The Northern Virginia real estate market continues to move along briskly. Whatever uncertainty may have developed over the tax bill, and the home mortgage deduction related to it appears to have already been baked into the equation. Interest rates remain relatively low and demand relatively high. Northern Virginia tile and stone trends move in general lockstep to real estate market conditions. Hence, Country Floors attempts to stay in touch with what our clients are thinking.
That said, here is something to consider: “’We’re on the other side of the housing recovery, and the real estate market looks quite different than it did 15 or even five years ago,” said Zillow chief economist Svenja Gudell. “We have a huge generation entering the market. They really want to be homeowners, and they’re faced with an inventory crisis that leaves them with few options.’”
Let’s unpack for a minute the sheer size of the generation entering the marketplace in what is largely a seller’s market. Any thoughts on Northern Virginia tile and stone trends must include the inherent durability of the product group. In a design plan, there are finishes, such as paint and wallpaper, that can obviously be changed as trends come and go. Tile and stone, on the other hand, are solid durables that, when properly selected, become a true investment. This is highly germane for a generation of homeowners about to make a big step and is a point we strive to make to this demographic segment in our showroom interactions.
We have curated images in this post of a few elements that make sense for this type of client to consider. For example, glass mosaic backsplashes, ceramic tile backsplashes, natural stone flooring, and terracotta tile all of which are perfect. Natural stone kitchen countertops and natural stone vanity tops also offer potential product lifecycles that produce amazing long-term value for the homeowner.
