Commenters to the original Good Deal or Not (GDoN) post correctly predicted that this home, in a prime northwest DC location, would get bid up from list price. One commenter posed the question, “do things ever get bid up more than a 100k?” In this case, the spread was $90,000. above list, and yes, sometimes houses in DC get bid up more than $100,000. over asking price.
According to Real Estate Business Intelligence, which is the statistics arm of our local multiple listing system (MRIS), for all of DC in April 2014 the average ratio of original list to final sale price was 99.64%. In the Chevy Chase neighborhood of Washington, DC, where the subject property is located, the average original list to sale price ratio in April 2014 was almost 2% over list (101.76%). What this means is that it is not unusual for properties in this neighborhood to sell above list price, however, this amount over list is not typical.
