Washington DC, Real Estate For Sale
Washington, DC may be the federal government’s epicenter, but it is more than just that. The District is a premiere destination for visitors from all over the globe, a leading business community and one of the nation’s fastest-growing residential centers.
In fact, when it comes to homes and condos for sale, there may be no other part of the country that has undergone such a stunning transformation. For too long, the nation’s capital suffered from urban blight and economic decline. That began to change slowly in the late 1980s, gradually picking up steam as so-called “gentrification” trends came into vogue. These days, terms like “transition” and “revitalization” are more commonly used.

Washington DC Neighborhoods
Washington DC Homes and Condos for Sale
Washington now finds itself in the middle of an ambitious, forward-thinking period of growth with countless new commercial and residential developments that have either been delivered, or are in the process of planning, development and construction. At District Partners, we cover DC in its entirety, from the downtown corridors to outlying neighborhoods. We also keep up with all the modern trends and that means Washington’s myriad of new residential developments.
Among these are “live, work and play” communities like Capitol Riverfront, Navy Yard, and Southwest Waterfront (including the brand-new Wharf redevelopment). Other areas in a high state of change include the 14th Street, H Street and U Street Corridors, plus NoMa and West End.
And then there’s popular heart-of-the-city neighborhoods like Adams Morgan, Capitol Hill, Dupont Circle, Georgetown and Logan Circle with beautiful old row houses and condo lofts for sale. Contrasting with the urban vibe are exclusive and much quieter neighborhoods to the north, such as American University Park, Berkley, Chevy Chase and Spring Valley—tony enclaves where the massive mansions live.
But if you don’t want to spend a fortune for a gracious home in the ‘Burbs or an uber-expensive gothic row house in Kalorama, there are also emerging communities where bargain-hungry buyers hope to get in on the next big thing before the inventory is tapped out. These include Anacostia, Brentwood, Brightwood, Mount Pleasant and Petworth. Of course, “bargains” have to be taken with a heaping teaspoon of salt in the nation’s capital, where list prices have skyrocketed in recent years.
What kind of homes for sale will you find in the nation’s capital? Everything imaginable from beautiful estates to brand-new mixed use condo developments, or, from awesome Victorian and Federal row houses to industrial buildings that have transformed into stunning loft condos for sale.
Is that not enough? Add grand old hotels and apartment buildings that have converted to condos, plus schoolhouses, warehouses, alleyway liveries from a bygone era, modern glass and steel towers and all of your Colonials, Tudors, Mediterraneans, Capes and Craftsman single-family homes for sale.
Plus, you’ll find exciting new modern homes, designed by a new breed of cutting edge contemporary architects.
But enough of homes and condos for sale—there are countless neighborhoods not listed here that are every bit as deserving, along with an amazing array of museums, arts and entertainment, and the world-famous “restaurant row” where you’ll find today’s hottest chefs and ever-evolving new culinary trends.
In a nutshell, this is where big business, newsmakers, politics and the media collide in a 24-hour news cycle, and despite all the fame and fishbowl aspects, DC is also where everyday people go about their lives—living, working, playing and making up one of the most diverse and vibrant communities in our nation.
