Hi Debbie - your introduction to Takoma Park is very thorough and prospective buyers will have a lot of insight into the community.   There is a very active real estate market and it is an obviously very popular place to live given the ratio of sales price versus list price.   Nicely presented.

This is a great overview of a lovely area!  The increase in average list price and average sold price is amazing...that seems like a much larger increase than many of the surrounding areas, is it?
