Hmm, another pop up condo but I’m glad to see that the bathroom conveys… What do you think of the condo itself? Ah it seems to be a short sale, so what do you think this 3 bed/2.5 bath will go for? The asking price is $450,000.

  • Doesn’t a room need a closet to be considered a bedroom?

  • Honestly I don’t know. Location and size are good and can account for some of the price but still. The layout seems painful and the outside is butt ugly. No lipstick is going to help that pig, but I am not sure how much either plays into pricing of houses.

  • Spa tubs are the worst! All they do is collect the “black gunk” that is in DC water, so you can never use them. I think it’s lead build-up…

  • Normally, I wouldn’t say anything nice about a partially below-grade place like this (8′ ceilings, on both levels?? Hello, claustrophobia), but I think they throw in enough with this place to make it ALMOST worth the price. Location is fantastic, the off-street parking is nice, and it is a larger renovated 3/2. I wouldn’t buy it as a home, but as an investment property to rent, it’s a maybe. You could rent this out for $3000/mo, and with the tax deductions and equity your tenants are building for you, it would be close to a worthwhile investment with rates where they are now.

  • 450k and the majority is underground? no thanks.

  • Developers please stop making ugly pop ups! how many decades will we have to look at this?

  • uh, sounds like a great deal to me. but doesn’t the short sale make it not worth it? i heard those are a bitch.

  •’s under contract.

  • What a P.O.S.

  • PoP, please give us something decent to look at. First the popup crap from yesterday and now this.

  • Sounds like a good deal to me. I’m not saying it is the most beautiful place in the world or ideal in all aspects, but I think the price is right for what it is.

  • I heard the neighbors are awesome.
