Commenters to the original GDoN post called this one. At $1.4M, it was ahead of the market. The property ultimately settled for 76% of the original list price.
Including this transaction, there have been a total of eight properties sold over $1M in Brookland. One even exceeded the $1.4M price point (Listing agents for that 2016 sale were Shemaya Klar and Jake Abbott with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices PenFed Realty, and Robert Sanders with TTR Sotheby’s International Realty brought the buyer).
Average price for a detached single family house in the legal subdivision of Brookland based on all of 2017 is $686,081. In 2016, it was $666,064. Inventory is super, super low, and demand super high, so we may see that number push up this Spring.
For the commenters on the original thread that pondered the seven figure market East of the River, this is what you can get for $1.1M East of the River .
The listing agents for this transaction were John Mahshie and Ron Mangas Jr. with TTR Sotheby’s International Realty represented the Seller. Leyla Phelan, with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, represented the Purchaser.
