When a Good Deal or Not (GDoN) post garners 110 comments, there’s got to be some controversy. In this case, it’s a nearly $900,000. net sale for a particularly large fully renovated house in the NE DC neighborhood of Trinidad, on busy Florida Ave, no less.
To date, the next highest sale in the Trinidad neighborhood was a January sale down the street at 1222 Florida Ave NE for $590,000. The property is within less than half a mile to neighborhoods that are regularly seeing high end prices (notably south of H St NE and closer to Lincoln Park, although prices are also rising at the lower part of Eckington to the west).
In May 2012, some apparently savvy investors paid $286,000. in cash for the property.
The listing agent was Matt Tekmen of Fairfax Realty, Inc. Dyanne Branand of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage represented the purchaser.
