Fairfax County Mid Year Real Estate Report

Indicators for the Fairfax County Real Estate Market improved for both buyers and seller through the first half of 2014. The concern in the beginning of the year was lack of inventory which was driving sales prices. Looking at the charts above, the market shows a significant increase in the number of units on the market providing buyers more choices. The percent of sold price to list price indicates seller's are still benefiting from the strong demand with some seller incentives to buyers.

Reston Real Estate Shows Steady Growth

The Reston, Virginia housing market shows steady growth through the 2nd Quarter of 2014. Consider the following:

The average list price that has risen over $85,000 from January ($412,539) to June ($497,705).

The average sold price has risen by almost the same amount from January ($405,285) to June ($487,509).

The average days on the market have decreased from 47 to 24.

The average percent of net sold price to list price is 98.23%.  While buyers are showing the ability and willingness to pay higher prices this in no way is a free pass for sellers. For example, one townhome home in the Lake Anne area has experienced a $100,000 price adjustment and is still on the market after an initial list date in April. This is a home in good condition, has a desireable floor plan and is in a desirable neighborhood.

The month end numbers for May continue with the same theme as evidenced earlier in the year - it is a Seller's market in Reston, Virginia. Both the average and median Net Sold Price to List Price as well as the low number of days on the market shows that buyers are writing offers that support the seller's list price.

Wondering if there is a typo in the median List and Sold for May? I did a double take myself. The high number of condos sold in May accounts for the difference (47 of the 105 properties were condos).

If you are a buyer in today's market there are steps you can take to writing a winning offer. Contact us today to find out more!
