According to towneresidential.com, Washington D.C. real estate market statistics improved as house sales increased from March to April 2014. Meanwhile, the Washington Business Journal reported that active listings of homes valued $1 million and up also rose by 33.5% from a year ago, giving buyers more options. Indeed, the real estate market is booming.
Here’s a detailed research on the present condition of the housing market in the district, according to Richmonfed.org:
