A Look Back (and Forward) on What’s Happening in the Reston Real Estate Market

It’s time for a Reston real estate market update! All segments of the Reston real estate market have shown exceptional gains during the first portion of this year’s market. As measured against any previous year, the growth is extraordinary.

The graphs below show Reston whole market data for single-family homes and townhomes in the first three quarters of 2021 and 2022.



Also included in the graphs shown above is current Reston whole market data for single-family homes and townhomes. Sales of new construction are not included in data presented for Reston townhomes as that would not provide an accurate picture of market conditions.

Where is the Reston Real Estate Market Headed?

As our economy emerges from the pandemic, there are current market conditions and factors that will put the brakes on this growth.

We can see from the data that there is an increase in the current average number of days on the market. This increase can be attributed to a lag in data primarily because sold data takes several months to post. Home sellers may look at prices that were achieved during the intensity of the market that occurred earlier in the year and use that to base their home price. However, buyers are now reluctant to pay those prices. Interest rates have also been rapidly rising, which cools the market.

We do not anticipate the Reston market giving back all of the impressive gains, though. While the market will soften, we expect there will be continued demand for housing in our thriving community.
