The latest installment of Above Asking takes a look back at two listings in the suburbs that ended up selling for five and six figures over listing price.


$76,000 Above Asking in Hyattsville

Located a short walk from Magruder Park and the trail network in Hyattsville, this mid-century Tudor-style two-bedroom went under contract in six days for $76,000 above the original listing price. The living room has a wood-burning fireplace with a stone façade and offers access to a sunroom-like porch with louvered windows on three sides. The kitchen has parquet hardwood floors and a tiled backsplash above the L-shaped countertop, and the two bedrooms share a full bath on the main level. The second bath is on the lower level, along with a rec room, a laundry room, and access to the interior garage. A partially-finished attic offers the opportunity for bonus space or a new owner's suite. The house also has a front stoop, a rear deck, and a generous amount of yard space.

$145,000 Above Asking for A Silver Spring Stone Cottage

Considering that this four-bedroom a block from the Sligo Avenue Neighborhood Park received 22 offers, it comes as no surprise that it ended up selling for well above its asking price.

The lower level houses a bedroom, laundry room, and a rec room with white-painted brick walls and a wet-bar nook. The backyard has garden areas and a detached former garage that now serves as a wooden-floored work studio.
