While the percentage of all-cash sales is down slightly overall compared to previous years, it’s still an attractive option for a large number of DC area buyers.

Looking at the first eleven months of 2019 alone, cash buyers made up about 17-percent of all homes purchased in the District. Previously all-cash transactions had been holding around 20-percent or even higher.

Don’t let its zip code fool you, Spring Valley is decidedly suburban. This DC neighborhood may be slightly less well known than others in the area, but its residential options are certainly impressive.

5th Avenue in New York.....North Lake Shore Drive in Chicago.....Turtle Creek Boulevard in Dallas and Louisburg Square in Boston are widely recognized as the most expensive streets for residential real estate in these cities.  This begs the question of what is DC's most expensive street?
