Real Estate Trends

McEnearney Market in a Minute – Northern Virginia (October 2018): “Northern Virginia’s real estate market remains pretty strong overall, but in September, it was a little … quieter. Contract activity was down compared to last September, as was inventory and the number of new listings coming on the market. And the early part of October is mirroring those results. Absorption rates are down a bit as well. None of these indicators are cause for alarm – as we have noted during the past few months, we’re in the early stages of a market transitioning to a period of more balanced supply and demand. But there is the possibility of a game-changer: we’re all awaiting Amazon’s decision about the location of their HQ2 and the prospect of 50,000 new jobs over the next decade. ”
