What I've noticed lately is that quite a few businesses in Loudoun County have now built a presence in these … [Read more...]

LoCo Home Prices Level Out

Spring in Ashburn

We are creeping toward July and the end of the spring/summer market. How is median home price holding up for Loudoun County? Looking first at single family homes, after the huge spike up in March and April, we have settled back down in the $550,000 range again; just slightly lower than where we were at this point in 2009, but up a bit from the … [Read more...]

Sunshine, Summertime, and Home Shopping?

Spring in Ashburn

So what's been happening with the real estate market in Loudoun County since the tax credit expired April 30th? We saw a huge jump up in inventory right away...and now it appears to have calmed down a bit, and some of that inventory has been absorbed.

Inventory is Low, the Builders are Back…

New construction in Loudoun

If you follow along with market statistics at my LoCo Market Stats blog, then you know that our real estate inventory levels in Loudoun County have been really low lately.  It only makes sense that with little to choose from in the resale market, the builders are back with new construction homes to fill the gap.  Pulte Homes is holding a Grand … [Read more...]

Holding Steady Again

Spring in Ashburn

We are still in the swing of the busiest part of the year for real estate in Loudoun County, and our median price for both single family homes and the combined condo/townhome market appears to be stable again. We saw a momentary jump up in price driven by the low inventory and high demand as the first time homebuyer tax credit was ending, but … [Read more...]

Take a Deep Breath…

Spring in Ashburn

The last time I looked at inventory levels in LoCo was on May 4th, right after the first time homebuyer tax credit ended, and found the HUGE jump in homes available for sale. Looking at what has happened since then, it appears to have leveled off a bit (and absorbed a tiny amount of the condo/townhome inventory).  Anyone that tells you they … [Read more...]

KB Home is Back in Ashburn

Martin's Chase in Ashburn

In April of 2008, I wrote a post detailing how the new home builders were bailing out of our area as the market weakened, and pointed out the KB Home community at Martin's Chase in Ashburn specifically.  We've seen builders coming back into the county over the course of the last year.  Lennar reopened in Martin's Chase last summer, and has … [Read more...]
