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.

Crime in Arlington, Va continues downward trend

The Following is a Release from the Arlington County Police Department:

 

Police Release 2016 Annual Report

ARLINGTON, Va. – The Arlington County Police Department has released the 2016 Annual Report, highlighting the many endeavors the men and women of this department undertake to maintain Arlington County as a safe place to live, work and visit. Last year the agency adopted three key initiatives to guide staff as we continue to deliver professional police services to our community. These initiatives are community engagement, transportation safety, and crime prevention and control. In recognition of our commitment to keeping the Arlington community informed and engaged, this annual report reflects accomplishments in each initiative.

Among the information in the annual report is the 2016 crime statistics. Arlington’s overall crime rate, which is comprised of Part I offenses as defined by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, decreased by 2.4% in 2016. The grand total of Part I offenses (homicide, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, larceny and motor vehicle theft) was 3,512 in 2016, down from 3,628 in 2015. Over the last five years, the overall crime rate in Arlington County has continued to trend downward.

The majority of crimes reported to the Arlington County Police Department are Part II offenses which encompasses various felony and misdemeanor crimes. Part II offenses decreased marginally by 0.34% from 7,313 in 2015 to 7,288 in 2016. Additionally, calls for service received by the Police Department dropped by 4.5% from 87,475 in 2015 to 83,511 in 2016.

Traffic statistics also reflected a decrease in 2016 as there were 140 fewer reportable crashes than in the previous year. Crashes involving bicycles decreased by 30.4% from 46 in 2015 to 32 in 2016. While there were 24 more reportable pedestrian involved crashes in 2016 than in the previous year, the number of reported incidents have remained relatively consistent over the last five years. In 2016, there were zero pedestrian, bicyclist, or driver fatalities investigated by the Arlington County Police Department.

The Arlington County Police Department remains committed to proactively policing our neighborhoods to prevent and reduce crime, building strong partnerships with the community and effectively communicating to ensure the public’s trust. By working together with our citizens, we can continue to maintain the safety of Arlington County.

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.
