View as Map

Below, Curbed maps the 10 most expensive listings currently on the market in the Southeast neighborhood Anacostia, ranging in price from $350,000 to $530,000. A majority of the mapped listings were sold within the last few years and renovated. It should also be noted that some of the homes on this map may be located closer to Randle Heights than Anacostia, but they should still be indicative of what pricey options you should expect in the area.

Here's some background information on the housing market in the neighborhood that should be of interest before checking out the map. In January 2015, The Washington Post reported that the neighborhood experienced one of the biggest gains in median home price in the D.C. area in the year 2014. Last year, the median sales price rose 21 percent, from $200,000 in 2013 to $242,900 in 2014. According to national real estate brokerage Redfin, the current median sale price for homes in the neighborhood is $285,000, while the median listing price is $389,000. Oddly enough, the median household income has dropped by $3,000 from $35,545 in 1990 (in 2012 dollars) to $32,262 in 2014, while the number of owner-occupied housing units also dropped from 32.8 percent in 1990 to 29.9 percent in 2014, reported Greater Greater Washington.
