A home on the market in Shaw

With the fall housing market in full swing, UrbanTurf is taking a look at the neighborhood markets around the DC region. Today, we head over to Shaw. 

Shaw is a neighborhood where the for-sale housing stock breaks down fairly evenly between condos and townhomes, which is represented in 2019 sales where 41 percent of transactions were condo sales. Median home prices were up a bit overall in the neighborhood, with three-bedroom townhome prices popping the most. Overall, Shaw has a more balanced market than other inventory-starved DC neighborhoods, which means that buyers have a little more choice and leverage. Below are some statistics about the Shaw market. 

  • $799,555 -- The median home sales price in Shaw in 2019, up 3.5% from last year.
  • $1.351 million -- The average home price for a townhome with three bedrooms, up 13.5% from last year.
  • 54% -- The percentage of homes that sold within ten days of being listed in 2019.
  • 2.5 months -- The supply of homes on the market in March. 
  • 32 -- The number of condos sold in the neighborhood this year, 41% of total sales.
