By the Numbers: A closer look at home recent price trends in Virginia and their impact on affordability - Q3 Webinar / Recorded August 24, 2022
There has been significant price growth in housing markets across the Commonwealth in recent years. Following this growth period, mortgage rates climbed, and inflation remains elevated, leaving household budgets tighter, and purchasing power lower. Join the Virginia REALTORS Research Team for a deep dive into how these trends are having an impact on affordability in Virginia’s housing market.
