Feb 2012-Fairfax County Housing Market Trend

Positive News is always welcomed especially by the home buyer and sellers in the Northern Virginia who are considering to be in the 2012 residential real estate market:

So what are the positive notes in the Northern Virginia market:

  • A 27% decline in Foreclosure at the end of the 2011 fourth quarter was reported by RealtyTrac.

  • Virginia continues to fare quite well as compared to other states across the United States, as only nine states have lower unemployment rates than Virginia. Northern Virginia has remained at 4.97%.

  • Rentals are on rise..that has put lot of first time home buyers in the market to purchase rather than continuing paying rent that would almost equal to their mortgage in some cases.




As per the data released by MRIS/RBI a local MLS  the January closing in the Northern Virginia, Fairfax County region was on the positive rise. Both Average and Median sales price are both higher compared to last year. On the down side the number of days has gone higher which can be related to the winter month or month right after holidays. We continue to see large number of home buyers in Fairfax finance their home purchase either under convention or FHA loan type and a significant percentage of cash buyers!!!
