Riding Down the Big Slide: Accelerating Home Sales

The SlideClose your eyes and think back a few years.  A few more.  Picture your elementary school playground.  Keep that image in your mind.  What do you see?  The swings, the jungle gym, a see-saw, maybe a basketball hoop,and yes, front and center, a SLIDE.

The slide... you climb a few stairs and sit your butt down on a sloping piece of metal or plastic, give yourself a slight push, and WHOOSH!!!  You accelerate down and come flying off at the end.  The higher and steeper the slide, the faster you go.

Are you wondering why homes are starting to sell so quickly in Northern Virginia?  Take a look at the graphs below and see if you see anything familiar.  These graphs represent the last 6 months worth of inventory of active homes on the market in Fairfax County, Arlington County, and Alexandria.
