This 3 bed/2 bath is going for $799,000.

Ed. Note: I always thought it would be brutal to live on Columbia Street and have to explain to everyone that it is Columbia Street in Shaw not Columbia Road in Adams Morgan…

    Heh, my first thought was “there’s no freaking chance Columbia is in Shaw”, until I read the editorial that reiterated the location. (I’m pretty sure Columbia St NW is all of one tiny block long.)
    I think this is a great deal.

      …..and it’s under contract. Knew it was too good to be true. I’m all but certain this went for all cash to a developer – unit across the street sold for 1.6. Put in 2-3k into this and sell for a similar amount.

        2-3K? Or 200K-300K?

          All it needs is upstairs floors, some touches on the baths, and work on the back yard. And paint, but that’s a given. More than $2-3K, but certainly not hundreds of thousands. Unless the developer wants to try to figure out a way to make this multiple units (pop back?). Then you could push hundreds of thousands, but the return would be yuge.

    Seems like there will be a bidding war

    Wow. Needs a little work to be nice, but I bet this goes well over ask. Closer to 950.

    It doesn’t work well as a developer flip, the ones across the street that got so much money didn’t require additions, this one is skinny and pretty tiny and require a lot of work, 300k minimum to then end up with a house that is still smaller than the ones across the street. This makes great sense for a buyer who wants to put some sweat equity in, a condo alternative, or a rental property

  • Shawnnnnnn

    This has to have gone to contract well above this asking price. I’d bet at least $850K. I live well east of here in a similar sized house and mine appraises at over $700K. Definitely a condo alternative buyer and not a developer. Usually those little two story houses are very difficult to pop up without a popback to match for a second set of stairs to the third floor. Not worth it at an asking price of $800K and likely buyers willing to pay more for it.

    So much the better if this got snagged by an ordinary buyer and not a developer.
