Fifteen years ago, this stately over 6000 square foot detached house in 16th Street Heights listed for $725,000. The listing notes that multiple offers would be presented at the broker’s office (that’s the way it used to happen). It settled in late May 2003 for $760,000., which would have generally been a high price for a house in DC at the time.
Fast forward just two years later, when it next sold in late June 2005 for $1,212,5000., which was $37,500. less than asking. The interior pics from that listing are must see. Agents in DC were just starting to use digital cameras for additional pics.
From 2006 to 2008, the number of detached houses sold in 16th Street Heights declined from 44 in 2005 (which many DC real estate industry veterans would describe as a peak year) to 29 in 2006, 26 in 2007, and 26 in 2008. Prices, however, remained relatively stable.
In 2008, the highest priced detached home sale in the neighborhood was $1,550,000. In 2009, the highest detached home sale was $815,000. Median net price dropped from $619,250. to $471,000.
Prices in the area began recovering and gaining upward momentum starting in 2012.
In 2017, the highest detached home sale in 16th Street Heights was $1,485,000., with a net median price for detached homes of $850,000. Year to date, the subject property is the highest detached sale in 2018, and net median price is up to $920,000. for detached homes in the legal subdivision of 16th Street Heights.
The listing agent for this transaction was Gail Milazzo with Long and Foster Real Estate Inc. Jennifir Birtwhistle, with Weichert, REALTORS, represented the Purchaser.

From Kids in Need of Defense (KIND):
Wed Jul 11, 2018 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm
5501 14th Street, NW
Join us for a fundraiser for Kids in Need of Defense (KIND), which defends the rights of child immigrants and refugees. Donate now (by buying a ticket), and then come to Moreland’s on July 11 for drinks and company!
**UPDATE: DC Brau has generously donated a keg of El Hefe Speaks to the cause! So, your first beer is on them. Many thanks to both DC Brau and Moreland’s Tavern for supporting this important cause.**
As you know, in the past few months, the government forcibly separated more than 2,000 immigrant children from their parents and placed them in shelters along our southern border. While that practice has ended, there’s no clear plan for reuniting those children with their families. And additional children — many seeking asylum — are now being detained, with their families, in jail-like settings.
The situation remains grave. (more…)
Hahaha not quite as exciting as the metro visit but I love the graffiti in the background. Thanks to Michael for sending: “This deer was wandering around outside our office at 16th & Colorado NW.”
If you spot a hawk or any interesting wildlife around town, lunching or otherwise, and get a good photo please send in an email where you spotted it to [email protected] and I’ll add it to the queue. Hawks around Town is made possible by a generous grant from the Ben and Sylvia Gardner foundation.
