“6 bedrooms, three full baths at the corner of 13th and Buchanan St, N.W. in 16th Street Heights for $349,900. This place is gigantic. Looks like lots of work to be done. Maybe too much. The link has lots of pictures and info. Apparently the renovation has already begun.”

The original asking price was $565,250. So for a house this size do you think $349,900 sounds reasonable given the state it’s in?
