I've found that the number of buyers this year in the Metro DC area are way below the norm. Even adjusting for the slow market (sellers becoming buyers when their house sells) they haven't been doing much here.
Is it the mid-term election or the press reports of a slow down. Are there still too many real estate agents in the area - we've lost a lot this year already? Can we expect the NAR ad's to have any impact on the DC area market?
If you have any good answers I'd love to hear about them.
