Ahhh summertime – a time for sailing, swimming… and a time for SELLING! The statistics gathered from this June show that the DC housing market this summer has remained strong. A total of 1002 homes went under contract, which is an increase from June of 2017.
Among all the price brackets, there is one that has seen a particularly strong surge this year. A staggering 33% more homes listed in the $1,000,000 to $2,499,999 range went under contract, demonstrating an uptick in buyers purchasing in DC with budgets well over $1,000,000.
These numbers serve as proof that gone are the days of a slow summer market. Buyers are eager to find their DREAM HOME all year-round, using easily accessible technology to constantly monitor what is new to the market and turning to agents with access to properties not get publicly on the market.
Properties that are marketed properly and priced appropriately will attract the very best buyers in even the worst of weather.

It is a process that requires time, effort, and proper planning so that your home is presented in its best light and to the most qualified buyers. Similarly, we want your home to stand out among the crowd, which requires a thoughtful strategy based on our years of experience.
