    Really uninteresting place. I hate when owners replace sash windows with a single, unopenable (is that a word?) pane of glass. That would be a deal breaker. Not a deal.

    That’s an absurd price per square foot. I looked at at an unrenovated unit renting on the 1st floor for $2700 about a year ago. These places have awkward layouts and the rest of the apartment, aside from the living area facing U Street, get very little little. One of the bedrooms was definitely lacking a window.

    $600 per sqft is for REALLY nice condos near U St. This place is just so-so and listing for nearly $700 per sqft??? I’m guessing it is over listed by at least $100K.

    Poor deal. This should be closer to $500,000.

    Hahahha, they listed for $575K in June 2011, then dropped the price to $550K, when they took it off the market a month later (where I’m guessing it was already WAY overpriced).

    Now 2 years later, they list for $635K? The market is hot, but it isn’t that hot. They might get $500K, that would be a fair price imo.
