Real estate in Arlington VA and surrounding areas of Fairfax County real estate, Washington DC condos & Prince William County have experienced steep appreciation rates in recent years. That has ended and a more balanced market has emerged in which buyers in most cases do not need to submit a contract within a few days of a listing becoming active. There was also a price correction from the Summer 2005 peak in which property came down 5-25% depending on location--but was contingent upon the location and type of home (condos versus single family homes). Also worth noting is that inventory is declining rapidly returning to historical averages after peaking out 150% higher in the Spring of '06 versus '05--see blog post above for details/graphs. The inventory of Arlington VA condos came down significantly during the latter half of 2006. Buyers also have much more leverage now at the negotiating table.
