Average Sold Price Increases by 5 Percent; Mayor Bowser’s State of the District Speech Reveals Economic Growth

Our agents are excited to serve the District during this economic growth.

The Washington Metro area saw a 14.4 percent increase in dollar volume of sales over last year at this time, the largest increase of its kind in many months. While price increases were flat in other jurisdictions, the District showed a 4.7 percent increase in average price. This is especially encouraging for the District, where D.C. Mayor Muriel E. Bowser delivered her first ‘State of the District’ speech in March, which referenced the District’s economic development stating, “the District is strong and growing stronger. We are the economic engine of the region, accounting for one quarter of the job market, and in the last year, over two thirds of its private sector job growth.”

Each month, Donna Evers, owner and broker of Evers & Co., reviews the residential real estate statistics provided by the Metropolitan Regional Information System (MRIS).

“Our agents are excited to serve the District during this economic growth,” said Donna Evers. “We’ve continued to see that the metro area is a desirable location, especially for working professionals due to mass transit and walkable neighborhoods. Additionally, Mayor Bowser promised in her State of the District speech that the streetcar along H Street and Benning Road will open, which will extend the service to Georgetown. This extension will support the urban lifestyle millennials desire,” she added.

Evers & Co., remains the largest independent, woman-owned and -operated real estate company in the metropolitan area, with 110 passionate and dedicated agents and four offices— two in the District, one in Bethesda/Chevy Chase and one in Virginia. Evers & Co. also has an international membership with Leverage Global Partners.
