Located half a block to Lincoln Park, and less than a third of a mile to Eastern Market and the associated Metro, this home didn’t quite make the initial asking price, but still sold in the upper $800’s. Since June 2013 and within a third of a mile radius, there were a total of 73 sales of fee simple homes. This sale falls in between the median and average settled sales prices of $844,000. and $908,026 respectively.

This home was on the market for 31 days. In most areas of the country, that would be considered a very short marketing period, however, the median days on market for this immediate area over this almost seven month time period was 8 days. Granted, the property was listed shortly before Thanksgiving. The price drop happened a month in, and apparently did the trick, as it moved to contract three days later and sold solidly above the motivating price.

Heather Davenport with Lindsay Reishman Real Estate, Inc. represented the seller. No buyer agent is noted.

  • Awesome house. One of my favorites!!!

    Yeah I knew once I saw that price drop that this would be going under contract quickly. That’s a pretty significant decrease.

  • Why only one shutter on the 2nd floor windows?

    • One shuttered windows, also known as “Blinking Windows” in the South or “Half-sies” in New England, were popular in the late 1870’s through the early 1890’s. The reason they came into vogue was two-fold: (1) aesthetics – people liked the symmetry of the two outside shutters, and (2) function – having the one shutter provided simple lighting options for those rooms.
