New, 3 comments

For this week's Least Expensive meet Capitol Hill's up-and-coming neighbor: Hill East. Located between Capitol Hill, Pennsylvania Avenue, Anacostia River, and East Capitol Street, this gem of a neighborhood has everything a home buyer is looking for: convenient access to downtown, plenty of housing options, and deals, deals, and more deals. While most DC residents don't know Hill East from Trinidad or Hillcrest, we've a feeling that Hill East will become the new Capitol Heights, which became the new Eastern Market, which became the new...


10. 1520 Independence Ave
Asking Price: $399,900
Square Feet: 856
Price Per Square Foot: $467
The Lowdown: To start our list, we've got a 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo located blocks from the Stadium Armory Metro. Featuring hardwood floors, a beautiful kitchen, and gorgeous bathrooms, this is great for someone with a taste for luxury on a beer budget. And if you like to jam out, then you're in luck: this unit has a built-in stereo system. Just make sure to install soundproof walls to keep the neighbors happy.


9. 239 17th St
Asking Price: $385,000
Square Feet: 916
Price Per Square Foot: $420
The Lowdown: This Colonial row house had its price reduced from $510,000 and has 2 bedrooms, 1 bath, and convenient access to the Stadium Armory Metro. Built in 1921, the house "needs TLC" for it to realize its full potential. Based on the listings' pics, this is for a buyer who is ready to tackle a worthwhile project and is not of the faint of heart.


8. 1391 Pennsylvania Ave
Asking Price: $365,900
Square Feet: 732
Price Per Square Foot: $500
The Lowdown: One of two condos listed in this pet-friendly building, this 1 bedroom, 1 bath unit has the amenities perfect for someone with a busy career: quick access to downtown and The Hill, close to Harris Teeter, parking, gym, and a business center. There is a $397 monthly HOA for this unit.


7. 1391 Pennsylvania Ave
Asking Price: $349,900
Square Feet: 684
Price Per Square Foot: $512
The Lowdown: Located in same building as the previous one, this 1 bedroom, 1 bath condo is a bit smaller, and has south-facing windows, in-unit laundry facilities, and a "spa-like bath" to soak your stresses away. The monthly HOA for this condo is $365.


6. 420 16th St
Asking Price: $329,900
Square Feet: 706
Price Per Square Foot: $467
The Lowdown: "ONLY 5 UNITS REMAINING" in this building, and three of condos made this list. This 2 bedroom, 1 bath condo is located between the Potomac Ave and Stadium Armory Metros. Featuring in-site laundry, plenty of natural light, granite counters, and a low monthly HOA of $246, this seems to be a "FANTASTIC OPPORTUNITY". But be quick before you lose out.


5. 1405 East Capitol St
Asking Price: $324,900
Square Feet: 556
Price Per Square Foot: $584
The Lowdown: This Art Deco 1 bedroom, 1 bath condo definitely appeals to the buyer with an eye for aesthetics. With plenty of sun, hardwood floors, and an "upgraded kitchen with granite countertops, glass cabinetry and glass backsplash", the condo also has additional storage space to store your well-thought design purchases. And the back porch, the awesome grill, and outdoor entertaining space just make this deal sweeter.


4. 220 13th Ave
Asking Price: $324,900
Square Feet: 558
Price Per Square Foot: $582
The Lowdown: Take a virtual tour of this 1 bedroom, 1 bath unit located several blocks northeast of Eastern Market Metro. If you speak fluent "Real Estate-ish", then you can gather from the listing that this unit has oak floors, a walk-in closet, a "trendy S&G kitchen", and "generous LR with FP". (Translation: stainless steel appliances, granite counters, and a nice-sized living room with a front porch.) With a low monthly HOA of $252, this might be the your SE nesting spot.


3. 420 16th St
Asking Price: $309,900
Square Feet: 686
Price Per Square Foot: $452
The Lowdown: Just like listing #6, you may need to act fast to seal the deal on this 2 bedroom, 1 bath condo in a 1947 building. If the stainless steel kitchen appliances and the offer of free storage space doesn't sound enticing, we're not sure what is.


2. 233 Kentucky Ave
Asking Price: $298,900
Square Feet: 644
Price Per Square Foot: $450
The Lowdown: WOW! Or something like that. Reduced from $309,000, this 1 bedroom, 1 bath condo is considered a 10. (Not sure what if their scale is 1-10 or something else.) Located in a pet-friendly building, this condo has all "the bells and whistles" one wants for this price point, including oak floors, in-unit laundry, and a kitchen with stainless appliances and granite counters.


1. 420 16th St
Asking Price: $229,900
Square Feet: 596
Price Per Square Foot: $386
The Lowdown: And the winner of the least expensive property in Hill East is a 1 bedroom, 1 bath condo in the same building as listings #3 and #6.
