Home to a staggering number of world-class museums and memorials, bustling festivals, and destination restaurants, DC is a place unlike any other in the nation. Washington, DC is sited on the Potomac River, bordering Maryland and Virginia, and is defined by its neoclassical architecture. While the city is currently in the midst of a redevelopment boom, its neighborhoods have retained a true local flavor and charm. DC’s population of 693,972 has the highest GDP per capita ($160,472) in the nation. The median home value in the city is $579,000 with a median list price per square foot of $538 as of November 2017. With its cultural diversity and access to an abundance of amenities and attractions, DC is one of the most attractive cities in the nation to live in and its real estate market reflects that—with homes selling faster and at record-setting prices.
