The weather is cooling, but the D.C. housing market isn’t

“D.C. is the queen of the show in the region,” says Donna Evers, broker and owner of Evers and Co. Real Estate in Washington. “Demand for homes in the city really never slowed down this summer, the way it normally does, and we expect the momentum to continue right into the fall.”
