September Newsletter



With Labor Day come and gone, we're saying so long to summer and kicking into high gear for fall! Here's what to know and where to go this month.

Your market snapshot

The number of units sold has decreased by 0.8% year-to-date in DC, 4.0% in Northern Virginia, 1.5% in Montgomery County, 0.3% in Prince George's County, while increasing by 2.6% in Anne Arundel County. (1/1/18-8/27/18 vs 1/1/19-8/27/19)

Across the DMV, the time homes were on the market before being sold, on average, increased year-to-date — from 31 to 38 days in DC, 31 to 32 days in Northern Virginia, 40 to 50 days in Montgomery County, 50 to 57 days in Anne Arundel County, and 39 to 52 days in Prince George's County. (1/1/18-8/27/18 vs 1/1/19-8/27/19)

At the same time, the median price increased by 3.0% in DC, 3.3% in Montgomery County, 3.7% in Anne Arundel County, 10.3% Prince George's County, while decreasing by 0.5% in Northern Virginia compared to the prior year. (July 2018 vs July 2019)

For the most part, the number of homes sold throughout the DMV has decreased, while the prices these homes were sold for was up slightly from the previous year. In summary, the demand for homes isn’t as great as a year ago, so there is more room for negotiation on the buyer side.

Local Happenings

Expect diverse work, including comedies, musicals, and dramas.

Envisioned as an escape from the city, CAMP is a rooftop event series that draws inspiration from fall travels as well as local food and beers -- all punctuated by the LINE’s panoramic rooftop view of Washington, DC. CAMP is held in support of an eclectic lineup of neighboring cultural establishments, with $5 per guest going towards that night's organization of choice. CAMP is in session from August 25th until October 20th, and registration is now open. Reserve your spot today!
