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.
The area takes its name from a post-Civil War era fort constructed near the banks of the Potomac River that was intended to compliment the defenses of Washington, DC with Ft. Washington on the opposite side of the river. Ft. Hunt was even home to a top secret military intelligence operation during World War II. While no shots were ever fired in anger, the remains of the facility are the centerpiece of the sprawling Ft. Hunt Park. The George Washington Parkway is a beautiful ribbon of road that runs through the community towards George Washington’s Mt. Vernon to the south, offering incredible vistas of the Potomac River. There are beautiful communities of primarily single family detached homes to the west of the Parkway, including Hollin Hills, a neighborhood of roughly 450 homes designed by Charles Goodman immediately after World War II. It is considered a landmark of contemporary design.
Parks, scenic vistas of the Potomac River and the walking and biking trail that runs from Mt. Vernon to Rosslyn right through Ft. Hunt are the anchors for this beautiful community. While there a handful of townhomes, almost every dwelling is a detached home, ranging from 1950's construction to magnificent new homes overlooking the river. And the incredible variety of shops and restaurants of Old Town are just minutes away up the Parkway.
There’s no better drive in the metropolitan area than the beautiful George Washington Parkway. By design, there are no traffic lights, no billboards and no trucks or commercial traffic allowed. Any drive to or from work that includes a stretch on the Parkway makes the rest of the trip more bearable. The area is well-served by bus routes as well, filtering to the Huntington Metro stop, as well as direct routes to the Pentagon.
