District Heights, MD Homes For Sale

Those looking for truly affordable homes for sale within a mile of Washington, DC, should check out District Heights real estate for sale in Maryland. Home to about 6,000 residents and covering less than a square mile, this vibrant little community has a wide variety of properties, including condos for sale. It also offers a surprisingly large inventory, including foreclosures and short sales.

Once fertile farmland dating back to the original Lord Baltimore, this mildly hilly region was platted for residential development in the early 1900s with a few homes for sale, plus a water tower, grocery story and other simple village necessities. It became incorporated as a city—albeit a very small one—in 1936, and development continued to bubble along at a leisurely pace.

Named District Heights for an obvious reason—an elevated view of neighboring DC—this community is part of Prince George’s County and took a solid hit when real estate values plunged in the mid-2000s. The result has been great news for home buyers, but not so much so for sellers in the area. For more information about District Heights, MD homes for sale, check out the active listings below.
