You know what they say — location, location, location. While that phrase is of course hackneyed, it’s 1,000 percent true for Georgetown. If you’re a longtime renter looking to buy your first home, our community is truly an ideal place to take the plunge. Sure, a lot of properties can be expensive. However, the right purchase can be a fruitful and fulfilling investment. Where else can you own a part of history?
Property in Georgetown is on track to continue becoming even more of a hot commodity than it already is. Washington Fine Properties says buyers love Georgetown’s historical ties and modern city life. And Georgetown is the best of both worlds.
Also, the neighborhood has seen several high-end retailers like furniture brand Blu Dot, department store Showfields and the longtime shops and boutiques we used in our July cover story call Georgetown home
For young first-time buyers, there’s so much to do for families. Rose Park, Volta Park, the Georgetown waterfront and all of the seasonal activities from the Georgetown Business Improvement District, Georgetown Main Street and the Citizens Association of Georgetown are ideal places and things-to-do to keep little ones busy.
Keep in mind, the housing market here is competitive. If you find your dream home, it’s best to work with a real estate agent to get things moving.
