While Washington D.C. continues to hold the world’s attention, The Agency D.C Metro reports that the real estate market is as busy as ever. The region sees continual turnover in residents on a local, national and international level, especially after an election year. The Agency’s annual report, The Red Paper, noted that in 2020, the market saw single-family home sales rise 4% with median prices rising 6% over 2019. The market was re-energized by summer after the initial effects of the pandemic.
Emotional reasons fueled the desire to move among buyers across the D.C. region. If you didn’t like your kitchen before the pandemic, you certainly detested it by spring. Buyers hit the market seeking dual offices, a backyard and a swimming pool, which never used to be a coveted amenity in the area. Buyers faced low inventory as demand ticked up, creating multiple-offer scenarios, as winning bids offering no contingencies for inspections and financing gained the upper hand.
The Agency D.C. Metro opened its doors in November, with a team of 30 top-producing agents, led by Nurit Coombe. The team, which sold $250 million in real estate in 2020, is hard at work representing some of the region’s most exceptional properties, three of which are featured below.
