Like much of the rest of the city, condo conversions began appearing near the Georgia Ave/Petworth Metro Station in 2004. A number of previously single family homes on the same block as the subject properties have since been parceled into two or three units.

The number of condos sold in the immediate area surrounding the Petworth Metro has more than doubled from a total of four transactions in 2015, to nine settled so far in 2016. Including the subject property, six of these condo sales were duplexes, which are larger, typically two level units. The 2016 settled price points for these duplexes ranged from $639,999. to $849,900.

The listing agents for this property are Roby Thompson III and Peter Sarro with Long and Foster Real Estate, Inc. Jeffrey Reese with Real Living at Home assisted the Buyer.
