Now, onto your real estate update.
August 2023 DMV Real Estate Market Overview
While the summer real estate market was a bit slower than is typical for this time of year with many buyers out of town, we still saw a ton of market activity. Our team recently handled multiple offers from Ashburn, VA to DC to suburban MD. Low inventory levels and demand for housing have offset the historically high interest rates, so buyers are still moving forward with purchases; they are just price sensitive, ensuring they get a good deal on their purchase.
What’s Going On With Interest Rates
Speaking of those historically high interest rates, the Fed raised rates again last week, as you likely heard, and are expected to raise them once more this year. However, the lending world already anticipated this move, so rates stayed about the same (in the high 6s). We are keeping an eye on this, hoping they remain in the sub 7% range. If you are considering buying a home and want to learn how to “buy down” your interest rate, please don’t hesitate to reach out! We are more than happy to help!
