The gist of some of the comments on the original Good Deal or Not (GDoN) post began with the sentiment, “for over a million, I expect…”

Many years ago, when I was a new agent and had a lot of time on my hands, I used to make the rounds of Tuesday open houses (which are specifically for agents) with my new agent buddy. We would head straight for the highest priced homes because they usually served the best lunches. Seriously, though, for a couple of rookie agents, it was a lot of fun to check out these homes that we could neither afford nor had any clients for. I well remember, however, that I was often disappointed when I saw what a million dollars would actually buy.

Reality is that people will pay a premium to live in locations that offer particular perks or conveniences. Those of us who choose to live downtown often sacrifice square footage for convenience. What is it worth to live within two blocks of a Metro, or down the street from The Phillips Collection?

Monica Boyd of Coldwell Banker represented the seller. Per the listing, there was no buyer agent involved in the transaction.

  • It’s a lovely block. Superb location. They had trouble selling that house for the longest time. Guessing the seller bought a parking space somewhere nearby so they could transfer it with the unit. This house had no parking. Also, sadly, the block like much of of Dupont had rodent issues.
