Market turns to sellers' delight in Northern Virginia

Sellers - it is time. It is time to get off the fence with a full jump into Sellers Market Meadow!
Prices are starting to really pick up in the suburbs of Washington, D.C. and the inventory continues to tighten a bit with absorption rates dipping below 1 months' supply in various price levels.
This means sellers can now make up the losses from the past, sell their home for a good price and then move up, down, laterally or out of the area with continued historic low interest rates. Freddie Mac has this week's interest rates below 3.60% ( 
The table below demonstrates the absorption rates for the varying price ranges in Northern Virginia according to data from, the regional multiple listing service. A one-month supply means at the rate that houses are going under contract, the inventory would be absorbed in 4 weeks.
