The median price of a home in the District reached its highest point in history last month, according to the latest data from RealEstate Business Intelligence, a subsidiary of MRIS.

D.C.’s median sale price soared to $460,000 from $405,000 in March 2012, an increase of 13.6 percent year over year. For the entire metro area, the growth was more modest. The median sale price for the region rose 8 percent, to $372,500 last month from $345,000 in March 2012.
