Real Estate Fresh Finds: Dec. 20

Real Estate Fresh Finds is a weekly selection of newly-listed properties in the District, brought to you by Real Living At Home. 

Since the Christmas/Holiday season can be a bit slow for new listings, we figured rather than giving you a blah list of the few homes to hit the market this week, we’d highlight some notable sales that closed on either Christmas Eve or Day. We went back 15 years in the MLS to see what and how many were really closed on the holidays and while the average per year is fairly low, several years have boasted 10+ closings just in the District.

An average of just over 5 properties have closed per year over the last decade and a half on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. We’re betting that almost none of those actually had one of those dates originally written up in the contract.
