More homes are the market than before, so the time is now to familiarize yourself with the median housing costs of Washington proper. National real estate brokerage Redfin was kind enough to compile data for Curbed DC of the median sold price of Washington's neighborhoods for Q3 of 2014. At $1.15 million, Georgetown had the highest median sale price, while the lowest was Anacostia at $225,000. Three neighborhoods to watch out for because they had prices that rose over 20 percent from last year: Mount Pleasant with a 33 percent rise, NoMa with a 25 percent rise, and Cleveland Park/Woodley Park/Embassy Row with a 22 percent rise. Below, a map of 16 properties that are asking the Q3 medians for each neighborhood, which will give you a good idea of what each neighborhood's median gets you in today's market. Some neighborhoods were left out of our map because of a lack of listings that were near the Q3 medians. If you don't see a certain neighborhood listed in the data, that means there wasn't enough activity to assess a reliable median number.Read More
