Virginia Home Sales See Third Month of Double-Digit Price Growth


What a whirlwind of a year! According to the October 2020 Home Sales Report  released by Virginia REALTORS®, home prices continue to surge throughout the Commonwealth, fueled by strong demand, low inventory, and favorable mortgage rates.

In October, the median statewide home sales price was $333,000, up nearly 15% compared to a year ago. This is the third month in a row that the median sales price in Virginia has increased at a double-digit rate.

This double-digit price growth occurred in every region across Virginia in October. In the Commonwealth’s largest regions—the Northern, Central, and Hampton Roads regions—median home prices were up by more than 15%. The fastest price appreciation in October was in the Southwest region, where the median home price was nearly 43% higher than a year ago.

While rising home prices are a boon for sellers, higher prices are making affordability challenges worse for buyers, particularly first-time homebuyers. The median price of a home in Virginia this October was nearly $70,000 higher than it was five years ago.


“All trends suggest that we will see double-digit price growth at least through the end of the year,” says Virginia REALTORS® Chief Economist Lisa Sturtevant, PhD.

Statewide, there were 13,424 home sales in October, up more than 28% from a year ago.

The increase in both sales transactions and home prices led to a surge in the total sold volume. Compared to a year ago, the total sold dollar volume in Virginia is up by more than 48%.

While COVID-19 slowed the market this spring, the rebounding summer and fall markets have fueled significant growth in the total volume of residential real estate sold in Virginia in 2020.
