Buy Alexandria Real Estate: December 2011

Posted Prices? A Gallon of Milk & An Average House

Curiously, if you drive by almost any gas station, convenience store, or grocery store, you'll see posted the current price of a gallon of milk, and the cost of a pack of cigarettes.  Since I don't consume either product, these prices don't mean much to me.  However, for others these staple items are benchmarks of the economy as a whole.

A Gallon of Milk

 

So, what do you think?  Should real estate offices post the average sales price each month for homes in the neighborhood right above the entrance?

  • A gallon of milk this week was $2.99 at the local gas station. 
  • The average sales price for a home in Arlington, VA last month was $512,725.

Would you like to pick up a house on your drive home from work?

Here's the average sales prices around the Northern Virginia area for homes sold in November 2011:

ALEXANDRIA          $450,602

ARLINGTON              $512,725

FALLS CHURCH        $476,768

GREAT FALLS       $1,279,767

MCLEAN                     $851,102

WASHINGTON DC   $514,274

Perhaps we should post a price range, since while the average price in McLean is $851,102, homes sold between $185,000 and $3.5 million.
