I’ve watched this building over the years since I had a listing across the street at the same time the property was sold as a shell. That was back in 2004. The entire building, in poor condition, was listed for $599,000. and sold for $725,000. Keep in mind this was pre a lot of the current Columbia Heights development but definitely in the midst of the condo boom.
Fortunately, the developer did a nice job with the space. They were able to get a total of four units plus some parking. This particular unit sold for $385,000. in late 2007 which means a $40k increase in three years. Not too shabby.
The original Good Deal or Not (GDoN) post was at the request of the owner. I have to say that for a GDoN post, there were a lot of comments. The last little bit of feedback from an anonymous poster pretty much summed up the gist of the rest of the comments. “FOR A ONE BEDROOM CONDO? INSANE!!” (All caps is from the original comment, not my edit).
I’m wondering if the newly former owner would like to step forward and take a bow.
