DC Metro Area Home Sales by Year

DC Metro Area Home Sales by Year

 

When you are considering the purchase of a home in a market area where there are over 50,000 home sales each year, you need to have the advice of a local buyer agent familiar with the local market conditions.

The following market statistics were provided by RealEstate Business Intelligence and distributed to members of MRIS, the regional multiple listing service.

There were 50,528 closed sales in 2015, up 9.4% compared to 2014, marking the largest annual gain since 2009.

2015’s closed sales total was up 34.4% compared to the market low of 37,602 seen in 2008, but was 10.8 percent below 2006’s peak level of 56,641.

Fairfax County had the most closed sales in 2015 with 14,850, which was an increase of 9.6 percent from last year.

Prince George’s County saw the largest percentage increase in sales, where the 9,369 sales in 2015 represented a 14.9 percent annual increase.
