And this economy is only expected to get better. With a new Republican president and a Republican majority congress, economic growth is expected to accelerate for the region as government spending grows and more wealthy elites flock to the city.

Additionally, record-breaking residential growth in the area foretells a need for more private sector jobs in the city as federal employment is reduced over at least the next four years. For those looking for a location to start a franchise, D.C.'s real estate market is something to be paying attention to.Amazing Place to LiveIf you know anything about Washington, D.C., you know that the area is anything but boring.
