Yes, it is definitely possible to find a nice condo in your price range. I recently sold 2 completely renovated, beautiful 1 bedroom condos in brightwood for lower than that! Give me a call if you'd like help in finding a really nice condo for under $250,000.

Hi Homesick:
Sounds like you are aching to come back to the DC area or perhaps leave the suburbs of Washington to get back to the air of city life. As some of the reviews have stated NW is a broad area but more importantly what are you searching for in a condo? Number of bedrooms/bathrooms, renovated, garage parking and any building amenities that are must have's. There is a lot available in DC and if you have been away for a while you might not even recognize old stumping grounds. If you want a more concise review of a particular area inbox me--I am more than happy to help!

All the Best!

In case your question has to do with wanting to live near Metro’s Red Line stations, or you are looking for a friendly, walkable neighborhood, you might also consider Brookland in Northeast DC., where I have a like-new, $180,000, one-bedroom condo Open House at 2824 12th Street NE #205, tomorrow.

Tomorrow (Sat. May 12, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.), the neighborhood association’s Great Brookland Yard Sale takes place throughout the neighborhood. (See for a map of the yard sale locations.) It’s a great way to meet people who live in Brookland.

Our Open House is 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., in the Brooks Park Condominium, 2824 12th Street NE, #205. The building was completely renovated in 2008, wiring, plumbing, new kitchens and baths, etc. It’s a classic, small (15-unit) DC apartment building, but everything important is new. For more info on the apartment, see our website,, check out the listing on Trulia, or Google 2824 12th St. NE #205. or 202-643-6343 -- this Google Voice number rings all my phones.

Even better news: you may be eligible for significant savings by buying in DC in this price range. A property costing under $356 ,000, purchased by a single individual earning under $59,040, or a couple earning under $67,440 (and higher income limits for larger families), can qualify for DC’s Lower Income Home Ownership Tax Exemption-Abatement Program, saving buyer(s) money at settlement and exempting them from property taxes for five years. The application is filed at settlement and you just have to meet the income and property price criteria. The program has to do with encouraging people to buy their first homes in DC. Buy and apply before Oct. 1 to get the abatement for the first year of ownership.

See the guidelines and application at:…

A Studio is a possibility.

In short; YES; but NW DC is a huge part of the city. The closer you are to downtown or to Metro; the less likely you will find anything under this price. Feel free to check out all the DC Listings for sale:
