As you can probably guess from looking at its construction, the word “renovate” means, at the most basic level, “to make new again” and that is exactly what is happening throughout DC’s Petworth neighborhood. Without going into cringe-worthy metaphors like how the new Safeway on Georgia Ave NW and various new eateries are Petworth’s state-of-the-art kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite worktops. It must be expressed that the gorgeous and thoughtful renovation being done inside Petworth’s rowhomes and condo conversions is a perfect parallel to the renovation of the entire neighborhood.

Especially impressive is the manner in which investors are making Petworth new again. They are not simply tearing down and building

petworth rowhomes for sale

The iconic piece of Petworth real estate is, without doubt, the brick rowhome. The vast majority of rowhomes in Petworth were built in the first half of the 20th century and have shaped not only the physical life of the neighborhood, but the cultural dynamic of the community as well.

An especially notable aspect of rowhomes in Petworth that you are less likely to find in the stately Victorian rowhomes of Georgetown and Capitol Hill, is the presence of a front porch. Additionally, rowhomes in Petworth were designed with working-class families in mind and smack of egalitarianism. Whereas in other neighborhoods congruent architecture is more likely to be found in short bursts, Petworth rowhomes were planned and built by the block. Decades later,

The Armed Forces Retirement Home will soon begin a project on its Northwest DC Campus that is now ten years in the making. On Monday, March 19th, the AFRH issued a solicitation to developers. Paying its operating costs from a trust fund rather than federal appropriations, the AFRH has had difficulty making ends meet over the years, but thanks to some creative thinking and congressional approval, a portion of the 272-acre campus has been allocated for private development. This will create a new revenue stream from which the fund can be topped off.

Though various ups and downs have halted the forward progress of this project, the delays may have been a blessing. Petworth, the neighborhood that shares the AFRH’s northwest border, has undergone a

Georgetown Rowhomes

Thanks to a construction boom following the American Civil War, the dominant housing style in Georgetown is the brick rowhome. Whether you call them rowhomes, row houses, or townhouses; these attached and semi-detached dwellings are icons of class and charm and they do not come cheap. The modest, 1895-built house at 3419 Q St NW where John F Kennedy and Jacqueline Bouvier first met just hit the market for a cool $1,725,000.

The majority of Georgetown rowhomes are Federal or Victorian in style and are quite tastefully unique--many with English basements, offering considerable rental potential. As is the case in many of DC’s historic districts, architectural variance becomes a viable motif, provided that the buildings are well preserved. Georgetown

Early drafts of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act slashed many of the tax incentives for homeownership. For generations of American families, owning a home has been a cornerstone of economic stability and wealth creation. During the tax bill revision process, the key question the National Association of Realtors lobbyists pushed lawmakers on was, “Do we want a country of renters or a do we want a country where people own their own home?”

Most of the changes to the tax law changes relating to DMV real estate market were either very incremental or left unchanged. The mortgage interest deduction is still allowed, except the new cap is $750K instead of $1 million. Real estate investors still retain investment deductions. The capital gains tax exclusion remains
