Despite rising mortgage interest rates and the steam bath-like DC summer weather, buyers remain out in full force. One might even speculate that the rise in interest rates is contributing to the frantic demand, with buyers intent upon locking in at what are still considered historically low rates. Although listing inventory appears to be ticking up, the market remains extremely fast paced.
The subject house did not have central air conditioning, a finished basement, or off street parking, yet the downtown location and historic charm of the property apparently attracted a lot of interest. The ultimate net settled sales price was 13% above the list price; a high percentage even in a zip code that is used to seeing prices bid over list. Since February 2013, the average sale in zip 20010 was bid up 2%.
The listing agent was Sue Jin Song of Century 21 New Millenium Real Estate. Amit Magdieli of Fairfax Realty represented the buyer.
