Historic Anacostia Featured in HGTV's My First Sale Episode, Sunday, January 9 at 1pm.

WASHINGTON, D.C. - January 5, 2010 --- The Third Season of HGTV's My First Sale will premier Sunday, January 9, 2010 at 1pm and will focus on the Historic Anacostia neighborhood of Washington, DC. The My First Sale series follows a first-time home seller and their real estate agent as they navigate the ups and downs of the real estate market. Sunday's episode will chronicle the journey of Anacostia homeowner and blogger David Garber as he attempts to sell a renovated single-family home with the assistance of his realtor, Darrin Davis of Anacostia River Realty.

Sunday's episode features the Historic Anacostia neighborhood of Ward 8, a community on the tipping point of economic and residential revitalization. In recent years, Historic Anacostia has become the option for savvy homeowners looking for affordability without sacrificing Washington DC conveniences.

Says Darrin Davis, "As a Realtor, this coverage is absolutely great for the Anacostia community! We are introducing the world to this great community and hopefully dispelling some misperceptions. I am ecstatic that Anacostia River Realty was the company that brought HGTV here."

Already HGTV's coverage of Historic Anacostia is paying off. Garber is in the process of purchasing two dilapidated homes in Historic Anacostia with hopes to have them on the market in late spring. Darrin Davis has been inundated with requests from potential homebuyers looking to experience what he calls "fine east of the Anacostia living." In February, to coincide with their second year anniversary, Anacostia River Realty will be holding a special viewing party of the My First Sale episode.

The excitement surrounding Sunday's episode is of particular interest to residents of Historic Anacostia. "The fact that HGTV is in our neighborhood shows proof that the best days are ahead for our community...Historic Anacostia residents will be glued to the TV on Sunday night! Two Thumbs Up for Anacostia!" says Charles Wilson, President of the Historic Anacostia Block Association.
