When Averages Can Be Misleading: January 2013 Arlington Real Estate Market Review

Arlington Real Estate Market Review:

The real estate market right now in Arlington is definitely a sellers market. Low inventory, multiple offers, contingency waivers, and a frenzy of showings indicates that the supply level right now just can’t keep up with demand. A total of 132 properties sold in January, of which 24% sold AT or ABOVE list price. Even crazier: 26 were cash transactions. Only 8 were foreclosures or short sales. However, the averages for the month don’t reflect the market as a whole right now. Average sale price was down 6.5% and median sale price was down 11.5%, while sellers were getting an average of 96.1% of original list price. This is due to the huge increase in smaller transactions that occurred in January (think condos under $200k). Looks like those sellers are taking advantage and moving up into bigger properties.
