Real Estate Agent Rap Video: Brian Block Sings About Hot D.C., Northern Virginia Real Estate Market

Posted: Updated:

In case you haven't heard, the D.C. metro area housing market is incredibly hot.

One indication: houses regularly sell for above asking-price, with prices still on the rise.

Another: D.C. has been found to be the least affordable city in the United States, with median housing prices 16.78 times the median income.

Also, D.C.-area renters pay the country's second-highest median rents.

D.C. houses getting sold

"I didn't know I was a rapper and you probably didn't either, at least until I made this video," Block said in a blog post about the video.
