Upon first glance, I was a bit surprised by the price for a house without a basement in this location, but after researching a bit, see that this is a Nantucket Holdings renovation from 2012. Even outside of this crazy short supply/high demand market place, Nantucket Holdings properties often sell for a premium. Nantucket Holdings sold the property in March of last year for $690,000.

I have no idea why the recent owner sold within such a short period of time, however, it is further testament to the intensity of the conditions of the current real estate market to see a literal appreciation of nearly 10%. It is also worth noting that the O Street Market development is well underway this year, in contrast to last. Even when development is highly anticipated, often the prices of real estate surrounding a project don’t seem to see the effects until it really starts to take shape. We also saw this around Columbia Heights a few year years ago.
