Three D.C. Neighborhoods to Watch in 2018 That Offer a 'Small Town' Feel

It’s that time of the year when real estate news outlets and blogs start predicting which neighborhoods will shine in the next year. Curbed D.C. has put forth its predictions, and named three neighborhoods east of the Anacostia River worth watching.

First up is Deanwood, a small neighborhood as east in D.C. as you can get. While in the past many have thought there wasn’t much to it, Curbed D.C. noted that it is now one of the best neighborhoods in the District when it comes to home improvement projects. The “small-town” neighborhood is accessible by two Metro stations, and sees 31.4 percent of homes selling above asking price. 

Listings in Deanwood range from those in need of a bit of TLC, like the two-bedroom at 808 51st St. NE, and those ready for you to move in and enjoy, like updated abode at 5063 Sheriff Road NE

Deanwood’s neighbor Mayfair/Hillbrook is a fast-growing neighborhood that has had median home values skyrocket a whopping 20 percent in the first half of the year, Curbed DC noted. Listings include the beautifully updated row home at 246 34th St. NE and the older, but spacious, four-bedroom home at 3732 Burnham Place NE.

Hillcrest is “filled with tree-lined suburban streets,” Curbed DC noted, adding to its charm. The affordable area boasts listings like the fixer-upper at 3816 W St. SE, and the cozy top-floor unit at 3723 Alabama Ave. NE
