ROCKVILLE, Md. – RealEstateRama – The average time residential properties in the region were available on the market dropped to 19 days in April, as REALTORS® continue to help homebuyers in a market faced with limited inventory. The median sold price for residential properties was $590,000, up 10.6% compared to April 2020.

The April information is the latest from the Greater Capital Area Association of REALTORS® (GCAAR), representing sales data for the Washington, D.C. and Montgomery County markets.
The median sold price for residential properties for April represented an increase of 5.8% compared to March 2021.

In Montgomery County, the median sold price was $535,000, up 6.5% from March 2021. In D.C., the median sold price was $660,000, up 4.8% from the previous month.
Average days on the market were 16 in Montgomery County and 23 in the District.
“A shortage of homes available for sale, paired with relatively low mortgage interest rates, has created a unique situation where sellers and buyers need to be prepared with the tools and strategies they need to stay competitive and achieve their goals,” said 2021 GCAAR President Jan Brito.

There was a 1% month-over-month decrease in new contract activity with 2,664 New Pendings; a 5.5% month-over-month increase in All Pendings (new contracts + contracts carried over from March) to 3,213; and a 17% increase in supply to 2,708 active units. (more)

“This market shows the value REALTORS® bring to the table as they’re guiding clients through the homebuying and selling process during a particularly active time, which requires a high level of knowledge and expertise,” said GCAAR CEO Edward R. Krauze.
