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 selling in the $1.5M to $2M range that have included third-floor pop-ups. However, there still are limited opportunities to buy into Burleith in the $700K range. These properties are usually picked up very quickly by the developer types. Throughout 2016, Burleith homes that have sold in the $700K range have been for true fixer-uppers. A few of the smaller homes on 35th Place that previously were in the $500K to $600K range are now reaching into the $700s. Homes requiring some updates have been selling in the $800s. Significant growth has been seen in Burleith’s luxury market with properties expanded in the rear and with high-end renovations selling in the $1M to $1.3M range. Considering the low inventory, buyers should be prepared to move quickly once a home comes on the market.
