Congratulations to new buyers Fred and Jodi

Big congratulations to new real estate buyers Jodi and Fred Comunale. Jodi and Fred were referred to me by a former co-worker from my technology days. Jodi is the daughter of my co-worker. Jodi and Fred were renting a townhome in Arlington. When their beautiful baby Lia came into their lives, they knew they needed a home with a yard. They decided on this lovely home on 1004 North Quantico St. Arlington, Va. The home is located in popular Madison Manors and is served by Mckinley/Swanson/Yorktown schools. It’s nearby the popular shops, library, restaurants and farmers market of Westover.

I know they are going to love living there! Congratulations.

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.

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.

For more information and/or a no obligation valuation call me at 571-228-5656  or email janejensen@comcast.net

Teddy Recommends Dog Training

Teddy recently completed Dog Obedience Training. Ok, here’s the real truth…it’s dog owner obedience training. We must be trained to be dog owners, not dog pals or the human pets of our dogs. Sigh. It’s just so hard. Teddy is a rescue who has some “stranger danger” issues. He is an unbelieveably easy dog to train though and when “I’m the boss, alot of his “issues” go away because he doesn’t feel like he has to protect or manage a situation. Not to brag..but at one point the instructor asked Teddy..ok, he asked me to stop showing off. Teddy was a star. I swear if I tell him to stay, I could go away for the weekend and he’ll be in the same spot when I get back. Not going to test that hypothesis though. That would be cruel, and look at that face. Seriously, look at it. It’s hard to remember to “Be the Boss”. I’ll be the one that will need retraining. img_7182Teddy and I both recommend this trainer. Here’s a copy of his flyer. There is a link to the website. http://www.dogsolve.com. I would recommend calling them and finding out when the next class starts. Teddy and I took the training through Arlington County but they have private lessons as well.

And don’t forget, it’s a great time to buy or sell a home. Inventory is stubbornly low so your home is worth more then you think, and you should really start thinking about interest rates if you need to buy something.  Call me 571-228-5656. janejensen@comcast.net
