Ashburn is following the normal seasonable pattern of softening prices and reduced inventory as we approach the holiday season. For some very focused buyers, the next six weeks will be the best time of year to buy a new home since there are fewer buyers in the marketplace to compete with.
Washington D.C. has seen an explosion in haute cuisine recently, with celebrity chefs and elaborate menus taking over the city. But sometimes simple cooking is all a stomach needs. That’s where Great American Restaurants and their numerous locations come in handy, satiating the desire for great food without fuss.
Bristow’s current housing supply is now a little OVER a four month supply after being right at four months for a long time. Is this a change in the trend or just the time of year? Only time will tell. Remember that economists say a six-month inventory indicates a balanced market
When the thermometer drops and the wind turns brisk, many people head indoors for the comfort of a soft couch and a crackling fire.
