Bristow, VA Market Report – 8/24/11

Wow, what’s going on in Bristow?  Coupled with Gainesville ,they are Prince William County’s hot spots!

Sales volume is up 26% year over year.  While much of our area saw a decline, and Prince William County overall only showed slightly over 1%.  Foreclosures are down over 55% from last year.  The strong growth is driven by the number of newer homes on the market as well as reasonably priced new construction.
