I took a sneak peek of the new Jackie Lee’s at 116 Kennedy Street, NW and it’s time to get excited. Given the space and the people involved I feel like this has the potential become the Red Derby/Wonderland for the neighborhood. This is a very good thing. Stay tuned and in the meantime they are hiring servers and cooks. Those interested can email resume to [email protected]

Good Deal or Not Revisited (GDoN-R) is a weekly post that reviews the settled sales data of a recent individual real estate transaction in the District of Columbia. Each post is intended as a case study and a snapshot of the real estate market at a particular moment in time. GDoN-R generally posts on Friday in the late morning.

GDoN-R has been written exclusively for PoPville since 2009 by Suzanne Des Marais. Suzanne is a practicing Realtor with Compass. Unless specifically noted, neither she nor the company that she is affiliated with represented any of the parties or were directly involved in the transaction reported below. Unless otherwise noted, the source of information is MRIS (Metropolitan Regional Information Systems), which is the local multiple listing system and/or Smartcharts by Showingtime. Information is deemed reliable but not guaranteed.

Featured Property: 2438 2nd St NE
Legal Subdivision: Brookland
Advertised Subdivision per Listing: Brookland
Bedrooms: 3 Baths: 2.5 Parking: Street Ownership: Fee Simple
Original List Price: $549,000. List Price at Contract: $535,000.
List Date: 9/7/2017 Days on Market: 11
Settled Sales Price: $545,000.
Seller Subsidy: $3000.
Settlement Date: 10/18/2017
Transaction type: Standard

Original GDoN post can be seen: here.

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…)

You can talk about whatever is on your mind – quality of life issues, a beautiful tree you spotted, scuttlebutt, or any random questions/thoughts you may have. But please no personal attacks and no need to correct people’s grammar. This is a place to vent and/or celebrate things about daily life in D.C.

I’ve been looking forward to refreshing this question for a long time given all the changes in our fine District. So without further ado, where you living these days?

Since 2015 I’ve been in that little hamlet between Tenleytown and Van Ness called North Cleveland Park. You?

Ed. Note: There are too many neighborhoods to list in a poll but I’ll break it out by quadrant. For specific neighborhoods please list name of neighborhood and year you moved there.
