Good Deal or Not (GDoN) commenters were quite optimistic about this property. There was some discussion regarding, um, some safety matters on the block, but one anonymous reader went as far as to say, “I think the Hipchick follow up on this one will show it goes for 25k over asking.” It actually ended up selling a hefty $60,000. above the list price.

Entering a new decade has prompted me to review real estate numbers over the past ten years for specific neighborhoods. I’m seeing some interesting contrasts. Not all neighborhoods in DC have responded the same to the erratic changes in the marketplace. If this information is of interest, I will include it in future posts for other neighborhoods. See below for a picture of the real estate activity in Mount Pleasant. Note that this set of data focuses on single family houses, and excludes condos. Data after the jump.
