September's Most Expensive Sales in Northern Virginia

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 September 2009.  All information was obtained through MRIS.

Luxury home sales have been slowing down quite a bit during the last few months.  The majority of the activity in Northern Virginia real estate is occurring with first-time buyers anxious to take advantage of the $8000 tax credit expiring on November 30th.  Needless to say, most of these first-time buyers are not purchasing in the luxury price ranges.

Overall, there were 54 Northern Virginia home sales topping $1 million during the month of September 2009, down from 76 in August and 90 in July 2009.

Currently, there are 845 homes on the market in Northern Virginia with list prices topping $1 million.
