A Snapshot of the DC Metro in 2020
There’s a lot going on in the world these days. We’ve seen a lot of ups and down in the past few months, and things have even felt a little chaotic at times. But remember, we’re all in this together, and my team and I are here to support you! So we’d like to share some real estate tips and stories of positivity to put a smile on your face.
Here’s what’s happening in the DC Metro area.
The real estate market is rebounding
All 50 states nationwide have begun to reopen, some more than others, and as life slowly begins to resume a more normal pace, more and more buyers are rushing to take advantage of ultra-low interest rates. Buyers are actively searching for new homes, and the increased demand has stabilized the cost of homes. Sellers are a bit more hesitant, but the market shows definite signs of rebounding quickly.
Restaurants are opening—with new regulations
The DC area is slowly reopening, and restaurants, too, are beginning to welcome patrons once more. However, dining out will look a little different these days, thanks to new regulations that ensure the safety of both diners and staff. Be sure to call ahead of time to find out what restrictions might be in place before you head out to eat.
