The kids are back to school, and we're back to the hot real estate market!
August stats were roughly in line with prior years', and activity picked up after Labor Day, as expected. See chart at right for Northern Virginia stats (take Fairfax City and Falls Church with a grain of salt...very small sample sizes! But WOW Arlington--no doubt people are buying into the HQ2 hype.) Typically in September we see a pop in inventory as sellers try to get a deal done before the holidays and year end, and this year is no exception.
We'll be announcing soon a date for the return of our FREE first time home buyer classes! Stay tuned for a date in late October or early November. Contact us if you want us to ping you when registration opens!
Thinking of buying? It's better to start sooner than later, even if your target move date is months away...with a lot of buyers 'waiting until next Spring', it's a great time to find a great home with less competition from other buyers!
