The market in Pimmit Hills has been going strong this spring and prices have worked their way upwards. For a standard 3/1 rambler the average price is now about $340,000. The last sale on Magarity Road of a basic rambler was $350,000 (and it sold in 2 days.) It was a corner lot on a busy street – Magarity is a popular street for teardowns though. It was also close to the new metro station.
On average ~4 homes are selling per month – many in a week or less. While there are some million dollar homes listed for sale, the homes that are really selling are ones listed at $500k and below. That end of the market is really driving the sales.
Lots of activity at Woodburn Village these days. As Woodburn Village has been discovered as a great investment, buyers have been flocking to the community driving prices up. One recent listing had more than 5 offers – most reasonable priced ones get at least multiple. The inventory is low though – only 2 homes selling on average per month.
The two bedroom (1.5ba) homes are now selling up towards $170,000 – they used to be in the $150′s earlier this year. Rents have also gone up with those units renting for about $1,450 now. Hence, while the investor ratio is not as good as last year, it is still one of the best in the area (about breaking even with 20% down.)
Tysons West is a new development adjacent to the Tyson West metro stop on the new Silver Line through Tysons Corner. The property was formerly occupied by the Moore/Cadillac/Hummer dealership. The project will include urban Walmart, 24-hour fitness, a renovated Sheraton Premier Hotel and a variety of other restaurants, offices, retail and residential rental units.
The location is of course fantastic – right next to the metro stop and Dulles Toll road puts you within easy reach of Washington DC, Dulles Airport, I-66, I-495 and not to mention Tysons Corner Mall. The project started in 2011 and is scheduled for completion in 2013 – the same time the new Silver Line is scheduled to open.
- 250,000 sq/ft Retail/office in phase 1
- 300-400 residential rental units
- 440+ hotel rooms (already existing)
