FROM DULLES AREA ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS | JANUARY 2016 REAL ESTATE REPORT
Loudoun County’s February median sales price of $415,000 was 1.4 percent higher than last year.
Total sales volume across the county was over $162 million, up 9.9 percent from last February which had $147.5 million in dollar volume.
The 362 closed sales marked an 11.0 percent increase from last year. Sales have now increased in 13 of the last 14 months in Loudoun County.
The number of new contracts in February increased by 9.6 percent, suggesting January’s decline was indeed, weather-related.
New listing activity decreased versus last year for the tenth consecutive month, with the 714 homes added in February missing the February 2014 tally by 4.8 percent.
For the eighth consecutive month, inventory at month’s end is lower than the same point last year. The 15.5 percent drop-off marks the largest decline since April 2013.
Half the homes sold in February were on market 58 days or less, a one-week improvement from last February’s median DOM of 65 days.
Condos (+4.4 percent) and townhouses (+4.1 percent) both saw year-over-year gains in median pricelevels. The condo segment had a median price of $259,990 and the townhouse median was $395,500, representing gains of 4.4 percent and 4.1 percent, respectively.
The median sales price for detached units fell 3.5 percent to $524,798.
Median price levels were up in five of the nine Loudoun ZIP codes with 14+ sales, led by a 22.2 percent gain in Chantilly’s 20152. Its median of $471,250 was the highest of the ZIP codes analyzed. The significant gain in the 20152 ZIP code was due to more than half of its sales being detached in February, up from only 36 percent of its February 2015 sales.
Ashburn’s 20148 had the next highest February median at $468,000, though its level was down 4.5 percent versus last year.

"I'm so thankful for Jason Jordan! I have to say he is patient! And I am determined and stubborn. My fiance and I had a list of standards and requirements for our first home purchase together and I wasn't willing to waiver on any of them. We came close but thankfully our dream house was just around the corner. Jason set up a customized home search for us with our specific requirements on it, which would be sent to us daily, and I would go through them diligently. As soon as we had an official contract on our townhome that we had to sell, I made of list of my top 4 homes I wanted to see. You know what I realized? The house I fell in love with came back on the market! MY DREAM! Now, the other homes were still wonderful and we had yet to see them. Mr Jordan was wonderful and took us through them all so that we could be CERTAIN we felt we were making the best decision. When we walked into our house I knew it was mine! Just felt it in my bones. And it met EVERY SINGLE REQUIREMENT!
Things I like about Jason:
1. He is quick to respond and responds honestly. NO BS.
2. Super helpful and informative especially if you don't know about layouts or terminology. He will walk you right through it. This was my first experience and am glad I had Jason there to walk me through it.
3. Familiarity with Virginia is also a plus. He has been living and working in the area for quite a while and is familiar with it. So he can help guide you to the neighborhoods that give you that home feeling that is right for you!
4. Did I mention that if you are selling a home he puts on one hell of an open house?
Trust me, he's great and I'm in the home of my dreams. I know what I'm talking about!"
