Ashburn is still an active and hot residential real estate market. The stats and analysis are as follows:
- Homes for sale: 511 (same as in June and up from 440 one year ago)
- Homes sold: 88 (down from the tax credit induced 133 units in June and down from last year’s tax credit induced 121 units)
- Average sold price: $515,823 (a statistical spike over last month’s $444,119 and last year’s $435,855)
- Average days on market: 61 (very close to last year’s 60 days)
The increase of the trade up market, in which homeowners with equity sell and then buy a more expensive property, has resulted in a larger number of higher priced properties being sold. More than we have seen in a long time causing the averages to go up.
Currently, we have a five-month supply of houses to purchase. This is up from the four-months supply we had a few months ago. Remember that a six-month supply is considered a balanced market. If we can avoid another government housing stimulus, the market will have a chance to get back to “normal.”
