The 10 Best D.C. Homes Under $200K

Here are the best available and affordable options around the city

Welcome to a semi-regular feature, Price Points, in which we pick a relatively low asking price and a type of home, then scour Redfin to find the best available options around the city. Today's task: listings asking less than $200,000.

↑ First on the list is this 395-square-foot Cleveland Park studio. This $200,000 studio is fully furnished and is only one-and-a-half blocks away from the nearest Metro. It's also close to Rock Creek Park trails, so anyone who enjoys biking or running should take notice. All utilities are included in the $451 monthly HOA dues.

↑ With $328 monthly HOA dues, this Brentwood one-bedroom condo is up for grabs with granite countertops, hardwood flooring, and a patio. The clothes washing machine is located in the kitchen, so you'll need to feel comfortable cleaning in a fairly cramped space. The $199,900 unit also comes with private parking.

↑ For whatever reason, this Dupont Circle listing describes the studio as "spacious" despite only being 308 square feet. Regardless, this studio isn't too shabby with a walk-in closet and amenities like a rooftop deck and community laundry area. The pet-friendly unit also offers a dishwasher, but no oven unfortunately. The monthly HOA dues total $335. The asking price totals to $199,000.

↑ For $180,000, you can nab this one-bedroom, 613-square-foot condo in Congress Heights. According to the listing, the building has been renovated and comes with an exercise room, laundry facility, and furnished top deck. The monthly HOA dues total $254. The unit features new hardwood flooring and carpeting as well as a washer and dryer.

↑ Say hello to the only three-bedroom unit on this list. This Barry Farm co-op has been remodeled with stainless steel appliances, laminate and carpet flooring, and a washer and dryer. The monthly HOA dues total $512 with amenities like free off-street parking, a fitness room, and on-site management. The asking price totals $179,900.

↑ In Anacostia, you can own this two-bedroom, one-bathroom condo for $179,000. With 834 square feet of space, this top-floor unit has been freshly painted and offers a walk-in closet. It is only two blocks away from the Metro and is pet-friendly. HOA dues total $236/month.

↑ Next up is this Observatory Circle studio with 462 square feet of space and $796 monthly HOA dues. Don't be too turned off by how this condo has the priciest HOA dues out of any other unit on this list. It offers plenty of highlights like a built-in Murphy bed, walk-in closet, "newer fixtures" in the bathrooom, and stainless steel appliances in the kitchen. The hardwood flooring has also been refinished. The condo fee included property taxes, all utilities, and parking. The price tag comes to $177,000.

↑ Time to head down to the Southwest Waterfront. For $175,000, you can own this one-bedroom, 850-square-foot condo with freshly painted walls and updated hardwood flooring. It also offers an enclosed balcony and amenities like a front desk, fitness center, and swimming pool. With $648 monthly HOA dues, the location is only a block or so away from the nearest Metro.

↑ Once again, the Southwest Waterfront has provided a condo under $200,000 that homebuyers should definitely consider. This studio is asking $174,900 with 530 square feet of super sunny space. Expect floor-to-ceiling windows and skylights. The development that this unit is located in also features an indoor pool and 24-hour gym. The monthly HOA dues total $685.

↑ Last but certainly not least is this one-bedroom, 768-square-foot condo directly across from Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling in the Southeast quadrant. This listing has been renovated and overlooks the community courtyard. The kitchen, floors, and bathroom are "newer" with freshly painted walls, quartz countertops, and "newer appliances." There is also an in-unit washer and dryer to top it all off. The monthly HOA dues are $300, while the asking price totals $159,900.
