Sales volume for the first half of 2023 is down between 18% and 28% across the DMV. The interest rate environment has contributed to lower sales volume as many would-be home sellers are delaying a move because they don't want to give up their existing lower fixed rate mortgage. The good news is that despite the higher interest rates, the stock market is strong and real estate prices have held steady (and some sought after areas, appreciated) which shows the relative strength/resilience of the DMV real estate market. Looking ahead, we anticipate sales volume for the second half of the year will out-pace 2022 and prices will continue to hold their ground. Life happens and you can only delay a family move for so long. Homes are like haircuts, at some point, you just need to get one.
