Ahhhhhhh – I feel much better now. I just changed the radio station away from NPR and the overwhelmingly negative stock market news to instead listen to my favorite 80s tunes on 104.7 FM “The Globe.” Anyone with me on that?
For those of you who need a home and have managed to secure a loan, here are a few sweet deals on offer. I only looked at houses because condo fees complicate the matter of value/sqft. My picks are all low in terms of $$/sqft compared to the surrounding neighborhood but they also have other attributes that made them stand out.
Deal#1: Chevy Chase (DC), where average price is $337/sqft
3205 Beech St NW - $729,000 REDUCED - $189/sqft- 4 beds/3 baths split level house. This house is in a very leafy neighborhood close to Rock Creek Park. It originally listed for $879,000 and has been on the markt for 6 months. Sellers are ready to MOVE IT.
Deal#2: Georgetown, where average price is $647/sqft
3344 Prospect St NW - $1,350,000 REDUCED – $397/sqft – 4 bed/3 bath historic row house on a famous street in the heart of the west village. The house has been renovated and includes an in-law suite. It has only been on the market 15 days, originally at $1,449,000. It looks like the sellers are reading things correctly and don’t want it to sit for months.
Deal#3: Columbia Heights, where average price is $277/sqft
517 Rock Creek Church Rd NW - $595,000 – $189/sqft – 4 bed/2 bath Spanish-style semi-detached house. This is a very pretty, restored home that was built in 1905. It has lots of wood trim, new appliances and a full in-law suite. The sellers say they will look at all offers. It has been on the market for a month.
