jseville posted this 2,399 Views

There is a lot of talk out there about a buyer's market.  I hear the phrase from condo buyers weekly and need to set the record straight.  In general, for Arlington VA real estate there is definitely not a buyer's market.  However there is a particular price bracket where that is accurate.  And on the front end I do want to acknowledge some inspiration for this post from my comrade and blogroll partner at urban trekker who wrote Spotting Trouble in Metro DC Housing.

It's common knowledge that the market shifted in the last 18 months.  But it's only now that the statistics are verifying some of the price corrections....Many of us on the front lines knew prices in reality were different a long time ago, however this was not being illustrated by the monthly stats as far as the price variable was concerned.   Why not?  Well the stats on price only reflect sold homes.  Thus all the homes that did not sell, rent...

That's a sign something the buyers and sellers were having "issues".  Average List Price Tumbles for Real...
