I believe this is the third Revisited that was listed following the election. I am noting this because we have seen potentially significant impact of the election results to the real estate market in the form of increasing mortgage interest rates.
This affects what buyers can afford by increasing their monthly payment. It may push a number of buyers into looking at lower price ranges, or in some case, even force them out of buying in the high cost DC market.
I don’t expect that a change in Admin means that we’ll have an additional influx (above our already 1000+ per month net growth figures for the District of Columbia). I am very curious to see if buyers really push activity early in the year to lock in interest rates. Inventory of homes actively listed for sale remains super low, especially as Sellers are hesitant to list during cold and potentially bad weather months.
The listing agent for this property was Chelsea Traylor with Redfin Corp. Stu Naranch, also with Redfin Corp assisted the Buyer.
