listing: 2011 Brookville / Seminary Valley, Alexandria Market Report - 01/16/12 04:32 AM
Seminary Valley had a very good year for real estate sales with 22 homes reaching settlement, especially when compared to the 5 year average of 17.6 home sales per year. This is the highest number of sales in the past five years, driven by an increase in affordability and interest rates at or near historical lows. More importantly, average net sales prices have held very stable since the low reached in 2009.  The general trend of purchasing homes in close-in locations versus larger & newer homes in the ex-burbs that we’ve seen over the past 3-4 years appears to be getting … (0 comments)

listing: 2011 Sales Report for The Arlington - 01/14/12 09:25 AM
The books for 2011 in The Arlington are closed and here are the results...
The Arlington had a just less than average year with 28 units sold, which was 10 less than the 2010 figure, but just slightly below the 31 unit average over the past 5 years.  One needs to remember that 2010 sales got a pretty good goosing from the expanded home buyer tax credit, which greatly expanded the pool of buyers from the original credit created in 2009.
The early part of the year provided a great time to list a unit in the association, with 14 units of half of the entire … (0 comments)

listing: The Shirlington Report ~ August 2009 - 09/15/09 04:37 AM
The Shirlington Report
~ August 2009 ~ 
A total of 24 units went to settlement in the month of August, while 14 of the 30 units under contract were ratified during the month.  Of this activity, 1st time home buyers appear to have been a driving force as they seek to qualify for the $8,000 tax credit, which requires settlement take place on or before November 30th. 
As far as where these sales took place across the pricing spectrum, 50% of these transactions occurred below the $350K threshold, another potential indicator of 1st time home buyer activity.

listing: The Secluded & Secure Plaza in Alexandria - 08/18/08 11:35 AM
The Plaza in Alexandria is a refuge from the daily grind, with a secluded 2-acre, professionally landscaped interior courtyard to relax in.  Sitting on N. Howard Street between Duke St and Seminary Road, this fantastic community flies under the radar of most agents here in Northern VA, though it shouldn't be!
Built as a quadrangle with a fully enclosed courtyard that hosts the outdoor pool, gym, his & her sauna/locker rooms, community room, and walking path, this community provides the best value proposition in the area.  For those that commute on the Metro-rail, the Metro bus stops directly in front of the building and wisks … (0 comments)
