Washington DC Homes (Zip Code 20008) Analysis
Corroborating previous reports that the Washington DC area market is still dynamic and holding value, the highly coveted 20008 area showed higher sales volume than 2007. Another common thread is longer “days on market” -- but, again, the “average sales price as a % of average list price” shows that extra days on market doesn’t always translate to large price reductions. Today, sellers just need a little extra patience and a strong, consistent marketing program.
**although not a large confounding factor in this specific study, it’s important to note that leaps in “avergage sold price” and “total sold dollar volume” in 2008 are, in part, due to more million dollar properties sold in this time-frame.
