As we welcome the fall season and the beginning of a virtual school year, we can all look forward to the cooler weather, changing leaves, and fall activities like carving pumpkins, cooking hearty soups, enjoying a bon fire or two, and munching on pumpkin spiced goodies.
Below, we've compiled the most recent Real Estate news updates, home winterizing checklist, helpful resources for the NOVA 2020 virtual school year, and fun activities to do while still keeping social distancing regulations.

We are so grateful for the ongoing support we received throughout the summer, and we can't wait to see what this next season has in store for us!

September Market Metrics Report
Historically, when Summer transitions into Fall, so too does the Real Estate market from it's busy season to the slower Fall/Winter market. However, the housing metrics have been holding up unseasonably strong due to the pushbacks COVID-19 has caused for business's nation wide.
Buyer demand is still exceptionally high in Northern Virginia. Mortgage rates are still historically low, and home refinancing is a trending topic. Home owners looking to sell their homes should still take advantage of the current market to get the best value on their homes before inventory picks up again.
