Brentwood Real Estate For Sale, Washington DC
Located in northeast Washington, DC, Brentwood was named after a mansion built in 1817 by Robert Brent, the first Mayor of Washington City. The house and a large portion of land were the mayor's wedding gift to his daughter, and went through numerous ownership changes as years went by. Portions of the large estate were sold or leased, and the home was destroyed by fire 100 years after its construction. The modern neighborhood of Brentwood is somewhat smaller than the original estate, and is typified by row houses and other multi-unit structures built after the turn of the century. According to Zillow, the value index for Brentwood homes is $212,400, representing a healthy 9.4 percent increase from the previous year.

Brentwood homes are among the most affordable in Washington, DC, with an meridian list price of $165,000. While part of this is due to the high percentage of condos versus single family homes, the recent economic downturn also played a part. Brentwood hadn't yet begun the gentrification process that was common to other parts of DC when the sub-prime crisis hit. As a result, there have been a lot of foreclosures in the area, as well as short sales. This has resulted in some solid investment opportunities for multi-unit buildings. With their proximity to the heart of DC, Brentwood homes are beginning to enjoy popularity with younger business professionals.
There are a number of secondary schools in the Brentwood area, including Gallaudet University, established in 1857 as the first school in the nation for the hearing impaired. Much of the land for the university came from the Brentwood estate, and one of the resident halls is built on the site of the original mansion. The Brentwood Park is one of the local attractions, offering softball and tennis. As a new seller's market begins to assert itself in the District of Columbia, Brentwood homes continue to offer opportunities for buyers and investors.
