  1. Fairfax County's assessment site. They surely don't go out of their way to attract attention to it.

  2. very cool..tracks sales..notice the 25th percentile is going down 10k a month:

  3. These links are very cool.

    The house you've been blogging about at 8300 Hartford apparently sold for $403 at the beginning of 2004, so even at $550 or so that would be a tidy profit.

    It says that the 1608 Noyes house you blogged about that just sold for 470K went for 108K in 1998. That doesn't really sound right...23% appreciation per year for 7 years??!!!

  4. It is correct. This part of Silver Spring, is a significantly nice now then 7 years ago. The nearby downtown Silver Spring has been revitalized thus driving up nearby prices. Nevertheless, the appreciation has been tremendous.

  5. David-

    rents in Silver Spring have not gone up as much as sales prices.

    The rents are probably a more accurate indicator of what the actual sentiment about the new Silver Spring is.

    And that sentiment is probably at least a little too optimistic anyway. Although right now, downtown Silver Spring is very nice, I am not sure I would like to make a huge leveraged bet that it is going to stay that way for 30 years, especially with rising and record crime a few miles away in PG County.

  6. Here are the other close-in jurisdictions in VA:
