Best Neighborhoods to Buy in DC 2018

Capitol Riverfront | Situated on the Anacostia River and 1 mile from Eastern Market, Capitol Riverfront (aka Navy Yard) has been making quite a name for itself over the past few years. As with so many urban ports that have long served as industrial and business centers, the Capitol Riverfront is in the midst of mindset-shifting revitalization. A mix of residential, commercial, dining, shopping and loads of outdoor activities is the reason why Capitol Riverfront is experiencing the largest development boom in its history. Anchored by Nationals Park, Capitol Riverfront is home to a myriad of eateries such as Cornercopia, Sweetgreen, Bluejacket Brewery, and Takorean. Yards Park is a premier waterfront destination, providing green space and water features…

Take a walk down the U Street Corridor or 7th Street and you’ll be treated to a banquet of cuisines, bars, vintage and furniture stores, and every kind of retail therapy you could possibly ever hope to find. A favorite place to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon.

Shaw, the birthplace of Duke Ellington, is well-located and linked with Metro stops and buses. However, if you hang around the area, you’ll be mostly fine just getting around by foot.

We’ve been watching The Wharf project here at Capital Park Realty for some time now. Check out this blog, and this one, from back when the project first broke ground more than two years ago. The $2 billion, 27-acre construction project down on the Southwest Waterfront currently looks like a big hole in the ground along the Washington Channel, but Phase I is still on pace to be completed in the fall of 2017. If you head down there, you will see more than a dozen cranes at work in the area. The first residential building, which is technically not part of The Wharf but located at the south end of it, is 525 Water, which is scheduled to open in 2016. VIO will be the first official Wharf residential building and will open in 2017. There seem to be updates…

VIO will be the second residential building to be completed along the Southwest Waterfront and the first one that is actually a part of the construction project “The Wharf.” It is set to open in the fall of 2017 and development is already underway.

The building will consist of 112 units over 12 floors. There will be a saltwater infinity pool on the roof with great views of the Washington Channel, Potomac River, and downtown DC. Most units will come with a garaged parking space and balconies with views of the waterfront. Select condominiums will also have private…

Spring in the Nation’s Capital brings two certainties: cherry blossoms and more listings showing up on the real estate market. It has been quite the seller’s market over the winter, with a high demand and low supply of properties in the DC area. The sales price to original asking price is close to 100% right now. While we don’t foresee it turning into a buyer’s market anytime soon, there will be more listings coming available throughout the spring and summer.

Most well priced listings are seeing multiple offers. More often than not, the winning offer is above the seller’s asking price with very few, if any, contingencies. It’s commonplace in DC for purchasers to accept the property “as-is,” and many buyers are choosing to waive any financing,…

With baseball season in full swing, house and apartment hunters may find that apartments near the Nationals Stadium can offer an exciting living location, although the area’s retail, restaurant and nightlife sectors are still blossoming.

Camden South Capitol is among the more newer housing options, offering a slate of amenities and brand new living quarters. And Camden South Capitol apartment rates are a bit more affordable than in other parts of the District, like U Street and Adams Morgan, because this area hasn’t hit the “hip to live here” stride yet. Still, the Southwest waterfront community has much to boast about now and will likely be a burgeoning place in the near future.

Camden South Capitol, at 1345 S. Capitol Street near the Navy Yard Metro…
