Fortunately, the very nature of the greater DC region plays into an unusually wide array of options when it comes to space that can be used for retail purposes. Historic buildings provide numerous opportunities for the restoration and adaptive reuse. Yet at the same time, there is also a natural evolutionary process with brand new construction, including large infill projects that increasingly maximize available footage.

Retail spaces for sale in the Washington Metropolitan area can be found in an incredibly wide array of locations, including DC itself, Northern Virginia and parts of Maryland. Just a tiny sampling of red-hot shopping areas would include Georgetown, the Penn Quarter and Downtown DC in the nation’s capital, Old Town Alexandria, Crystal City, Fashion Centre and Tysons Corner in NoVo, and Bethesda and National Harbor in Maryland. There are hundreds of other great locations of course—DC Metro is a retail paradise!

So what is the advantage of retail spaces for sale in the Washington Metro area, rather than those for lease? It’s about investing—for now and for the future. Owners begin to build equity immediately while having the option of either using the space for their own means or renting it out for income. Commercial properties in the region have continued to trend upward in recent years and there doesn’t appear to be any end in sight.
