Located a short distance from the Potomac Ave Metro and Harris Teeter, this petite rowhome settled just under the $600,000. mark. (Remember when $600,000. seemed like a lot to pay for a house in DC? Not all that long ago, really…)
There have been a total of 31 fee simple sales in this immediate area since the beginning of 2017. Median net price for those 31 settled properties is $739,000. Currently, there are a total of four active listings of houses for sale in this area off of Pennsylvania Ave ranging from $829,900. to $1,299,000.
For Buyers in this price point that prefer not to purchase in common ownership communities (condos and co-ops), there are currently 61 choices offered for sale in the District of Columbia between $500,000. and $600,000. There are 79 active condos and co-ops in that price range.
