January-to-April home sales in N.Va. on par with 2023 totals

Only 4 transactions separate the two years among major local jurisdictions

Just four home sales separated the first four months of 2024 from the same period in 2023, according to an analysis of sales data from Northern Virginia’s five most populous localities.

A total of 7,350 homes went to closing during the January-through-April period, according to a GazetteLeader analysis of data provided May 10 by Bright MLS, the region’s multiple-listing service.

That compares to 7,354 sales during the same period in 2023.

While the total among the five localities was flat, there was plenty of variety among individual jurisdiction:

• Transactions in Fairfax County totaled 3,237, down 0.3 percent from 3,247.

• Sales in Prince William County totaled 1,452, down 4.4 percent from 1,519.

• Closings in Loudoun County totaled 1,340, up 3.4 percent from 1,296.

• Sales in Arlington totaled 715, up 7.8 percent from 663.

• Consummated deals in Alexandria totaled 606, down 3.7 percent from 629.

The overall flat results in Northern Virginia were mirrored in the Mid-Atlantic region as a whole. In Bright MLS’s full coverage area (which includes the District of Columbia and portions of six states), sales for the first third of the year totaled 61,809, down 0.9 percent from a year before.
