I think another important factor to consider is the length of time of your investment. It’s hard to say whether the rate of appreciation will be greater at either location, but I would estimate that it would be Columbia Heights/Petworth. If this is a long term investment (20-30 years) the rate of appreciation may not be as important as the total appreciation potential, which may be greater with a SF in Capitol Hill. If it will be a primary residence, location preferences/commute/etc make it hard to answer because being happy in a home can be more important than the finances. I would also consider H St NE although that wouldn’t help much for the commute. I think you would likely see a substantial return on your investment with either decision. (I am a realtor)
