Local Market Report

(there is no national real estate market)

September 2017

The market index is unchanged from last month's 2.0. Washington DC is still ahead with 1.4 months supply; then Loudoun County unchanged at 1.9; Northern Virginia at 2.1; and Montgomery County unchanged at 2.1.

Average prices are a modest 3.5% over last year, as days on the market and seller concessions continue to increase seasonally. As always, September should be the best month for home buyers, and townhomes continue as most popular.
