CNN ran a story today about the return of the pocket listings in hot housing markets. With the market being as hot as it is in Northern Virginia buyer agents use all the tricks they know to find properties not listed in the MRIS.
I wrote a story about pocket listings last year ( Does A Pocket Listing Line Your Pocket ) and why they are almost always a bad idea for sellers:
A typical seller will be put at a monetary disadvantage by not exposing the home to as many purchasers as possible from the start. By the law of supply and a demand, a pocket listing would on average sell for less than one that was available for all to see and make an offer on. In my view a general pocket listing policy by a real estate brokerage a-la “we only allow in-brokerage sales of our listings the first 7 days” is unethical. The problem is when it is the listing brokerage that pushes for the pocket listing for their own gain – a pocket listing initiated by a client (for whatever reason) I don’t really see any issue with.
We just listed a great single family home for sale in Woodbridge, Virginia. It is a renovated 3br/1.5ba detached home with granite counters, stainless steel appliances, tile floors and a gourmet cooking range (gas.) The home has two levels with the lower level being walkout to a rear patio. The rear patio overlooks a large treed backyard. The backyard is fenced and has a shed. There is ample parking available in the driveway and on the street in front of the home. Central A/C for upstairs. There is potential for another room with a window in the basement. Being sold As-Is.
The government is meddling in the housing market again. According to the administration, the housing rebound is “leaving too many people people behind, including young people looking to buy their first homes and individuals with credit records weakened by the recession.”
In response, administration officials say “they are working to get banks to lend to a wider range of borrowers by taking advantage of taxpayer-backed programs — including those offered by the Federal Housing Administration — that insure home loans against default.
The market in Fairfax County Virginia is doing great in 2012. The number of transactions are down slightly for 2012 keeping inventory low in most areas. The prices have held up well and increased some in many areas thanks to low interest rates and good employment opportunities.
A lot of the attention in real estate has been towards distressed sales the last few years. While foreclosures and short-sales never really ruined the market in Fairfax County, some local areas did see values decimated by distressed sales after the 2006 real estate crash.

The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors has approved the Capital One plans for a mixed use development on their existing 26 acre campus next to I-495 and Rt 123 (Chain Bridge Road.) The planned development is next to the new McLean Metro station and the Gates of McLean condominium community.
The project will add another 12 high-rise buildings to the site with 3.1 million sq/ft of office space, two hotels and up to 1230 new residential units. There would also be 4.8 acres of parks/greenspace (including a playing field.) A 9,000 sq/ft gym within a 30,000 sq/ft community center is also planned. Read the rest of this entry »
As we wrote about last year, Walmart is coming to Tysons West in 2013. It is next to the new metro stop on the Silver Line through Tysons Corner. There is no exact date for the opening of the Walmart - deliveries for office locations have been indicated to be early 2013 so hopefully by the summer.
The urban style Walmart will be about 78,000 sq/ft. For comparison – the new “urban style” Target in Merrifield is about 163,000 square feet. So, this new Walmart is half the size of that Target – not a monstrosity by any measure. Read the rest of this entry »
As part of a broad effort to strengthen the Federal Housing Administration’s (FHA) Mutual Mortgage Insurance Fund (MMI Fund), FHA Commissioner Carol Galante announced a series of changes to be issued this week that will allow the agency to better manage risk and further strengthen the health of the MMI Fund.
“These are essential and appropriate measures to manage and protect FHA’s single-family insurance programs” said Galante. “In addition to protecting the MMI Fund, these changes will encourage the return of private capital to the housing market, and make sure FHA remains a vital source of affordable and sustainable mortgage financing for future generations of American homebuyers.” Read the rest of this entry »
