The in-suite master bathroom is quite spacious and has a glass enclosed over-sized walk-in shower. In addition to a washer/dryer, custom window shades, and a built-in security system, the owner has installed a central air purifier and humidifier. This unit comes with a tandem garage parking space that fits two cars. The open house is Sunday, September 20th from 1 to 4pm. For the full listing, click here.

The master bedroom looks out on a gated patio area and, with an 11-foot wide closet, offers a ton of storage space. The unit has rather high condo fees, but they include access to many of the amenities located in the main building (fitness center, front desk services, and parking garage). The open house is Sunday, September 20th from 12 to 2pm. For the full listing, click here.

This two-bedroom bungalow in North Arlington would probably not be the attractive property that it is without the addition of the great room that you see in the photo above. The room has cathedral ceilings and windows virtually everywhere which make it an ideal space to relax regardless of the season. In addition to the new room, the home has a living room and dining room on the main level with hardwood floors throughout. In the rear of the home is a a patio and a one-car garage. The open house is Sunday, September 20th from 1 to 4pm. For the full listing, click here.

    What's up with the ridiculous condo fees? The Columbia Heights condo fee is over $300 and there's no pool or fitness center. And the DC condo at over $600 is insane. A fitness center and parking garage is not enough to justify this. With that fee, a pool and free utilities should also be included.

    These are typical monthly condo fees in the District. For parking you pay a premium, but in my two-month search for a new home, these are fairly on point.

    That bungalow in Clarendon looks great.
