Real Estate Fresh Finds is a weekly selection of newly-listed properties in the District, brought to you by Real Living At Home. 

We’re officially in that 2-4 week window of weather that most people call ‘Fall,’ but in DC it’s just essentially a quick break between Summer and Winter. There’s over 200+ plus homes that went on the market in the past week, meaning you’ve got another great week of house hunting. Check out this week’s Fresh Finds below:

  • The most expensive home of the week is a $5.9mil 6-bedroom Georgian near Embassy Row that has a heated pool/adjoining spa, full-service wine cellar, cathedral ceilings and multi-tiered terraces.
  • A Columbia Heights townhouse that has a ton of space and is walkable to everything.
  • This 1-bedroom Petworth condo has all the simple things you need, including a price tag under $270k and a “treetop view of Sherman Circle.”
  • Ever wanted aluminum foil windows or a toilet painted with a goose on it? Then this REO Property of the week is for you!

It seems to be the week for a heavy dose of rowhouses to hit the market in DC. While there’s always an abundance of condos for sale, it’s a good time to jump on one of these renovated, almost always 3-level, 2+ bedroom rowhouses while the selling is still hot. Check out this week’s Fresh Finds below:

  • The most expensive home to hit the market this week is a $7.49mil Beaux Arts style in the Kalorama area that features more bathrooms than bedrooms and markets itself as ‘a true “smart house”‘ but at time of post we’re unable to find any smart features listed.
  • A Federal rowhouse near C St. NE on “a quiet tree-lined street” with some eye-catching hardwood floors and woodwork as well as a master suite with its own private balcony.
  • Self-described as a “quintessential Petworth row house,” this 3 bedroom has not only been “lovingly maintained,” but has a “charming front porch” and an “open & cheerful” basement. Insert your favorite adjectives of choice here.
  • Just north of Logan Circle is one of the pricier Bank-Owned properties of the week we’ve seen lately, but it’s a 3-bedroom condo in a good neighborhood, so maybe worth checking out.

Whether you’re looking to be a landlord or have buku-bucks for a gigantic house with rooms you’ll never use, this week’s new homes to hit the market cover a wide range of styles and price ranges. Check out our “Fresh Finds” below:

  • Our winner for the most expensive home of the week (and quite possibly the year) is an $18m, 15,000 sq. ft., obnoxiously large Colonial in Wesley Heights with “50 ft. heated pool and separate guest/pool house” as well as 2 garages, exercise room and “theatre.”
  • This row house in the Logan Circle/U Street area is technically 2 2-bedroom units, that says were previously rented for as high as $2,300/month, meaning that $900k price tag could get offset by rental income.
  • End unit 3 bedroom on the edge of Petworth has both a garage and backyard, two very rare and coveted features in DC.
  • A “spacious loft-like studio unit” in the Kalorama Triangle looks fairly manageable for being your REO property of the week.

There aren’t quite as many homes to hit the market this week compared to the past few, but the variety of price points seems to be better represented with almost 150 listings under $600k and another 100 in the upper, more D.C.-usual prices of $600k-$2m. Whether you fall into the first category or the second, there’s no lack of options if you’re house-hunting. Check out our “Fresh Finds” below:

  • A six bedroom, 5,500 finished sq. ft. detached home in Cleveland Park for $3.5m is the most expensive home to hit the market in DC in the past week.
  • If you’ve ever wanted to live in a home that looks straight out of a fairy tale, this 5 bedroom in Forest Hills has it, including a parapet, arches and covered in green, lush ivy.
  • This 2 bedroom/2 bathroom condo at the edge of Petworth has been recently reduced and has some of the most unique paint colors we’ve ever seen in a home.
  • It needs a lot of updating, but so does the Cleveland Park retail strip that you’d be frequenting…this REO property of the week in McLean Gardens is a one bedroom ready to be revitalized.

Property listings haven’t seemed to slow much since last week. Whether you’re looking for a condo, a rowhouse or a Scrooge McDuck-sized mansion to swim in your money, there’s something for everyone on the market this week. Check out our “Fresh Finds” below:

  • This unnecessarily huge mansion in Kent has been on and off the market for the past 5 years, originally listed for $16m and now down to the low, low price of $8.1m, making this the most expensive property to hit the market this week and the 6th most expensive in DC this year.
  • Burleith 3 bedroom Colonial rowhouse “sold as-is and in need of some updating” could be the perfect renovation project with “vision, creativity (and a little $$)”.
  • A new construction farmhouse in Petworth has an intriguing layout and is 1 of 4 units in the building overall, this being the larger of the two on the right half.
  • A fairly well-maintained and updated studio condo near Southwest Waterfront for under $260k is the best REO/Bank-Owned property of the week.

  • A designer rowhouse in Petworth is one of three for sale on this street, with this one having the most expensive (and well-earned) price tag.
  • A 4-bedroom detached Colonial that “is in need of kitchen appliances/cabinets” is your REO property of the week.

While a majority of the DMV residents had their eyes hidden behind eclipse glasses on Monday, the real estate market’s summer shadow began to lift too. Check out some new listings below if you didn’t go blind from the eclipse.

  • The most expensive home listed in the District this week is this swanky 4-level townhouse in Georgetown.
  • Everyone loves a bank-owned property, especially in Petworth, but you’ll have to bid smart since this one you have to score via auction.
  • It might not look like much, but this tear-down in Brightwood is already gutted and has potential if you have the cash to remodel or feel like demolishing and starting from scratch on a prime lot.
  • This Capitol Hill rowhouse is interesting as it’s supposedly the former home of famous bootlegger, George Cassiday, known as the “Man in the Green Hat”.

July’s median sales price was $570,000, matching last year’s median exactly and tying the highest July level on record.

Prices may be topping off but supply is still currently low. Many District residents are on those late summer vacations, meaning there are August home deals available and waiting for you below:

  • Ever thought about being your own landlord? The most expensive listing this week is this 8-unit condo building that’s being sold as one package for the low, low price of $3.4million — that’s only $425k per unit!
  • This completely remodeled home in Brightwood has everything you could want, including a separate lower-level suite to rent out or house your au-pair, in-laws or cranky teenager.
  • A foreclosure in Petworth for less than $130k and it’s substantially cheaper than a lot of the other 1-bedroom units sold in the building.
  • Did you hear yellow countertops are making a comeback? We didn’t either. This 3-bedroom rowhouse in Brentwood is at a good price.
