Weekend Open Houses

My weekly open house hunt yielded lots of condos, especially in DC. If you are house-hunting this weekend, remember that you have the power in this market—it's not only about what sellers are offering.  Here are a few numbers about December 2006 DC condo sales from the Greater Capital Area Association of Realtors. Keep them in mind if you hit the streets this weekend:

$406,501: average condo price, down 4.7% from $426,578 in December 2005.
$354,100: median condo price, down 5.6% from $375,000 in December 2005
1,203: number of condo listings, up 42.5% from 844 in December 2005
