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.
Welcome to historic Old Town, Alexandria. Founded in 1749, Old Town is a place rich with colonial charm. This is the heart of the City of Alexandria. Going back in time, one might have caught a glimpse of a middle-aged George Washington riding his horse up to Christ Church on the corner of Washington and Cameron Streets. Years later, Old Town became the childhood home of famed Confederate General Robert E. Lee. A slew of other notable names from both Virginian and American History add to Old Town's lore.
Located on the western bank of the Potomac River, Old Town played an important role in the growth of our nation. It is no surprise that Old Town grew to prominence as a well-traveled port city under both British and U.S. rule. Like the rest of the communities in the City of Alexandria, the development of Old Town is tied closely to its proximity to the nation's capital.
Since the colonial period, Old Town has established itself as diverse cultural center and bastion of American trade, commerce, and industry.
Old Town brings you to the doorstep of colorful row houses on tree-lined streets dotted with gas lamps and cobblestone walks. Old Town is a desirable place to call home for those with an active social calendar. A wide variety of restaurants, coffee shops, art galleries, as well as boutique and retail stores, leave plenty to the imagination and ample opportunity to enjoy the finer things in life. Walk down to the Potomac and enjoy the fireworks on the Fourth of July, or bundle up for the holiday tree lighting in December. An Old Town resident would be hard-pressed to run out of things to do.
Old Town is located just south of D.C. and occupies the southernmost part of the City of Alexandria. Route 1 and the George Washington Parkway (Washington Street) run through Old Town, while Washington's Beltway, I-495 is seconds away.
