DC home prices, a matter of perspective

Despite sub-par price growth home values peak in DC
  • The year-to-date median home price in DC is $520,000.
  • Sub-3 percent year-over-year price appreciation ranks DC among the bottom performing metros nationally.
  • Roughly one out of every ten sales in the DC metro involves a distressed home.

When compared to other large metros the Washington, D.C.-Arlington-Alexandria housing market has performed poorly when it comes to year-over-year and quarterly price appreciation. However, when compared only with its historical performance the DC metro has set price records.
