The economy is rebounding as Washington, D.C. continues to evolve into a ‘Mecca for Millennials,’ according to 30-year local real estate broker, Donna Evers. Evers & Company, http://www.eversco.com, the largest independent, woman-owned real estate firm in the city, was founded by Evers in 1985 to provide home buyers and sellers with expertise, specific to Washington, D.C.’s historic neighborhoods.

Evers, who has a fascination with, and a love for architecture and culture in our nation’s Capital City is currently witnessing, “Washington’s evolution into a more cosmopolitan city.” She believes all the cultural experiences and numerous new dining options are contributing to attracting more millennials and making D.C. a ‘Mecca for Millennials.’

“In the past, the best and brightest young professionals moved to D.C. for federal and Congressional-related jobs. Now, they are moving here in droves to not only enjoy great jobs, but because we have an overall quality of life that encompasses a fun, diverse life if that is what you’re craving. The millennial movement is definitely influencing the real estate market in a positive way.”

Recent reports such as the one issued by research firm RealtyTrac show Washington outpacing traditional hot spot cities like New York. When compared to a year ago, the September 2014 real estate statistics show home prices and home sales down by one percent and listings staying on the market for an average of 20 percent longer.* The relatively flat market is a sign that buyers are slightly better positioned than sellers this fall and pricing may be in buyers’ favor.
