Burleith homes are desirable for three primary reasons: proximity to Georgetown, relatively large property lots, and a “village in the city” feeling. The steady increase in sales prices that began a few years ago continues to push home values higher while inventory remains low.

Developers are active in the neighborhood, purchasing and expanding, with houses with third-floor pop-ups selling in the $1.8M to $2.9M range. However, there are still limited opportunities to buy into Burleith in the $800K–$900K range, with that range shifting steadily towards the $900s since early 2018. Properties in the $800s are usually picked up very quickly by developers. Astute buyers can purchase properties in the $900s with plans to renovate and expand in the future. In the current market, homes selling in the $900s range from requiring some updates to needing a complete cosmetic overhaul depending on the size of the property. Significant growth has occurred in Burleith’s luxury market with properties expanded in the rear and with high-end renovations selling in the $1.9M to $2.9M range. Burleith’s active luxury market caused the neighborhood’s average sales price to exceed $1.3M in 2018.
