View as Map

It's been over a year since Curbed's last look at inexpensive properties near the still-booming H Street Northeast and if anything, 2014 looks more optimistic for those trying to move to this corridor on a budget. That's not to say the market around here has stalled. In fact, anyone looking at one of the homes and apartments mapped below might want to act quickly. Most of the twenty-one properties in this nabe have been on the market for under a month and none have been for sale for more than half a year. But assuming that a $6.5 million former school isn't in the cards, here are are the ten least expensive properties on the market within spitting distance of the new streetcar.

Copy Link
1367 Florida Avenue Northeast
Washington, DC 20001

Asking price: $369,000
Size: 2-bed, 2-bath condo, 839 square feet
Dollars Per Square Foot: $440
The skinny: This 2BR condo in The Paragon does pretty well for natural light. The caveat is that the words "BUILDERS CONTRACT MUST BE USED" appear in all caps on the listing.

2. 2BR Condo

Copy Link
730 11th Street Northeast
Washington, DC 20002

Asking price: $380,000
Size: 2-bed, 2-bath condo, 737 square feet
Dollars Per Square Foot: $516
The skinny: This one just hit the market within the past day! The caveat here is that there are no additional listing photos and the current resident will not show you the place without an agent present. There's something to be said for privacy.

3. 2BR Condo in the Almansya

Copy Link
1409 G Street Northeast
Washington, DC 20002

Asking price: $499,900
Size: 2-bed, 2.5-bath condo, 1,100 square feet
Dollars Per Square Foot: $454
The skinny: This is one of the less expensive options in the city that spans two levels. Also, there's a small balcony and one of the more unique kitchen countertops around.

4. 2BR Condo

Copy Link
629 4th Street Northeast
Washington, DC 20002

Asking price: $499,900
Size: 2-bed, 1.5-bath condo, 1,080 square feet
Dollars Per Square Foot: $463
The skinny: This condo in a converted row house is on the western end of H Street NE so it's closer to Union Station (and Sidamo). Also of note, the current owner has put cute deck furniture under the outdoor stairwell.

5. 3BR Colonial Row House

Copy Link
1109 Abbey Place Northeast
Washington, DC 20002

Asking price: $557,500
Size: 3-bed, 1-bath row house, 1,088 square feet
Dollars Per Square Foot: $512
The skinny: In this bump over the $500K mark, it's possible to own the entire house! Sure, it has the privacy problems of any row house but there's enough space that the current resident is using an entire room just for storage. Only one bathroom in the whole house, though?

6. 3BR Contemporary Row House

Copy Link
1031 6th Street Northeast
Washington, DC 20002

Asking price: $649,000
Size: 3-bed, 2.5-bath row house, 1,410 square feet
Dollars Per Square Foot: $460
The skinny: The skinny is right. This tall and narrow home spreads its square footage across three floors. However, it has a private patio and it's closer to the Union Market end of the corridor.

7. 4BR Colonial Row House

Copy Link
614 Morton Place Northeast
Washington, DC 20002

Asking price: $689,750
Size: 4-bed, 2.5-bath row house, 900 square feet
Dollars Per Square Foot: $766
The skinny: This three story row house advertises parking and an au pair suite, so it's clear that the square footage is not going into common areas. The living room and kitchen are gorgeous but practically on top of each other and the front and back door. But there's also protected off-street parking.

8. 3BR Colonial Row House

Copy Link

Washington, DC 20002

Asking price: $699,000
Size: 3-bed, 2.5-bath row house, 1,440 square feet

Washington, DC 20002

Asking price: $699,900
Size: 3-bed, 3.5-bath row house, 1,370 square feet
Dollars Per Square Foot: $511
The skinny: For a clue that this is a fancier offering, just look at that light fixture in the kitchen. However, this also has a roofdeck and brings a luxurious touch to everything.

331 K Street Northeast
Washington, DC 20002

Asking price: $700,000
Size: 3-bed, 1.5-bath row house, 1,264 square feet
