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.

What makes Arlington a world class community?

This video about Arlington, Va. was created a few years ago but is still exceptionally relevant today. I’ve lived here for 25 years and the reasons people cite in this video for loving this community, are the reasons I stay.

Arlington is exceptionally welcoming, diverse and friendly. It’s committed to providing residents with a safe, comfortable environment. Some other things I’ve personally noted is the commitment to the environment, making Arlington, Va. walker and biker friendly, community space, education, art and culture.

As an Arlington, Va. realtor I’ve long noted the different flavors different neighborhoods within our small geography have. And..it’s been interesting to watch various neighborhoods change and evolve over the years. When I moved here the Shirlington neighborhood did not even exist as a town center and Clarendon was a few bars (Remember when Bardos had a car going through their front window?), a Sears and a bike store. Times have changed and almost without exception (I do miss Queen Bee…that fabulous Vietnamese Restaurant) the changes have been well managed and great for the community. I continue to love living here and you will too. What is it that you think makes Arlington great? I would love to hear your comments.

Don’t miss this Art Exhibit at the Arlington, Va County Library

One of the many great community offerings of Arlington County, Va is the library system. I’ve previously posted locations and hours. Just so you know I do actually use the library, I was there to drop off a book yesterday and was astounded by the incredible artwork being produced by the county’s 7th-12th graders. On display is artwork that is part of a juried art show. The show has not “officially” begun but the artwork is up. I did not have alot of time but I am going to go back and look again. There is so much talent in our young folk. I snapped a photo of the show poster and a couple of the boards displaying the works. The address is 1015 N.Quincy Arlington, Va. It’s the central (main) library.

It’s so important to foster this type of talent. So happy that our system encourages and supports the Arts.

As a side note, I was returning The Goldfinch, a Pulitzer Prize winner. Thoroughly engrossing and engaging. It’s long but worth every paragraph. I can highly recommend it if you are interested in character development, philosophical questions of good and bad, art and how it effects us. A really great read.
