waterfront living dcPhoto: District Wharf

It is easy to forget that the District of Columbia has a waterfront--except for those that truly enjoy it. Of course, when we hear ‘waterfront living,’ many of us would jump to waves crashing onto sandy coastlines, but the Potomac and Anacostia are no mere creeks propelling old mills. They are mighty rivers, named by the indigenous peoples who once called the area home, into which city-dwellers may escape the urban hustle by means of a single glance. Now imagine for a moment that you started every day with such a glance--from your riverside balcony, with your hot beverage of choice in hand. Sounds pretty fantastic, doesn’t it?

As anyone who has ever thought about real estate would imagine, property on DC’s waterfront comes at a

1.  How much can I borrow to buy a home?
When determining how much you can borrow, lenders may consider your income level compared with debt, your employment status and your credit history. Talk to a lender about getting prequalified for a mortgage before you start shopping for your new home. This can make the whole experience go more smoothly.
Military veterans and first-time homebuyers may be eligible for special government-sponsored mortgage programs. Ask your lender what you might qualify for.

2.  How much money do I need to put down?
To get the best rate and terms for your loan, try to put down at least 20 percent of the purchase price. Although a lower down payment won’t necessarily disqualify you, there is a chance that a monthly private mortgage

The Basics

  • Hire a professional cleaner
  • Make minor upgrades, like new carpet and modern paint colors
  • Plant flowers, trim grass and sweet walkways. The buyer will make a quick assessment from their car, and will often decide there and then whether to look at your house or not.
  • Light it up! Replace those burned-out light bulbs, buy some extra floor lamps and trim the vine growing over your front window. Do whatever you can to let light into the house.
  • Repair all those little things you've been meaning to fix: drippy faucets, stained ceilings, or that back porch gutter that's hanging by a nail.
  • Organize! Especially the pantry, laundry room, cabinets (don't forget under the kitchen sink), and all the other places where clutter has taken

Best Neighborhoods to Buy in DC 2019

Trinidad | Populated by long-time residents, college students, and young families and couples, Trinidad has been on the rise these past several years. Much of this surge is thanks to the renaissance of the H Street Corridor (aka Atlas District). Though the small neighborhood of Trinidad is almost totally residential, a short leisurely walk will get residents to heaps of great spots including the many offerings of H Street and NoMa, as well as the magnetic Union Market. In addition to Trinidad’s two recreation centers, residents looking to get away from commerce and the other trappings of city life benefit from being flanked to the east by the National Arboretum. Though brick rowhomes are the dominant architecture of Trinidad, the somewhat sudden spike
