Real Estate Trends

McEnearney Market in a Minute – Northern Virginia (March 2018): “Northern Virginia now has the strongest real estate market in the metro area, despite the drop in contract activity. Much of that decline stems from the simple fact that there is so little inventory on the market. There is just a half-month supply of homes priced under $500,000. With homes selling in an average of just 31 days and three-quarters of all homes going under contract on the market for less than 30 days, it is clear that the buyer demand is high, but those purchasers don’t have a lot of choices. With fewer new listings coming on the market as well, this imbalance is likely to persist through the spring market.”
