A little research (which includes working with a real estate agent that knows Washington, D.C. and the surrounding areas) can go a long way in home buying. Knowing the neighborhood and local community means being aware of similar property values, market trends, crime statistics, and the local schools. If you want to do your own research on any area, in addition to asking us, here are some resources for you to consider.
In any neighborhood, consider the school district and the individual school located near your DC Metro home. Watch for general trends rather than yearly scores. The money a school district or individual school spends per child, teacher turn-over rate, and parent satisfaction rate will give you the information you need, along with traditional API scores. There are numerous factors involved in searching for the perfect home in Washington, D.C. At gopavilion.com we are here to assist you. Let's get started!
