A condo that hit the market in April for $1.225 million.
Here is further proof that the DC region is becoming the land of increasingly expensive homes.
More homes priced north of $1 million hit the DC-area market in April than in any month in the last 20 years, according to data from RealEstate Business Intelligence. As far as RBI knows, that’s a new record: their data don’t go back any further.
The total number of new listings priced at $1 million or more came in at 956 in April. That’s up significantly from the previous one-month record of 855 listings set in May 2006. Altogether there were 1,848 listings priced at $1 million or more on the market in April; 820 of those listings were in Fairfax County.
Most of the $1 million-and-up listings that hit the market in April were also in Fairfax County, at 380, followed by Montgomery County at 267 listings and DC at 166.
Assuming a 20 percent down payment, RBI calculates that a person purchasing a million-dollar home would have to be making at least $200,000 or more a year to afford it.
