    That two-bedroom in Kalorama looks like a steal.

  1. to benji said at 11:10 am on Thursday March 4, 2010:

    $500/sf for a 2br is not a steal.

  1. benji said at 11:25 am on Thursday March 4, 2010:

    It is one of the lowest priced two-bedrooms in the neighborhood.

  1. to benji said at 11:42 am on Thursday March 4, 2010:

    That’s like saying a 400sf studio at $250k is a good deal.

    Just because the sales price is less than comps, it doesn’t mean you’re getting your money’s worth.

    The solarium looks pretty amazing, although as a master bedroom you would be up at the crack of dawn without curtains.
