I normally don’t like to show houses already under contract but I decided to show this one because it was a reader request and it’s an area of DC that I don’t normally show. So firstly, what neighborhood is this exactly – Edgewood, Eckington? I think Redfin lists Brookland, which can’t be right…

Anyway, the house looks pretty amazing. Since it went under contract so quickly was $450,000 a ridiculously good deal?
