Alexandria - Alexandria West
The following charts track four leading market indicators, and are updated on or about the 10th of every month. “New Pendings” shows the number of contracts ratified each month and is the best indication of the direction of the market. And please note that it is not unusual to see significant monthly change, both up and down, in the Average Sales Price chart. We use zip codes as the basis for these indicators to ensure there are sufficient data to make the charts relevant. While all of these indicators are important, the best way to determine the value of a specific property is a thorough market analysis by a McEnearney Associate.
Alexandria West evolved from sleepy farmland during colonial times into a thriving, close-in suburban community of detached homes, townhouses, and condominiums today. Tucked inside the Beltway and just north and west of I-95, the busiest north-south commuter corridor into Washington, DC, the Alexandria West community is a commuter’s dream. There’s easy access to DC, the Pentagon, Crystal City and the new Corps of Engineers headquarters at Mark Center.
