Trinidad Real Estate, Washington DC

There are not many places left in Washington, DC where you can still find affordable homes for sale. Trinidad is such a place, even with a recent sharp increase in list prices. It’s nicely located as well, just north of the H Street Corridor and east of Gallaudet University. As for the still relatively low prices, they are part of the neighborhood’s evolving history. Trinidad got its name from a 19th century businessman who once lived on the tropical island. But after the first homes were built, the land was sold repeatedly, until residential development began in earnest in the early 1900s. After the 1968 race riots ripped through the area, unscrupulous speculators forced foreclosures resulting in vacant properties being reborn as crack houses. Trinidad was in a bad way.

In 2009, the Trinidad Neighborhood Association was founded and began working with the ANC and church leaders toward sustained revitalization. Today the community is vibrant and healthy again with colorful murals, a new recreation center, a dog park and real curbside appeal. Homes and condos for sale have played a large part—purchased for bargain prices, restored and renovated.

These tend to have a fairly simple look, often with front porches and various roof lines.
