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 $2.3M range. However, there are still limited opportunities to buy into Burleith in the $800K range. These properties are usually picked up very quickly by developers. Since the summer of 2017, Burleith homes that have sold in the $800K range have been for true fixer-uppers. A few of the smaller homes on 35th Place that sold were in the $600K to $800K range. Homes requiring some updates have been selling in the $900s. Significant growth has been seen in Burleith’s luxury market with properties expanded in the rear and with high-end renovations selling in the $1.3M to $1.6M range. Considering the low inventory, buyers should be prepared to move quickly once a home comes on the market.
