2014

Mild increase in contract activity

OVERVIEW

The November performance of the Washington DC Metro Area housing market continued to follow the patterns seen through most of 2014. Closed sales decreased 1.0 percent from November 2013. While this is a milder increase than in prior months, housing performance in November 2013 was affected by the shutdown of the Federal government in October 2013. Between November 2013 and November 2014, the region’s decrease in closed sales was driven by three jurisdictions: Alexandria City (-11.9 percent), Fairfax County (-9.2 percent) and Montgomery County (-2.3 percent). For the region as a whole, not all property segments had fewer closed sales than last year, and single-family detached home sales increased by 6.3 percent.
