Want to live in D.C.’s hottest neighborhood? I’ve got a deal for you

There’s a reason I haven’t blogged in the last month and it’s the building in this photo. That’s the Union Row condo building on 14th Street in Washington, D.C. and it’s where my wife and I live, at least for a little while longer.

Our unit went on the market this morning. Want a great condo in D.C.’s hottest neighborhood? Then I’ve got a deal for you.

Union Row is near the epicenter of the U Street corridor, an area that has exploded in the last couple of years with new apartment buildings and restaurants. The New York Times wrote about the boom two years ago, and that was before things got really crazy.

We love our condo but we’re ready for a little more room and some outdoor space. And while we’d like to stay in the U Street corridor, real estate prices there are pretty much out of reach, at least for a place with as much room as we’d like.

So we decided about a month ago to put the condo up for sale and start looking. Thus the lack of blogging. And while I haven’t been taking a lot of photos for fun, I have spent a lot of time shooting photos of our condo.

I took all of the photos of our unit used in our listing and the two of the exterior shots of our building. I’m not sure how much money I saved by taking the photos myself but that wasn’t the reason I spent a couple days doing it. Our condo is the most important investment we own, so why would I leave the photos to a stranger?
