Synthesizing Property Prices and Transactions 🎶🏡
The real estate market in Washington often serenades a softer melody during the fall and winter, as noted by Mason Virant from the Washington Center for Real Estate Research. A symphony composed of high interest rates has diminished buyer purchasing power, attenuating transaction volumes and coaxing median prices into a gentle stasis.
However, amidst the serenity, a hopeful note emerges. Selma Hepp from CoreLogic projects a potential crescendo of home prices by around 5% by next September, courtesy of the delicate dance between low inventories and pent-up demand.
