Real Estate Market Statistics for Arlington, Va December 2017

 

mktstatsdec2017

Here’s your December real estate market statistics for Arlington County, Va. There is really no bad news in here for Arlington sellers. Total sold volume is up year over year even though total units sold is exactly the same. Average sold price is up 1.32% year over year. Average days on market for Arlington is up, but that is likely a reflection of the number of $1M + homes on the market. These take longer to sell. If you are thinking of selling, note that a big driver for the increase in home prices is the 12% drop in active listings, year over year. It is not hard to figure out that inventory is low, low, low. Buyers are very active now. With interest rates creeping up, buyers are ready to lock in their lower interest rates. Note that there were 29 cash deals but the vast majority of closed transactions entailed some type of financing. If you are thinking about selling and would like more information on your specific zip code and neighborhood please email me at janejensen@comcast.net or call 571-228-5656. I’m happy to get that information to you. It’s a great time to be a home seller in Arlington.

This stately colonial located at 2321 N. Quantico St in N. Arlington just sold! Located just blocks to the EFC metro this 4 bed/3.5 bath home sold for $955,000.

Setting the right price on a property takes a great deal of evaluation. Factors include easily quantifiable variables like square footage and updates. Where experience will often tell is in less quantifiable factors such as home layout, schools, metro access, proximity to main streets and commuting routes. These things can be positive or negative and can change over time. It’s important to work with a realtor who stays on top of the market and understands these factors when you are pricing your home.

Arlington, Va. A great place to live and work.

Press release from the County:

Arlington Celebrates Winning Year of Attracting, Retaining Businesses

  • 53 deals in FY 2016 adding or keeping businesses in County
  • More than 4,200 jobs
  • Almost 2 million square feet of office space

Arlington businesses grew over the past fiscal year, with the County showing strong results in attracting and retaining companies.

Arlington Economic Development reports that its new marketing efforts and strategically targeted resources netted 53 new business or business retention deals in Fiscal Year 2016. Those deals represent nearly 2 million square feet of office space and the creation or retention of more than 4,200 jobs. In Fiscal Year 2015, the County closed 35 such deals, representing nearly 1.2 million square feet of office space.

County Manager Mark Schwartz, who has made economic development his top priority, calls the new numbers “an encouraging sign that our ‘all-hands-on-deck’ effort is working to fill office vacancies with vibrant businesses that are coming to or staying in the County. There’s more work to do but we’re clearly making progress.”

Schwartz also thanked the County Board for its commitment, through additional budget resources, to keeping and adding Arlington businesses.

New and expanding companies

Grant Thornton, Amazon Innovation Center and George Washington Medical Faculty Associates are among the larger employers attracted to large office spaces in Arlington. Some of the new, fast-growing technology firms putting roots down in the County are Shift, Phone2Action and Basket.

Businesses that have expanded in Arlington include Bytecubed and Snagajob.

“This year’s success in business investment is very telling in terms of the kinds of businesses that have chosen Arlington as their home,” AED Director Victor Hoskins said. “It’s truly representative of Arlington’s shift into a technology and professional services hub.”

The successes are all part of Arlington’s “Way Forward” strategy of focusing on working with regional partners, proactive marketing, providing strategic incentives and offering key infrastructure improvements to prospective businesses. That approach is setting Arlington apart from other regions in terms of providing its business community with the resources and tools it needs to grow for the future.

AED provides visionary leadership and superior services to Arlington’s business and arts community, its tourism industry and its real estate development.

This week AED was recognized with a Virginia Association of Counties (VACo) Achievement Award for its innovative Startup Arlington competition. The contest challenges tech companies to make their pitch for 3-months of free office and living space, plus legal advice and mentoring, in the County. The winning business, Montana-based Oppleo, a cyber security firm, relocated to Arlington last November and is still in the area.
