Some of our clients are just beginning to explore their options when they first reach out to us about buying a home and some clients, like Mas Tadesse, know exactly what they want. Mas had her eye on a condominium at the intersection of 3rd Street and Rhode Island Ave NW, right in the heart of Bloomingdale. Like many first time homebuyers, Mas had been renting in the neighborhood she hoped to one day be able to live in as a homeowner. With the help of the home purchase assistance program HPAP Mas realized her dream and created an investment that will surely pay off.
Bloomingdale is a historic neighborhood noted for its close-knit community-oriented character, historic row house architecture and its proximity to downtown and Metrorail. All these factors combine to make this area one of DC’s hottest “up and coming” communities as well as prime location for new retail and restaurant opportunities.
Mas will continue to enjoy Bloomingdale’s pleasures like Big Bear Cafe, a popular neighborhood gathering place and the Bloomingdale Farmer’s Market each Sunday. There’s also the Rustik Tavern, a brick oven pizzeria and tavern and Boundary Stone where you can enjoy your favorite pint with neighbors. And don’t forget about Crispus Attucks Park, whose restoration has been a labor of love by Bloomingdale residents since 1977.
