A home that sold in Spring Valley last year.
For the final edition of Home Price Watch in 2016, UrbanTurf is taking a look at the market in Spring Valley, a wedge-shaped suburban enclave adjacent to American University Park.
The biggest takeaway from the Spring Valley market this year is the trajectory of home prices. Median sales prices rose 14 percent to $1.6 million, making the neighborhood the second most expensive housing market in DC. List prices followed suit, rising $300,000 to $1.9 million.
Rising prices may have dampened demand a bit, as sales volume dropped 19 percent compared to 2015. Inventory in the neighborhood has trended higher this year than last, with five months’ worth of supply on the market in October 2016 compared to 3.67 months last October.
Despite the fact that the inventory of homes on the market in Spring Valley largely consists of detached houses with four or more bedrooms, approximately 50 percent of homes sold this year within ten days of being listed.
Housing data for the legal subdivision of Spring Valley for this article was provided by RealEstate Business Intelligence. Spring Valley is bound by Massachusetts and Nebraska Avenues to the north and east, Loughboro Road to the south and Dalecarlia Parkway to the west.
