Late summer is upon us and fall is rapidly approaching. This time of year is a favorite for many of us, one of them being the real estate market! The initial craze of spring buying is long gone, and so, the prices are reduced steadily without the inventory being too low. Here are our top spots and places to steer clear of for buying a property in the Nation’s Capital.
Top Spots: Trinidad, Park View, SW Waterfront, National Landing, Anacostia
Trinidad has been long-populated by young couples and families as well as college students. It is now on the rise ever since H Street corridor has been booming. Trinidad is almost entirely residential with short walk to NoMa, H Street, and Union Market.
Park view has been slowly turning heads for the past few years due to its diverse and fun community and excellent location. It is sandwiched right between Shaw, Petworth, and Columbia Heights: all equally exciting. Inside Park View, sits Georgia Avenue which is home to many hip eateries and great entertainment.
By now, you have probably heard about the SW Waterfront quite a lot, thanks to the recent development of The Wharf, The Yards, as well as the Audi FIeld. It holds many mid-rise twentieth-century buildings along with newer luxury condos. It’s a prime spot in DC for nightlife, sports, and entertainment.
National Landing is guaranteed to be the new talk of the town as Amazon’s HQ2 is coming to Northern Virginia. National Landing comprises of Crystal CIty, Pentagon City, and the Potomac Yard. Just think about all the jobs and new infrastructure there will be. You definitely won’t want to miss out on this!
Anacostia sits on the other side of the river but that surely won’t stop it! Besides, its already connected with the rest of DC with I-695 and the 11th Street bridge. Not to mention, the 11th Street Bridge Park that is currently undergoing construction. Anacostia includes many row houses, whether you want to move in or renovate.
We hope our guide was helpful and happy house hunting!
