Market Report - 20001 - Washington, DC NW (Logan--Shaw) 2022 04

Real Estate Agent with RLAH / @properties DC / MD / VA


[Logan Circle Homes This is the neighborhood in Washington, DC.  Everyone wants live here, or to come here to eat and enjoy the city.

Logan Circle is the quintessential NW DC neighborhood.  It simply looks and feels right, without the attitude one finds with the usually older & more established NW neighborhoods.

Penn Quarter, closer to downtown/ Penn. Ave., has the nightlife, clubs and Capital One Arena.

Shaw is the place to be and the neighborhood has a great feel of new & old woven together.


Only a few more homes from the previous month, with a total of 97 homes sold in April 2022. We are still a decent amount above the 5 year average of 84, a good thing and hopefully a trend that will continue.  We'll continue to watch numbers as we move through spring.  We can't predict all the changes, so we'll just have to watch the market for cues. 

Currently there are 165 homes on the market, more than the previous month, though still higher than the 5 year average of 137. Numbers remain above average which is good, but we don't know if they will dip again in the crazy market as has happened with regularity since the lockdown ended, only time will tell. With this ratio, we are once again at the same as last months at 2.1 Months of Supply, which is nearly equal to the 5 year average of 2.0 months, and a decrease from the last month; this number still continues to remain low and indicates strong demand in this neighborhood even with COVID.  That continues to indicate the desirability of this neighborhood and expected upward pressure on pricing. 

Activity in April shows us an increase to a $739,000 Sold price, which is higher than last month and above the five year average.  We will watch what next month will hold. Prices will likely continue up and down movements because COVID is still here, so we just need to be prepared. The prior five year average is $665,300. 

The average home was sold in 13 days.  A few more days than last month, and a few more days than the 5 year average of 10 days. This market is speeding up out of spring, but COVID will have it's way and it may slow down again. Those who were looking for a home didn't take long to decide.  This doesn't indicate a slowdown, and again, we'll just have to watch the next month. 

The ratio of sold price to original list price is 100%, the same as last month and zero wiggle room for buyers and about the same as compared to the 100% average for the prior 5 years.   This still remains a wonderful neighborhood to call home.

This neighborhood bears little resemblance to that of even a decade ago, even as it struggles to maintain reminders of it's role in local history, and yes, this is a favorite among people who want to 'feel' their living in Washington, DC. This zip code ranked #24 in Washingtonian Magazines Great Places To Live 2019 issue, which ranked the 100 priciest zip codes in the greater Washington DC metro area.
