Welcome to the new and improved RamsburyGroup.com, and to our freshly minted blog! With new partnerships formed in 2011, and new endeavors underway, we felt it was time to bring our website up to par with the direction that The Ramsbury Group is taking in the DC metro area.
You can find out about The Ramsbury Group throughout the site, and if this is your first exposure to us, you can also take some time to get to know the team. However, we also want to let you know what you can expect from our blog moving forward.
The Ramsbury Group blog is going to focus largely on understanding local market statistics, and the translation of national news into local relevance.
With any blog posts related to DC area real estate stats, we will always attempt to keep things granular enough to be relevant and meaningful to area residents and future residents alike. Each post will focus on a small enough market area to provide a tangible benefit to home owners or home buyers in that area.
That said, we also want to create as much meaningful content as possible, so look for us to cover specific areas over a pre-determined cycle. For example, we are not going to post exclusively about Georgetown, but we will touch on Georgetown on a regular interval.
Translating The News:
This idea is quite simple. The vast majority of news we hear regarding the real estate market is on a national level. We can tell you, if you are a home owner, or home buyer in the DC metro area, this news has little to do with your actual ownership situation, or buying process. This is especially true in the DC area, which continues to be one of the strongest real estate markets in the country. However, even DC area news taken as a whole is of little relevance to individuals.
It is cliché, but for good reason, real estate is local; extremely local in many cases. So, look for us to bring to the table our thoughts on local aspects of the market any time the major news outlets are discussing major national real estate news.
At the end the end of the day, both directions our blog is going to take ultimately serve the same purpose; to provide relevant and meaningful real estate information to DC area residents or residents to be.
Stick around for a while, and please, let us know if we’re accomplishing that goal!
