Washington, DC may have been the most exciting city in America in 2012. We had front row seats to the Presidential election. We watched new restaurants open from award-winning chefs like José Andrés and Mike Isabella. Our skyline once again became dotted with cranes — the ultimate indicator we have exited the economic crisis and are building for the future. And the Redskins, Nationals and Capitals all made it to the playoffs.
The impact of this good news in the residential real estate market is clear. Our firm’s sales volume was up 51.9% year-over-year, rising to over $1.3 billion. RBI Intel’s latest data notes that prices across the region have reached record highs. And The Wall Street Journal is predicting prices to rise based on tightening inventory in 2013.
The residential real estate market is improving quickly. If you are considering selling or purchasing real estate in the Washington Metropolitan Area or around the world in 2013, it would be our pleasure to be of service.

Market conditions have been quite strong during what is typically a slower time of year, with nearly $248m in closed sales and pending contracts in the last 90 days.

- Days on the market has come down by nearly 1/3 for this segment as well
- Average selling prices for SFH homes in the historic Town of Telluride have climbed to $1,027 psf
We have seen a brief slowdown in showing activity since the presidential election; though that can be partly attributed to seasonality, with most closings on schedule for before the first of the year in the interest of securing lower than forecast capital gains rates.
As to trends readily identifiable in this market, the highest quality assets offering perceived value in the best locations, be it ski-in/ ski-out locations or in the heart of our historic core area continue to generate the most interest and strongest pricing.
To a prosperous New Year…
