These are certainly unprecedented times. I hope everyone is staying safe and practicing social distancing.

The real estate market is still moving though a bit differently than usual. We’re using FaceTime, Zoom and other video tools to show homes and TTR Sotheby’s International Realty has stopped holding open houses and instead we are taking appointments for one person at a time to see our listings. This week felt like a good time to feature a home I would most want to be quarantined in.

This house features over 15,000 square feet, 2 guest houses, an amazing wine cellar and a gym. Renovated by award winning BOWA in 2012, you can relax in the jetted tub, enjoy a glass of wine in the recreation room, or swim in the saltwater pool. Who would actually want to leave this house? Now reduced in price by nearly $500,000, check out this amazing home in McLean.

The big news this week (other than COVID-19) is the Federal Reserve cutting rates to zero.

If you already own a home, you’ve probably called your local lender to refinance and if you’ve been considering buying, now is a great time to buy. Despite social distancing and the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the spring market is still busy. As a matter of fact, there has been a sense that as the stock market continues to plummet, more investor money will be moved to real estate.

Keeping the low interest rates in mind, now is a great time to buy a beautiful home to quarantine in. This week’s feature is a brand new build home in Pimmit View. Featuring high ceilings, a spa-like master bathroom, gourmet kitchen, and over 5,500 square feet, this house is perfect for hunkering down. This home is also located in the coveted Marshall High School district. It truly has it all.

The question I am asked most often right now is, “How will COVID-19 affect the real estate market?”.

If this weekend’s sales volume and open house attendance is any indication, it won’t affect it at all. The stock market and the 10-year treasury yield have reacted negatively but I don’t expect that to affect our low inventory market too soon. While the virus has affected retail and industrial real estate in both China and the U.S., we haven’t seen the effects on residential yet. Inventory is still low and demand is still quite high.

This week’s featured home is a beauty in Great Falls. The landscape and pool is beautiful and the Waterworks of Georgetown bathrooms are spectacular. Situated on nearly 2 acres, High Hill has plenty privacy and serenity. The custom wine bar and walk-in wine cellar shouldn’t be missed. Now priced at $1,649,000 for nearly 7,000 sq. ft., this home is a lot of luxury for your money.

Spring market is really kicking it to gear and we’ve seen many more homes come on the market.

This week’s feature home is in a hot neighborhood in Vienna. Homes in this neighborhood tend to be larger, on larger lots and sell for considerably more than homes in other areas of Vienna. This southeast section of Vienna is just across the street from Westwood Country Club, next to the W&OD Trail, easily walkable to downtown Vienna and just minutes from Tysons Corner.

You know that point when traffic starts to really back up on Maple Ave? Don’t worry about it, you turn left just before the traffic and in just seconds, you’re home! This neighborhood is seeing a lot of large, luxurious homes being built. Homes in this neighborhood range from just under $2M to around $3.5M. This 4-year young home has a great backyard with a fire pit, an amazing bar in the basement, and a wine cellar to die for. Why buy new for hundreds of thousands of dollars more when you can buy this recently built gem?!

Different week, same story. Inventory is terribly low. Homes are selling fast meaning there are very few homes that get reduced in price.

This week in the Tysons area, there were 24 homes reduced in price. Of those homes reduced in price, nearly 65% of them are over $1 million and 45% are over $1.5 million which tends to be a bit softer market. The feature property this week is a lot of bang for your  buck though.

If you are looking for a remodeled home and having trouble finding anything below $1 million, this home just outside the Town of Vienna provides plenty of space and comfort on a .53 acre lot. 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms are located on the main level providing a rare option for 1 level living. A large deck with gazebo makes this home a great option for outdoor entertaining.

This week’s feature home is a favorite home for this column, the fixer upper on Ballantrae. If you read this column, you know that Ballantrae is considered one of the most prestigious streets in the area. Finding a fixer upper on this street is such a great way to get into an esteemed neighborhood for less. This week’s home has a lot of potential with just over 6,000 sq. ft. on 3 levels, a 1.12 acre lot and plenty of entertainment features. Built in 1979, this brick home is perfect for a remodel.

Inventory is still very low and many buyers are having difficulty finding a home.

New builds, especially in Vienna, are a hot product. The majority of new builds in Vienna are spec homes. These are homes built by a home builder “speculating” that someone will buy the product. They are already completed and move in ready. The finishes are kept neutral for mass appeal and typically reflect what most buyers find trendy at a given time. This option is great for buyers who don’t want to make too many decisions or give up time making choices on finishes and floor plans.

For buyers who want specific finishes or floor plans such as a ground floor master or a maybe an in-home gym, custom building is a great option. Custom building allows you to get exactly what you want in a new home. This week’s feature is a lot in Vienna ready for your new build. This lot is nearly a ¼ acre and in hot Vienna Woods.

To learn more about custom building a home, contact me for information on the March 7 informational brunch event at Westwood with Schantz Group, Paradigm Building Group and First Heritage Mortgage.

2020 is kicking off strong in the real estate market.

Buyers are already out looking and great homes are selling fast. The recently reduced in price market is small in the Tysons Corner area. There were only 15 homes decreased in price this week. Out of those 15 homes, only 4 were under $1M. Waiting for a home to come down in price is an event that is becoming less and less likely in Tysons Corner.

The luxury market has some great options though. This week’s feature home is a colonial in McLean featuring nearly 8,000 sq. ft. This stucco home is unique and features many custom, luxury upgrades. 6 bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms make this home perfect for anyone seeking great space. Reduced in price by $100,000, this motivated seller is ready to get you a luxury home in McLean for less.
