Question: What were some of the most expensive homes sold this year in the DMV?

Answer: Happy holidays and new year everybody! I hope you’ve been enjoying this unusually warm weather and reconnecting with family and friends for some holiday cheer, we all need it!

It’s always fun to look back at the most expensive homes sold in our nook of the world, so without further ado, let’s take a look at the most expensive homes sold this year in D.C., Maryland and Virginia. Note: this includes what is entered into the MLS, it’s certainly possible (likely) that expensive homes have traded hands outside of the MLS.

The most expensive home sold this year in all three DMV states is a 16,000 SqFt home built in 2018 that sits on 16.5 acres along the Potomac River that sold for an incredible $48,000,000! That beats out last year’s leading sale by $3M.

While Arlington’s average and median prices are sky-high, it doesn’t have many ultra high-end properties we see elsewhere in the region. Arlington’s most expensive sale this year came from the top floor of the new luxury condo building, Pierce, at $3,920,000. The next most expensive home, pictured above, is a single-family home in Lyon Village, sold for $3,750,000.
