Columbia Heights real estate is home to an economically and ethnically diverse community in Northwest Washington, D.C.It is bordered by Spring Road to the north, Florida Avenue to the south, Georgia Avenue to the east, and 16th Street to the west. Columbia Heights real estate is also neighbored by such communities as Shaw, Adams Morgan, and Petworth. Columbia Heights real estate owners and residents are served by the Columbia Heights Station, which is located on Metro’s green and yellow lines.

Despite suffering a period of decline sparked by the 1968 riots, the neighborhood has recently begun to experience a promising revival. As a result, Columbia Heights real estate is booming. In 2008, a 546,000-square-foot retail complex was built across from the metro station, bringing not just shopping and dining but also jobs to Columbia Heights real estate owners. In addition, several condo complexes have been erected along the neighborhood’s 14th Street corridor, in response to the increased demand for housing. Not surprisingly, the inspiring revitalization of Columbia Heights real estate has garnered considerable attention from homebuyers priced out of Washington DC’s trendier neighborhoods.
