This house is located at 1923 13th Street, Northwest. The listing says:

Legal 1BR rental w/ C of O has gas fireplace, full bath & W/D. Great condo alternative as the rental unit can subsidize a substantial portion of the mortgage.”

This 5 bed/3.5 bath is going for $1,539,900.

  • That price seems like a steal.

      Indeed. Being a neighbor and homeowner I would think at least 1.8 mil. (hopefully)

        I went to this open house. While I think they will get asking, I don’t think it’s a good deal. The house was re-muddled, not remodeled. The trim throughout the house is different styles and is caked with paint, the door from the owner’s suite down stairs to the basement unit is a piece of plywood painted white with a tiny knob on it. There is cracked plaster, an ancient a/c unit on the roof, a weird plastic window from the master bedroom into the bathroom, since the bathroom is not a true master.

        • Ouch, that’s unfortunate. Hard to tell a lot of those details from small pics, but things like that show a general lack of attention to detail that make me skeptical about what’s been done on the more important aspects.

          “the door from the owner’s suite down stairs to the basement unit” — I thought “legal rentals” (i.e., rentals with certificates of occupancy) weren’t allowed to have connecting stairs to the upstairs.
          Maybe there are connecting stairs that are walled off on the basement side but open on the first-floor side??

          All stuff that is easily fixed, if you ask me. What would cost more is covering the ugly (to me) exposed brick up again, and changing those horrible (to me) brown bathroom tiles, both the light and the dark ones.
