This is a special Free Home Buyer Workshop for those who want to buy a condo or home in Petworth. Our Workshops are the first step in a smart and strategic pathway to condo or row home ownership in Petworth and other NW neighborhoods.
The average price for homes sold currently in Petworth to buyers has been $605,561 in 2016. This is up from $560,051 in 2015. The condominium market specifically for Petworth shows average sold prices of $593,814 in 2016 vs. $544,799 in 2015. Single family home prices have been $687,791 for the year, down slightly from an average $691,831 in 2015.
“The entry level condo market in Petworth is expensive, with sold properties on an almost $50,000 price increase from last year,” said Gerard DiRuggiero, Principal Broker of UrbanLand Company. “There are still deals to be had in the one bedroom sector if you are a prepared buyer and ready to pull the trigger. This Workshop is for those who want to escape Petworth high prices as well. Our agents routinely talk people into ‘alternative neighborhood options’ that are still in upper Northwest, and a fair number of our attendees regularly convert into Northeast homeowners.”
