The State of the Real Estate Market

STATUS OF THE MARKET

Experienced buyers know that the market is hot right now and, with the lower interest rates being offered now, it’s definitely a good time to buy. Average number of days on market is around 53 days, an increase of 51% compared to last years’ average days on market, which was around 35 days. The average home price has increased 1% from last year totaling $535,845, up from last year’s average price of $530,216.

The real estate market is at the point of stability, after much turmoil in the past several years

It looks like we’ve finally grown to a point of stability in the Washington DC Metro region. Interest rates are still low and real estate is moving. As we move into the winter months we see that our property inventory is around 8,500 homes in the Northern Virginia area, which is actually just shoy of our 7-year high. This number is 49% higher than this time last year.
