Price Point: $500,000 to $530,000

Comparing condos in Capitol Hill and Shirlington around the $500,000 mark

Capitol Hill: $529,000

Condo:  625 3rd St. NE, #5

A flood of sunlight from the large windows highlights the contemporary design of this 1,320-square-foot, two-level condo. Two bedrooms, 2½ baths and an open home office feel spacious, and the closets are plenty big, too. Even little nooks and crannies — such as the space under the stairs —have been turned into storage. A large kitchen has stainless steel appliances but is short on cupboard space. Freestanding shelves for storing pots, pans and more come with the home. The 1910 building is just 2½ blocks from the Union Station Metro, a short walk from the up-and-coming Atlas District. (Listed by Coldwell Banker)

Shirlington: $512,000

Condo: 2400-A S. Walter Reed Drive, Arlington

This recently remodeled end-unit townhome abuts Arlington County parkland, with stunning views and easy access to the Four Mile Run path. The kitchen was renovated in 2011 with new cabinets, granite countertops, a tile back splash and stainless steel appliances. The property has three bedrooms (the third is small), two full baths and two half-baths. A short walk to the shops and restaurants in Shirlington, this location is an easy commute to the Pentagon and D.C. (At the time of publication, this property had a contract pending.)
