Local Market Report

(there is no national real estate market)

July 2018

The market index increased seasonally to 1.5 months supply from last month's 1.4. Loudoun County retains the lead with 1.2 months supply; then Northern Virginia with 1.4; Washington DC unchanged at 1.5; and Montgomery County at 1.7. Coming months will be slightly better for buyers, but some will still have to fight other buyers to win their home of choice. Our market is stronger than it has been for 5 years, with inventory lower and sales higher.
