Home Price Watch: The Ups and Downs of Cleveland Park: Figure 1
A home in Cleveland Park.

In this week’s Home Price Watch, we look at Cleveland Park, where the varied housing stock has played a role in the trajectory of the neighborhood housing market this year.

While sales volume has risen 34 percent over last year, both the median list price (-5.6 percent) and the average list price (-33 percent) for homes in the neighborhood dropped. Yet, the ratio of the average sold price to the original listing price decreased less than 1 percent year over year.

The reason for this incongruous data set can be tied to the sales of condos and co-ops in Cleveland Park in 2015. This year, 40 condos or co-ops have sold in the neighborhood compared to 25 last year. In contrast, roughly the same number of two, three and four-bedroom single-family homes. The increase in sales of the lower-priced condo/co-op property type coupled with the relatively flat sales for single-family homes has dragged prices down this year.

Here are a few more data takeaways for the neighborhood:

  • Just over half of the 55 homes on the market in 2015 sold in a month or less. Overall, however, homes are spending 17 days longer on the market in 2015 than in 2014.
  • Three-bedroom homes in the neighborhood seem to be the hot commodity this year, as prices have increased 20 percent over 2014.
