Bright MLS Weekly Market Report

Bright MLS Real Estate

Week Ending June 30, 2024 
Washington, D.C. Metro 


  • Inventory healthier than last year. The Bright MLS service area had 33,555 active listings for this week, a 27.1% increase from the same week last year. All metro areas have experienced inventory growth over 2023, but inventory is still low by historical standards. 
  • Contract activity above 2023. There were 6,672 new purchase contracts the week ending June 30 in the Mid-Atlantic. For the last three weeks, the number of new purchase contracts has exceeded the same week in 2023, this week by 3.2%. Contract activity has been growing, but low affordability is going to keep some prospective homebuyers on the sidelines. 
  • Prices easing into July 4th week. As seen historically, prices have dipped week-over-week into the week of the July 4th holiday. Landing at $415,000, prices have decreased from last week by 2.4% but remain elevated, up 6.4% from the same week last year. Prices should continue to ease week-over-week as we head into the latter half of the year. en.
