When housing prices were clobbered by the recession in 2007, home prices in the nation’s capital were affected, but not as dramatically as in many other cities. They have recovered — and then some — since the end of the recession, but the recovery like the decline has been modest. Nonetheless, D.C. is an expensive place to live. The median list price per square foot in Washington, D.C., is $515, according to Zillow. (FYI, that’s more than double the price per square foot in the next city on the list.)
