Which Washington Neighborhood Made Redfin’s List of the Nation’s Hottest?

These are “the Susan Luccis of neighborhoods,” according to the website’s CEO.

The online real estate brokerage Redfin on Wednesday released its list for the neighborhoods nationwide that boasted the greatest leap in popularity during the past four months, which was determined by tallying pageviews in the millions, homes marked as “favorites,” and agent insights on growth, as compared with the same time frame last year. Fourth on the list? Our very own Upper Chevy Chase, whose properties managed to snag a 430 percent increase in pageviews. Redfin notes the area’s abundance of single-family homes, highly rated schools, proximity to downtown, and (slightly) lower prices as contributing factors to the increase. But that doesn’t mean all that good stuff comes cheap: Upper Chevy Chase ranked as the second most expensive area on the list, with a median sale price of $873,000 in 2013, coming in after San Francisco’s Bernal Heights North Slope.

The site also compiled rankings by city. On the DC list: Northeast DC’s Michigan Park (which grabbed 187 percent more pageviews), Fairfax County’s Pine Spring (535 percent), and Arlington’s Lyon Park (159 percent) and Waverly Hills (439 percent).
