With the summer housing market underway, UrbanTurf is taking its annual look at the neighborhood markets around the DC region. Today, we head over to Takoma.
The market in Takoma has consistently been one of DC's more robust in recent years and a place where single-family homes have been relatively affordable. However, that may be changing. Home prices are up 27 percent in 2019, however that doesn't appear to be deterring buyers as the contract ratio last month hit 3.5. Below are a few other statistics that UrbanTurf pulled out about the neighborhood market.
- $627,250 -- The median price for homes sold in 2019 in Takoma, up 27 percent from 2018.
- 99.9% --The median sales price to original list price ratio in June.
- 3.5 -- The contract ratio in June (the total number of homes under contract in a given period to the overall number of active listings), one of the highest ratios in the city.
- 20 days -- The supply of homes on the market in June.
