Original GDoN is: here.
Once again, much of the conversation from the original Good Deal or Not (GDoN) post focused on crime and how it affects the perceived desirability of a particular location. I can’t believe that nobody even touched the subject of this property being advertised as “Capitol Hill”. Personally, I would have gone with “SoFlo”. Or is it really “H Street” or “Atlas District”? The name of the condominium is “NOMA Overlook”, which is understandable given that NOMA now actually has a real live Harris Teeter and is a mere six blocks away.
The listing comments mention that there are a total of six units in the building. The two current active listings appear in the link above. Given that this relatively recent settlement is reported to have been financed with an FHA loan product, I assume that the other couple of units have settled as well. That comp information has not been shared as yet. Unfortunately, for the one unit that does show as settled, we can’t calculate the price per square foot since the listing does not include the square footage and the recent condo conversion units have not appeared in tax records yet.
