Ashburn, VA Market Report – 2/23/10

Here’s a quick snapshot of the market in Ashburn, Virginia (compared to December 2009):

  • Homes for sale: 404 (up 10%)
  • Closed sales: 65 (down 20%)
  • Average sold price: $423,445 (down 1.5% from last month, down 28% from one year ago)
  • Average days on market: 51 (up from 43 days last month)

The average sales price in Ashburn has bounced around like a ping pong ball from month to month for the past 18 months. Prices are definitely still lower than one year ago, but when looking at the median sales price rather than the average sales prices, you can see that the prices are stabilizing or rising slightly.

As is normal at the beginning of the year through early summer, more houses are coming onto the market. This bodes well for buyers who want to take advantage of the low interest rates, liberalizing lending terms, and the Federal Housing Tax Credit. To get the tax credit you must be under contract by April 30th and close before June 30, 2010.

Ashburn has a great selection of homes and almost all of them are under 15 years old–the approximate age of the entire area. The great thing about Ashburn is with such a huge diversity of homes, an individual or family can keep trading up or down in size and style and never change grocery stores or school districts. You can have change and stability at the same time.
