Commenters to the original Good Deal or Not (GDoN) post were generally not in favor of the price of this small one bedroom unit with a loft near 14th Street NW. There was a subsidy paid by the seller of $9300., but even figuring that into the net, this unit settled at $661 per square foot, which is on the high side for a re-sale. That said, the smaller the unit, the price per square footage goes up incrementally, so not overly shocking. In relation, high end new construction units at 14th and W St NW are attracting over $800 per square foot.
Currently, there are a total of 74 active listings for condo units all around NW DC priced under $300,000. Buyers who generally qualify around this price range may have some income related opportunities to tap into. Some specific DC benefits for buyers with moderate income include tax abatement, and down payment and closing cost assistance through the Home Purchase Assistance Program or HPAP.
The listing agent for the subject property sale was James Grant with Keller Williams Capital Properties. Aaron Smith of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices PenFed Realty represented the buyer in this transaction.
