DC Condo Boutique

 washer dryer

If you’re in the market for a new DC condo you’ve probably already come up with your own list of what you want in your new place. If an in-unit laundry room is on your list, you’re in good company.

According to the Zumper real estate listing website, that’s the most sought-after amenity for DC condo dwellers. The website looked at the search terms of users nationwide, then broke it down city by city.

While more and more new buildings are starting to offer trendier amenities such as yoga studios and dog-washing stations, the analysis by Zumper suggests DC tenants have much more basic needs. Along with in-unit laundry, Washington DC tenants also seem particularly interested in a DC condo with a dishwasher and air-conditioning.

 cherrydale - arlington va

A fantastic destination for families, the Cherrydale neighborhood is known for its quiet streets, area parks and its mix of housing options. This quaint community may exist in North Arlington and close to urban attractions, but it still retains more of a small-town feel.

That may, perhaps, be traced to its roots. The neighborhood actually gains its name from a large cherry orchard once found in the area.

While some settled in the neighborhood after the Civil War, it was the introduction of a railway line around the turn-of-the-century which really kicked off neighborhood development. It didn’t take long for new homes to go up, bringing in a variety of different home styles for new residents to choose from.

To this day, a majority of homes in

mount pleasant - washington dc

One of DC’s most popular neighborhoods, housing continues to be in-demand in Mount Pleasant. While part of its appeal is no doubt its location, the neighborhood’s diversity is also a big draw for many future buyers.

For generations that community has continued to change and adapt to the needs of its residents. The neighborhood credits much of that diversity to its past.

Originally marketed to middle class and upper middle-class residents, Mount Pleasant attracted some big names to the area. In the coming years, though, racial segregation left its mark on the community and Mount Pleasant went through a time of transition.

Fast-forward a few years, and a large population of Spanish-speaking residents immigrated to Mount Pleasant, changing the
