Home prices in DC proper increased 10.1 percent in September from the previous year, as pending sales rose to their highest level for the month in a decade.
A report released by RealEstate Business Intelligence (RBI) on Monday revealed that the median home price for the city rose from $465,000 in September 2014 to $512,000 in September 2015. Prices also saw big gains in Falls Church (9.3 percent) and Arlington (8.5 percent), while rising just 2.6 percent in the region as a whole.

Increasing prices did not deter buyers, though. There were just over 4,100 closed home sales for the region in September, the highest level for the month since 2006 and a 15.4 percent increase over last year. Pending sales hit 4,781 in September, an increase of 12.5 percent compared to last year.
Median sales prices by jurisdiction.
From the RBI report:
All market segments showed increases in the number of closed sales year-over-year. Detached single-family sales were up the most with a 20.3% increase to 1,984 sales. Condo sales increased by 15.2% to 1,113 and townhome sales were up 7.3% to 1,020.
Here are a few other interesting statistics from the report:
- Inventory in the region rose to 12,955 active listings, the 24th month in a row that inventory has increased. The total number of active listings equates to 3.2 months of supply, still solidly a seller’s market.
- Median days-on-market increased to 27, just one day below the five-year average for the month.
The area that RBI analyzes includes DC, Montgomery County, Prince George’s County, Alexandria City, Arlington County, Fairfax County, Fairfax City, and Falls Church City.
