A home that sold in Georgetown earlier this year.
The prevalence of homes listed for $1 million or more in DC has been well-documented. As UrbanTurf reported earlier this year, approximately 25 percent of the homes on the market in DC in May carried a seven-figure price tag.
However, it is one thing for listings to have asking prices above $1 million and another for those listings to actually sell. But it appears that they are doing just that.
A new UrbanTurf analysis reveals that 2017 has been a banner year for million-dollar sales. Through the first three quarters, more homes sold for over $1 million than ever before.
Specifically, 917 homes sold for between $1 million and $2.499 million, 92 homes sold for between $2.5 million and $4.999 million and 13 homes sold for above $5 million. That accounts for about 15 percent of the total volume of sales in the District this year.
To put the volume of high-priced home sales in perspective, 40 percent more million-dollar homes sold in the first three quarters of 2017 compared to the same period in 2015. Going back to 2012, there has been a whopping 124 percent increase million-dollar sales.
