Local Market Report

(there is no national real estate market)

July 2017

National data and new home data are irrelevant unless you are a macro-economist. Here's the data you need...

The market index increased seasonally to 1.7 months supply from last month's 1.6. Washington, DC is still ahead with 1.5 months supply; then Loudoun County at 1.6; Northern Virginia at 1.7; and Montgomery County at 1.9.

Days on the market, and seller concessions have bottomed and are starting to increase slowly. Average prices continue to increase, but remember that there is a 1 to 2-month lag in the price data. Here's the low-down on all statistics; what they mean to you, and what they don't.
