The Maryland Movers Present the Spotlight on Washington DC

Washington DC is pretty much synonymous with politics, power and well…cupcakes these days. Many people who work in Washington DC commute from Maryland daily because of the real estate market in DC. Washington is synonymous with all types of museums and landmarks like the White House, the Capitol and the Lincoln Monument of course. It's no wonder it's a hotspot for tourists and homebuyers. There are plenty of different neighborhoods with residential properties at various price points. Georgetown for example or living close to iconic buildings like the Supreme Court means you'll have to shell out the big bucks for a home. Georgetown is one of the oldest and wealthiest areas of the city, with a median asking price of around $1 million. Thanks to the neighborhood amenities such as nearby shops, restaurants and bars, the real estate in Georgetown is pricey to say the least. But there is plenty of variety in terms of housing in this part of Washington DC so you can find a one-bedroom condo further away from the main M street in Glover Park for about half a million dollars.

For more affordability, the local Maryland movers learned that you can find a great deal in the Dupont Circle, Adams Morgan or even Logan Circle area. These neighborhoods are also close enough to the Washington DC areas. Columbia Heights also joins this list of living in the heart of DC, but still relatively cheap. You can find condos for about $324,000. Capitol Hill, zip code 20003, has about 10% of its homes priced at around $334,000. If you're looking for a much cheaper residential area, looking east of the Anacostia River will be best. The local Maryland moving specialists found out you can buy a 3-bedroom, 2.5 bathroom in the area for $335,000. And better deals are found just next door in Congress Heights. Deanwood is great for nature lovers and has homes priced at around $163,000. It's home to Fort Dupont Park and is an easy commute to many part of Washington DC.
