Adams Morgan Real Estate, Washington DC

Over the past several years, real estate for sale in Adams Morgan became such a hot item in the Washington DC marketplace that the inventory nearly became extinct. Real estate agents, commercial developers and community leaders have been attempting to replenish the dwindling stock by planting pieces of discarded brick in the few vacant lots that are left and watering daily. In a few isolated instances, new modern glass and steel towers have poked their angular heads above ground, searching for the sun’s nourishing rays.

Located in the District’s northwest sector, the neighborhood is best known for an abundance of brightly colored antique row houses as well as grand old Art Deco apartment buildings that have converted to condos for sale in Washington DC. You’ll also find more modern structures as referenced above—now fully formed and offering uber-hip lofts and flats perched over ground floor retail.

Historically known as a melting pots for immigrants, the neighborhood fell into urban blight during the 1970s. Change was ushered in over the following decades as a wave of hot DC nightclubs paved the way for residential gentrification.
