The recent sales history of this property gives a sense of the fluctuations in the Petworth market in the recent past. In 2005, the tax records show a transfer of the property at $325,000., followed by a transfer in 2006 for $470,000. Work was apparently started but not finished, and the property was sold by the bank in 2008 for $220,000.
I was surprised to see that since the beginning of 2012, there were 23 sales of houses in Petworth that settled under $250,000. Apparently, there are still deals out there, although it’s worth noting that most, if not all, were cash sales. (In fact, the lowest Petworth house sale so far this year was for $142,500., for a property that looks like it conveyed with tenants).
Although Petworth is a relatively defined neighborhood, pricing is still very much block-to-block, and largely affected by proximity to Metro. The highest net sale of a house in Petworth so far this year was at $647,500. Median price for the neighborhood for so far this year is $350,000., with a median number of days on market at less than three weeks.
There are currently forty houses actively listed for sale in Petworth, ranging in price from $255,000. to $965,000.
