Washington County Residential Quarterly Sales

    Quarter 4 Residential Sales Graph for Washington County VA

    Reviewing the sales graph, notice the increase in Median Sales Price throughout the last 3 quarters of 2016. As we can see, in previous years, the spike in Median Sales Price took place mostly during the second quarter only…when higher priced/larger sized homes sold during Spring Market. The steady incline in median sales price is an indication that it’s not just a seasonal trend, but the result of  low inventory and/or multiple offers that drove the median price up in Washington County, VA significantly.

    When looking at the graph also notice the purple column, representing Supply/Demand percentage, increasing throughout the year. This is a percentage of sales during the quarter compared to the number of NEW listings. If the percentage is below 50%, which indicates more houses are coming on the market than selling, then it’s a buyer’s market. If the percentage is above 50%, which indicates more homes are selling than new listings coming on the market, then we have a seller’s market. Status quo is 50%….which means we are definitely in a Seller’s Market with low inventory leading to higher sales prices.
    Southwest VA experienced a 15.7% increase in number of sales in Q4 2016 (Oct-Dec 2016) compared to Q4 2015; this is a more robust increase than any other area in the state according to the Virginia Association of REALTORS Home Sales report for Q4 2016!
