Hello Fort Hunters!
We thought it would be interesting to take a quick look at how our 2013 real estate sales data for sold homes compared to that of 2012 and 2011. Consider this a small historical prospective.
Here is what we found:
222 Sold Listings
Average List Price: $872,271*
Average Sold Price: $666,099
Average Seller Subsidy: $3,546
Average Days on Market: 57
*this number is inflated due to at $25 Million dollar listing of a large parcel of land with a home on East Blvd.
209 Sold Listings
Average List Price: $615,270
Average Sold Price: $601,896
Average Seller Subsidy: $3,352
Average Days on Market: 60
174 sold listings
Average List Price: $662,978
Average Sold Price: $643,857
Average Seller Subsidy: $3,798
Average Days on Market: 85
*statistics from MRIS 2014
The many varying price points we have in this zip code account for the differential in list and sold pricing from year to year. Houses can sell for well over 1 million, all the way down to the mid 300’s. (see note about above inflated average list price – we currently have one active listing at $25 million)
In 2011, there were 11 listings that sold for over 1 million dollars, and 12 listings that sold for under $400,000.
In 2012, there were 10 listings that sold for over 1 million dollars, and 17 listings that sold for under $400,000.
In 2013 there were 17 listings that sold for over 1 million dollars, and 9 listings that sold for under $400,000. This explains the higher average sold price as well.
Take a look at the graph below to get a visual sense of the varying price points in our zip code that sold in 2013. Note that the largest number of homes that sold fall between $500K and $599K, followed by $600K to $699K. The number of homes that closed in 2013 was 6% higher than the number of homes that closed in 2012.
We should all be thankful for a solid, strong real estate year, and especially thankful that we live (or maybe want to live) in the best corner of Fairfax County.
Let us hear from you!
