In my most recent Just Listed column, I had said that we were adding new listings at about the same rate they were going under contract. I would like to amend that now and just say what a lot of agents have been feeling for the past couple of weeks — the market has slowed a bit.
Only 15 properties went from a pending to sold status last week. That is down by about 50 percent from the week prior. In Reston, that’s not a catastrophe but it is something to be aware of as you think about buying and selling over the summer.
For buyers, it may signal that you can be a little more aggressive in your offers. For sellers, it may mean that this is not the time to push the market in terms of pricing. Here are a few that sold this past week.
- 11604 QUAIL RIDGE CT. Listed at $849,000. Sold at $840,000
- 12160 ABINGTON HALL PL #201. Listed at $425,000. Sold at $425,000
- 2225 GUNSMITH SQ. Listed at $389,900, Sold at $385,000
- 2283 HUNTERS RUN DR. Listed at $319,900. Sold at $308,000
As always, if you maintain awareness of the real market for your home and price it there, you will be rewarded with a quick sale at a great price.

Chris Green is one of the DMV’s finest fitness instructors. A Lululemon and South Block ambassador, he is a coach and mentor to so many. He embodies grace, positivity and motivation in ways that no one else can. If we could all learn a thing or two from him, the world would be a much better place. He does so much for others, and does so with a smile on his face 99% of the time.
He recently ruptured his Achilles and has an incredibly long and tough journey ahead. As if COVID hadn’t impacted fitness professionals enough, throw this in the mix and it’s a double, even triple whammy. CG is no longer able to work and do what he loves for the time being because of this and we’d love your support.
