If interested in buying a home in Washington, D.C., double check which areas are the most affordable with the above graph. Real estate research site NeighborhoodX put all the data together, measuring the average neighborhood home prices by price per square foot.

Founder of NeighborhoodX Constantine Valhouli told Curbed DC, "We wanted to look at the city through the lens of price per square foot, rather than by listing prices. This allows people to compare prices by neighborhood on a much more granular basis."

The prices ranged from around $140 per square foot up to nearly $2,000 per square foot. The most affordable area measured was Anacostia, while the highest price was found in Georgetown. The biggest range in prices was also found in Georgetown, with the average price per square foot ranging from $428 to $1,954.

In general, the average price per square foot for the 20 researched neighborhoods seemed to hover around $615 to $700.
