The weather has cooled off but the market certainly hasn’t.

Total new contract activity for the week of September 13 – 19, 2020 rose 25.5% compared to the same seven-day period last year for the six jurisdictions we track, and all six areas posted gains.

As strong as the market is overall, the outer suburbs continue to outpace closer-in areas. Prince William County had the strongest week with a 43.3% increase in the number of newly ratified contracts, and neighboring Loudoun County rose 31.4%. Montgomery County was actually slightly better than Loudoun, up 32.6%. Northern Virginia was up 28.7%, Prince George’s was up 14.3% and Washington, DC rose 7.8%.

And continuing a trend we have seen since April, homes are selling much more rapidly than last year. In the just completed week homes that went under contract were on the market an average of just 19 days – 17 days more rapidly than the same week last year.

Have a great week!

Total new contract activity for the week of September 6 – 12, 2020 was up 12.5% compared to the same seven-day period last year for the six jurisdictions we track. Four of the six areas posted gains while two had modest drops.

While that looks like a bit of a cooling off from last week’s huge 52% gain, both sets of numbers were skewed by the timing of the Labor Day weekend. The most recent week included most of the Labor Day holidays while last year’s did not, so it’s not an apples to apples comparison. Overall, the last two weeks’ worth of contract activity was up 29.6% compared to the same two-week period last year.

Prince William County had the best week with a 43.3% increase in the number of newly ratified contracts. Loudoun County and Montgomery County had gains of 26.4% and 25.4% respectively, while Northern Virginia was up 7.4%. Washington, DC was off 5.0% and Prince George’s County was off 4.7%.

And once again homes going under contract last week were on the market an average of two weeks less time than last year – 20 days vs. 34.

Have a great week!

The rebound continues!

Total new contract activity for the week of August 30 – September 5, 2020 rose 52.3% compared to the same seven-day period last year for the six jurisdictions we track, and as one would expect from that kind of performance, all areas saw significant increases in the number of newly ratified contracts.

The “worst” performance came from Prince William County, with “only” a 32.7% increase. All other areas had increases of more than 50% - Northern Virginia was up 56.5%, Washington, DC rose 59.7%, Prince George’s County was up 61.7%, Loudoun County was rose 67.0% and Montgomery County led the way with a 70.2% increase.

However, those big numbers come with two asterisks. The seven-day period covered in the report includes only one day of the Labor Day weekend, while last year’s encompassed the entire weekend. So this week skews higher simply because of the calendar. In addition, there was actually a drop of almost 100 contracts compared to the previous week – 1,735 homes went under contract last week, and there were 1,828 the prior week.

And once again, homes are selling much more rapidly now than last year at this time. Homes went under contract in an average of just 22 days last week, an 18 day drop from 40 days last year.

Have a great week!

Wishing you a Happy Labor Day weekend!

The weather has started to cool just a bit, but the market has stayed hot as the DC metro area saw another 1,800+ homes go under contract last week.

For the week of August 23 – 29, 2020, total new contract activity was up 33.9% compared to the same seven-day period last year for the six jurisdictions we track. Homes sold two weeks faster as well, going under contract in an average of 22 days last week compared to 36 days last year.

All six jurisdictions posted gains in the number of newly ratified contracts, with Prince William County up 67.8%. Loudoun County was up 48.1%, and those two areas also have – by far – the biggest year-to-date increase in contract activity. Both are up between 6% and 7%, and that’s a remarkable achievement in this unusual year. Northern Virginia was up 48.7%, and the three areas on the other side of the Potomac also fared well last week: Washington, DC was up 21%, Montgomery County rose 14.6% and Prince George’s County was up 13.5%.

The late summer real estate market in metro DC continues to perform like it’s spring.

Total new contract activity for the week of August 16 – 22 was up 33.1% compared to the same seven-day period last year for the six jurisdictions we track. But for the first time in a month, one of the six areas saw a drop in the number of newly ratified contracts.

Loudoun County has an exceptionally good week with a 71.7% increase. Three more areas posted almost identical gains in the 40s – Montgomery County was up 42.8%, Washington, DC was up 42.6% and Northern Virginia was up 42.2%. Prince William County had a 26.9% increase. Prince George’s County was the lone area with a decrease, down just 3.4%.

To provide some context to these very strong numbers, this past week actually had slightly less contracts than the week before – 1,805 this week vs. 1,816 for the previous week of August 13 – 21.

And once again, homes are selling more rapidly than this time last year – at an average of just 22 days, that’s 15 days quicker than last year.

Have a great week!

The surge in home buying continues!

Total new contract activity rose 25.6% for the week of July 26 - August 1, 2020 compared to the same seven-day period last year for the six jurisdictions we track, and all six areas posted solid increases.

Montgomery County had the best week with a significant 41.7% increase in the number of newly ratified contracts, followed by Loudoun County with a 31.3% increase. Prince William was up 27.4% and Northern Virginia was up 25.1%. Washington, DC rose 15.8% and Prince George’s County was up 14.2%.

And once again, homes sold much more rapidly than this time last year, going under contract in an average of 27 days last week, compared to 36 the same week last year.

To provide some perspective, these very healthy contract numbers are not record-setting. Over the last month, they are very comparable to those of April last year. What is record-setting is the staggering low inventory, especially in the suburban markets.
