Although sometimes it seems like the majority of DC real estate is out of reach financially to a large majority of residents, the reality is that homes selling between $1,000,000. and $2,500,000. generally make up approximately 8-10% of the market. As the price points go up, that share goes down substantially.
According to RBI, which is the statistics arm of MRIS, the only zip code in the District of Columbia with a median sold price point over $1,000,000. is 20007 (Georgetown/Burleith). The next highest median sold price (probably evened out by the large volume of co-op and condo units in the area) can be found in 20015 (Friendship Heights/Chevy Chase) at $870,000.
The median sold price as of March 2014 for the entire city is $473,125. The lowest median sold price is in zip code 20032 (Congress Heights) at $127,500.

Ed. Note: Before we get into this argument…I’m not exactly sure what mode of transportation is 6 minutes to metro – but since I live nearby – for me it takes about 10 minutes to walk to metro and about 3 minutes to bike there.
