Shirlington: $525,000

Condo: 2720 Arlington Mill Drive S, No. 1107, Arlington

Bright, spacious and open with 14-foot-tall ceilings, this 1,080-square-foot two-bedroom offers a lot for your money. The large kitchen opens onto the dining area and family room, and light fills the space from the floor-to-ceiling windows in the sunroom just beyond. The 11th-floor unit overlooks a parking lot and some commercial buildings, although it’s so high up that you notice more sky than concrete. The bedrooms are spacious and so are the closets. There’s no Metro station nearby (only a bus), but a parking spot is included in the price. The building has an outdoor swimming pool and indoor gym.

Logan Circle: $549,000

Condo: 1111 11th St. NW, No. 301

Location is everything in this central D.C. two-bedroom, two-bath unit that clocks in at 1,252 square feet. With multiple Metro stations within walking distance (the closest is Mt Vernon Sq) you might not need the underground parking spot that’s included in the price. Sunlight pours into the open-plan family room, dining room and kitchen. The bedrooms are a little cramped, and so are the closets, but the latter are custom-designed to maximize storage space. The building does not have a doorman but requires a key-fob to get in the front door or the elevators. Extra touches include a roof terrace and a ground-level courtyard with grills.
