Although never listed for more than $500,000, this semi-detached home in the Takoma Park DC neighborhood required a series of price reductions and a number of days on market to get to contract.

The property is located on the east side of Blair Road, about a mile south of the Takoma Park Metro, and 3/4 of a mile to the Takoma Aquatic Center.

There is a fair amount of available single family home inventory in the Takoma DC neighborhoods, (including the legal subdivisions of Brightwood, Chillum, and Takoma Park). These areas present options for buyers in moderate price ranges who are willing to be a bit further from downtown in exchange for having a house and yard. Current listings for livable (as in “move in” condition) houses start at $359,990.

The listing agent for this sale was Jameela Charles with Home Source Real Estate Solutions. Marshall Carey with Redfin Corporation represented the buyer in this transaction.
