Most expensive homes sold in the Washington D.C. region in 2013
Last year was robust for high-end real estate here. Twenty-nine homes sold for more than $5 million. That was an increase of more than 40 percent from 2012, when 17 sales topped $5 million or more. Just 10 years ago, that number was five.
“People feel more confident in the value of real estate,” said Dana Landry, principal broker of Washington Fine Properties, whose firm represented eight homes on the top 10 list. “That’s the big shift.. . . Every time we sell another house, it builds confidence for the next person to buy a house. Buyers don’t want to be foolish. But if they feel that other people are doing it, then it builds confidence. I would say there’s an extreme confidence in the Washington, D.C., market.”
Kimberly and Daryl are proud to have represented the purchasers of the 3rd and 6th most expensive homes to sell in the Washington DC region in 2013.
