In April 2015, Curbed DC reported that nearly one in five homes for sale in Washington, D.C., cost more than $1 million. This data came from the D.C. Chief Financial Officer, who further reported that the number of multi-million dollar homes rose by 50 percent from 2012 to 2013. In 2014, 18.2 percent of all home sales were above $1 million.

More recently, UrbanTurf reported new findings on luxury home sales in the District. According to their data, home sales above $2.5 million increased 71 percent in 2017 compared to the first two quarters in 2016. Nearly half of the sales were located in Georgetown and Spring Valley.

For sales above $5 million, there has also been an increase by 140 percent during that same time frame, according to UrbanTurf.
