Prices Up, Sales Down, Competition High: The Takoma Park Housing Market, By the Numbers
UrbanTurf continues to take a look at the housing markets around the DC region and today, we head over to Takoma Park.
For years, Takoma Park has been one of the most competitive housing markets in the area, and that reputation remained intact this year even as prices rose and sales fell.
The median home price in the Maryland city is up 19% year-over-year to $655,000, but sales are down nearly 25% during that same period. Despite the drop in sales, the ratio of sales price to list price for homes in this section of Maryland is one of the highest anywhere in the region, an indication of serious competition among buyers.
