Arlington, Va Real Estate Statistics for February 2016

The real estate statistics are in. February is often a slow month and this is reflected in the sales volume. Year over year volume was down a little over 10% to $80.8M from $90.2M. The average sold price crept up just slightly from $601,964 to $607,690. Not enough volume or price change to reflect a significant trend. Units sold dropped to 133 from 150 and average days on market went from 63 to 74. Attached homes sold price went from $920,279 to $874,541 a drop of almost 5% and attached average sold price went  from $465,975 to $496,975 up 6.75%.

As a seller if you are going to take anything away from these #sFebruarystatistics you might think that you should consider listing your detached home at recent comps and if you’ve got a condo you may be looking at a little bit more if prices keep going up.

There is not enough volume in February to make any real trend predictions though so we’ll have to keep a lookout for March statistics to see where the spring market is heading.

Tell the county (Arlington, Va) how you really feel

Here is a press release from the county. If you sign up, you can provide your comments/input on both expenditures AND the proposed tax rate. For now, the county is advertising no increase in your property tax rate. It can’t go up….but it could go down. Do not expect your tax bill to decrease either way though. For most of us, our homes have increased in value (although no one loves paying taxes, in the big scheme of things…this is a good thing), so we’ll see some increase in our tax bill.

Here is the release:

It Just Got Easier for You to Tell the County Board How to Spend $1.54 Billion

Arlington’s County Board is looking for your thoughts on the Proposed Fiscal Year 2017 Budget. You can weigh in at two public hearings scheduled in March.

There’s a lot at stake. Arlington’s Proposed Budget is $1.19 million. About 40 percent of that goes to support public schools. About $727.5 million pays for County operations.

The Board has advertised the same tax rate for Calendar Year 2016 as it adopted for CY 2015.  Under law, it cannot adopt a tax rate higher than what it has advertised – but it could go lower.

Unlike past years, this year you can comment on both the proposed property tax rate, and the proposed expenditures at either of the two public hearings on the Budget. The Board used to hold one hearing on tax rates, and another on expenditures. If you wanted to speak on both, you had to show up for both meetings. Now you can tell the Board everything Budget-related on your mind at one hearing.

The first public hearing is scheduled for Tuesday, March 29 in the County Board Room. The second will be held on Thursday, March 31, also in the Board Room. Both will begin at 7 p.m. with testimony on tax rates and fees. After a break, they will take up expenditures

To speak, sign-up in advance beginning at 8 am 5 business days before the Tuesday hearing date. Advanced sign-up will close at 5 pm the day before each hearing date. To register, visit the County website, call 703-228-3130 or visit the County board Office at 2100 Clarendon Blvd.

You can also sign-up to speak the evening of the hearings. And if you can’t make it to either public hearing, no worries. You can send us your comments through this easy-to-use online form.

To learn more about the new procedures for the Budget Public Hearings, visit the County website.Learn  more about the FY 2017 Proposed Budget.
