[ 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.
Again, a few less homes from the previous month, with a total of 54 homes sold in August 2022. Are the increasing interest rates squelching this red hot market? Time will tell. We quite a bit below the 5 year average of 70, we will watch to see if this will continue with interest rates climbing. We can't predict all the changes, so we'll just have to watch the market for cues.
Currently there are 148 homes on the market, fewer than the previous month again, though still higher than the 5 year average of 131. Numbers here 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 a little less than last months 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 August shows us a healthy increase to a $795,000 Sold price, higher than the five year average of $722.570. We will watch what happens next month. Prices have continued this up and down movement because of COVID, so we just need to be prepared.
The average home was sold in 14 days. Less than last month, and identical to the 5 year average of 14 days. Is this market heating up or slowing down? Either way, those who were looking for a home didn't take long to decide. We'll just have to watch the next month.
The ratio of sold price to original list price is 98.7%, about the same as last month and perhaps moving towards a wiggle room for buyers while the prior 5 year average was 99.5%. 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.
