The listing agent, Tom Lewis, was kind enough to chime in on the original Good Deal or Not (GDoN) comments. I am hoping he comes back to tell us how many offers they ended up with. Given the list to sale price ratio, which is a whopping 25% increase, let’s assume there was some competition.
In previous GDoN-Revisited posts, we’ve looked at sales in Trinidad west of Bladensburg Road. This property is located east of Bladensburg Road and north of Benning Road, in a triangular parcel that is geographically somewhat sectioned off from the rest of the neighborhood. Similar to most neighborhoods in DC, prices rose in this area from the early to mid 2000’s. In 2005, this home sold for net $355,000. In 2011, it sold as a foreclosure at net $208,081. Currently, there are no actively listed houses in this immediate area. There are four under contract, though, ranging from list prices of $174,917 to $452,000.
Although the tight inventory and high demand are driving prices up throughout the city, current prices actually seem to be on track for where they would have been if there had been steady incremental appreciation. Personally, I expect to see the current momentum continue for a while, but not indefinitely. I had my first Sequestration-related listing appointment with someone who expects to have less income in the near future and is thinking about retiring early, and then a conversation later the same day with someone else who is bracing for a decrease in income.
Thomas Lewis with Redfin Corporation represented the seller. Ashton Vessali with Weichert, Realtors represented the buyer.

This morning at about 2:30 am, five people were shot inside a club in the 2400 block of Benning Road, NE.
A woman and four men received non-life threatening injuries when a man inside the bar shot at patrons.
We do not have any suspect, nor have we discovered a motive for this shooting.

A reader sent word of a major police presence in Ledroit Park late Friday afternoon:
“Above is a picture from the corner of 4th and T Street NW. Cops have been here since I got home around 4:30pm. They haven’t told us anything except to stay inside they aren’t letting folks come in or out of their homes at this time.”
On the Ledroit Park listserve, Jana Baldwin updates:
“The suspect and victim that were involved in the shooting last night knew each other.”
MPD tweeted around 4am Sunday Morning:
