I’ve lived in DC for about 2 years now and want to buy. My realtor wants to show me some homes in Deanwood. I’ve never thought about east of the river but he says it’s “up and coming”. I wasn’t sure, but the houses are listing for $250k. Not just listing, but selling! What’s up with that? Is there something going on over there???? Should I give it a shot?
PS. Let’s not make this a race issue, I just want to know if the area is a good look and will it get better soon enough for me to make a life investment.
