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 Real Estate Market Statistics for August 2016

Below are the most recent available monthly real estate statistics for Arlington County. In general year of year numbers are positive. Inventory continues to fall short of last years numbers. This along with continuing low interest rates is bolstering the average sold price. Higher priced Arlington homes are also contributing to higher total volume. 66 homes (64 detached and 2 attached) with 4 or more bedrooms closed in August. This is up from the 55 in the same period last year. The average sale price for the detached homes was $1,088,396, up almost 3% from last year. The softest spot seems to be in the lower end detached which saw small decrease in the average sales price and the condo/townhome 1-2 bedroom market which saw the average sales price fall to $481,800 from last years $550,422 for the 6 units sold. This is a snapshot of all inventory in Arlington real estate that was listed in the MLS. To get a true market analysis for your property, it’s important to look at zip codes, neighborhoods, commutes, metro access etc. When purchasing or selling a home, the only important numbers are those that a true comparables to that specific property.

Arlington, Va Real Estate Statistics for May 2016

Here are the real estate statistics for Arlington, Va for May 2016. may2016arlingtonrealestate

So what does this mean? Here are some of my takeaways from these numbers:

-Inventory continues to be low. In May of 2016 there were 641 listings, down from 685 this time last year.

-Buyers continue to be active. If you look at the Days on Market, 113 sold listings sold between 1 and 10 days. Many of these were likely multiple offer scenarios. A total of 193 homes spent less then 30 days on the market.

-The average days on market has creeped up to 46 from 44 last year and the average sold price has actually dropped from $645,354.00 to $$633,667.00. Total sold volume is up to $186,931,646 from $185,216,524.

So what does all of this mean? It means that buyers are active but they are looking for value. If they spot a home that they feel is a good dollar value, they will buy it (or at least try to). To sellers this means..be strategic when pricing your home. The Average detached home sold for an inconsequential .27% over May of last year and detached (townhouse/condo) sold for a significant 2.07% less then last year. So if you want to sell your home in that less then 30 days time frame you might be wise to look hard at the comparable for your property and not price yourself above what buyers would consider a good value.
