Petworth is the Hottest Neighborhood in the Nation for Home Flipping

The average gain of a home flip in the area is $337,000

It shouldn't be too big of a surprise that Petworth is very popular. Earlier this year, Curbed readers deemed the Northwest area the hottest neighborhood of 2015. Now, Petworth residents have something more to be proud of: their neighborhood is the hottest area to flip in in the nation.

According to a new report from Redfin, the average gain of a home flip in Petworth is $337,000, higher than any other neighborhood in the U.S. Other D.C. neighborhoods that fared well included Brookland ($290,000) and Brightwood ($261,000).

In October 2015, DataLensDC reported that home flipping has migrated eastward with hotspots east of H Street, north of Petworth, and east of Shaw. While mapping flipped properties as a proportion of single family home sales in neighborhoods, DataLensDC discovered that Truxton Circle and Mount Vernon Square had the highest percentage.
