 Loudoun county real estate agents Jan and Steve Bachman

  Spring is not yet here but Loudoun County's real estate market is warming up. The low unemployment rate, about half the national average, combined with record low interest rates have kept the price recovery coming along.

Don't forget, the national real estate situation has almost no bearing on the good news from Loudoun; See for yourself... Loudoun's major statistics through the month of February 2013 are below. The charts are self soon as the next month's figures are available, this post will automatically update.




 Loudoun county real estate agents Jan and Steve Bachman In order to smooth out seasonal aberrations and monthly anomalies, we generally use longer term statistics...covering 3-5 years.

The larger data set also helps uncover any underlying market trends of strength or weakness.

Below is the 5 year median price trend for Loudoun which mirrors that of all NOVA counties.

The market bottomed in early 2009 and has been recovering a significant amount of the equity loss from the freakish never before seen price highs of 2005.

Hover your cursor over any point on the graphs to get a monthly read...they are interactive.





The number of days that it takes to get a winning contract as of last January 2013, stands at 63 a very wonderful number. As the weather warms, these numbers should decrease as you can see historically below:

The existing inventory of re-sale homes is at the five year low on the chart below.  Short supply and strong demand has edged prices upward. Although Northern VA home prices took a beating between 2006 and first quarter of 2009, we have been spared the devastation that occurred in the "Sand" states of Florida, California,and Nevada.

 As always, the strong economy of our area has cushioned us from the worst.

Well priced homes under $350k in good locations and in good condition have been getting multiple contracts within a few weeks of coming on the market.

Upper end properties ...above $750k, are moving more slowly even though some of them had sold for over a million once upon a time.




 Virginia Landscape Photographer, Digital Artist and Realtor Steve BachmanJan and I have sold more new construction homes in the last year couple of years than we ever have. This is directly due to the low inventory of existing property combined with strong builder incentives.

However, builder's business actually has become so good in the last 9 months that many are cutting back on those sweet seller subsidies for buyer closing costs and the generous incentives for buyers options.

That said, there are some select builders who are offering some great options and subsidies, to get folks to come visit in the cold winter months.

My guess is that as the weather warms, these subsidies will shrink.

The national news regarding real estate is NOT US.

Homes are selling...As an example, 400+ new homes sold in 2011 in Loudoun's Ashburn community of amazing # of properties.
