DAMASCUS MD 20872 REAL ESTATE TREND INDICATOR    

If you are thinking about buying or selling a home in zip code 20872, you should take a close look at the following report that compares the statistics for the past month with the same month last year.  During the month, there were 83 active listings of homes for sale in 20872. There were 24 new listings in the area and 17 listings went to pending new contracts.  There were 16 actual settlements as compared to 11 homes sold last year. The total sold dollar volume was up 7.15%. The average number of days on the market was 94 from 85 days last year. The average sale price was 92.55% of the average list price.  The average sold price was $316,125 and median sold price was $319,000.  What does this mean?  It is still a soft market which favors buyers.  Buyers have the largest selection and the lowest prices that have been available for several years. First time home buyers have the benefit of the currently available $8,000 tax credit for settlements that take place before the end of November, 2009. The lenders still have a surplus inventory of foreclosures in Montgomery County and buyers are taking advantage of the bargains. Many buyers are using FHA financing for the low 3.5% minimum cash requirement. The FHA Streamlined 203(k) program allows borrowers to include up to $35,000 of home improvements in the initial mortgage loan. The Housing Opportunities Commission has 100% financing available for qualified first time buyers.
