What's the Average Price of a Home in...?

Everyone buying a home wants to know the average home prices in the areas that interest them.  People planning to sell their homes like this information too.  While real estate is extremely hyper-local, just getting an idea of prices in a particular area can be helpful.  Home prices vary greatly from one locality to the next.

Here's a quick and easy guide to the average prices in different cities and towns in Northern Virginia -- note that within each of these areas prices can vary widely depending upon particular neighborhood.  This is a general guide just to prices within the cities and towns.

I've broken it down by type of home -- detached single family, townhouse, and condo.  You should also note that these averages are based on MRIS data of currently listed homes.  The data does not include for sale by owner properties, and does not necessarily indicate the prices for which these homes will eventually sell.  The numbers are meant to give you a general landscape of the different average prices by jurisdiction.

You can certainly see the disparity between the different locations.  Use this as a handy-dandy guide to helping you choose where to purchase your next home.  The average home in McLean is obviously very different from the average home in Springfield.

Of course, for a more detailed pricing guide broken down to a more micro level including zip codes or particular neighborhoods, feel free to contact me anytime.

Brian, and when you talk about "average" prices, it's important to note that this area is incredibly architechturally diverse.  So you could have more smaller homes and fewer biggies selling, bringing down the average.  But the new average may not reflect what's going on the price range for the houses that are selling.

Does this make any sense at all?
