Local Real Estate Market Update November 2023

Mortgage Rates Ease in November

Welcome relief came for buyers as mortgage rates fell for four straight weeks in November, now a half-point lower than their peak of 7.79% at the end of October. See latest rates here. As inflation cools, the Feds paused interest rate hikes for the second straight month in November, bringing welcome news to borrowers.

As we like to remind our Buyer clients, now is always the right time to buy the right house, and if you are working with an informed Buyer Agent like our great team of Alan, Paul and Chris, they can guide you every step of the way.

The Local Market – Update

Across the District in November, activity slowed, following a typical trend cycle for Fall as the holidays approach and the year winds down. The median sold price in October inside Washington DC was $678,500, up 4.4% from the previous year, and up for 5 straight months in 2023. Across the DC area, median prices for October were up 3.3%, at $568,000.
