Location, Location, Location

The closer the home sits to the business districts, the higher the value of the home. Generally speaking, homes in the northwest quadrant of DC (1st, 2nd, and 3rd wards), have a very high value. Homes in the ortheast (4th, 5th and 6th wards) are more affordable, but are also smaller. There are less homes in the 7th and 8th wards, as these areas are almost strictly business.


If you have ever been told that bigger is better, you’re right… or wrong. Just depends on how you look at it. One thing is for certain, bigger is more expensive in DC. This goes without saying, but the larger the home, and the more rooms in the home, the higher the cost. Finding a home with more than three bedrooms in DC can be difficult if you’re trying to stay under $300,000.


Homes with extras and luxuries undoubtedly cost more. It’s rare to live in a home with a pool in DC, but if you decide to purchase one, it will cost you. So if you want some great rare features in DC, you’re going to be paying prime dollar for it. A home with granite countertops, vaulted ceilings, or even more rare – a pool, will cost much more than a typical home. These upgrades are very worth it when considering the investment which they are for you.

Historic Value

Many homes are well over 100 years old and have been home to many prominent members of society, a factor that greatly increases the value of a home.

Washington DC, being the capital of the United States, ranks ninth among the largest metropolitan areas of the country. Those wanting to purchase homes for sale in Washington DC have various choices to make, and each will effect prices that vary from one area to another. Overall, Washington DC has a very low rate of home ownership as only 42% of DC residents actually own their homes. Nationally, about 65% of Americans own real estate. With expensive housing and the high number of politicians and short term DC residents, this higher rental rate makes sense.

Although the economy of Washington DC remains strong, the population within the city itself hasn’t grown much in recent years. Between 2000 and 2010 DC grew for the first time since the 1940′s. According to the 1950 census, the population of Washington DC was 802,178. With increased transportation and growth of the suburbs, the population declined for nearly 50 years until its recent increase. According to the 2010 census, Washington DC has a population of just over 600,000 people.

With such a large city and lower number of available DC and Maryland homes for sell, our website services are free and available to assist you in the steps of finding and purchasing homes for sell in DC and Maryland areas.
