The original listing can be seen here: here.

This Capitol Hill rowhome close to Lincoln Park was on the market in February listed at $799,000., only to be removed from the market a week later. I don’t know if it has anything to do with the reason for the short initial listing period, but remember all that snow we had this winter? The home listed again in the Spring, $69,000. higher than previously.

There was some discussion in the comments on the original Good Deal or Not (GDoN) post about the note in the listing that the property is being sold “AS IS”. Although often seen on distressed listings, having a seller explicitly state that they prefer an AS IS sale does not necessarily equate to something being materially wrong with the property. In a market with less than two months supply of active listing inventory (six months is generally considered a balanced market), it is not unusual for sellers to negotiate this term.

An AS IS contract on a property usually allows for a General Inspection Contingency. The General Inspection Contingency differs from the full blown Inspection Contingency in that the purchaser still conducts an inspection and the expectation of further negotiation over items requiring repair is removed. Following inspection, the purchaser either chooses to continue with the contract or walk.

The listing agent was Jenn Smira of Lindsay Reishman Real Estate, Inc. There was no buyer agent information reported for the transaction.
