The longest amount of days for a townhouse to sell was in January 2017 with an average of 29 days, which quickly became even tighter in February in at 14 days and all months in between have been lower . August 2017 reported 11 days on market. Does this mean that prices are going to rise in this segment? Have detached homes in Northern Virginia risen too much to force buyers to purchase a townhouse?
