The latest installment of Above Asking revisits two recently-featured listings in the suburbs that sold for five- and six-figure premiums.
$83,700 Above Asking in Silver Spring
It seems fitting that a Silver Spring house that spent five decades off the market would sell for five figures above asking. The 2,000 square-foot three-bedroom leads with a front porch and inside, the living room has a brick fireplace. The dining room has double exposure and the farmhouse kitchen has a butler's pantry. There is also a lower level with a built-in bar and a generous backyard. The home received multiple offers and sold for almost $84,000 above its original list price earlier this month.

The skylit owner's bedroom has exposed beams beneath the pitched ceiling, and the backyard has tiered patio spaces and a detached garage.
