With high demand in the DC real estate market from both investors and owner occupying buyers, sellers can have great expectations. This property was originally priced very optimistically at $559,500., which is higher than what some nearby updated homes have been selling for. You can see recent sales activity in the immediate area here.

It’s useful to note that, while it may seem to sellers and prospective buyers that everything in DC sells above list price, the recent average list to sales price ratio in this area is slightly more than 5% below list price. That said, the listings in this sample were exposed to the market at the end of the election cycle, and through the cold months and holidays.

With the early Spring weather, we’re seeing an early Spring market, which means more listings launched, and a renewed sense of purpose among buyers who are hearing continuing reports of expected increases to mortgage interest rates.

The listing agent for this property was Norris Dodson III with Long and Foster Real Estate, Inc. Joseph Bernstein, also with Long and Foster Real Estate, Inc. assisted the Buyer.
