Welcome to the slowest news week of the year, in which I will do a lot of recapping, reviewing, and emptying out my notebooks from the last nine months. One thing we now have time to do is play with the American Community Survey data, which NeighborhoodInfo DC has broken out into every denomination an amateur demographer could ask for. Today, here’s a graph of the median home price citywide, vs. the highest and lowest median home prices by neighborhood cluster, over the last 15 years. You’ll notice that the high end is more volatile—perhaps because there’s a lot more room for overvaluation in that spectrum. Also, despite slight declines on both the high and low ends, the average trendline has been positive.
