1 in 3 Homes Sold For Above Asking Price in DC Last Year
Thirty percent of homes sold in the District last year fetched more than their original listing price, based on a recent data analysis by UrbanTurf. This is up from just 10 percent of homes selling at a premium in 2019.
Just over 2,900 of the 9,650 homes sold last year sold for above asking price, based on data provided by Bright MLS. However, in certain neighborhoods, the proportion of homes that attracted multiple offers was much higher.

There were several other neighborhoods where more than 30 percent of homes sold went for above asking, including Petworth (39%), Deanwood (38%), Brookland (38%), and Capitol Hill (36%).
