Benning Real Estate, Washington DC
Finding homes for sale in the neighborhood of Benning in Washington, DC, is a bit of a challenge. Savvy buyers have been snapping up properties over the past couple of years, resulting in a sharp spike in values and a depleted inventory pool. You can still find some great deals, including condos that can dip down to the low six-figures, but you have to be prepared to move fast.
Also associated with Benning Heights and Benning Ridge, this traditionally blue collar community lies north of the neighborhood of Anacostia, just east of the river. The town dates back to the late 1700s and wealthy land owner “Captain” William Benning, but saw its greatest period of residential development from the mid-1920s to the late 1940s. The bulk of property listings are condos and townhouses for sale, due in large part to the number of row houses—often simple boxy brick affairs.

Benning Neighborhood Information
While not one of the trendier real estate markets in Washington Metro, Benning is transitioning from what was once a neighborhood experiencing significant economic decline. Community leaders are working to revitalize the infrastructure—promoting new business opportunities as well as local amenities. Among recent developments are plans for a new $10 million tennis center to be located next door to the Benning Stoddert Rec Center. The new facility is being financed by the Washington Tennis & Education Foundation which promotes youth development programs in the Southeast DC region.
The Benning Real Estate Market at a Glance - Washington DC
About 22 percent of Benning real estate is detached single-family houses, including some Colonial and a greater number of Capes, bungalows and some Ranch-style structures. The larger percentage of residences are multifamily dwellings, however—duplexes, row houses and low-rise apartment buildings that have converted to condos for sale.
There’s plenty of room for commercial growth in Benning—this isn’t yet a place where you’ll find five-star restaurants or deluxe grocery stores. But for those willing to spend time looking for inexpensive brick row house condos for sale—or other similarly priced properties—there is the opportunity to invest in a community with a bright future ahead.
