CAAR Homes Sales Report Third Quarter 2021 Market Report Key Takeaways Economic Conditions • In the third quarter of 2021, while economic conditions remained positive, there was a slowdown in job growth in Virginia. The unemployment picture continued to improve in the Charlottesville region, and economic conditions should become more certain over the next few months. • Consumer confidence has fallen amidst renewed uncertainties about the Delta variant. Individuals, families, and businesses have been rethinking plans that seemed more certain earlier this year. • Mortgage rates remain at historically low levels, but an improving economy will lead to moderate increases in the average 30-year fixed-rate mortgage rate.

REAL ESTATE NEWS

Housing Market Conditions • There were 1,393 homes sold in the CAAR region during the third quarter. Sales were down 4% compared to last year at this time, a decline of 54 sales regionwide. • Home prices continued to rise in the CAAR area. In the third quarter, the median sales price was $365,000, which is up 12% over a year ago, a gain of more than $38,000. • Inventory continued to be very limited in the CAAR region. There were 643 active listings across the CAAR footprint at the end of the third quarter, 30% fewer listings than this time last year.

Economic Overview Virginia’s economy continues to improve, though the Delta variant has taken the wind out of its sails. The growing uncertainty over the summer and into the fall has eroded consumer confidence and has made businesses rethink opening decisions. Despite the uncertainty, it is expected that the state’s economy will continue to expand throughout the rest of 2021 and growth will accelerate in 2022. In August 2021, there was a total of 3.91 million jobs in Virginia, which is up 82,500 jobs from a year ago. Job growth

has been steady, but the pace of the economic recovery has slowed. There are still about 175,000 fewer jobs in Virginia than there were before the pandemic. It is projected that the state will not regain all of the jobs lost during the pandemic and the recession until at least the end of 2022. The statewide unemployment rate was 3.8% in August 2021. The statewide unemployment rate has been falling steadily for the past 18 months. The unemployment rate in the Charlottesville region fell to 3.3% in August 2021. Like the rest of the state, the region’s economy has been impacted by the rise of the Delta variant, but economic conditions should improve in the weeks and months to come. New residential construction activity continued to outpace last year’s activity in the Charlottesville metropolitan area. In the first eight months of 2021, there was a total of 910 permits issued for the construction of new homes in the region, including 628 single-family

homes and 282 housing units in multifamily buildings (including duplexes and townhomes). Compared to the first eight months of 2020, housing construction in the region was up 46%, with an increase of 27% in permits for new single-family homes and an increase of 115% in permits for units in multifamily buildings. While single-family homes dominated the new residential construction activity, accounting for more than two-thirds of all permits issued in 2021, there continued to be a shift towards more development of duplexes, townhomes, and other multifamily buildings. Last year, in the first eight months of 2020, about 21% of new residential construction permits issued were for multifamily units. In 2021, that share has increased to 31%. The Delta variant has also impacted consumer confidence, as individuals and families are feeling more uncertain. In September 2021, the measure of confidence in the present economic situation was 148.5, down from nearly 170 earlier this summer. The measure of consumers’ confidence in future economic conditions fell to 89.1 in September, after rising steadily throughout the late spring and early summer. A consumer confidence index above 100 indicates people are feeling more optimistic about economic conditions. The average rate on a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage has consistently been below 3% for most of the past year. With an improving economy, mortgage rates have been rising slightly, though they still remain at historically low levels. At the end of September, the average 30-year fixed-rate mortgage rate had edged up to just above 3%. Rates are expected to rise modestly over the next few months but should remain below 3.5% throughout the end of the year.

Housing Market Overview It was a busy housing market in the third quarter in the CAAR region, though market activity was slower than it had been during the very hot third quarter of 2020. While there were slightly fewer sales in the third quarter compared to last year at this time, home prices continued to surge at double-digit rates and the average days on market continued to fall. Inventory remained very limited in the CAAR region, with the available supply at less than a third of what it was five years ago. The demand could cool somewhat at the end of 2021 and into 2022, as limited supply frustrates some buyers and rising prices put homeownership out of reach for others.

Sales There were 1,393 sales across the CAAR footprint in the third quarter of 2021. Home sales were down 4% compared to the third quarter of 2020, reflecting a drop of 54 sales. It is not surprising that sales this quarter were lower than last year’s third quarter totals, since many spring sales were pushed into the summer. Home sales were 6% higher than they were in the third quarter of 2019. Statewide, the number of home sales in the third quarter was up 2% compared to last year and was 19% higher than third quarter 2019 sales totals.

Total sold dollar volume expanded in the third quarter, although the rate of volume growth has slowed considerably. An increase in sold volume was driven by strong price growth, even as total regional sales slowed year-over-year. There was approximately $612.1 million of sold volume in the CAAR housing market during the third quarter. Sold volume is up 3% compared to a year ago, a gain of about $19.2 million. Sold volume is up more than 27% compared to the third quarter of 2019.

While inventory is expanding in some markets in Virginia, the supply of homes available for sale continued to shrink in the CAAR footprint. There were 643 active listings in the region at the end of the third quarter. There were 282 fewer active listings on the market than there were last year at this time, a decline of 30%. While inventory in the CAAR region continued to decline, the rate of year-over-year decline has started to slow. Nevertheless, supply is incredibly limited in the CAAR markets, which has created challenging conditions for prospective buyers. At the state level, inventory fell in the third quarter. Statewide, there was a total of 20,726 active listings, which is about 1,800 fewer active listings than a year ago, an 8% drop. There was about 1.5 months of supply at the end of the third quarter in the CAAR footprint, down from 2.5 months a year ago. The months of supply metric is calculated by taking the average monthly sales over the preceding 12-month period and dividing it by the inventory of active listings.

Inventory

Prices continued to rise quicky in the CAAR region. The third quarter median sales price in the area was $365,000, which is 12% higher than last year, a gain of more than $38,000. Home prices were up in the third quarter in all local markets in the CAAR region, with the exception of the City of Charlottesville. Upward pressure on prices continues to be driven by low inventory and active buyers in the market. The median sales price statewide was $355,000, up 8% compared to a year ago.

Distilleries 2021: More and Better BY KEN WILSON

CAAR REAL ESTATE WEEKLY WWW.CAAR.COM

C

andy is dandy but liquor is quicker, to quote a phrase, and if you’re looking for the high-end stuff around here, you don’t have far to go. A spirited search for exceptional spirits will yield any number of charming little craft distilleries in Charlottesville and just a few miles beyond. Cocktail culture has been with us for a while, but sipping societies should be in vogue real soon, given the loving care and patient skill with which local distillers—not hidden in them thar hills, but practicing their trade in plain city sight— coax and infuse their products. Would you like an exquisite single malt? How about brandy made from the oldest fruit in the country? At the bar, moderation is advised, but on paper, we can taste as much as we like. So let’s begin.

Monte Piccolo Distillery Out in Ivy in the figurative shadow of Monticello (“small mountain”) sits Monte Piccolo (“tiny mountain”) Farm. Blood peach, Burford and Bartlett pear, and apricot trees delight visitors with their pink and white blossoms in springtime. But it’s the three unique Varietal Gins™ and three fruit brandies produced here that are the

real draw—and the real fascination. “If it’s interesting, I pursue it with a passion,” says Robin Felder, Monte Piccolo’s scientist, orchardist, dreamer and distiller. And that’s a statement of fact: In addition to his duties as Associate Director of Clinical Chemistry and Toxicology at the University of Virginia, Felder runs a robotics engineering lab and a large research program with PhD students, and edits a new journal called Scientific Spirits, on the science of distillation. And oh, he heads out west twice a year to gather juniper for his gins. “If you go to the gin section in the liquor store, there is no mention as to which juniper species was used in making that gin,” Felder notes, “and there are 61 species of juniper. All the berries are decidedly different in terms of size and color, and of smell, which is what you’re after.” He sees an opening here. Like the distilleries in Scotland that give the world single malt whiskey, Monte Piccolo’s three gins (more are coming) each have a singular, and in this case, organic root. While visiting his daughter in Santa Fe, Felder gathers Juniperus santa fe berries. On his own property, he grows Juniperus virginiana (Virginia juniper) and Camellia japonica (Japanese cypress, in the

gins, anisette, two coffee liqueurs, orange and paw paw liqueurs, apple brandy and strawberry eau de vie, plus “collabs” (collaborations with other areas distillers) that include a Distiller’s Reserve Conifer infused with springtime trimmings of blue spruce and balsam fir. “Terroir” is a term familiar to wine lovers, but at Vitae Spirits it connotes not just a particular natural environment, but the community relationships formed there. Glomski has worked with Mudhouse Coffee Roasters too, developing a coffee liqueur, cold brewed with Mudhouse’s Intention Blend and mixed with house-made sugar cane spirits. The result: “Notes of chocolate, soft stone fruit like plum and cherry, and caramel.” Tastings can be had in Charlottesville at 715 Henry Avenue and at 101 East Water Street.

Monte Piccolo’s tasting room should be open by Christmas. Tours and tastings are available now by appointment.

and that’s how Courage & Conviction, the new American single malt at Lovingston’s Virginia Distillery Company, got its name. A native Irishman, Moore had a passion for single malt—and for Virginia. After a career building businesses in the U.S. and Ireland, he founded his distillery in 2011. Today his wife Angela, their son Gareth, along with Gareth’s wife, Maggie, are carrying George’s legacy forward. Courage & Conviction is distilled with American malted barley and Virginia Blue Ridge Mountain water, and aged a minimum of three years in either sherry, bourbon, and cuvée (sourced from European red wine vintners) casks. It’s so good that it’s been recommended by Esquire magazine. Each cask adds its own character. Sherry Cask is matured in Spanish Sherry casks, for notes of cherry, fig, golden raisin and caramelized plum. Bourbon Cask is matured in casks sourced from bourbon country in Kentucky; it tastes of vanilla, caramel, butterscotch and toffee. Cuvée Single Cask is matured in wine casks and bottled at 118.4 proof. The interiors of these cuvée casks are shaved, re-toasted and re-charred before the spirit is introduced for maturation.

juniper family). Each varietal gives the gin its own unique aroma and mouth feel; each gin is then finished with its own blend of herbs and botanicals, like lemon grass and lemon verbena, which add citrus notes. But Felder has even more to introduce to American spirits connoisseurs. Listen to him wax eloquent, and you might come away thinking of his fruit brandies—eau-de-vies as they’re termed on European shores—as the Proustian madeleine of liquors. “What I’m smelling right now is just like a fresh peach,” he says, as he swirls an elegant chimneyshaped glass designed to concentrate the aroma of its contents. “And it brings back early summer memories for me.” Felder thinks the place for his 80 proof, no sugar brandies—he also does distillations derived from apricots and Burford pears—is on the dessert menu, as an alternative, say, to that high-caloric four-layer chocolate cake. They’re meant to be savored slowly, as digestifs and conversation extenders. “I’m just trying to open up the eau de vie style,” he says. “Every country has theirs—in Germany it’s schnapps.”

Spirit Lab Distilling Passion, curiosity, and DIY ingenuity drive today’s mall craft spirit makers. Take Ivar Aass, who arrived in Charlottesville from New York City in 2012 after stints in Norway, Indonesia and France. In 2016 his brand-new Spirit Lab Distilling released a first, tiny batch of 100 percent barley single malt, using a wild yeast strain Aass started years ago in his kitchen. It sold out in hours. In 2021 the Lab’s Batch No. 10, “Aass Cask Strength” Ghost Tiger single malt smells of “honey, vanilla, toast, crème brûlée, leather and black tea,” and tastes of “refined oak, deep sherry and fig.” At 58 percent alcohol by volume—116 proof—it’s a slow sipper, the perfect accompaniment for a long, leisurely têteà-tête on a cold winter’s night. Today’s Craft Cocktail movement has rediscovered Old Tom Gin, a spirit highly popular in 18th-century England. Sweeter than the more common London Dry, it’s drier than Dutch Jenever. Aass drew on his family’s Norwegian moonshiner recipe as inspiration for his spin on the once almost forgotten tradition, the Barrel-Rested Old Tom Gin. Named the “Tom’s Envy,” it was the Crowd Favorite Cocktail at the most recent Tom Tom Founders Festival. It’s a gin with notes of spruce, French lavender, fresh citrus zest, lemon verbena, baking spices of cardamom, star anise and clove. Good liquor deserves a worthy presentation, and Aass, like his colleagues, provides his with beautiful labels. He designs, handprints, and numbers unique labels every batch, using Bernhard Gothic Medium type on 100 percent cotton Rives lightweight cream stock paper. Black tomcats adorned many Old Tom Gin labels back in the day. Spirit Lab’s version pays homage to its nine-pound, black-and-white feline—not a tomcat, but just as fearsome, or so she fancies. Kids and dogs—or cats on leashes—are welcome to come along, but will not be

served, for Spirit Lab’s $10 per person tastings. Complimentary tours are available when the staff has time. One-day, whiskey distilling crash courses are offered periodically.

More and Better Yes, we have our pick around here. Waterbird Spirits makes canned vodka cocktails. North American Sake Brewing makes seven varieties of sake from American-grown rice and Blue Ridge Mountain water. Ragged Branch in Albemarle County, Silverback in Afton, and Copper Fox in Sperryville produce the hard stuff, and some mother’s son somewhere is getting the distilling bug himself. “Scotch, whiskey and spirits are lifelong passions for me,” Aass says today, “and I’d always wanted to learn how to make them, so I started tinkering around in my NYC apartment with a tiny stovetop still to see what I could do. I was instantly hooked. Even back then, I was sharing what I’d made with friends in blind tastings, and they were impressed, so I knew I was onto something.” Yes, it used to be that there were bootleggers and there were “mad scientists.” Today the guy (it’s usually a guy) keeping the locals happy and the guy messing around in the lab with an (innocent) gleam in his eye are one and the same— the friendly Central Virginia distiller. Felder’s father created the prototype. “My father always had an open bar policy for my brothers and me,” Felder remembers. “We lived in Europe for three and a half years, so we drank wine as little tykes; we were taught very early how to do social drinking responsibly. When I got to age 16 my father said, “Do you know what this means? From now on you buy your own liquor.” And I said, “Oh, can you help me make a still? And the rest is history.” But not right away. At first, “I made lots of sake,” Felder says. Decades later on sabbatical in Switzerland, he discovered a bottle of the highly popular regional pear liquor in the chalet where he was staying. “I took a sip of that and I turned to my wife and I said, “This is my future.” His, that is, and our own lucky palates.
