The Loudoun County Market 

Pending and sold homes remain flat. 

Demand for homeownership remains strong in Loudoun County but due to the limited amount of houses available, the sold homes and homes under contract have remained flat week over week. 

New listings continue to lag prior years. 

New listings in Loudoun County are flat week over week. New listings decline in the fall as the school year begins and winter approaches. Yet if rates start to ease, it could entice sellers to participate more than they typically do in the latter half of the year.

List prices continue to surpass 2022. 

While the Loudoun County market has slowed, the lack of inventory has kept pressure on prices. The median list price for the week ending July 23 was $709,000, and list prices have been consistently higher in 2023 than 2022. The market imbalance between supply and demand should cause prices to remain firm through the rest of 2023.

Try This!

Drunk Shakespeare!  

Yes, you read this right and as you can guess, this is an adults only event. 

“Drink sir, is a great provoker…” Macbeth, Act 2, Scene 3

The stage is set in a hidden venue. Five professional actors meet as members of The Drunk Shakespeare Society. One of them has 5 shots of whiskey and then attempts to perform a major role in a Shakespearean play. Hilarity and mayhem ensue while the four sober actors try and keep the script on track. 

Every show is different depending on who is drinking… and what they’re drinking!

Craft cocktails are available for purchase throughout the show.
