By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams

In June 2013, a total of 1,838 homes were sold in Fairfax County, VA. The total value of all the homes sold was $1,018,466,535 - pretty amazing - over one billion dollars of sales in one county. That's over $200M more than was sold the June prior. Huge numbers but don't forget that Fairfax county is the second wealthiest county in the US - edged out only by its neighbor, Loudoun County.

Values keep heading up. The median value of the sold homes was $490,000, up 9% from 2012, and 3% from May. On the other hand, the average price of a sold home was $554,117, a 7% increase from last June and a 1.5% increase from May. The average price paid for a home was about 99% of the original asking price, up 1.5% from 2012. When a home was being sold, it was on the market for an average of 23 days, down 42.5% from the previous year, and down 15% from May.

Overall, there are 2,337 active listings in Fairfax County, which is a 17% decrease from June of last year. Based on 1,766 homes being sold in May this represents a supply of less than 2 months. This, as well as the above factors, indicates a very healthy real estate market. Maybe a bit too healthy, as prices continue to spike upwards. This reminds me a little of the crazy times of rapid appreciation in 2005.
