The Top 10 DC Zip Codes Where Homes Are Selling Quickest: Figure 1

In April, homes in the DC area were spending a median of 11 days on the market, the lowest level for the region in 8 years. But that statistic doesn’t really give a sense of how quickly the market is moving in specific zip codes and neighborhoods.

Corey Hart from RealEstate Business Intelligence provided UrbanTurf with a rundown of the ten DC zip codes where homes are selling the quickest. As the chart below reveals, homes in the zip codes that include neighborhoods like Capitol Hill, Mount Pleasant and Columbia Heights are moving the fastest, selling (on median) in under a week. Those areas were followed closely by the 20015, 20001 and 20009 zip codes.

    Do you know what the slowest moving zip codes are?

    Slowest moving zip code is 20500, but it changes at least every 8 years, sometimes in 4 years.

    Hi Ryan, We'll reach out to Corey and try to find the zip codes where homes are sitting on the market the longest. Shilpi

    I too would like to see the slowest selling zip codes to get a sense of whether I should put my property on the market or not.

    I had no idea that Corey Hart went into real estate after his music career. I bet he still wears his sunglasses at night and never surrenders.

    Everything north of East Capitol Street on the Hill is 20002, so it's much larger than just H Street NE & Eckington.

    Do you know the average number of days for homes in Takoma Park, MD (20912)? I live there and it seems like homes are flying off the market in Takoma right now, and have been for the last couple of months.
  1. The Editors said at 5:24 pm on Friday May 17, 2013:
    Joe, The median days on market for 20912 is 19. We'll publish a full list of zip code statistics next week. The Editors
