About 20% of home sales in the District last year were all-cash transactions. 

8,200 homes sold in the city through the first 11 months of 2022 — and 19.7% of those listings went to buyers paying all cash. In recent years, 17-20% of homes sold in all-cash transactions, so the 2022 numbers are in line with annual trends.

The all-cash neighborhoods in DC are largely the priciest with four of the top five coming in neighborhoods where the median home price exceeds $1 million. 

Below is a sampling of DC neighborhoods and the percentage of all-cash transactions last year:

  • West End: 46 percent
  • Georgetown: 36 percent
  • Spring Valley: 41 percent
  • Kent: 38 percent

In this article, the term “home” is defined as any single-family house, condo or co-op that sold in the city in 2021.
