What These Numbers Mean to You

Welp. Last month we asked if “Back-to-School” would finally slow down the powerful DC real estate market and we got our answer:

Bugs Bunny No

Low mortgage interest rates and low inventory continue to keep the engine humming, which is great news for home sellers. Buyers continue to have to hustle to find those great deals. Washington, DC did set a new ten-year record for overall new listings, so maybe, maybe, some relief is on the way.
