Neighborhood Market guide Zillow predicts 20171 home values will increase 0.2% next year, compared to a 0.1% increase for Herndon as a whole. Among 20171 homes, this home is 136.6% more expensive than the midpoint (median) home, but is priced 28.7% less per square foot.  Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In 20171, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 82.1% lower than in Herndon, and 95.2% less than the national average. This lower local number could help 20171 home values rise more quickly than other regions in Herndon.

Posted on June 10, 2015 by Corey Hart Half of May sales were on market less than two weeks; Closed sales up 6 percent from last year Rockville, MD – (June 10, 2015) – The following analysis of the Washington, D.C. Metro Area housing market has been prepared by Elliot Eisenberg, Ph.D. of RealEstate Business Intelligence (RBI) and is based on May 2015 MRIS housing data. OVERVIEW The Washington DC Metro housing market enjoyed a strong May with sales at the highest monthly level since June 2014, pending sales and prices at the highest May level in a decade, while median days-on-market remain exceptionally low. Closed sales of 4,835 increased by 6.2% from May 2014 and by 13.3% from April 2015. The number of new contracts increased by 8.4% from May 2014 to 6,158, although new contracts did drop slightly from last month’s 6,203, which was the highest number of pending sales since July 2005. All market segments experienced year-over-year increases in both closed sales and new contracts, with townhomes having the strongest increases of 15.3% and 10.2% respectively. Year-over-year, overall median sales prices rose by 1.2% to $435,000, with the median sales price for townhomes rising to $427,000 and single-family detached and condos declining to $540,000 and $307,000 respectively. Click here to view PDF version of this report Inventories are at their highest May level since 2011 and new listings are at their highest May level since 2007, but because new contracts are at their highest May level in a decade and closed sales remain well above historical averages, days-on-market remain significantly below historical averages and median sales prices are at their second-highest level since June 2007. CLOSED SALES Year-over-year sales continue strong growth, all segments exhibit year-over-year growth for third consecutive month. Year-over-year closed sales increased by 6.2% or 285 sales in May 2015, the sixth consecutive month of year-over-year increases. There were a total of 4,835 sales, which exceeds both the 5-year average of 4,574 and the 10-year average of 4,524. For the period January through May, the number of closed sales of 18,459 is up 11% compared to last year. For the third consecutive month, all market segments showed growth in closed sales year-over-year. This month, townhome sales rose the most, 15.3% or 169 units to 1,274. Single-family detached sales increased by 5.2% or 115 units to 2,309, and condo sales were nearly flat with a one unit increase over last year to 1,252. Compared to the prior month of April 2015, overall sales are up by 567 units or 13.3%, with single-family detached experiencing a 19.2% increase, townhomes at a 12.3% increase and condos showing a 4.8% increase. NEW CONTRACTS Highest number of May pending sales in over a decade. The number of new contracts increased 8.4% from May of 2014 to a total of 6,158. New contracts have now risen year-over-year for seven consecutive months, and for the last four months all market segments demonstrated year-over-year increases. There was a slight decrease in new contracts of 0.7% or 45 units compared to last month, which had been the highest level since July 2005. May contracts exceeded both the 5-year average of 5,778 and the 10-year average of 5,136. Townhomes showed the largest year-over-year increase at 10.2% or 145 units, followed by single-family detached with a 10% increase or 278 units, and condos with a 3.4% increase or 51 units. PRICES May prices at highest May level in a decade, townhome prices up slightly year-over-year, single-family detached and condos down slightly. The median sales price of $435,000, was the highest May level in at least a decade and the highest monthly level since June 2013. This represented a $5,000 or 1.2% increase over May 2014, and an $18,000 or 4.3% increase over last month. Market segment activity was mixed, with townhome median sales price up by 1.7% to $427,000, while condo prices slipped 1% to $307,000 and single-family detached declined 2.3% to $540,000. Sales volume across the region was more than $2.5 billion, up 19.3% compared to May 2014. Jurisdictional price changes in the region were also mixed. The following jurisdictions saw price declines: Falls Church City saw an 8.3% decline in median sales price to $708,750 on 20 sales, a 25% increase over last year; Arlington County saw a 1.9% decrease in the median sales price to $560,000 with a 7.4% decrease in the number of sold listings to 287 compared to 2014; Montgomery County saw a median sales price decline of 3.7% to $415,000 on 1,215 sales, an increase of 10.2% over last year. Jurisdictions showing an increase in median price were: Washington D.C with a 5.7% increase to $560,000 on 755 sales, a 2.7% decrease over last year; Alexandria City, with a 10% increase in median sales price to $522,500 on 272 sales, a 6.7% increase over 2014; Fairfax City with a 22.5% jump in median sales price to $520,500 on 36 sales, up from 25 last year; and Fairfax County with a 4.6% increase in median sales price to $497,000 on 1,527 sales, up 9.7% compared to last year. Prince Georges County also saw strong price gains, increasing 13.5% to $244,000 on 723 sales, a 7.3% increase over last year. For the year-to-date, all jurisdictions show price gains compared to 2014 except for Montgomery County, which is down less than one percent, and all jurisdictions show an increase in closed sales. This month, distressed sales across the region were 8.6% of all sales, compared to 11% last month and 8.8% last year. The 266 foreclosures and 149 short sales that closed this month were mostly in Prince George’s County (192) and Montgomery County (118). INVENTORIES May inventories at second highest level in 42 months, new listings at second highest level in five years, DOM remain low. Active listings continue to rise and have now increased from the prior year for 20 consecutive months. There were 12,083 active listings at the end of May, which is a 15.8% increase from last year and an 11.3% increase over last month. Condo inventory growth continues to lead, with a 21.0% increase in the number of active condo listings to 3,102. The number of townhome listings is up 20.8% to 2,185 and single-family detached listings are up 12.2% to 6,796. The largest number of active listings are in Fairfax County with 4,256 properties listed, followed by Montgomery County with 3,330. The overall number of new listings is at 8,271, a 3.6% increase or 295 more than last year. New listings for townhomes increased by the largest percentage, at 10.5% or 190 units to 1,992, followed by single-family detached at 2.2% or 89 units to 4,235 and condos by 0.8% or 16 units to 2,044. New listings are down by 438 or 5% compared to April 2015. At 12 days, the median days-on-market (DOM) increased by one day year-over-year, but has dropped from 14 days in April 2015. Median days-on-market remains lower than the 5-year April average of 16 days and the 10-year average of 24 days. Single-family detached homes have a median DOM of 12 compared to 16 days last month and 12 days last year. Townhomes have a median DOM of 10 days, compared to 11 days last month and 8 days last year. Condos are at 15 DOM, compared to 17 last month and 15 last year.

Keys for Buying and Selling when the Market is slow

It’s a whole new world for home sellers. So, how do you make your house stand out so it will sell when sales are slow?
Price your home correctly. When mortgage rates are low and buyers are chasing too few houses for sale, sellers can ask high prices and get them. Even when houses are overpriced for the market, sellers are likely to receive some offers, as buyers are often desperate to find a home that meets their needs.
But, when things are slow, pricing is absolutely critical. Instead of pricing your home aggressively high or low, you should consider pricing your home no higher than the middle of the range for homes comparable to yours. And if you need to sell your home quickly, consider pricing your home in the bottom 25 percent of comparable homes. Why? With few buyers chasing many homes, you need to quickly get the attention of those who are serious about buying. If your home is priced too high, you many never get buyers to even consider looking at your home.

Home Improvements and Which Ones to Do

Whether you plan to sell in the near future, or just want to improve the value of your home, here is one low cost improvement you should consider.
Paint the interior. If you haven’t painted in 10 years or more, your ceiling is probably looking dull and the colors on your walls are out of style.
New home owners have a tendency to use the same color throughout most of their house. That color is usually white, or another neutral color. You can increase the value of your home by choosing more contemporary colors, oftentimes selecting more vibrant colors for at least a few rooms in your home. Freshly painted ceilings will brighten your home.

Refined Dining
S
 This dining room, full of Spanish-influenced details, is part of a larger open-concept room that includes the living room and gallery hall. “Shaba Derazi, [currently with Young & Meathe Custom Homes] was the project manager and his input and guidance were invaluable,” says Coleman. “He worked with me on many of the interior custom design features of the home.”
 The walls are drywall with a skim coat of plaster over them to resemble the original stucco walls of vintage Spanish construction. Painted a soft beige, they provide a subtle background for the contrasting deep wood and wrought iron accents. Four pecky cypress beams highlight the thirteen-foot ceiling in the entire great room area. Carved, heavy, ten-foot doors in the dining room are mahogany and were purchased through No Mas!, a company that designs and imports Mexican art objects. And Coleman says the doors to the left and right of the sideboard, were carved by a seventy-year-old Mexican woman. “All the other doors in the home were custom designed by William T. Baker and myself,” she says. “An example is the beautiful dark-wood-framed, glass-paned arched door leading to the courtyard from the dining area.” The wrought iron chandelier, well sized for the high ceilings, has a match in the living room area and both were sourced from California-based Arte de Mexico.
 The arched niche is a traditional architectural design element of the Spanish Colonial Revival style. The sideboard, a rich dark wood that is typical of the style, was purchased in an antique store and nests perfectly in the space. The mirror above was custom-made. Two sconces, which also appear in other areas of the home, are reminiscent of early Spanish candleholders. And the tile floors throughout the entire dining room, living room, and gallery hallway are travertine with chiseled edges.
 The dining room table is a double pedestal table that the owners brought with them to this home, but the antique wooden chairs were purchased separately. “The host and hostess chairs were designed and upholstered in fabric from Lewis & Sheron Textiles by my upholsterer, Miquel Moreno of Custom Slipcover & Upholstery,” says Coleman. “They add a soft and plush feel to the dining area.”
Baker says that the owners wanted a dressy-casual family home that would fit their lifestyle. “They wanted the home to be comfortable for when it was just the two of them, and to function perfectly when it was full of family or friends, or when they hosted a major corporate event,” he explains. “The Spanish Colonial Revival style lends itself well to all of these needs. From relaxing and casual to formal or elegant, the design is exactly suited to what the Colemans were looking for.”

A Modern Home with Old-World Ambience
Sharon Coleman was raised in Southern California and always had a deep love of Spanish-influenced architecture. When she moved to Atlanta, Georgia and decided to make it her permanent home, she wanted to design and build a house that was reminiscent of the homes she grew up with on the West Coast. Coleman and her husband researched styles with dominant Spanish features and found that in early twentieth-century America, George Washington Smith, an architect, was the “father” of the style home they loved—Spanish Colonial Revival.
 This style of home became popular in California during the 1920s following their display in the 1915 Panama-California Exposition. The homes were a catalog of styles unified by the use of arches, courtyards, plain stucco or plaster walls, and tile roofs—all derived from the Mediterranean world of architecture. The new style was named Spanish Colonial Revival and was in abundant demand until the Great Depression.
 The Spanish Colonial Revival style had been enthusiastically adopted by Santa Barbara, California, so the Colemans traveled there to complete their research. They took photos and studied exterior and interior features. Soon afterward, Coleman consulted with Leah Bailey, ASID, then lead designer of Atlanta-based Pineapple House Interior Design, and with architect William T. Baker of Atlanta-based William T. Baker and Associates, who helped her realize her dream for the entire 12,000-square-foot home. According to Baker, the owners wanted an old-world feel throughout the house. “Special arched openings and hand-carved wood doors lend a feel of centuries to this new-construction house,” he explains. “Many of the accents and furnishings look as though they could be from an original villa in Madrid.”
The Spanish Colonial Revival Style emphasizes many Spanish-influenced details. Arches, stucco surfaces, built-in niches and alcoves, intricately carved dark woods, wrought iron accents, and tile are among the most prominent.
