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!
Tomorrow (Sat. May 12, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.), the neighborhood associationâ€™s Great Brookland Yard Sale takes place throughout the neighborhood. (See http://www.brooklandcivic.org for a map of the yard sale locations.) Itâ€™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. Itâ€™s a classic, small (15-unit) DC apartment building, but everything important is new. For more info on the apartment, see our website, http://www.brooks-park205.com, check out the listing on Trulia, or Google 2824 12th St. NE #205. Dodie.Butler@longandfoster.com 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 DCâ€™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.
