While Washington County has not been immune to national disruptions in the housing market, the impact was not felt here as strongly as in other parts of the country. Recent data suggests housing sales in the County are picking up and pent up demand is beginning to enter the market.

  • Affordability
  • Value for the money
  • Availability across diverse settings (urban and rural)
