Mount Pleasant is one of the most established and sought-after neighborhoods in Washington, DC. Due to this, space can be limited and on the pricier side for potential buyers. There are plenty of one-bedroom condominiums available, often in larger complexes such as Embassy Condominiums, Kenyon Street Condo, Renaissance Condominium, Northbrook Condominium, and Park Road Condominium. These may be your best choice in terms of affordability in the neighborhood. Most of these condos are situated on Mount Pleasant Street NW and 16th Street NW. Mount Pleasant offers a great location close to Adams Morgan, the Columbia Heights Metro station, and downtown DC, while providing a small village feel for residents.

Buying a fixer-upper in Washington, DC is a great way to save money and have renovations done yourself, the way you want them done. When flippers purchase a home and renovate it, they are often profiting $200,000-$300,000 when they sell the property in the current DC real estate economy. Cutting out the middle man could lead to a great amount of savings for a home buyer. One neighborhood in the District that offers a number of fixer-uppers is Petworth. More and more of these properties are being snatched up by developers and renovated for a large profit. Petworth is a neighborhood on the rise in the last few years, and it offers bargains compared to nearby neighborhoods Columbia Heights, U Street Corridor, and Shaw.

Petworth is a Washington, DC neighborhood on the rise. It is one of the largest areas in the District by geography, and over the last decade has seen a great deal of investment and transformation. Sprawling north from the Georgia Avenue-Petworth Metro station on the yellow & green lines, this once struggling neighborhood is a bargain hunter’s dream.

The Otis & The Redding condos are selling one bedroom units in on the border of the Columbia Heights  and Park View neighborhoods.  Prices for each unit start under $300K.

The Otis & The Redding condos feature art deco design elements. The contemporary kitchens will include stainless steel appliances, Silestone countertops, and glass tile…

A Columbia Heights property auction will take place next week on Wednesday, February 27 at 1 PM. That’s just one hour after the auction in the Trinidad neighborhood. So if you don’t win the first one, you can head to the next one!

The Columbia Heights property auction is for a three-level 1,116-square-foot townhouse at 758 Fairmont Street, NW between Sherman and Georgia Avenues.  You may recall that that the Sherman Avenue Streetscape project recently upgraded the neighborhood -- adding a median with trees, sidewalks, and more.  The location is also walking distance to the Metro and Howard University.  In addition, the property is just blocks from the shops and restaurants on 11th Street, which the New York Times calls the new “hip strip” in…
