Mary Dionisio Brixius, Realtor

Mary Dionisio Brixius, Realtor Top Realtor in Northern Virginia and Maryland for 20 years enhanced by a 12-year law firm career. Every one of my clients is a priority.

I entered into the corporate profession of real estate long before becoming a Realtor in 2003 - with a strong desire to help others navigate the complicated processes of buying or selling a home after 12 years of real estate law firm work. I realize that, for many, a home is often the most expensive purchase one will make in life. I am empathetic as to the stresses that go into preparing a residen

ce for sale, so I work very hard to minimize the difficulties inherent within the process. My unique staging and home preparation background not only benefits all of my clients, but it is a part of my top-notch services that most cannot mirror or offer without additional compensation to their client. I have a strong, experienced team that my clients can rely on and trust. Because I have been a Realtor in agency now for 18 years, it’s my overall experience in real estate of 30 years that has guided me in fulfilling my clients’ expectations . . . many shared that I exceeded them, and this remains my goal. While assisting my clients, each step of the way during their home sale or purchase, I ensure that negotiations are sound and straightforward. I am committed to a seamless transaction - honesty, integrity and professionalism are of the utmost importance to me and have been throughout my career. My record of successful home sales, numerous awards, accreditations and some of the highest % to list statistics in the region, are not what I reflect back on . . . it is the client's referral of me and knowing what their level of satisfaction was after my guidance. A strong, inherent suit of mine is how I assist my clients in preparing their home for sale (with my team, if needed) and in providing crucial advice and my personal staging tips. Staying educated on the market trends and the wants of the current buying pools have proven to benefit my clients. My services and guidance are a part of my extensive listing services AND at no additional charge. Clients are able to present their home proudly, and I sell it successfully for them using my areas of expertise in extensive marketing well beyond the industry standards. It is I who then takes great pride in seeing my client’s satisfaction after the sale has closed – and they have moved on with their next life’s plan. I am a long-term professional who embodies a background in real estate that is as strong as it is unique. Whatever aspect of the sale or buying process you may need guidance on, you can reach out to me. Resume/Experience in Real Estate and in Communications/Marketing and awards:

04/15/2024

Contract activity for the week of April 7 - 13, 2024, in the Metro DC area rose by 41.9% compared to the same seven-day period last year.

Key Takeaways:
· That’s not a typo – contract activity rose 41.9% last week. We triple-checked the numbers just to be sure.
· With spring break over for all but DC public schools, we’re getting a good look at the spring market, and it’s encouraging.

Why it Matters:
· The news early last week that inflation isn’t really under control clearly means that the Fed isn’t going to lower interest rates any time soon – and in a perhaps counter-intuitive way, that contributed to a very solid week of contract activity.
· Some buyers sitting on the sideline until rates come down may have finally said there’s no point in waiting. The next couple of weeks will tell us a lot.
· And once again, homes sold very quickly. The average days on the market last week was just 15.5, compared to 27.4 this time last year.

04/08/2024

Contract activity for the week of March 31 -April 6, 2024, in the Metro DC area fell by 19.5% compared to the same seven-day period last year.

Key Takeaways:
· Last week was the sixth consecutive week with more than 1,000 homes going under contract – but barely. There were 1,015 newly ratified contracts.
· Prince George’s County was the only one of the six jurisdictions we tracked that posted an increase in contracts – up a very modest 2.6%.

Why it Matters:
· Even though the weather hasn’t felt like it, we are now solidly in the spring market – and contract activity continues to be a bit constrained because of high-interest rates.
· However, it is an encouraging sign that more sellers came off the fence last week – 1,000 more than last year.

04/01/2024

Contract activity in the Metro DC area during the week of March 24 -31, 2024, fell by 11.7% compared to last year's seven-day period.

Key Takeaways:
· That drop looks pretty big, but last week was spring break for many schools in our area. Lots of people were out of town. Last year, it was the first week of April.
· It was also the fifth consecutive week with more than 1,000 homes under contract.

Why it Matters:
· Buyers seem to be getting used to the persistently higher mortgage interest rates – and sellers are as well.
· 1,664 new listings came on the market last week, a 13% increase from the 1,463 new listings last year. A little bump in supply may provide some welcome relief for buyers.

03/25/2024

Contract activity in the Metro DC area during the week of March 17 -23, 2024, rose by 3.3% compared to last year's seven-day period.

Key Takeaways:
· Three of the six jurisdictions we track posted solid increases in newly ratified contracts.
· This was the fourth consecutive week with more than 1,000 homes going under contract
· And once again, homes are selling very quickly. The average time on the market for homes under contract last week was just 22.7 days – more than two weeks faster than last year.

Why it Matters:
· Even though the weather didn’t feel like it, the spring market is in full swing.
· Not only did contract activity increase, but the number of new listings on the market rose 38% compared to last year, with almost 2,000 newly listed properties. That should provide some welcome relief to prospective homebuyers facing very slim pickings for a long time. Supply is still tight, but this helps!

03/18/2024

Contract activity in the Metro DC area during the week of March 10 -16, 2024, fell by 3.5% compared to last year's seven-day period.

Key Takeaways:
· Even though overall contract activity dropped slightly, we’re very encouraged that we’ve now had three consecutive weeks with at least 1,000 newly ratified contracts.
· Prince William County contract activity was unchanged, and the other five areas all had single-digit drops. Not bad at all.
· Homes sold very quickly last week, too – an average of just 17.5 days, compared to 29.5 days last year.

Why it Matters:
· Interest rates dropped a bit for the second consecutive week and now stand at an average of 6.74%. At the end of October 2023, rates were a full point higher, so even though it is highly unlikely that rates will drop under 6% until the third or fourth quarter, we’re happy they aren’t going up.
· Perhaps even more encouraging, there was a very healthy 40% increase in new listings coming on the market compared to last year and a 20% increase from just a week ago. We expect to see new listings rebound in March, and it looks like it’s happening.

03/11/2024

Contract activity for the week of March 3 - 9, 2024, in the Metro DC area rose 1.4% compared to the same seven-day period last year.

Key Takeaways:
· This is the second consecutive week with increased contract activity compared to the previous year and the second successive week with more than 1,000 new contracts.
· Three of the six jurisdictions we track posted increases; two remained almost unchanged, and only Washington, DC, saw a noticeable drop.

Why it Matters:
· The fact that interest rates dipped down slightly last week may have helped spur contract activity, but they’re still close to 7%.
· Homes are flying off the market, selling in an average of 23 days last week compared to 31 this same week last year.

03/04/2024

Contract activity for the week of February 25 – March 2, 2024, in the Metro DC area rose by 10.1% compared to the same seven-day period last year. However, because this is a leap year, the period covered eight days this year.

Key Takeaways:
·We’ll take an increase any way we can, but because of leap year, that 10.1% increase needs some adjusting to give proper context.
· An 8-day week is 14% longer than a 7-day week, so with a fair adjustment, there was a modest 3% drop compared to last year.

Why it Matters:
· No one wanted to see it, but last week, mortgage interest rates increased slightly and are now close to 7%.
· Nonetheless, the very wide gap in contract activity compared to last year is narrowing steadily – and that’s encouraging.
· And homes continue to sell faster than this time last year – one week faster. Last year, the average days on the market was 37; last week, the average was just 30.

02/26/2024

Contract activity for the week of February 18 - 24, 2024, in the Metro DC area fell by 4.1% compared to the same seven-day period last year.

Key Takeaways:
· Mortgage interest rates remain high and ended the week .4% higher than this time last year and about .25% higher than just two weeks ago.
· Nonetheless, buyers are still hanging in there, with Montgomery and Loudoun Counties posting increases in contracts last week compared to a year ago.
· And despite those higher mortgage rates, there was a 4% increase in contracts from just one week ago.

Why it Matters:
· There is a frustrating – and reassuring - consistency to this market. For the last year+, buyers have been faced with higher mortgage rates and low inventory – and too many sellers are sitting on the sidelines.
· The frustrations are obvious, but given the reality that the monthly payment on a median priced home is 60% higher than just two years ago, it is incredibly reassuring that buyer activity has held up as well as it has.

02/19/2024

Contract activity for the week of February 11 - 17, 2024, in the Metro DC area rose by 1.9% compared to the same seven-day period last year.

Key Takeaways:
· It has been over a year since we've seen a week-over-year increase in contract activity.
· Even though only two of the six jurisdictions we track posted increases, this is still a very encouraging sign.
· On top of that, there was also a modest increase in contracts from just a week ago.

Why it Matters:
· Even though new listing activity is still trailing last year's numbers, there was a 6.1% increase in new listings from just a week ago.
· Reflecting the ongoing imbalance between supply and demand, homes that went under contract last week were on the market two weeks less than a year ago. The average days on the market last week was 31.4 days, much lower than the 46.5 days the same week last year.
