KW Metro Center Presents NORTHERN VIRGINIA, MONTGOMERY COUNTY & WASHINGTON, D.C.

MARKET REPORT Q1 2019

®


A MESSAGE FROM THE BROKERSpring has arrived in whirlwind fashion and so has the Q1 2019 housing market in the NOVA, DC and Montgomery County markets. The early rush of anxious buyers can be felt in the frenzied effort to find and buy the most desirable homes resulting in multiple offers, price escalations, waiving contingencies and homes being sold in the shortest time frames in recent history. Highly ranked school districts have become one of the strongest drivers in this market and homes located in these districts are experiencing the highest price appreciation and the quickest sell through. Additionally, a good percentage of homes are being sold before ever coming to market thus reducing the opportunity for the buyer pool currently looking to buy. The Q1 housing metrics across the NOVA, DC and Montgomery County markets showed strong improvement YOY with the exception of unit sales, which were down across all jurisdictions. Inventory levels although depressed continue to rise helping to spur the strong performance the spring market is experiencing. As we have seen in the past, performance varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction with the NOVA market showing the most consistency in the measurements attributable to performance. Although, DC experienced an 8% increase in average sale price, the NOVA cities of Springfield, Lorton and Falls Church delivered the most robust housing numbers in Q1. Expectations remain positive for the Greater DC housing markets as we move into the second quarter of 2019. Consumer confidence, low unemployment and the continued migration of high tech companies into our area will continue to drive demand through the remainder of 2019. Interest rates should continue to remain stable based on external factors such as Brexit and China’s soft economic performance while the Fed continues it’s steady hand managing the money supply also impacting interest rate stability. Lastly, the bond market continues to be one of the safer investments for foreign entities contributing to interest rate stability. However, the continued rise in the national debt has caused some concern on economic growth impacting everything from infrastructure to interest rates. Historically, we have come to depend on the federal government as the largest employer in our area and to some degree this remains true. This is slowly changing as we are seeing the professional and business services sector employment enjoying strong growth in our markets thereby diversifying our work force opportunities. This growth along with the large tech and biotech firms moving to our area portend continued prosperity in the Greater DC market place. In addition, home prices in close proximity to the new Amazon headquaters should see above average gains in price appreciation. Overall, the housing market for the Greater DC market should continue to remain healthy with sellers enjoying steady price appreciation and buyers relying on continued low interest rates and growing inventory levels. - Jim Lyons

NORTHERN VIRGINIA

“

“

The Northern Virginia housing market experienced moderate gains in Q1 compared to Q1 2018 in terms of average sales price and marginally increased inventory levels. The average sales price rose 2.3% while unit sales were down -1.7% despite an average inventory decline of -16.4% over this period. Days on Market declined from an average of 43 days in Q1 2018 to 34 days in Q1 2019. In a nutshell, homes sold faster, for more money and home availability improved slightly. The NOVA market continues to exhibit the strength and stability necessary to attract investment, employers and younger workers that will continue to drive the housing market over the course of 2019.

WASHINGTON, D.C.

“

“

Q1 results for the Washington, D.C. housing market saw a strong rebound in average sale prices from Q1 2018. Confounding this strong performance however, unit sales were down -5.8% while average inventory levels jumped to an average of +7.3% YOY. Attached TH/Row Homes experienced the strongest growth in sales price increases with condos bringing up the rear with lackluster performances in both price and unit sales. Multi-unit development will continue to dominate the DC housing landscape for the foreseeable future and could have a negative effect on the supply side of the market, thereby slowing price appreciation.

MONTGOMERY COUNTY

Montgomery County continues to deliver a mixed bag of results as seen once again in the Q1 housing metrics. Overall, the average sales price was up +1.5% while unit sales were down -10.7%. Inventory levels inched up slightly on a YOY basis but continue to hamper buyer options thereby depressing overall purchasing activity. With no single housing stock type dominating this market, little to marginal inventory growth and MD’s higher tax rate it appears there will be little growth in housing market in the near future. In other words, more of the same for 2019.

RED Day (Renew, Energize and Donate) is an initiative dedicated to celebrating Keller Williams Realty’s year-round commitment to improving our local communities. Each year, on the second Thursday in May, tens of thousands of associates from across the United States and Canada participate in a wide range of projects, devoting their time to renewing and energizing aspects of the neighborhoods in which they serve. This year we are so excited to be working with New Hope Housing in Alexandria. This is an innovative, award-winning non-profit agency in Northern Virginia committed to finding creative and lasting solutions to end the cycle of homelessness by offering homeless men, women and children the services they need to change their lives and succeed. This year KW MetroCenter Old Town is providing spring cleaning at two of New Hope Housing’s community shelters. In addition to cleaning and landscaping, we are raising funds for supplies and have wish list items needed for the guests for their transitioning to and from the facilities. Moore Construction Group is joining our day of service for New Hope Housing; They are building a new shed and finishing/painting a deck.
