Real Estate in the Time of Coronavirus

Our dear friend and colleague, David Bediz, recently authored an article in The Blade on the current state of the market in the time of Coronavirus. Kara was quoted about her recent listing on Capitol Hill that just sold for $51,000 above list price. Check it out here.

“Some properties, like the recent listing at 142 Kentucky Ave., S.E. in Capitol Hill, listed by my colleague Kara Johnson, received three offers and sold in just 4 days.

Kara, a long-time agent at Keller Williams Capital Properties, attributes her success to the character of the property, its price and the desirability of the location. “It just fits for so many buyers out there. It was a great price and it was move-in ready,” she said.”

DC Home Prices Break June Records

Screen Shot 2019-07-26 at 5.08.18 PM
Prepared by the Greater Capital Area Association of REALTORS® based on analysis of Bright MLS multiple listing data by MarketStats by ShowingTime.

The median price for District home sales reached a new June record of $620,000 last month, according to the Greater Capital Area Association of Realtors (GCAAR).

  • The median home price in June was up 2.75% from the June 2018 median sales price of $603,000.
  • This is up 57% percent from the June 2010 sales price of $385,000.
  • The total number of June home sales, 857, was down relative to June 2018 – 890, representing a 3.7 percent decline.
  • Finally, half the homes sold in June were on the market 16 days or less prior to contract,  which is much less than the 26 days on market in June 2018.  

The recent GCAAR release provided the following analysis, “Supply remains scarce relative to demand, continuing to drive a strong seller’s market.”

Kara and Wayne are ready to represent you!
