As often happens, there is a short debate in the comments on the original Good Deal or Not (GDoN) post about proximity to stuff, like Barracks Row and Eastern Market. Without paying a whole lot of attention to the address, I was picturing the house pretty much in Maryland, only to see on the listing map that it’s across from Congressional Cemetery, and a whopping four minute walk to the Stadium Armory Metro stop (two quick stops to Barracks Row…). Location in DC, of course, is relative, so maybe if you’re a diehard NW resident, yes, this is going to feel far away from everything.

There are currently a total of 8 active listings for houses within a half mile of the subject property, priced from $550,000. to $784,900. There are 17 houses in the area currently under contract. Over the past six months, there have been 64 settled sales of houses with a median of 10 days on the market, suggesting that (like much of the city at the present moment) listings are moving fast and there is a lot of demand.

The listing agent was Joel Martin of RE/MAX Allegiance. Jeffrey Tyler of Beasley Real Estate represented the buyer.
