It has been eight years since the bottom fell out of the national housing market, and while DC wasn’t affected as adversely as other parts of the country, UrbanTurf is taking a look at select neighborhoods around the city to see how housing prices have fared during that stretch.

We have analyzed Capitol Hill and the zip code that includes neighborhoods like Shaw, Bloomingdale, LeDroit Park and Mount Vernon Square. This week, we head to the land of high-priced, single-family homes in Chevy Chase DC.
