June's Most Expensive Sales

Are you wondering about Northern Virginia real estate and pondering what has sold recently?

Here's some information about the most expensive home sales in Northern Virginia (Arlington County, Alexandria City, Fairfax City, Fairfax County, and Falls Church City) for June 2009.  All information was obtained through MRIS.

Overall, there were 92 sales sales topping $1 million during the month of June 2009, a 50% increase from the 61 that sold in May and more than double the number (40) that sold in April.   The luxury market seems to be heating up a bit.  Or maybe it's just those Maryland Millionaires moving down our way to Virginia.

Thanks Brian.  For all of metro Atlanta for the same time period there were only 52 sales over a million.  Am I in the wrong place?
