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 April 2011.  All information was obtained through MRIS.

Overall, there were 61 Northern Virginia home sales topping $1 million during April 2011.  This is on pace with the 60 sold in March and a sustained 33% increase from the 45 that sold in February.  The spring market in luxury homes is definitely heating up! 

Currently, there are 775 homes on the market in Northern Virginia with list prices topping $1 million - this is a significant increase from the 678 that were on the market at this time last month.  There's more available inventory which may make for a slightly higher amount of negotiating room for purchasers in this price range.
