For what it’s worth, this is the first Revisited that we are seeing that was listed following the election results. Real estate agents in DC these past few weeks are having some interesting conversations. It’s has been a while since we watched mortgage interest rates climb for what is now eight or nine straight weeks, to their highest level in two years.
That said, the DC Council, in addition to the Mayor’s previous recent home buyer incentives announcement, is working on some legislation to lower closing costs for first time buyers in DC. There are logistics to be figured out, but there is a big push to continue to get people with moderate income into home ownership.
I predict a really busy Spring Market. Buyers are expected to try to capture the still historically low mortgage rates, and Sellers hope to sell before prices may respond to the higher cost of monthly payments.
The listing agent for this property was Marvin Lovos with Heymann Realty, LLC. Dylan Hanna with Heymann Realty, LLC assisted the Buyer.
