Market Update and Open Houses May 20th
Market Recovers in April
The first quarter of 2018 was not kind to the real estate market in northern Virginia. The market was down 6% compared to sales from 2017. Oak Hill and Fairfax Station were the big winners in the 1st quarter with 80% of the markets in the red. Sales in April were down an average of only 3% with 1/2 of the markets now in the green over 2017. Fairfax Station remained strong along with Great Falls and McLean. Rising interest rates, low inventory and skittish buyers are identified as the cause of the soft market. The news is no better for the new home market, which is down 23% year to date from 2017.
