More About Falls Church City Real Estate For Sale
Falls Church, VA was originally home to members of the Algonquian-speaking tribes of Virginia Indians. English settlers began migrating to the region during the late 1600’s. A wooden church known as the Falls Church was built along a popular tobacco road in 1733. The church’s brick meeting house, built in 1769, still stands today and is preserved through the National Register of Historic Places. While there are still some antique buildings, the majority of residential development began in the 1930’s, with many single-family homes built in an especially busy construction boon in the 1950’s. The high-rise condos that dot the landscape tend to be of a more recent vintage.
The median home sales price in Falls Church, Virginia is $446,500 according to Trulia. This indicates a sharp increase of 11.7% for the August to October quarter of 2012. Sales prices are still lagging behind list prices and median values, indicating a continued buyers market. There are about 57% single-family homes to 40% condos with a relatively small rental market. There is a fairly small but viable market for foreclosures and short sales as a result of the recent national economic downturn.

Regardless, real estate prices are less than they were at the height of the 2000’s boom, adding to the allure for new home buyers.
