McLean, VA 22102 Housing Market – Comparative Analysis – Quarter End 3/31/10 vs. Quarter End 3/31/11

There is a popular saying among top economists:  “As goes housing, so goes the economy.”

Normally, nationwide housing and housing-related services account for about 15-19% of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP), depending on the year.  However, broad generalizations like, “It’s a great time to buy,” don’t even begin to tell the whole story, particularly here in Northern Virginia.  To further understand our local housing market, the statistics need to be compared from quarter to quarter or year to year, so that the average home owner and potential buyer can see the trends in the local housing market.

Hopefully, this analysis will provide you with a more detailed and accurate picture of what is happening in our local housing market.
