The Washington DC metro market was very busy in 2013.  Thank goodness the government shutdown is over.  We expect 2014 to be a very robust year for selling and renting homes.  Good condition homes are selling and renting at a brisk pace.  This should continue for 4-5 more years.  The Case Shiller Index shows we have the strongest real estate market in the country.  The counties surrounding the District also have brisk business activity.


We are confident there will be another rising Bull market before the decade is over. Prices will rise wildly again when inventories of homes become reduced.  People will forget about the short sales and foreclosures of the past.  Now is an excellent time to purchase.   Many home prices in our area are 5-25% below 2005 levels.  It’s a great time to buy and hold real estate for the long term. 

                                           

Beware of Rental Scammers & Con Artists!

There are thief's trying to steal deposits from unsuspecting tenants.   They copy photos and descriptions of rental homes from real ads of homes for rent.  Then, they posts fake ads with rental prices that are about half price.   Do not send money to anyone unless you can go inside the home to see it!!   Read about the scams being used at this link.     http://www.craigslist.org/about/scams    The scam ads are posted on numerous rental home websites.  If the price is really low,  it is a fake ad.   Call me on my cell phone to see inside any of our rental homes.
