Area Home Sales Robust as Cherry Blossoms Bloom

Home sales reported in metropolitan Washington, D.C. during the month of March 2017, when compared to the prior month and year, are proving to represent one of the best early spring months in years in the residential real estate industry, in all three local DMV jurisdictions (Washington, D.C., Montgomery County and the ‘close in’ Virginia jurisdictions, such as Arlington, VA).

Per industry reporting, the area-wide dollar volume of sales increased by 26.4%, the average price increased more than seven percent, and the reported “days on market” decreased by 18%. In the dollar volume of sales category, Montgomery County saw a 29.8% increase, and the District with 29.7%. In the analysis of the average price category, the District showed an eight percent increase in March of 2017 when compared to March of 2016.

These reported home sales statistics are amazingly robust throughout the region. With the strong statistics continuing into the spring season, I expect this welcome wave of home selling and buying activity will continue into the summer.

What was unusual in this data analysis, is that all three jurisdictions showed greatly diminished “days on market”; in other words, properties are selling faster throughout the area.

The market is moving at levels we experienced a decade ago. Evers’ seasoned real estate agents are poised to assist sellers and buyers as the process becomes more competitive. I always advise buyers and sellers to engage one of our objective, experienced agents to help guide the process through to the purchase or sale.

About Donna Evers

Donna Evers has more than 30 years’ experience in residential real estate in the Washington Metro marketplace. Donna was one of the most successful sales agents in the area before she started her own company, which is distinguished by an exceptional reputation for the highest standards of excellence. Evers & Co. agents are among the top agents in the area in terms of individual volume of sales and average sales price. Donna grew up in Michigan, received a B.A. from the University of Michigan and later, an M.A. from the University of California at Irvine. She has lived in Chevy Chase, Md. for the past 35 years, just blocks from the company’s Chevy Chase/Friendship Heights office. Evers & Co. has two additional area offices at 7032 Wisconsin Ave. Chevy Chase, MD and 1509 – 22nd Street, NW, in Dupont Circle to further enhance its growing presence in the District of Columbia marketplace. A self-described "house addict," Donna’s passion for real estate extends throughout all facets of her life. Throughout the past several years, she renovated 23 properties, including two in France. She says the fun of renovating and redesigning houses far outweighs the frustrations. Donna Evers’ second home, which is also the site of the company’s third office in Bluemont, Va., is an hour from Washington in the midst of horse farms and historic villages. This is also the site of her vineyard and Twin Oaks Tavern Winery, where she grows grapes and makes award-wining wine. Donna also has an apartment in the sixth arrondissement in Paris, France.
