaurants and other activities that the area has to offer.

The home will be coming on the market the first week of March. It will be priced between $1.2M-$1.3M.  Be on the look out…or call me to see 571-228-5656. janejensen@comcast.net. Your Arlington, Va real estate specialist.
