Perseverance, a good solid price reduction, and dwindling inventory finally resulted in a settled sale for this upper Columbia Heights property. Located just a tad over half a mile from DC USA (referred to in the listing as “USA Mini Mall”), my buyers in this price range would consider this close in. It looks like the Seller invested in several updates since it was purchased during the pre-Target era back in the 1997 for $139,000. Someone noted in the “Good Deal or Not” (GDoN) comments that being an end unit was not an advantage, but I find that people like the extra windows and not having an immediate neighbor on one side.
The original GDoN post ran last November, shortly after the house was first listed. With the combination of insanely low mortgage interest rates and the looming deadline of the Federal First Time Homebuyers Tax Credit, Fall 2009 is finding us in a very different market than the same timeframe in 2008.
