The original listing can be seen here: here.
Although only on the market for eleven days, the listing underwent a price reduction from the original $549,000. to $535,000. This quick improvement had its desired effect of catching the attention of presumably more than one interested buyer, sending the settled price relatively close to the original ask (at net $542,000.)
So far into 2017, there have been a total of 23 sales of fee simple houses in the Edgewood neighborhood, which overlaps the legal subdivision of Brookland in NE DC. The neighborhood is within blocks of higher priced Bloomingdale, as well as Red line Metro. (more…)
