Washington DC Rehab Homes For Sale

In the aftermath of the Dr. Martin Luther King’s assassination in 1968, Washington DC experienced five days of extensive rioting. Over 1,200 buildings were burned and the after effects of closed businesses and lost jobs contributed to decades of blight and economic depression, especially in areas like Columbia Heights and the U Street Corridor. While it wouldn’t be accurate to link all Washington DC rehab homes to a long ago period of unrest, there is certainly a connection between years of residential neglect and subsequent opportunities for restoration, rehabilitation, and the growing of DC’s economy.

We have all seen pictures of distressed buildings, whether in Washington DC or other urban centers or rural countrysides. For a real estate investor or potential home buyer, a snapshot of house that has fallen into disrepair can trigger the “what-if” thoughts, the idea that the house represents a chance for a new beginning. The urban renewal process that began in the 1990’s and accelerated throughout the 2000’s, saw DC homes being purchased and rehabbed in large numbers. A rehab project is generally considered a property in a severe state of disrepair, and in fact, distressed properties are often advertised as rehab sales or even Washington DC Shells.

Washington DC Rehab Homes For SaleWe’ve all heard the famous real estate saying, “location, location, location.”. With Washington DC rehab homes, it’s a matter of interpretation. Everyone would love an absolute bargain in Adams Morgan, Shaw or Columbia Heights and while it’s possible, these neighborhoods have already gone through extensive rehabilitation and renovation. The real areas of opportunity often lie to the east. Trinidad in the northeastern quadrant, Benning in Ward 7 in the southeastern corner and Anacostia in Ward 8, on the other side of the Anacostia River are all seen as neighborhoods with a significant upside and where rehab projects are still evidence.

For those interested in purchasing a Washington DC rehab home, a few words of caution. First, there aren’t as many as there once were which means that a lot of distressed properties have been cherry-picked already. It doesn’t mean that the opportunities don’t exist – there any many properties winding their way through various legal processes that become available in due course, and not when it’s simply convenient to the market. Second, be prepared for hard work and a significant investment in time, labor, materials and money. The up side of course is the potential for huge savings and a possible huge profit if and when you decide to sell.
