10 Washington, D.C. Homes You Can Nab For Under $200K

View as Map

Welcome to a semi-regular feature, Price Points, in which we pick a relatively low asking price and a type of home, then scour Redfin to find the best available options around the city. Today's task: listings asking less than $200,000.

A week ago, Curbed took a look at some of the best of the best listings costing between $200,000 and $300,000. Now, it's time to bring that price point down with homes asking between $100,000 and $200,000. While not an intimidating price range for other parts of the country, it can be a little tough to find great options when Washington, D.C.'s median listing price is $430,000, according to national real estate brokerage Redfin. While a little difficult, it's certainly not back-breaking. To help with those homebuyers who are looking for more affordable options, please enjoy the below map. Looking for another price point?
