Mapping The 10 Least Expensive Properties In/Near Capitol Hill

View as Map

Capitol Hill has gone from being a place people were scared to walk around at night to one of the most popular places to buy a home in DC. Ten plus years ago the developers started to swoop in and rehab the old rowhouses and shortly after that the buying population started to pay attention to what was available. The nearby Eastern Market was already a draw. But then came the coffee shops, the yoga studios, and the part of 8th Street called Barracks Row started to get destination restaurants. Suddenly everyone wanted to live there and, like clockwork, the prices started to go up. But there are still a few fixer-uppers to make it onto a list of Least Expensives. After the jump we've mapped the ten cheapest ones that are on the market right now (only one of them is a holdover list we compiled last year).

Now we're in one bedroom territory with this 1 bed, 1 bath. But it is four feet smaller than the studio the top of our list (453 square feet). Though, it has that landing thing reached via ladder. HOA fees are $455/month.

$320,000

This one bedroom has had about 20K dropped of its price and is 574 square feet. Plus $250/month in HOA fees. Plus the building has a half a turret. Can't go wrong with that.

$355,000

This 1 bed, 1 bath is 574 square feet and is in the Jenkins Row building. It is FHA approved and comes with granite countertops in the kitchen. Fees are $363/month.

$424,990

Here's the first two bedroom on the list and it is large at 1,029 square feet. Though, it does have high HOA fees $525/month.

$429,000

This townhouse was on our map of last year's least expensives. It is zoned for C2, but can be converted into residential. Or someone can live in one half and use the other for office space. Small problem: There's no kitchen and no upstairs bath.

$444,900

It's lofty! An almost-wall defines the master bedroom and the second bedroom is cozy. But it comes with a parking space. HOA fees $383 per month. Huge open plan kitchen.

$549,900

Copy Link

This two bed, one bath is 1,040 square feet and has been on the market a while with a price chop. But "it's a great investment". HOA fees are $365/month and comes with garage parking.

$550,000

This estate sale has a strong chance of being gone by the weekend. It will be open on march 7th and 8th from 11:00AM TO 2:00PM. The 2 bed, 1.5 bath is 1,014 square feet.

$575,000

This two bed, two bath could use some work but since it is laid out as two separate apartments it really could be an 'investor's dream'.
