More and more people looking to move to into the capital city

For decades thousands of men and women have commuted into Washington D.C. from outlying Virginia and Maryland counties. It was typical, and even expected, for politicians, lobbyists, even Smithsonian employees to live in a northern Virginia city like Arlington. However, the latest census shows an increasing number of people hoping to move into the capital city. If you are at some of the homes for sale in Washington, DC, consider how these people have the right idea to live in the center of it all.

According to FOX DC, less people are leaving Washington DC to live in the surrounding suburbs. These are also called "exurbs" when outside of a metropolitan area, and are often highly comprised of commuters. The source explains this might be due to factors such as high gasoline prices, low home interest rates and reasonably priced city homes.

As you look for your new home, consider some of the great properties in the heart of Washington DC. Imagine how nice it would be to walk alongside cherry blossoms on your way to work, instead of sitting in bumper-to-bumper traffic. On the weekends, you could enjoy shopping in Georgetown or visit the Air and Space Museum without any hassles. There's a lot to be done - and saved - when living in the nation's capital.
