UrbanTurf continues to take a look at the housing markets around the DC region and today, we head over to Takoma Park.

Aside from DC's American University Park, it is hard to think of a housing market as competitive as Takoma Park this year. 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. Prices for detached homes with more than four bedrooms have risen 45% this year, as the supply of homes for sale has fallen 36% compared to 2020, and now stands at just a 3-week inventory.

Below UrbanTurf plucked out several other interesting stats about the Takoma Park market.
