aj heidmann: The Arlington Condo, Arlington VA ~ 1st Quarter 2014 Market Review - 03/28/14 11:47 AM
As the 1st quarter of 2014 draws to a close, 8 units in The Arlington Condominium had successfully reached the settlement table, with another 3 units under contract.  Though it is early to draw a trend, 2014 should do well above the 5 year rolling average of 30 sold units per year, especially when considering the unusually cold and snowy weather we have had so far this year. 
With the limited data points, it is interesting to see that the loan M model sold for an unusually low net sales price of $254K, which was due to the dated condition … (11 comments)

aj heidmann: Sellers WHAT Are Your Doing??? - 01/15/14 12:39 PM
When it comes to selling your home... there is a premise that should be accepted by the owners once you that decision to sell:
 
"How your live your life while on the market, has nothing to do with how your life normally".
 
It is inconvenient to put your home on the market, it takes effort (for most people) to put your home on the market, but it is a necessary step to reach the next point in your life.  There are some sellers that really haven't grasped this concept and think it is all about them.  The reason it … (24 comments)

aj heidmann: "As-Is" ... but at Market Price - 01/11/14 09:12 PM
Market Rate "As-Is", What am I Missing?
 
I was setting up a tour of single family homes to take out some new buyer clients of mine tomorrow and I am seeing a lot of this in the Northern Virginia area, which goes something like this...  "Well maintained by owner for past 1-4 decades" or "Original owner with meticulous service history on property",(you get the drift on the verbiage in the MLS), but sold in "As-Is" condition.  My sincere question to anyone who can explain it so I understand, why sell a home in "As-Is" condition if it has been well … (6 comments)

aj heidmann: Meals on Wheels... at 10 Degrees in Alexandria, VA - 01/07/14 09:57 AM
Chilly Delivery Day
Today was my first rotation for Alexandria Meals on Wheels this year... and I picked a heck of a day for it.  With the arctic blast coming in over night it was 8 degrees when I woke up this morning (Northern VA just across the Potomac from Washington, DC isn't used to single digits) but it inched up a few degrees by the time I arrived for my meals.  The cold did however give me a reason to finally wear a Christmas gift from 2012...  a Carhartt pullover from my mother-in-law.

The Arlington Condo 2013 Market Review
The real estate for 2013 in The Arlington Condominium in Arlington, VA is best described as... Hot, Hot, Hot!  A total of 49 units went to settlement last year, which is well above the trailing 5 year average of 35 units per year.  While the upper level M model had the most sales again this year, the percentage was down from last year when basically half of all units sold in the community were the 875 square foot M units.

Prices were higher in 2013, with only a couple of short sales within the … (0 comments)

2013 Market Review
Alexandria, VA 22311
The Palazzo at Park Center in Alexandria, VA had very good 2013, as reflected in the sales numbers for the community.  Average prices were up year over year for all models with the exception of the Milan model, which declined 1% versus 2012 (which was due to one of the two units sold being in poor condition).  The stand out for the year was the Venice model, 2 bedroom / 1 bath unit, which say the average says price increase by 13% against last years number.  In addition, seller subsidies declined … (3 comments)

Showing Homes on New Year's Day
Yesterday was a great day for me, starting out the year showing homes for sale.  With sunny skies and a bit of nip in the air, I set out with some long time friends and new clients that have outgrown their starter condo and need space to stretch out with their two children.  Concentrating on properties in Arlington County, VA, we toured 5 homes in South Arlington which is near their current home.

aj heidmann: Snow Day in Northern Virginia - 12/08/13 02:28 PM
The first measurable snow of the year fell in Alexandria, VA today... with about an inch combined snow and sleet turning everything slick & slippery.  What to do on a day like today... build a snowman of course!
                                 
It took more work than you think; with just about an inch on the ground there is a lot of rolling to do.  Ultimately, we used a few other creative ways to bulk up Mr. Freezy (all natural of course!) and if we get the freezing rain that is … (5 comments)
