DC is America's Smartest City

CNNMoney reports that the DC metro area ranks first in the nation for the percentage of residents with a college degree.  A whopping 47.3% of our residents, aged 25 or older hold college degrees.  Nationally, the average percentage of residents with a college degree is 25%. 

The DC area has topped the national charts several times this past year including leading the nation for inbound migration, #2 city for young people and #2 city for working moms.

Our smart residents looking to make a real estate investment can take advantage of the ongoing DC first time buyer tax credit as well the opportunities available for 3.5% down payments in our FHA approved condo developments.

Really smart DC residents surf over to DC Condo Boutique to look for a new place in the district.

I think that CNN/Money is smarter than Portfolio.com!
