$175,000 Above Asking in Takoma Park

by Nena Perry-Brown

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.

  • Sold Price: $758,700
