The number of condos and houses that sold in the District last month was down 6 percent from a year ago, but sellers are getting what they're asking.
Long & Foster Real Estate Inc. says the average list-to-sale price in D.C. in March was 99.6 percent. Sellers got more than the asking price in eight of the 15 neighborhoods Long & Foster tracks, i
ncluding U Street, Capitol Hill and Columbia Heights.
D.C. buyers continue to have less to look at, with active listings last month down 12 percent from a year ago.It's a good a time as any to become a seller to take advantage of market conditions so make sure your property is up to the task.
