Top 11 home sales of 2014 in Williamsburg VA

This time of year it’s always interesting to look back and review the most expensive homes sold in the Williamsburg VA area.

In 2014 there were 11 single family homes which sold for $1,000,000 or more in the Williamsburg area. ( note I am including nearby Charles City) A slight increase from the same period a year before where nine homes sold for over a million dollars

While multi-million dollar price tags create oohs and aahs, it’s nothing more than a price tag until it’s sold. Four out of the top ten most expensive home sales in 2014 were in the Kingsmill Community. The average discount from list price on the 11 homes was 10% from list price, ( although that doesn’t count data from homes that are relisted so the real number is below that. The average sale price per square foot for the top ten list was $361 per square foot. Unlike the Washington DC area where 266 homes sold for $5 million or more last year. Our median selling price for the top 10 home sales was $1.250,000. Aside from the $3.4 million home sale the other homes ranged in price from $1 million to $1.8 million.

In 2014 the highest dollar transaction for a home sale in the Williamsburg VA area was $3.4 million dollars for a waterfront estate located on the James River in Charles City County.

By neighborhood Kingsmill was the leader on the list with four of the top 11 transactions. Fords Colony, Governors Land and Riverview Plantation each had one on the list.

Back to #1 on the list, initially listed at $5.4 million the spectacular 146 acre waterfront retreat on the James River included 1.5 miles of riverfront. The  5,000 square foot , 4 bedroom, 5 bath home offered water views from all of it’s rooms.  Outdoor features included a pool, dock, recreation pavilion & walking trails . An aerial photo is below…

image

Tied for second place on the list were homes in Kingsmill and Fords Colony.   The 8000 square foot  home at 324 Dogleg was the personal home of Dick and Dorothea Ford the developers of Fords Colony.   Where most of the lots in Fords Colony are half an acre in size this home sat on almost five acres with views of 4 holes of golf and water.  Originally listed for for $2,395,000 the home sold for $1,800,000 after 284 days on the market. This lot and home were truly one of a kind.

Tied for #2 at $1.8 million was this 8800 square foot home in Kingsmill’s Sandy Fort Neighborhood. Sited on a rolling private one+ acre lot it overlooks a scenic easement that backed to Carter Grove Country Road.

#3  on the list with a sales price of $1,670,000 was an historic property in Charles City. Burlington Plantation was built in 1818

After 1859 the property passed to John Mumford Gregory, a member of the
Virginia House of Delegates and Governor of Virginia for a short time during the civil
war. The property included 260 acres land on Mapsico Creek, Outbuildings included a smokehouse, ice house four car garage, caretakers cottage and more.

 

109 greens way#4 on the list was this 7000 square foot home in the Brownings Grant section of Kingsmill. Built in 2008 by Joel Sheppard . The home sold for $1,3000,000 after being listed for $4.499.000

#5 on the list with a sales price of $1.250.000 was this waterfront home in Charles City County just across the Rt five bridge on John Tyler Hgwy. If you look to the left when you are crossing the bridge you will see the home.

The home sits at the mouth of the Chickahominy River and enjoys amazing sunrise and sunset on the James River.image

#6 on the list at a selling price of $1,150,000 was another waterfront home. This one located in the Riverview Plantation neighborhood on the York River. The home was built in 2008 replacing the sellers previous home.

Watch for the remainder of the list later this week..

Who sells more real estate in Williamsburg VA ?

December  2014-The numbers are in for November 2014 in the Williamsburg VA real estate market. While it was a close race way back in 2012 for market share in the month of November 2014 our office (Liz Moore and Associates) has a commanding lead in market share with over 18% of the market. Our listings and sales were almost equal to combined sales of Kingsmill Realty, Fords Colony Realty, Twiddy Realty, Coldwell Banker Traditions, Century 21 Nachman Realty, and ReMax Capital, who were the 6th-10th placed brokerages in town.

image

Note sales number above are from the Williamsburg Area Assoc of Realtors (WAAR) MLS numbers,  It reflects sales for Residential real estate : (Single Family Detach, Attached/Condo/Townhome, Condo, Townhouse), Lots and Land: within the zip codes of 23188,23185 and 23168.

 

An important trend to study is how market share is shifting in our market. From the chart below we can see that only three brokerages are increasing their Williamsburg VA market share. Liz Moore and Associates, Kingsmill Realty and Twiddy. The remaining seven of the top ten brokerages are experiencing a drop in market share that ranges from 4.86% to almost 15%.

How is the real estate market in Williamsburg ? April 2014

We are almost halfway through 2014 and the Williamsburg VA real estate market is moving along strongly. Although we show 6.9 months of inventory in the Williamsburg market that’s a little deceiving. Some of that is proposed construction. Homes that are priced right and in good condition are selling quickly. We have seen a few homes recently with multiple offers within a few days of being listed..

Interest rates remain low  We expect this trend to continue for the next several months.  Right now our biggest issue is finding houses to sell.

If you’re a Williamsburg home owner who has been wondering if it might finally be time to sell, email John@MrWilliamsburg.com and we can prepare a complimentary analysis of market value for you – you just may be pleasantly surprised.
