Nowhere else in the world can you high-five random people, bear hug complete strangers and jump for joy with tens of thousands of people you’ve never met. Enter the Washington Capitals.

This is exactly what we have seen in Ashburn for the past 21 months since prices bottomed in November 2008.
Bristow’s current housing supply is still at four month’s worth of inventory. Typically economists say that a six-month inventory indicates a balanced market. This low level of inventory is keeping upward pressure on prices in the area.
