Sales and new contracts saw double-digit growth in June and are now at multi-year highs while the region's inventory shortage continues to shift. The number of Active listings remains historically low, but new listings are increasing at a double-digit rate for the third consecutive month compared to 2012. Median days-on-market (DOM) remains at housing-boom levels of 9 days. Strong demand continues to put upward pressure on median sales price. The Washington DC Metro area tied the record high for median sales price in June.
The District of Columbia eclipsed last month’s record high by $39,000. Demand for smaller units in the market continue to drive a good portion of overall sales growth with consistently strong gains in condo and townhome sales. The demand for townhomes has been particularly strong.
Townhomes led all property segments in sales and median price growth. The median sales price for townhomes in the region is at an all-time high, and the number of active townhome listings is at an all-time low. The conditions appear ripe for continued growth in the region’s housing market, as the rise in new listings will help meet some of the pent up buyer demand. Sellers are noticing the higher price-points compared to the past several years, which is also fueling this growth
