Real estate site Trulia has released a new fun tool to look at zip code by zip code break downs of DC Real Estate including some spiffy sorting options that show that Capitol Hill has the highest “lowest” price, while Georgetown has the highest “median” price. Georgetown also carries the largest disparity, with an 8.7x factor between high and low end. 20001 (containing Shaw) has the shallowest magnification factor at 2.8.
Now, there are problems with looking at real estate trends based just on zip codes instead of actual neighborhood boundaries, but that’s a harder database query, that’s for sure. As someone who lives in 20018, but whose neighborhood is mostly comprised of 20017, I suspect that there’s some better breakouts of this stuff available somehow.
