The comments on the original Good Deal or Not GDoN post led to an interesting discussion of the pros and cons of buying a home renovated by an investor.
This Eckington home is located a few blocks from the Bloomingdale commercial areas, which now include North Capitol Street (The Washington Firehouse Restaurant), First Street NW, and Rhode Island Avenue NW. This is a fee simple home with a basement, parking, and a porch and front yard. The interior has been completely updated with a new kitchen, baths, floors, etc.
Currently, there is only one active listing in the neighborhood for a house priced under $600,000., which is located on a busy street and reportedly suffered recent fire and water damage.
Since July 2014, there have been a total of 35 settled sales of fee simple houses in the NE Eckington neighborhood. These have ranged from $318,250 to $835,000.
The listing agent for this sale was Leo Pareja with Keller Williams Realty Falls Church. Daryl Judy with Washington Fine Properties, LLC represented the buyer in this transaction.
