The home at 7728 Falstaff Road in the McLean Hamlet is now active on the multiple listing system. I toured the home during the Broker Open house last week. It is a colonial model common in the eastern side of the McLean Hamlet, which is also the “newer” side, built mostly between 1970 and 1975. The home is similar to 1400 Romeo Court, which I listed and sold in 2016 for $1,037,000. It has four bedrooms upstairs, a large living room, separate dining room, and family room off the kitchen.
There is no open house advertised as of Saturday, April 22. If you want to see this home, call your agent, or call me if you do not have a buyer representative yet.
The home at 1357 Macbeth sold on April 6 for full list price – $935,000. This home was listed on February 24 and was on the market just 2 days. According to the listing agent there were multiple offers on this home. The sale price is $40,000 more than the home next door that has more taxable living area than 1357 Macbeth. 1355 Macbeth was listed on February 11, and closed on March 3 for $885,000.
Both of these homes are evidence that the 2017 market is favoring sellers as inventory remains low at this price range in the Spring Hill area. The market to purchase a home in the McLean Hamlet the market moves fast. Be prepared before a home is listed. If you do not have a buyer representative searching for homes before they are listed, you will likely be late to the action. Contact me to get an edge on the market.
A “Coming Soon” sign is up in front of 7728 Falstaff Road in the McLean Hamlet. This home sold previously in 2013, and at that time it was advertised as a colonial with 4 bedrooms, 3 full and one half baths, with three finished levels. I do not have price information at this time, but if you are interested please contact me. I would be pleased to help you purchase a home in my neighborhood.
As a 20 year resident of the McLean Hamlet, I can attest that one of the top benefits of the neighborhood is the Hamlet Swim & Tennis Club (click on link to visit the Club’s website). I served on the Board of Directors for over 10 years at the Club while my young children participated in the swim programs, and my children have been employed at the club as lifeguards and entrance staff. Memorial Day weekend is not far away and the Hamlet Swim & Tennis Club has memberships available. The club is inviting non-members to join the club this summer. Memberships are available to anyone, you do not have to be a Hamlet resident to join. The Club also has a new fee structure and payment plan in place for 2017 makes membership acquisition far more affordable than previously.
Benefits of the club include:
Open Memorial Day to Mid September – 7 days a week
Vibrant social scene
Perfect for recreation and entertainment
5 tennis courts (3 open year round, 2 clay courts)
Two tennis pros
Youth, Mens, Womens and Mixed Doubles Tennis teams (participate in the Tysons Cup)
Tennis clinics for all ages.
8 lane pool (lifeguarded)
Diving pool with 3 one foot boards
Separate gated “baby” pool
Youth swim and dive teams (participate in NVSL)
Social activities throughout the season for all ages
Early this year there were six homes for rent in the McLean Hamlet. As of March 23, all of those homes have been rented. 1352 Snow Meadow Lane rented yesterday for $3,900 per month. The home had been on the market for 57 days.
A combination of higher than usual inventory and less demand for rental homes appears to have lowered the rental prices in the Hamlet somewhat. For example, 8003 Falstaff Road had rented for $3,800/month in 2015, and $3,650 in 2012, but rented for $3,500 on February 27. It had been available for rent for 205 days before it was rented.
