Lower cost is a relative term. The first step is to determine your budget. You may be surprised that you can afford to live somewhere that seems cost prohibitive. Also the neighborhoods vary tremendously in this area. We need to determine what you are looking for within a community.

The two closest Metro Rail stations would be Anacostia and/or Congress Heights. Though it would be easiest to get to Anacostia Station via one bus (A8). From Anacostia Station, you would then need to catch the Green Line train in the direction of Greenbelt to Gallery Place/Chinatown Station and transfer to the Red line (which would take you to Brookland/CUA station).

Total commute time--including bus and rail transit--is anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour, depending on the time of day. Hope this helps!

Oh! And most importantly, do not make any major purchases until AFTER you buy a house. If you go out and buy car, it will screw up your credit for the loan and can keep you from following through on the purchase. ... more

Hi Erin, have you found your new home? It is best to check with the police to find out about safety. I am not far from that area. I can help you.

Hey Tyrone,

I think you mean Danbury Street SE. There's not a Danburg St SW.

There is a townhome development there, built in 2006, that appears to have been mostly sold during the peak of the real estate bubble at inflated prices, and almost all of those that are currently for sale are either short sales or foreclosures. As to whether they are great homes, we'd have to go have a look at them and put one through a home inspection, if you liked one enough to put an offer on it.

HOA stands for Home Owners Association and the HOA fees cover things like lawn and landscape maintenance, street maintenance within the development, snow removal, trash pickup and other things. The HOA is made up of home owners living in that development and there is a board of directors elected from the home owners. The board determines what the fees are and is in charge of making sure things get done the way they are supposed to.

If you are shopping for a Buyer's Agent, I'd love the opportunity to interview with you sometime. Feel free to email me.
