DC home prices hit a record high this year with a median sales price of $460,000 in the city. That’s the highest median sales price ever in the District of Columbia and a 13.6% increase from last year according to RealEstate Business Intelligence.

Home prices in Northern Virginia experienced an even steeper increase between March 2012 and March 2013. Alexandria City prices rose 24.4% to a median of $487,500, and home prices in Falls Church City were up 37.7% to $631,000.

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!

Cathedral Commons is coming to Cleveland Park in Fall 2014!  What the heck is that?  It’s a mixed-use development including 137 apartments, 8 townhouses, retail, and parking.  The project will occupy 2 blocks of Wisconsin Avenue (between Macomb and Idaho) in view of the National Cathedral.

The cornerstone of Cathedral Commons will be a new 56,000 sq. ft.

This has been a contentious project from the start.  Some local residents are…
