Tysons Market Still Going Strong into 2023

The year 2022 follows a fantastic 2021 in real estate in the Tysons Corner area. The expecrted interest hikes created a strong demand from buyers wanting to secure a home with still low interest rates. In most areas homes were flying off the market with multiple offers and escalation clauses – and with prices going far above asking. The spring and early summer were great – things started to slow down a bit towards the end of the summer and into fall. That being said, the number of new homes coming on the market is low and prices have remained stable up to now.

The graph below shows the number of new listings in the Tysons Corner 22102 and 22182 zipcodes.
