Celebrate the glorious renaissance of Logan Circle by buying three refurbished dwellings and then throwing a housewarming party. Just be advised that the festivities could hit a few snags. Some guests might complain about the deafening construction taking place all over the neighborhood, including on your very block. Others might complain about the shoulder-wide entryways and the crouch-inducing stairwells. And those hoping to bring the party out back might soil their flip-flops in the mud collecting outside the back door. However, there’s more dry land to be had: For a mere $50,000, you can buy a parking space and extend the party’s confines an extra 15 feet or so. Or, what the heck, just rent out the convention center down the street.—Brian Beutler
