NORTHERN VIRGINIA

The 2018 housing market in the NOVA, DC and MD suburbs (Montgomery Co) on a YOY basis were mildly disappointing given buyer demand, continued low interest rates and a red hot jobs market. YOY average home sale prices continued at a modest pace with all jurisdictions showing increases (Alex +5.7%, Arl +1%, Fairfax +1.9% and DC +1.5%) but suffered lackluster unit sales based primarily from a lack of available housing inventory. Home prices will continue to rise throughout 2019 but buyer demand, new job growth, sellers that refinanced with attractive mortgage rates will put additional pressure on already strained inventory levels. Q4 overall unit sales and average home sale price increases outpaced the YOY numbers for most of the Greater DC market (NOVA, DC, MoCo) but once again critically low inventory levels and entry level new home construction slowed real growth. Among the bright spots in this mixed market, Alexandria City continued to show strong growth with a 11% increase in unit sales and a 6% increase in avg sold price. We will continue to see moderate to strong housing growth in NOVA moving west as cities and counties experience redevelopment projects, the Metro’s Silver Line nears completion and tech companies continue to make their presence felt in the Dulles corridor. What’s on the horizon in 2019? Although, the National Association of Realtors is forecasting a 5% increase in home sale prices and a 1% increase in unit sales nationally, our Greater DC market (NOVA, DC, MD) will continue to experience the slow but predictable growth we’ve experienced over the past few years. Housing growth will continue to remain restrained by low inventory, home affordability, rising interest rates and insufficient new home construction. Additionally, seniors aging in place, homes refinanced with attractive mortgage rates and investors converting properties to rentals (anticipating Amazon associates) will also play a significant role in the slow unit sales growth in 2019. Expect avg home sale prices to increase at a steady rate of approximately 2-4% for our market. Amazon has created quite the buzz and anxiety for our market with many sellers hedging their bets on rising home values by delaying selling their homes and buyers expressing concerns over affordability and availability. The truth is, the Amazon impact will be felt over the long run with minimal impact initially. Amazon is projecting the creation of approximately 400 new jobs in 2019, 900 more in 2020 and then escalating job creation on a year over year basis after that. The greatest impact will initially be felt on existing and new local business growth, educational investment, construction and lastly, housing. The estimated financial impact could be as great as a $15B boost to our economy and 62,000 new jobs by 2030. The local jobs market will benefit significantly from the Amazon announcement thereby putting additional pressures on the housing market. Bottom line, if you have it sell it now and if you want to buy, buy it now.

Q4 for the Northern Virginia market exhibited more of the same growth pattern it has throughout the year. Unit sales down (-5.2%), avg sales price up (+2.6%) and DOM down both on a quarterly and annual basis. Sellers and buyers can expect to see more of these same metrics for 2019. 2018 YTD numbers closely mirrored the Q4 numbers across all three jurisdictions-NOVA, DC and Montgomery County. The NOVA market is forecasted to experience continued low unemployment, moderate wage growth job and a reduction in dependence on Federal jobs although this will be offset by an increase in the computer related and bio-tech sectors. These factors along with anticipated minimal Amazon impact will put additional pressure on an already under inventoried market.

The DC housing market continued to deliver mixed results with wildly fluctuating metrics by neighborhood. The Q4 results were lackluster in regards to overall unit sales experiencing a -10.3% decline and avg sales price up just 2%. The 2018 YOY results again delivered similar results with avg sale prices up 1.5% and unit sales off by a -2.3%. However, active listings have been up significantly for the past 3 months which bodes well for a strong start in 2019. With multi-unit housing developments dominating the housing landscape and rents continuing to climb, home affordability may just make purchasing a more desirable option.

Following the trend of the NOVA and DC markets, Montgomery County showed mixed results in both unit sales and home sale prices with no particular housing type dominating the sales landscape for Q4. However, the significant growth initiatives MoCo has projected-250 projects including 30,500 Multi Dwelling Units, millions of sq ft of retail and office space should bring a needed boost for these close in cities.
