In reading the comments from the original Good Deal or Not (GDoN) , it is interesting that nobody contested the advertised subdivision in this location. In the mid-2000’s…pre-H Street revival…this area was sometimes referred to as SoFlo. At this point, we might expect that proximity to H Street would encourage reference to “H Street” as a neighborhood (similar to “U Street” in NW).

Real estate stats for DC were released this week for February 2014 by Real Estate Business Intelligence (RBI), a subsidiary of MRIS. Condo prices remained fairly stable year-over-year (comparing February 2013 to February 2014). It is important to note that active inventory for condo listings was actually higher in February 2014 than the prior February. I mention that only because it significantly contrasts the story of what is going on with houses. Inventory for available houses for sales is down year-over-year by over 15%. Not surprisingly, supply and demand is in play as houses are getting bid up (like this one) and the median price for houses is concurrently up 15% from last February. This was the second highest sale for a house in this neighborhood over the past six months.

The listing agent was Tom Faison with RE/Max Allegiance and the buyer was represented by Crystal Crittenden of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage.
