Brookland is a NE DC neighborhood known for large yards and an abundance of fee simple properties including rowhomes like the subject property, as well as detached farm houses and bungalows. The main commercial area is 12th Street NE, near Metro, with several recent and ongoing development projects in the vicinity.
Commenters to the original Good Deal or Not (GDoN) post called this one. Several folks predicted that it would sell above list. One person even noted that their agent said to “expect it to go for $575,000.”
As with other neighborhoods in DC, Brookland is experiencing a very tight market for active listing inventory. Stats from Real Estate Business Intelligence (RBI) show that in February 2015, there were about half the number of homes listed as compared to the five year average for the month of February. With less than one months supply of inventory (a balanced market is generally considered a six month absorption rate), Brookland is definitely a sellers market right now.
There are currently a total of 18 fee simpleactive listings in Brookland, ranging from $284,900. to over $1 million.
