I hope everyone had an opportunity to enjoy the beautiful fall-like weather we’ve enjoyed.
We’re returning to temperatures in the 90s this week so I’ll do my best to remember how great that breeze felt this weekend. The summer has come to an end but it was a very busy summer. Sales in July were up from last year by nearly 10% and median days on market were down by over 50%. If you were having trouble securing a home in Fairfax County this summer, so were many buyers. Prices are up from this time last year also but not in every neighborhood.
Vienna prices are rising while Oakton and McLean are staying steady. I’ve lost more than a few contracts to an all cash buyer this year and the statistics reflect that fact. 10% of all transactions in Fairfax County so far this year have been all cash. This year has also been about moving fast. Almost 40% of homes sold this year have sold in 10 days or less. The fall market is already heating up so it still looks like a good time to sell.
This week’s feature home is on a very large lot (.69 acre!) in Vienna. This craftsman home features tons of upgrades, a wine room and a private suite above the garage. This beautiful home has just been reduced in price $100,000.

Chris Green is one of the DMV’s finest fitness instructors. A Lululemon and South Block ambassador, he is a coach and mentor to so many. He embodies grace, positivity and motivation in ways that no one else can. If we could all learn a thing or two from him, the world would be a much better place. He does so much for others, and does so with a smile on his face 99% of the time.
He recently ruptured his Achilles and has an incredibly long and tough journey ahead. As if COVID hadn’t impacted fitness professionals enough, throw this in the mix and it’s a double, even triple whammy. CG is no longer able to work and do what he loves for the time being because of this and we’d love your support.
