Sell a Home in Washington, DC - July 2013 Real Estate Statistics

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams

Like most places in the tri-state area (DC, MD, VA), the city of Washington DC saw some monthly declines in the real estate market from the previous month. This is a typical trend as summer vacation are in full swing. There were 779 homes sold in July, which is an impressive 23% increase from the previous year and a 1.4% decline from June. Despite the seemingly low number of sales, the total value of the homes sold was $492,029,773, a 37% increase from July of 2012 but a 2.5% decrease from June.

The median value of the homes sold in July for Washington, DC was $520,000, marking a 14% increase from 2012 but a 2% decrease from the previous month. The average value of a sold home was over $100,000 higher than the median at $631,617, an 11% increase from July of last year but a 1% decrease from June. Despite these monthly decreases, sellers are still receiving nearly all of their original asking price, 99.2% on average. This constitutes a 2.5% increase from 2012, but a 1% decrease from June.

At the end of July, there were a total of 1,212 active listings on the market. This is about a 19% decrease from 2012. Of those active listings, 897 of them were new listings for the month, a 29% increase from the year prior. Judging by the 790 units sold in June, the 1,212 current listings comprises slightly over a month's supply of homes, meaning that the housing market is well sustained right now, in a full-blown sellers market. A good sign for the market, though, is that houses stayed available for an average of 35 days, which compared to 52 days last year is a 33% decrease. There's no guarantee, however, that the waiting period to sell will continue to drop.
