15 Starter Homes With Parking In Hot or Up And Coming Nabes

View as Map

Finding that first home is tough, especially now since there are so few houses on the market. But we dug deep into the listings and mapped over a dozen homes that range from $260,000 to $515,000 with at least one off-street parking space. Yes, a few of them have problems, but that's why they're called starter homes. We looked in some of the most desirable neighborhoods in the city plus a few of the places that are rising in popularity and found the real estate adage about location is alive and well. A starter price in one neighborhood is nothing but wishful thinking in another.

4471 MacArthur Boulevard Northwest
Washington, DC 20007

The Palisades is one of the best neighborhoods to name drop so that's why we were shocked to find this $259,500 1 bed, 1 bath with deeded parking space. Condo fees are only $298/mo and it is 536 square feet.

2. $289,000 (754 PARK Rd)

754 Park Road Northwest
Washington, DC 20010

Possibly the lowest HOA fees you'll find at $96/month, this one bed, one bath is 600 square feet and comes with a Jacuzzi bath.

3. $297,000 (614 ELLIOTT ST)

614 Elliott Street Northeast
Washington, DC 20002

Close enough to the H Street Corridor this 1 bed, 1 bath is a large enough unit at 750 square feet. It does come with low HOA fees of $260/mo.

4. $310,000 (1239 VERMONT Ave)

Copy Link
1239 Vermont Avenue Northwest
Washington, DC 20005

This one is small at 472 square feet, so let's call it a junior one bedroom. But it is a corner unit and has HOA fees of $509/month.

5. $339,000 (935 8TH St NE)

Copy Link
935 8th Street Northeast
Washington, DC 20002

6. $425,000 (1421 T St)

Copy Link
1421 T Street Northwest
Washington, DC 20009

There's actually an affordable place in Logan Circle. It is a one bed, one bath totaling 863 square feet with fees of $287/mo. It has only been on the market for two days, so it wil go fast.

Copy Link
1855 Calvert Street Northwest
Washington, DC 20009

Somewhere between Adams Morgan and Woodley Park is a 2 bed, 1.5 bath for under $500K. The fees are a little steep—listed at $459 per month but it also mentions parking is $185 per month, however it doesn't indicate if that is included in the monthly fees. So factor that in to the mortgage calculations.

8. $455,000 (2035 2ND St NW)

Copy Link
2035 2nd Street Northwest
Washington, DC 20001

There aren't many cooler starter homes than ones that used to be a school. The former Gage School has some good choices, including this 2 bed, 2 bath that is 1,123 square feet.

9. $474,999 (415 W St NE)

Copy Link
415 W Street Northeast

Copy Link
1701 Kalorama Road Northwest

An Adams Morgan 2 bed, 1 bath with HOA fees of $432/mo. that not only has a parking space but also a private balcony. It is also close to a Harris Teeter.

1391 Pennsylvania Avenue Southeast
Washington, DC 20003

This is one of the more expensive homes on the list, but it's also a large unit at 1,234 square feet and comes with TWO parking spaces.

Here's a large two bed, 1.5 bath with 1,244 square feet of space. It doesn't show any indoor pictures, but says it is being painted so hopefully that is why.

14. $505,000 (832 JEFFERSON St NW)

Copy Link
832 Jefferson Street Northwest
Washington, DC 20011

Another row house that fits our criteria, especially since it has a separate entrance basement that can be rented out. The 4 bed, 3.5 bath measures 1,594 square feet.

Copy Link
523 Florida Avenue Northwest
