Washington, DC (PRWEB) July 25, 2011
The Washington, D.C. residential real estate market continues to strengthen, with prices continuing to rebound as June 2011 marked the 14th consecutive month of increased average prices over the previous month.
“The summer months are shaping up to be quite strong as our housing market steadily continues to recover,” said Evers & Co. Real Estate President and Broker, Donna Evers. “When you look to last year’s numbers, you see the summer of 2010 was also quite strong due to the First Time Homebuyers Tax Credit, which significantly bolstered home sales.”
Historically low mortgage rates continue to entice homebuyers and sellers with rates continuing to decline within the last few days. Chad Loube of First Place Bank says that because rates have gone down this week, “Homebuyer's can obtain 30-year fixed rate loans up to $729,750 in the mid-four percent range.”
“With the combination of low mortgage rates and plenty of inventory that is priced well, now truly is the best time to buy a home within the metro D.C. area.”
Evers expects home buying to remain strong through July, and to surpass the July of 2010 sales figures because of what she calls, ‘homebuyer enthusiasm,’ in the metro Washington, D.C. market.
