Whereas everyone loves a Brookland bungalow, barrel top townhomes, located in SW DC’s Charles Goodman-designed River Park Mutual Homes community, get mixed reviews in PoPville. It seems people either love them or hate them. (more…)

Besides the price, what has changed? (more…)

“Dear PoPville,

My partner and I are under contract to purchase a home in Shaw and expect to close the 2nd week of December. We are planning a large renovation project before we move in and expect that process to take about 6 months. Currently, we own a condo in Bloomingdale that we plan on selling closer to when the renovation project is completed.

We recently received a letter from a real estate agent representing a potential buyer for our unit. (more…)

Thanks to Steve for sending:

“Listed for 70,000. Sold for 135k. I wonder what will be built on this lot or if anything can even be built on the lot due to zoning? Wouldn’t surprise me if the next door neighbor purchased to extend their property/add an addition to their existing home.”

Bright MLS says 1706 Florida Avenue, NW sold on November 2nd for $135,000.

So you guys think something will be built here, if so what? Or do you think it’s more likely to be some breathing room for a neighbor?
