It feels passé to discuss the renaissance of Petworth, so we won’t. Petworth is here, Petworth is excellent, Petworth has come into its own! Could many more awesome things happen to this neighborhood? Yes. Will they? Absolutely! At a certain point though, you, as buyers, just have to focus on what an amazing place Petworth is to live in right now rather than crossing your fingers for the future.
Featuring an exciting mix of single-family row homes and swanky condominiums such as The Montage and Quincy at 14th, Petworth real estate possibilities reflect the neighborhood’s vibrant, multi-generational population. Recent years have shown that Petworth’s brick rowhomes are well suited to updates for 21st-century living.
As DC neighborhoods go, Capitol Riverfront (aka Navy Yard) is among the youngest. As such, it has benefited from growing up around big brothers and sisters, and seeing what works and what doesn’t. Compared to other communities that have grown and changed slowly over time, Capitol Riverfront has been thoughtfully planned out and has a lot to offer to a lot of people.
This wise planning extends to real estate and includes the construction of numerous condos. Armed with the knowledge that Capitol Riverfront would be a popular place to live--and is now one of the most densely populated neighborhoods in The District--the choice by developers to build vertically was a no-brainer. Capitol Riverfront condominiums include Velocity and Capitol Hill Tower
If you meet one or more of their requirements, you may be eligible for a home-buying loan from Veterans Affairs (VA). If so, there are two factors that can help get you closer to financing your new home with a VA loan.
The VA recently increased loan limits and removed state- and county-specific restrictions.
The Capital Park Team website features an advanced search filter for ‘VA Approved Condos Only.’
Some VA approved condos you should definitely know about are Chase Point in Friendship Heights, Residences at CityCenter in Chinatown, and Union Row in U Street. Because VA home loans are often easier to acquire for veterans and/or their families than conventional loans, the VA takes extra care to ensure the viability of the homes they
That’s right--the year 2020 is here! Although we’re not all riding around on hoverboards, these are still very exciting times! In a real estate market as hot as the DMV, there are still plenty of great purchase opportunities. Based on recent trends, new development plans throughout the area, and 40+ years of combined experience selling homes in the DMV, here is our 2020 vision of neighborhoods to keep an eye on over the next 12 months!
Situated in northern Alexandria between Del Ray, Potomac Yard, and Arlandria, Warwick Village should be high up on your list. Originally conceived as rental community of over 600 townhomes, this neighborhood was developed to help house the DC area population boom of the 1940s and eventually sold
Of late, the District of Columbia has seen the development of an all-but-countless number of condominiums and it appears this trend will continue. Interestingly, Washington DC’s borders remain within what was once a 100-square-mile diamond. Now as more and more people want to live here, it stands to reason that the demand for multi-family dwellings--such as condos--will increase.
Additionally, the District’s long-standing restrictions on how tall and wide buildings can be built means an increased number of individual developments--that just keep coming. Unsurprisingly for anyone who has kept up with DC’s real estate trends--or any urban market for that matter--the most sought after condos are situated on or near the water.
Arlington VA is a richly diverse streetcar suburb that deserves the attention of anyone looking to buy a home. Not only will it host half of Amazon’s incoming east coast headquarters—which will require some 25,000 employees—but its countless offerings and great proximity to DC make it an incredibly attractive place to live. Filling out the space between the Potomac River and the deadly straight, 45-degree line, which was once the District’s southwest border, are an eclectic mix of exciting and characterful neighborhoods. Potential homebuyers should take special note of Courthouse, Clarendon, Ballston-Virginia Square, Rosslyn, Crystal City, and National Landing.
Courthouse (aka Court House)
Is this neighborhood named after the courthouse that
Let’s say you want to live in the DC Metro Area, but not right in the district, and you want to live somewhere super classy with reasonable cost of living. You’ll want to consider moving to Alexandria VA for sure. As the southernmost destination of the Metro, Alexandria seems to be the perfect distance from the big city—close enough to keep you in the loop and plenty far for escaping the constant hustle.
Two brand new developments have cropped up to support the relaxing lifestyle that those moving to Alexandria are after: Cameron Park and Robinson Landing. Both combine townhomes and condos and feature green and waterfront landscapes respectively. Alexandria VA is a proper city with a small-town vibe, yet it has the scope to support
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
