Local Market Report

(there is no national real estate market)

November 2019

The months supply of homes on the market is 1.5, down from last month's 1.6 as expected. Northern Virginia and Loudoun County lead at 1.3; followed by Montgomery County at 1.6; and Washington DC at 1.8. All jurisdictions are in sellers' market territory. There are now 25 homes for sale in ZIP code 22202, a big jump from last month’s 10.

Homes that are priced to sell in Northern Virginia are moving briskly, with condos and townhomes leading detached homes. The months supply and time on the market of detached homes, are almost double that of townhomes and condos. The average discount off final asking price, is greater than 2.5% versus townhomes and condos for which it is well under 1%.
