Churches for Sale in the Washington Metropolitan Area


When it comes to redevelopment projects, churches for sale in the Washington Metropolitan area are a trending thing. They may represent a true niche market—certainly not in the same realm as your typical apartment high-rise or condo complex. But in a region where land is precious and creative solutions are welcome, former houses of worship provide an interesting piece of the real estate puzzle.


A significant part of the story has to do with the march of time, as well as growth and progress. The Washington Metro area is well known for its long history and a tradition of preserving older architecture. Way back in the early days, many neighborhood churches tended to be relatively small—they served their parishes well but they haven’t always translated to the evolution of community demographics in the modern era.
In that way, churches for sale in the Washington Metropolitan area are similar to schools, warehouses and a variety of buildings that have found new uses over time. For example, an historic steam laundry plant on Capitol Hill was recently converted to condos for sale.

St. Thomas’ Parish Church in DC is one example of a development project currently in the works. Another adaptive reuse development is the former Mount Joy Baptist Church in the Capitol Hill neighborhood, now being turned into the Churchill, with 12 upscale residences. Also worth noting is the First Baptist Church of Silver Springs in Maryland’s Montgomery County, which is in the planning stages for 259 apartments, shops and a new replacement church.


There are also cases of small historic churches in older residential communities that have been transitioned into single-family homes or bed-and-breakfast ventures. So whether it’s a large-scale redevelopment with mixed use residential and retail purposes or a much smaller boutique project, enterprising builders and investors shouldn’t ignore one of the most elemental of all building structures, and that’s churches for sale in the Washington Metropolitan area.
