Over the past year, UrbanTurf has been publishing statistical lists that give a picture of the state of the area housing market. For example, in recent weeks, we have been looking at the zip codes in DC and Maryland where buyers are likely paying above asking for homes on the market.

At the request of a reader, we are delaying the Virginia list until next week in order to look at the fastest and slowest selling zip codes in the wider DC area. Below are tables with the six fastest selling zip codes and the five slowest selling zips in the region for 2013.

There are a few interesting takeaways from both tables. For one thing, the six fastest selling zip codes for the region are all in Virginia, and in each, homes have been selling in a week or quicker (on median) this year. In contrast, three of the five slowest selling zip codes are in Maryland.

DC proper did not make either list. A number of city zip codes barely missed out on the fastest selling list (with a median number of days on market of 8) and the 20032 zip, which includes Congress Heights, where homes are selling after about 38 days on the market, was one day short of making the slowest selling list.

  1. What's happening in Great Falls? said at 3:59 pm on Monday November 25, 2013:
    Great Falls is interesting, not in terms of days on market (we expect more expensive houses to stay on the market for more days), but the number of sales - 225. That is a lot of turnover for such an expensive area! Maybe some McMansion dwellers were underwater on jumbo mortgages from 2007-2012 and the recent price increases are allowing them to sell? More expensive homes usually get hit hardest in a housing crash, expressed in percentage terms.
