Year to date, the median settled price for a home in DC is $540,000. (current national median home price is $244,100.) That DC median price includes rowhomes, detached homes, condos, and co-ops. The current median price for detached homes in the District of Columbia is $930,962.
That said, it is surprising that this relatively modestly priced detached single family home defied GDoN commenters’ expectations of selling the first week on the market.
It is an interesting time in DC real estate, where we’ve seen an intense period of sales activity for the past several years, and subsequently corresponding decreased affordability. We’re starting to again see more articles about the next up and coming areas, as the up and coming areas from five years ago have, in many cases, begun solidly arriving, at least from a price perspective. This property is a great example of a home in a location further from downtown, yet at the edge of active commercial development and the Brookland neighborhood, which has seen significant appreciation and market activity recently.
The listing agents for this sale were Kymber Lovett-Menkiti and Virginia Gergoff with Keller Williams Capital Properties (per disclosure above, the same brokerage as the writer). Keith Hawkins with Exit Bennett Realty represented the Buyer.
