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.

Want to make your yard welcoming to local birds, bees and butterflies? Plant native and they will come! You can view the order form online at here.

Why Plant Native?  Native plants are local to our area so tolerate our crazy weather, they don’t need a lot of care once establish and they provide food and habitat for our local species.

Why Plant in the Fall? Fall is the best time of year for planting. It’s when most plants are focusing on growing and expanding their roots, which in turn helps them to come back strong in the spring. Plus, fall’s wet, mild weather means less watering is needed on your part to keep plants alive and thriving.
