For months following the announcement that Amazon's second headquarters was on its way, the effects could be seen in the Arlington housing market. Now, that effect appears to be waning. 

Below, UrbanTurf plucked out a few numbers that illustrate the current state of the Arlington real estate market. 

  • $590,000 -- The median home price in September, up 13 percent year-over-year.
  • $1.09 million -- The average price for a detached home in September. 
  • 8.7% -- The percentage drop in closed sales in September, the largest drop for a local jurisdiction.
  • 51% -- The percentage drop in active inventory between September 2018 and September 2019.
  • 1.15 -- The monthly supply of homes for sale on the market. This is the highest level since November 2018.
  • 0.96 -- The number of contracts per active listing in September, the second month in a row that this ratio has dropped below 1.0.
