Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) May 16, 2011
The Washington, D.C. residential real estate market continues to improve, with April being the strongest sales month in the past 12 months, according to Evers & Co. Real Estate President and Broker Donna Evers.
While April was expected to be strong, Evers did not anticipate that the dollar volume of sales would be higher than the region saw in April 2010, when buyers rushed to purchase before the end of the First Time Homebuyers Tax Credit.
“I was pleasantly surprised to see the bonanza of sales last month,” said Evers. “The Washington metro area is the strongest real estate market in the country. I see prices continuing to rise, so the sooner people buy, the better deal they will receive.”
“With the relatively weak dollar, we should also expect an influx of foreign buyers – and not only for commercial properties,” said Evers. “They are also seeing good values in our Blue Chip real estate market.”
Looking beyond the D.C. region, Evers notes that many markets continue to struggle.
“Unfortunately, some areas of the country haven’t hit bottom in terms of pricing,” she said.
*Statistics are taken from the Metropolitan Information System for three areas: Washington, D.C., Montgomery Country, Maryland; and Fairfax County, Arlington, Alexandria and Falls Church in Virginia.
