    • A Quick update on our Spring babies
      Time for a quick update on our spring babies! We’ve currently got a dozen lambs so far in the Historic Area, with more on the way. Six ewes are still due to have little ones over the next few weeks – so keep an eye out for more lambs! When I went out to visit our...Read More »
    • Susan Higginson Nash: Pioneer Interior Decorator for the Restoration
      A stylish female figure can be seen in many photographs documenting the architectural team who undertook the restoration of Williamsburg’s historic district.

    • Finding Tranquil Spaces
      The historic area in the spring can be a little hectic. Between the excited school groups who are happily (and let’s face it, loudly) learning about our nation’s history, the gorgeous and varied dogs on DoG street, and the many other guests here to take in the beautiful weather and bright flowers… it can get...Read More »
    • Becoming Mrs. Washington: Martha the Mom
      Before she was Mrs. Washington, Martha was Mrs. Custis. It’s well known that Martha and George Washington were not blessed with any children of their own during their 40-year marriage (theories abound…we’ll get to that another time). Martha did have four children, though, during her first marriage to Daniel Parke Custis. This period of Martha’s...Read More » […]

      Imagine being welcomed through the gates of the Governor’s Palace for an evening of drink, dancing, and delightful diversions. Now imagine everyone—you included—is suitably attired for their 18th-century personas. Then sprinkle in some fireworks.

How is the real estate market in Williamsburg Virginia ? August 2015

When looking at sales statistics for any market you really need to drill down into the specific price range to gain an in depth understanding of what is happening. As you can see in the chart below depending on the price range closed sales, number of homes on the market and pending sales are drastically different within the various price bands. These number reflect sales in the 23188, 23188 and 23168 zip codes which cover the areas of City of Williamsburg, James City County, Upper York County and the Toano areas. How is the real estate market in Williamsburg Virginia ? August 2015

Does it seem like there aren’t many homes on the market ? That is a result of a dearth of listings. The number of homes on the market is down almost 30% over last year in the $200-$250k price range and between 9% and 160% in the $250k to $600k price ranges.  As a result of low inventory overall sales are down slightly (3%) from last year. But sales in the 350-400k range are up 30.8% and 50% in the $600k to $750k range.

Home sellers and buyers are basically on an  equal footing when supply equals demand. The magic number, many housing experts say, is six.

As in, "it’ll take six months to sell all the homes now on the market at the current pace of sales."

In Williamsburg we are basically there in the under $400k market. Above that we still have a ways to go with inventories ranging from 10 months of supply in the $500-$600k range and as high as 22 months in the $750k + price range.

One last note I am happy to report. Although sales for the year are down slightly in the overall Williamsburg VA real estate market our company ( Liz Moore and Associates) continues to lead the market in sales. Our companies sales are up 38% over last year. We lead the area in sales and sell one in six homes in the market.
