I showed a property today in Columbia heights. To my suprise this property was very close to Howard U and behind Washington Hospital Center.
I write that all to say what is defined as Columbia Heights today as expanded significantly. Some of the higher priced homes selling in this subdivision have been remodeled completely and turned key ready leading to higher sales price point.
if you would to discuss this more feel free to contact me.
Looking at raw listing data that is found on this website and others doesn't give you as clear or accurate a picture of the inventory as seeing properties in person especially if you can see them with an experienced agent who is familiar with the market and past sales--which you won't be able to see in person.
Want to speak with an agent with almost 20 years experience in this area and who also lives in the neighborhood? Call me: (202) 903-6533.

Experience the difference.
Most people are drawn to Columbia Heights for the convenience of metro, shopping, and the 11th street strip - some great home-grown restaurants and bars with lots of outdoor seating. Of course, the convenience to employment centers downtown are helpful as well.

The square footage you see is typically the 'taxable area.' This does not include basements, so a finished basement could make a big difference.
Other things that are not factored into price per square foot are things like central air, off street parking (or a garage space), and the land. Chances are the land does not make a big difference, but if the house is a corner unit or detached, it will add value.
If you want to send me some specific examples, I can give you a little more information.
