Washington D.C. Condos For Sale
In a city with a population of nearly 700,000 residents, and with over 100 different neighborhoods, real estate housing comes in many shapes and sizes. But it is safe to say that condos for sale comprise a huge chunk of the inventory.
Washington, DC has four major sections—Northwest, Northeast, Southwest and Southeast. It is also divided into eight different wards. You’ll find everything from quiet upscale suburbs (especially towards the north) and high-energy urban neighborhoods, including major street corridors such as the U-Street Corridor and the H Street Corridor.
The District was created as the Federal seat of government with construction beginning around 1791. But the area itself dates back even further, with early colonial farming and waterfront ports such as Georgetown which was settled in the mid-1700s.
Washington, DC has grown and evolved ever since those early days, from Capitol Hill to suburbs close to the Maryland border to the north. The city has gone through its share of adversity along the way, including the aftermath of the civil rights riots in the late 1960s which led to a period of urban blight. But today’s DC presents a picture of smart, sustainable growth and prosperity.
