Capitol Hill is also a neighborhood in Washington, a big village, split halfway across, half in the NE and half in the SE quadrant of Washington, DC. Politicians work here, but people live here also.
On the south side of this neighborhood is essentially Barracks Row, and the rebirth of the Navy Yard and now the Nationals Park neighborhood. The Navy Yard has very good Metro access, and is also home to a newer iconic landmark, (Washington baseball) Nationals Park.
Locals are happy they will be seeing the 2018 All Star game, which should bring in yet another round of hotel & commercial construction within the next several months, beyond all the cranes currently in operation.

While the ratio of sold price to original list price is 100%, the average for the prior 5 years was 99.5%, again, a stable market during the winter moths and leading into a spring with the expectation of an upward trend with asking prices being met with a corresponding upward trend in sold prices.
