    Wouldn’t call it a steal, but about as good of a deal as one will find these days for a newly-renovated house. Wish it had a yard, but can’t have everything I suppose. Although this is not far from the metro in terms of actual distance, I don’t find the walk from here to RI Ave Metro to be a particularly pleasant one. The new pedestrian bridge definitely makes it a much more pleasant (albeit only marginally shorter) walk than having to walk under the bridge, though.

  • Why are there rose petals on the bed!??!?!

  • Now I love red, but I think the stager overdid the “pop” of red just a tad, no?

  • Finishes don’t look great. First floor ceilings look low. Lot is small. Location is fine but not great. Basement is definitely not rentable. I bet this goes closer to 600 or just below.

  • I wish I worked in an industry where I can make published errors like: Capital Hill, subway (ahem, Metro in DC), and “on-suite.”

    Also, do listings just play buzzword bingo? Downtown, H Street, VA, and 295 aren’t things I think of for a house in Edgewood.

    On 2nd thought, I swear I’ve seen this listing before, or at least one with the same errors and rose petals.

    Two fun facts: House was listed for $725K on May 15 and then price lowered to $649K on the same day. I wonder what’s up with that. Other fun fact is that buyer will be owner #5 of this property since the beginning of 2004. One of the owners (the current one) is obviously a flipper, but the others stayed a short while and then moved. Wonder what’s up with that.

  • I’ve come to really love the weirdly-proportioned table with a laptop on it in real estate pictures. Might as well take a picture of a sign that says “subtract one from this listing’s bedroom count.”

    Another shower with a landing strip. When will this cheap trend end?

  • I guess this is a personal preference but I hate hate hate that floor with the visible seems and distressed look. It looks scratched and dirty (or maybe it is scratched and dirty?).

  • I appreciate that they are trying to max out the storage but that lone cabinet between the kitchen window and door looks a little odd. And the picture of just a toilet is kind of weird.
