There were some comments in the original Good Deal or Not (GDoN) post about the sales history of this property, so here is are the links with pics:
The earliest listed sale of this property that we have access to data on is this 2011 listing, which shows the property condition as not fancy and staged, but definitely livable. You can see pics on that link (click the camera icon to the left once you open the link). So, in 2011, in livable condition the home sold for $315,000. Three years ago.
A little over six months later, the home was updated and sold for $640,000. and you can see those pics on this link.
A little more than two years later, the current sale occurred (see subject link above) in basically the same condition as the previous sale and very close to $100,000. in added market value.
On the original GDoN post, one commenter expressed concern at this ascent in price. According to Real Estate Business Intelligence, the median price for detached homes in the 16th Street Heights neighborhood during the third quarter of 2009 was $519,900. In the third quarter of 2014, that median price had gone up to $777,000. As we’ve seen in other Good Deal or Not reviews of neighborhood value history, this type of increase is not unusual for neighborhoods in the District of Columbia.
The listing agents were Melinda Estridge and Scott Sachs of Long and Foster. Chris Fries of McInearney Associates, Inc. represented the buyer in this transaction.
