The listing says:

“Shaw/ Truxton Circle is a great place to be, not far from the weekend farmers market and close to the New York Ave Metro as well as NOMA shopping, and downtown. Great house with plenty of upside. Bring your imagination and make the place your own. 3 bed and 2 bath along with a great outdoor space for the garderner. Plenty of street parking. Don’t wait because at this price it won’t last.”

You can see a few photos here.

The reader writes:

“My husband and I are a young couple trying to find our ways into buying a house in this great but challenging city and we came across a house where it is hard to put our finger on the neighborhood it belongs to, and therefore identify it as a “good deal or not”. The house is located at N Street at the edge of Truxton Circle/Shaw/Mt Vernon.”

This 3 bed/2 bath is going for $399,000. It’s hard to tell without more photos but what advice would you give the reader?
