“I stumbled across this listing and it kind of surprised me.

A: It’s huge
B: It’s quite nice, but does need some updating in the kitchen/baths
C: It’s CHEAP for that location, it seems

Just surprising. My partner & I just purchased a 2 bedroom in Kalorama/Adams Morgan, but this listing gives me a bit of buyer’s remorse! With the lack of good, affordable 2-bedroom inventory in the area, I can’t imagine this will last long.”

What do you guys think – is this 2 bed/1bath a good deal at $499,000 ($398 condo fee)?
