jenny mcclintock: Where We Live: Evergreen Square - 10/23/19 01:57 PM
Here at the HBC Group, we specialize in finding the perfect home for our buyers and sellers. For many years, the Northern Virginia area has been amazing, especially our home turf of the McLean and Great Falls housing market, but what about neighboring towns such as Oakton? The population of the DMV (DC, Maryland, Virginia) continues to grow every year, and as certain communities get more and more popular, some communities are almost overlooked.
The town of Oakton is located just 18 miles outside of Washington DC, and offers an array of activities that you cannot find in the heart of the … (2 comments)

jenny mcclintock: Reston Real Estate Market UP for 2018! - 01/11/19 01:06 PM
The numbers are in for 2018 and the news is good for Reston real estate.  We experienced 1316 transactions in 2018, a 2% increase from 2017.  That’s on top of a 3% increase from 2016 to 2017.  So the market has had considerable improvement in the past two years.  If we compare to the 2008 market just one decade ago, home sales totaled only 934.  Certainly the economic downturn was in full swing in 2008 and the numbers at an all time low.There are a number of economic factors that affected real estate in 2018.  First, interest rates have bounced around … (4 comments)

jenny mcclintock: Where We Live: Stuart Mill - 09/27/18 07:52 AM
Stuart Mill Road curves it’s way through what was once entirely farmland and is now serene residential homesteads. This neighborhood toes the line between far enough from DC to be truly quiet while still close enough to have access to activities and transportation.
This neighborhood has been built up over the years. Some of these homes date back earlier than the first World War and 11 have been built since the turn of the century. As most of the neighborhoods don’t have Homeowners Associations, the houses come in various styles, primarily consisting of colonials and ramblers. The more recent homes built in … (2 comments)

jenny mcclintock: Reston Real Estate Market Up for 2017 - 01/31/18 11:48 AM
The number of real estate transaction in Reston closed out the year 3% greater in 2017 than in 2016.  In comparison to the 2007 market just one decade ago, the number is up 7%.  This is significant as 2007 was the last peak year in Northern Virginia for real estate. Anytime there are more buyers than the previous year indicates an environment for potential price appreciation, which is very good news as we look towards the 2018 spring season.
Breaking down into price segments, most price segments performed better or remained steady in 2017 compared to 2016 and the benchmark year of … (2 comments)

jenny mcclintock: Silver Line Metro area zip codes have a banner year! -Jenny McClintock - 11/06/15 01:49 AM
Every home owner in Reston is asking the same question.  Is the Wiehle Avenue metro station creating more demand for home ownership?  The analysis for the past two years shows a resounding yes, at least in two of the three Reston zip codes for single family homes.
