by Shilpi Paul

In Above Asking, we sift through real estate records and highlight homes that recently sold for above their asking prices.


Above Asking: A Home for Two and a Kalorama Contemporary: Figure 1

Kalorama Rowhouse Big Enough For Two Families

While unusual and pricey — two characteristics that ordinarily would make it harder for a home to find the right buyer — this 4,468-square-foot Kalorama listing was under contract in just three days. The home is divided into two spacious two-bedroom units, and the prospect of renting out one of them surely made the home seem like a sweeter deal. There were likely several interested buyers as well: the home sold for almost $200,000 above the original asking price.

  • Address: 1835-1837 Wyoming Avenue NW (map)
  • Asking Price: $1.345 million
  • Sale Price: $1.511 million
  • Bedrooms: Four
  • Bathrooms: 3.5
  • Year Built: 1912
  • Days on Market: 3

H Street Condo in the Logan School

Condo units in former school buildings are usually sought-after properties, so we weren’t too surprised when this one-bedroom in the Logan School found a buyer in four days. Now that the sale has closed, we see that the final sales price wasn’t too much higher than the original asking price, indicating that the asking price was appropriate for the market. The top-floor, one-bedroom unit has some cool angled ceilings and skylights throughout.

  • Address: 301 G Street NE, #35 (map)
  • Asking Price: $392,750
  • Sale Price: $399,000
  • Bedrooms: One
  • Bathrooms: One
  • Square Footage: 730
  • HOA fees: $381/month
  • Days on Market: 4

Kalorama Condo Renovated in a Contemporary Style

Featured as a Best New Listing in late June, this one-bedroom condo is located at Le Bourget, a historic condo building named after a neighborhood in the suburbs of Paris. The building went up in 1927, but this one-bedroom listing was recently renovated in a contemporary style. The kitchen is outfitted with a breakfast bar and shiny appliances and is now open to the living room, and the floors and bathroom also look updated. The listing didn’t stay on the market for long; a buyer snapped it up in less than a week for more than $50,000 above asking.

  • Address: 2127 California Street NW, #406 (map)
  • Asking Price: $399,000
  • Sale Price: $450,000
  • Bedrooms: One
  • Bathrooms: One
  • Square Footage: 732
  • HOA fees: $338/month
  • Days on Market: 6
