Home Sale Statistics in Northern Virginia – September 2020

The Northern Virginia real estate market continues to be strong, however the issue of low inventory continues for buyers (although some hyper local areas in our region experienced a double-digit increase in number of homes coming on the market in September).  We are also seeing an upward pressure on home prices due to the inventory shortage and many areas are experiencing a substantial price increase year-over-year. 

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again…if you are someone thinking of selling your home in the near future, now is the time…buyer demand is still high and supply is low. 

Northern Virginia September 2020 home sales:

4,018 homes went under contract in the region. This is up (24%) from the same time period in 2019.

66% of the homes that went to settlement in September 2020, sold in 10 days or less from when they hit the market. 

• Average sold price was $617,286 (up 13% from the same time period in 2019).

4,998 homes came on the market. That’s up 27% from September 2019.

• Homes that sold (closed) averaged 18 days on market, 15 days faster than in September of 2019.

• There is currently a 1.1 month supply of homes (remember, in a balanced market – the demand from buyers equals the supply from sellers – there is a 5-6 months supply) in the Northern Virginia – and 3,531 homes for sale (townhouse, condo and single-family).

OVERALL: Northern Virginia remains in a Seller’s Market. Market activity in the region continued to be up year-over-year, however the number of homes that went under contract decreased a bit from August.  Inventory, on the other hand, was up 11% in September compared to August but we are still experiencing an inventory shortage which is putting upward pressure on home prices.

The #1 Reason Not to Wait to List Your House for Sale

Many industries have been devastated by the economic shutdown caused by the COVID-19 virus. Real estate is not one of them.

Mark Fleming, Chief Economist for First American, just reported:

“Since hitting a low point during the initial stages of the pandemic, the only major industry to display immunity to the economic impacts of the coronavirus is the housing market. Housing has experienced a strong V-shaped recovery and is now exceeding pre-pandemic levels.”

Buyer demand is still strong heading into the fall. ShowingTime, which tracks the average number of buyer showings on residential properties, just announced that buyer showings are up 61.9% compared to the same time last year. They went on to say:

“Normally, real estate activity begins to slow down in the late summer, but this year it peaked in July, August and into September.”

There Is One Big Challenge

Purchaser demand is so high, the market is running out of available homes for sale. Just last week, realtor.com reported:

“Since the beginning of the COVID pandemic in March, nearly 400,000 fewer homes have been listed compared to last year, leaving a gaping hole in the U.S. housing inventory.”

The National Association of Realtors (NAR) revealed that, while home sales are skyrocketing, the inventory of existing homes for sale is dropping dramatically. Below is a graph of existing inventory (September numbers are not yet available):

The #1 Reason Not to Wait to List Your House for Sale | MyKCM

Homebuilders are increasing construction, but they cannot keep up with the high demand. Bill McBride, founder of the Calculated Risk blog, in discussing inventory of newly constructed houses, notes:

“The months of supply decreased to 3.3 months…This is the all-time record low months of supply.”

What does this mean for sellers?

Anyone thinking of putting their home on the market should not wait. A seller will always negotiate the best deal when demand is high and supply is limited. That’s exactly the situation in the real estate market today.

Next year, when the pandemic is hopefully behind us, there will be many more properties coming to the market. Don’t wait for that increase in competition in your neighborhood. Now is the time to sell.
