Arlington VA Market Statistics – January 2010

New year, new start! We last left off looking at the 2009 end of year wrap up – low inventory levels, prices were starting to creep back up, and even the condo market was starting to rebound. So how did that translate into market activity in January 2010?

Overall, Arlington County saw an 18% decrease in days on the market (things were selling, on average, in about 66 days), but the real news comes in Average Sale Price, which is UP 6% from 2009. (insert thumbs up here! where’s my “like” button?) There were 136 properties that sold in January; 7 of those were short sales and 9 were foreclosures/bank-owned properties. In 2009, there were 121 sales, of which 5 were short sales and 10 were foreclosures.
