There are some signs near the Real World DC house that show up in multiple episodes, so I thought I would dedicate this entry to signs at or near the house.
The Dupont Circle DC Historic District sign above shows up repeatedly in the series. Actually there are two such signs where the house is located at the intersections of S Street NW with 20th Street NW. The one shown above is on the southeast corner of the intersection, just across 20th Street NW from the house. The other circular sign is located on the northwest corner of the intersection, just across S Street NW from the house.

There are two PRIVATE signs on metal gates leading into the house. The gates are located right at the edge of the sidewalk. In the image, the one at the top is located at the entrance that faces 20th Street NW. The essentially identical sign at the bottom is located at the entrance that faces S Street NW. The S Street entrance is the one with the steps that appears frequently in the show.
Interestingly enough and as far as I know never mentioned in the show is a sign on the sidewalk right in front of the house. It is on the top of the storm drain on S Street. It identifies the area as part of the DC Soil & Water Conservation District and points out that whatever goes into that storm drain will end up in the Potomac River.
