My Arlington real estate clients are the best

Helping my Arlington, Va clients meet their goals, one home at a time.

It’s really wonderful when I am able to help someone move to the next phase of their life. We reviewed the comps for Miriams’ home closely then priced it competitively. Miriam received multiple offers, well over asking and was able to get a quick close on her home.testimonial_miriam_catching

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. June 2016 Real Estate Statistics

arlington stats jpg

Here are the real estate statistics for Arlington, Va for June 2016. Note that these statistics are taken from MLS sales and will not include for sale by owner sales or person to person transactions.

Takeaways:

Total volume is down year over year. If we look a little deeper into those numbers we’ll see that the price of detached homes is up, while the number of sold homes is down. Inventory is also down year over year so this tells us that sellers are getting more for their homes during a time of reduced inventory. The reduced inventory of detached homes is keeping the total sold volume down more then the prices.

The same cannot be said for attached homes (townhomes and condos). While the # of detached units sold went up, the prices came down almost 10%.  This is a signal to buyers that now might be a time where you can negotiate a bit on that condo if the unit is priced at or above recent market. Sellers should also be cognizant of this trend when pricing their home. If you are looking for a quick sale, consider pricing your home at or just below market.

Statistics are available for other Northern Virginia counties as well as Washington, DC. If you are interested in these numbers send me an email at janejensen@comcast.net or call 571-228-5656 and I will get you the stats.
