RBI: Zip Code 20002 Home Prices Up 52.87%

Real Estate Business Intelligence housing market statistics for zip code 20002 -- with data for September -- was released October 10.  The RBI report includes all property types: single-family detached houses, semi-detached rowhouses, condos and coops. 

Zip code 20002 includes a very large area that contains H Street, Capitol Hill North, NoMa, Eckington, Edgewood and Trinidad.  It is therefore important to remember sales statistics can vary greatly within a given zipcode.  To illustrate this point I've included below brief statistics for the H Street corridor area to demonstrate the range of values possible.  Contact me for a custom report on your specific neighborhood, your property size and type.

RBI's Detailed Report for zip 20002 shows housing inventory has dropped a remarkable 49.21% compared to September 2011.  Generally, when housing inventory declines buyers must compete for fewer available properties leading to an increase in prices and shorter days on market.  In September the median sold price in zip code 20002 increased 52.87% while the days on market dropped 42.47% to 42.

The Detailed Report also provides a breakdown of sales by property type. The highest sales activity in September was for 3BR and 4+BR townhouses.

  • 3BR houses: in September 2012 there were 23 sales of three-bedroom townhouses in zip code 20002 which sold for an average price of $453,165 -- an increase of 6.52% over September 2011. 
  • 4+BR houses: there were 11 sales of houses with four or more bedrooms which sold for an average price of $633,900 -- a price increase of 12.21% over last year.
