  1. I definitely see the limited amountbof homes for sale in our Area “stittsville”.. Not as MA.y people selling this spring as usual..
    I’m disappointed that many of the houses in our areas are not balanced…. My block for instance is under priced and across the main street in another subdivision same builder busier streets are way higher! Like 100K higher for exact homes…
    I’d like to see that change.. However I’m always happy to hear values go up and sales….

    I’d like the updates as I am a huge follower of the real estate market and the financials of it…. Hobbie/junkie… Lol. Keep me posted pls.
