Earlier this month, UrbanTurf began sifting through housing price data from the last decade to find out exactly what has been happening in zip codes around the city, using numbers provided by RealEstate Business Intelligence (RBI).
We started by looking at 20001, a transforming zip code (Bloomingdale, LeDroit Park and Shaw) that saw home prices double over the previous decade and a tenfold increase in the number of condos on the market. Then we took a look at 20015, the relatively stable area that covers Chevy Chase DC.
This week, we are examining 20003. Roughly speaking, that zip code is bordered on the north by East Capitol Street, on the west by South Capitol Street, and to the south and east by the Anacostia River. It includes portions of Capitol Hill, Hill East, and the Navy Yard neighborhoods.
The change in home prices between 2002 and 2007 seems to reveal the big leap in the area’s popularity as well as the housing boom that occurred between 2002 and 2007. During those years, prices of townhouses — the dominant property type in 20003 — and detached homes jumped significantly. Between 2007 and 2012, however, townhouse prices fell slightly while prices for detached homes rose a bit.
Another interesting tidbit is the tripling of sold condos in 20003 over the last decade, and coinciding drop in number of townhouses. (Condo conversions, perhaps?) Coupled with the rise in number of condos sold, however, was a five-fold increase in the number of days that condos spend on the market.
