Like the idea of living near a historic neighborhood complete with grocery co-op, weekend farmers' markets and a Busboys & Poets on the way? Apparently, so does everyone else who looked at a place in the Takoma neighborhood of D.C. in 2014. Houses on the market have been snatched up in an average of seven days in this last station stop in the District of Columbia. To be fair, the fact that the median price of these homes is a relatively low $380,000, probably doesn't hurt in terms of desirability. However, upon looking at the ten hottest neighborhoods (as compiled by regional residential real estate manager MRIS), there's a wide range in median closing price. On average, homes in the neighborhoods listed after the jump have been been selling in ten days or less.
