Thoughts on how the real estate market is in NoVA? Slowing down or bidding wars on-going?

We’re actively looking in Fairfax/Loudoun for a 5/4 around ~$1.2M. In seeing homes that have recently sold, they’re going above asking but only about 50k or so. Earlier this year, there were homes listed for $800k selling for $1.1M. It’s slowing down as CSM1 mentioned. Bidding wars are less but prices still inflated.


I’ve seen both. Bidding wars on turn-key, well maintained homes, but slowing excitement to buy any old run-down thing. Our neighborhood in Alexandria is up ~14% YoY, so close to the national average.


I’m actually not looking, just wanted everyone’s perspective, stirring up a discussion.


My wife and I have been looking in Loudon and Fairfax County, the price cuts are coming back but part of it seems to be that owners were starting to price to the upper end of those bidding war prices from the beginning and thinking they could get higher. The good news is we are seeing faster price cuts, even as soon as two weeks on the market. Agree that it's mostly the less we'll maintained or those with older interiors.


How about for the rental market? Want to rent a 2br for ~2600 but it seems impossible. Will it come back down to those prices?

Where ya looking?

NoVA is a huge place. Where specifically are you looking?

BAH 1- I hear you. Yesterday I was browsing on Zillow and saw a place in Aldie that was listed for 950k. They bought the place for 640k in 2018! Good luck to you, I’m sure something good will turn out. Not sure if you checked Hartland but I heard those are nice (same thing there though, builders jacked up prices on the 2nd or 3rd day they came on sale).

BCG2 - agreed, best of luck in your search!
