The District of Columbia Housing Monitor
is a new quarterly report produced by NeighborhoodInfo DC and funded by the Fannie Mae Foundation that follows housing conditions in Washington, D.C. The report tracks residential sales prices, changes in the housing stock, and the supply of affordable housing. Findings from the inaugural issue of the Monitor
* Sale prices of homes in the District of Columbia reached new heights in 2005, but by the end of 2005 the market showed signs of cooling.
* Homebuilding in the city reached a 40-year high last year and continues to accelerate, with the largest growth in condominium units.
* Thousands of the city's federally assisted housing units are at risk of loss in the coming year.
