Homes in Congress Heights.

UrbanTurf continues its annual look at the neighborhood housing markets around the DC region as we head over to Congress Heights.

This year is just as busy as 2020 for the Ward 8 neighborhood when it comes to home sales, with one big difference: home prices are much higher. Prices in the neighborhood are up 26% across the board this year, with three-bedroom townhouses leading the way. The other thing that has changed in 2021 is that there is a lot more inventory for homebuyers to choose from. A year ago, there was a month's supply of homes on the market; last quarter, there was an almost three-month supply. 

Below UrbanTurf plucked out several other interesting stats about the Congress Heights market.

  • $422,500 -- The median home price in Congress Heights this year.
  • 117-- The number of homes sold this year, down 2% compared to 2020.
  • 41% -- The number of homes that sold in ten days or less this year.
  • 98.9% -- The average sales price to original list price ratio in Congress Heights.
