Above Asking: Big Premiums in Falls Church and Tenleytown

  • September 27th 2021

by Nena Perry-Brown

This edition of Above Asking highlights three recently-featured listings, two of which sold for six-figure premiums and another that went for an odd amount above asking.

An Odd Premium Near The Parks

While it is unusual for a listing to sell for above asking, it is usually by a more round number than $27,761, which was the premium on this Takoma bungalow a block from The Parks at Walter Reed. The living room has a painted brick wood-burning fireplace, and there is a bonus room on the main level with window cut-outs into an attached parlor and a sunroom. The lower level has a workshop, a bedroom, a bathroom, and benches built-in surrounding a pillar.
