“Basically, the horrific weather we had really messed with the real estate market,” Couts said. “People didn’t want to look at houses, and people hoping to sell weren’t prepared to put them on the market yet. But April is shaping up nicely, with lots of new housing coming up.”
There were just 70 new listings in March in Annandale (zip code 22003), compared to 85 in March 2013. Thirty-nine units sold last month, compared to 45 during the same month a year ago.
The dollar volume of homes sold was about $16.6 million in March 2014, down nearly 24 percent from $21.8 million in March 2013.
The average price of units sold last month was $49,414, a 12.15 percent decline from a year ago. That likely reflects the fact that while the number of attached units sold last month was the same as the number sold in March 2013, the number of detached houses fell 21.4 percent.
