D.C. area condo sales up 34% in 2009

Washington Business Journal – by Sarah Krouse, Staff Reporter Condominium sales in the Washington area jumped 34 percent in 2009 with a total of 2,350 units sold, fueled by the first time home buyer’s tax credit, low interest rates and the creation of high paying jobs in the region. Loudoun and Prince William counties led the area with 707 sales, followed by the District with 524 condo sales, according to Delta Associates’ year-end report. There were 439 sales in Arlington and Alexandria, 273 units sold in Montgomery County and 202 condo sales in Fairfax County and Falls Church with an average sales pace of three units per month. The surge in Washington area sales in 2009 brought the region’s inventory-to-sale ratio, or the pace it would take to deplete the current supply of condos for sale, down to 2.6 years compared to 5.9 years at the end of 2008.
