In this week's edition of Above Asking, UrbanTurf features a couple listings that sold for just slightly above their original asking prices.
A $5,000 Premium For A Mini Compound in Alexandria
The arrangement of this Alexandria home -- with one main building and two annexes that could be put to any number of uses -- resulted in a buyer coming along just 48 hours after it was listed and paying $5,000 above the list price. The primary house features a spacious patio, and inside there is a primary bedroom with a fireplace, a modern kitchen and a full bath, and the a-frame ceiling give off a country-esque feel. Large windows, skylights and sliding doors ensure that the space gets lots of light. In the back of the lot, the first annex features a living area with another full bathroom. The second annex is unfinished and would be perfect for a studio or workshop. Out back, a covered parking space features a charging port for electric vehicles.
