Hillcrest Real Estate, Washington DC

As real estate for sale in Washington, DC continue their meteoric rise in price, many prospective buyers are looking toward the outer fringes. One such neighborhood is Hillcrest in southeast DC, abutting the Maryland borderline. It’s not trendy in an overtly fashionable or urban-buzz kind of way, but there is a trend here nonetheless—as in real estate properties being snatched up at a fraction of the normal cost.

Hillcrest is located east of the neighborhood of Anacostia (and its eponymously named river) in DC’s Ward 7—one of the city’s most underserved sections. Yet, that is starting to change as local real estate values climb and new commercial development gets underway. During the early part of the 20th century, Hillcrest was known as a summer getaway where Washington politicians would build summer homes. In that regard it was similar to places like Cabin John and Takoma Park in Maryland. Nearly a century later the community is enjoying its resurgence, although longtime locals say they’ve never lost their neighborhood pride. There’s still a political presence as well—Washington’s former mayor, Vincent C. Gray lives here.
