Question: How did the real estate market in the City of Alexandria for the 3rd quarter of 2020 compare to 2019?

Answer: As we discussed back in July, the first half of the year saw a significant impact on Alexandria’s real estate market from the COVID-19 pandemic. After a solid start from January 1 to March 15, contract activity dropped off 13% through the end of June. Decreases were greatest through April and almost “normal” by mid-May. Activity in June actually surpassed 2019 and that growth has increased significantly through the third quarter of this year.

Overall contract activity in the City of Alexandria increased 33.3% in the 3rd quarter of 2020 compared to the 3rd quarter of 2019. As the chart above indicates, homes priced $300,000-$749,999 saw the most significant increases by quantity, but the number of contracts for homes priced $1+ million has more than doubled in that time period.

If we look more closely at contract activity by property type, the most significant increase was for attached homes which includes townhomes and duplexes — up 64.6% for the third quarter. Detached homes are the smallest part of the Alexandria market. The modest increase of 5.2% may have been held down by lack of inventory, not lack of demand. Contract activity for condos in Alexandria City also saw a sizeable increase of 26.5%.

Despite the market contraction brought on by COVID-19 in the spring, contract activity has come back strong. Inventory is low and we expect to see very tight supply for the foreseeable future, which is great for sellers and a bit challenging for buyers. That tight supply will put upward pressure on home prices.

Question: Two-Way Street — Interviewing Each Other

Answer: Not looking for love, not looking for a forever commitment, but also not simply looking for a vacuum cleaner either… critical decisions await.

Out of the blue, we realtors all get phone calls from phone numbers we don’t recognize and hear previously unheard voices asking for a meeting to possibly list their property.

And, we begin… preliminary questions batted softly back and forth with sellers checking that they have identified the perfect agent for their special home and, though it is sometimes not realized, agents are digging into whether someone might just be testing the market without the intention of actually using our skills to sell properties.

Why would sellers ever do that, you ask… humans have lots of reasons to take actions… maybe there is a potential split coming in the household and one party wants to have a plan put together; maybe greedy heirs are fussing with each other and may never agree on listing terms or division of proceeds; maybe a job transfer is possible and a seller only wants data for negotiating a corporate buy-out; or other reasons.

Listening is important for all parties. Make an appointment to talk without distractions — either on the phone, in person or via ZOOM. Just the other day an out-of-town seller started what ended up being a two-part, serious conversation first calling from her car while stuck in traffic with twin 3-year olds in the back seat. Those little ones were bouncing around vociferously while she was trying to have me sell Grandma’s home in Rosemont. Calmer times prevailed after nap time and we now have information exchanged and a plan for January 2021!

Two weeks ago, again listening was critical… a tough break-up had left the house half-furnished and two horses soon to be homeless. This was a case where I had to bow out, let the spouse sort many, many issues out first, and offer to meet again in six to twelve months.

Then, a beloved couple in Old Town told me upfront that they only wanted a price or market analysis so that some neighbors could purchase it from them, having always loved their home. Jump ahead three weeks, when the friends declined the opportunity and I was unexpectedly signed on as their listing agent, did intense historical research, heavy marketing and received five lovely contracts from the broad market. You just never know.

And, finally, just when you think this business is simply transactional and transient, I got a call from a client wanting to switch lifestyles from a cool, three-level townhouse to upscale one-level living. He was serious and, within weeks, we sold his home and contracted for a classy condo.

As we sat, socially-distanced at back-to-back settlements last week, we laughed when counting that these represented our Settlements #7 and #8 for him, finally beating out my other long-haulers, who have maxed out at 7 settlements, for now!

Stories for everything indeed, but the matching of experience, energy and true interest in selling, makes a successful match. Listen carefully to each other, ask lots of questions, both directions, and work toward creating a team effort to happily, smoothly head toward settlement.

To learn more about this article and relevant market news, contact Ann at 301-367-5098 or email [email protected]. You may also submit your questions to McEnearney Associates via email for response in future columns.

Question: What is the top contributor to household wealth?

Answer: The top contributor to wealth in the United States IS homeownership, according to the National Association of REALTORS®. Unsure of taking your statistics from a trade organization? Well, U.S. Census researchers found that the biggest determinants of household wealth are owning a home, followed by a retirement account.

Visit the most recent “Survey of Consumer Finances” conducted every three years (last in 2019) by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System — a federal agency and HQ of the nation’s central bank. They’re tasked with surveying the public to gain an understanding of the financial condition of U.S. households and to study the effects of our ever-changing economy. They consistently share data that the net worth of a homeowner is more than 40x greater than that of a renter!

No matter where you look, the data unwaveringly shows that buying starts most consumers on a path toward financial freedom. Of course, there are other ways — but buying property “forces” an owner into saving. As a homeowner makes their mortgage payment each month, they slowly realize gains in equity. While markets do ebb and flow, holding a property for long enough also means realizing gains in equity as values rise.

But, buying a home can be ridiculously challenging in our region. A buyer must go in with eyes wide open and a good strategy to make the most of this herculean effort. The good news? Buying is not impossible. The equity gains and tax write-offs start early on in ownership and continue. Plus, in a pandemic year when people want more control of their space, it may now even be among the strategies for staying healthier — who knew that would be a benefit of homeownership?

So, what does a buying strategy look like? The founder of McEnearney Associates, John McEnearney said that the three most important things to consider when buying are: Location, location, location. Buy where others want to buy or where you see upward trends. Yes, that means competition, but once in, it means greater gains.

Look at Alexandria and Arlington right now — the “Amazon Effect” has made inventory a trickle of what it once was (in fact, to look at it graphically, the stranglehold following the November 2018 announcement about HQ2 is very obvious). There’s a mad scramble of contract activity for good property. Imagine throwing breadcrumbs into an over-crowded duck pond and be careful not to lose your hand!

Start by meeting with a good realtor and locally-based loan officer (personally, I believe in the power of referrals to locally-based businesses — ask friends and family who they used). Read, listen and learn. Buying a home is a process, like anything else, and there are LOTS of moving parts.

Carefully analyze your income. Consider not only the mortgage, but potential maintenance or repair costs and rising utility and property tax costs. When meeting with a loan officer, instead of asking what you’re approved to purchase, back into the numbers — share what you’re comfortable paying monthly and then see what that, paired with your down payment, will buy you.

Think about your lifestyle… Consider commuting options and travel along with nearby major arteries/transportation hubs. While traffic is less than it used to be, it’s still a big factor. Do you like to be closer to the city and able to mosey over to the local coffee shop to enjoy a socially-distant cup of java with friends? Maybe you enjoy birdsong while looking over a generous lawn and watching the sun rise and deer meander. Don’t buy where you’ll hate living — trust your instincts. Stats and facts are great, but you need to like living there and coming home to what makes you feel happy and restored.

I’ve heard it argued that buying means a loss of freedom — you can’t just pick up and go. What’s great about owning in Northern Virginia and the D.C. Metro area is that you often CAN just pick up and go. We’re in a very transient area — people come and go all the time — whether that means a need for short-term rentals, or the longer-term lease…

Contractors, military, state department, researchers and others move here regularly and need housing. What if the little condo you bought becomes a money-making investment for you while you channel your inner David Letterman and leave the big city for a fly-fishing adventure in Whitefish, Montana?

Buying is good. The process is hard, but worth it. It gives you options and financial freedom and that investment in your future is nearly priceless!

Question: What is it like being a new agent during COVID-19?

Answer: COVID has changed how every business operates and real estate is no different. From virtual open houses to Zoom listing appointments, the real estate industry has pivoted quickly in order to sustain business.

I am no stranger to pivoting. In March, I was working for The Atlantic magazine in live events. With an MBA in marketing, I had spent the last 10 years working in live events and sales alongside executives across the Fortune 500.

When COVID hit, we had to pivot our entire business model to virtual events in a matter of days. We went from producing 150+ events a year across the globe to having only a handful of virtual events on the books. A few weeks later, 67 of my colleagues and I were laid off.

While some may look at being laid off as a setback, I quickly realized that this was the time I had been waiting for. I had been considering a move to real estate for years, but just never thought I’d have the time to do it while working full time. Now, all I had was time. I gave myself a day to feel sad with my former colleagues, but then I got to work.

Licensing classes were held via Zoom and I had to work a little harder to connect with my classmates. We exchanged phone numbers and started texting to host virtual study sessions. We made it a point to check in with each other, to send each other practice test questions and to cheer each other on. That has been one of the most surprising things about getting into real estate. Although all agents compete with each other, there is a real desire to see each other succeed. A rising tide lifts all boats.

When it came time to take my exam, I had to wash my hands and have my temperature taken before entering the room. We were spaced out in the testing room so I would not come in contact with others. And of course, we wore masks. I actually had a potential COVID exposure and had to change my exam date while I waited out my quarantine. I looked at this as just more time to study.

Once I passed my exam it was time to meet with brokerages. Most every brokerage I contacted held their interviews via Zoom. It was a little challenging trying to connect on a screen, but we have all learned to adapt. I think the best part of this new Zoom-life is the humility it has brought us all.

I did interviews with my 2-year-old listening to Baby Shark in the background. We no longer have to pretend that we’re not a mom, or a wife, or a dog owner. The lines are blurred because we have to be all of those things at the same time while we work! On camera!

But even after never meeting in person, I knew McEnearney was the right choice. They took time to listen to me, showed me that they heard my value and understood what I was looking for. And that is exactly how I treat my clients. I listen. I show them that I heard them. And I deliver on what was promised.

Starting a new job remotely has its own funny quirks. I saw the office for the first time three weeks in. My broker, my mentor and myself laughed when we discovered we were all very tall in real life! I have to stop myself from feeling guilty for sending 100 really annoying emails with basic questions because there is no one’s office that I can just pop-in to ask. But we’re all in this together and everyone has been so helpful throughout the process.

I’ve really leaned into what I came into real estate already knowing. I know how to market digitally so I’ve translated those skills into creating a strong digital presence. I know how to use social media to build a brand. As a trained opera singer, I know how to perform, especially on camera. I’ve leaned into video platforms to connect with buyers and sellers when we can’t be in person.

What better time to start a new business than a global pandemic?

If you’re looking for a high-tech agent and want to learn more about how McEnearney has pivoted during COVID to keep our buyers and sellers safe, reach out to me!

It’s the end of a busy week in Alexandria.

This week, our top story was City Council’s decision to extend the state of emergency in the city until March 31, 2021. That means that by the spring the city will have been under a state of emergency for more than a year.

Council also approved a proposal adding Virginia Tech’s initials to the Potomac Yard Metro station. Now the name “Potomac Yard – VT” goes before the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority for final approval.

Evenings have been busy on the crime front, as there were calls for shots fired on Monday nightTuesday morning and Wednesday night.

Alexandria City Public Schools, on Friday, also sent out surveys to families regarding a phased reentry for in-person instruction, while reporting that 93% of students have checked into their online classes. Parents of younger students are complaining about too much screen time, and ACPS staff will present the School Board with an update on how the VirtualPLUS+ model is going in mid-October.

On Thursday, hundreds of residents honored late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg with a candlelight vigil.

Here are our top stories this week in Alexandria.
