The Washington Times’ Friday Home Guide singles out Prince William County once again for experiencing a dramatic rise in residential real estate sales, marking another month of standout performance for the county’s local economy. Not only did more residential units sell in April of 2008 over April of 2007, but residential sales outperformed April of 2006 as well. This continues last month’s similar performance where March of 2008 saw more residential sales than both March of 2007 and March of 2006. I think at this point we can safely call this a trend.
Recently, I wrote how surprising it was to see March sales go up by 65 percent in Prince William, but in April, sales there were up an astounding 130 percent. This is particularly shocking when you note that sales were down 26 percent in Howard, down 29 percent in Anne Arundel and down 30 percent in Prince George’s County.
And the Rule of Law Resolution is supposedly hurting the economy? Once again, Prince William outperformed every other jurisdiction in the DC Metropolitan area. The illegal alien lobby is going to have to start coming up with a new complaint pretty soon, as the doom-and-gloom “it’s going to hurt our economy” mantra is starting to look awfully silly.
